Description: Ford's Garage is your neighborhood burger and beer joint, where everyone is welcome. Located in Historic Downtown Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Miromar Outlets in Estero. Ford's Garage will give you the vibe of being in a 1920's service station/prohibition bar with its old style brick, dark colors, rich wood and hand-hammered copper bar top. With many more unique features too numerous to list, really making The Garage a fun place to visit! We are a gourmet burger bar serving up the finest varieties of Black Angus Beef, American Kobe, turkey, chicken, tuna, seafood and vegetarian products coupled with All Natural aged Cheeses and gourmet toppings. We also serve a variety of entrees including steaks, pasta, and ribs. Our lighter fare features fresh salads, grilled chicken, turkey and fresh fish. The emphasis is on high quality and homemade dishes that won't break your bank. Our Burgers of Fame give honor and recognition to many of our local celebrities, keeping our connection to the City of Fort Myers strong following the modeling of our associate restaurants, Los Cabos Cantina, The Firestone Grille- Martini Bar & Sky Bar, Capone's Coal Fired Pizza and The Boathouse Tiki Bar & Grill

I couldn't wait to visit Ford's Garage and was not disappointed. The decor is so clever and fun to look at. Indoor and outdoor bars available. The food was great and many choices are available. They have a huge selection of beers and very good pricing. Happy hour is 11-7. I can't say anything bad about this place, we plan to go back often while here. They have locations in downtown Ft. Myers and another at Miromar Outlets in Estero. It was mobbed but we chose to sit at the indoor bar and our bartender Gina took very good care of us. Don't miss Ford's Garage. If noise bothers you, maybe outside is better. The acoustics aren't great inside, but we didn't mind.

The grilled chicken Henry was superb. Lemon butter and pesto on top delicious. Crispin ale was very flavorful? The burger buns are stamped with the ford logo. They have an onion ring tree!!! Burgers were correctly cooked. The sweet potato fries and regular fires were great as was the cole slaw!

The decor of this restaurant makes it fun to visit in itself. We had read reviews that made us a bit unsure about the food, but decided to give it a go.

First of all, the staff was very friendly during our stay. We sat outside, where there were very few people.

We all had burgers, and they were all cooked to our requests. The taste was great.

As a dessert we had adult shakes, both strawberry and chocolate were nice.

Perhaps due to lower expectations, we felt this place was a very positive surprise. Will be going for burgers again.

Let's face it...the best thing about this place is the PLACE! Great concept, tied in with Firestone and Edison's. Set up to look like a 1920's service garage complete with Model A's on car lifts with spinning wheels! Décor is fantastic, staff fast & friendly. Great drink selections, many beers to choose from, I loved the Angry Orchard on tap. Food is very tasty, burger bun even has the logo seared onto them. FUN place but PRICEY. $10 for a burger, we go mostly for the WOW factor!
