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

We had dinner here with a group (another couple's recommendation). I was not impressed. It's just expensive burgers and very loud. The decor is antique cars and gas pumps with loud rock music playing. The burgers were typical, but they did not cook mine to order (rare). It was really busy and had a long waiting line. I would not go back. It's just not my kind of place when I am on vacation in South Florida.

We visit this restaurant often. The General Manager, Jeff, is always attentive and spends time making sure everything is good. Service has been fantastic and the staff are well trained and friendly. On several occasions we have had the server mention our favorite food or beer and they also make sure our two special needs grandkids have everything they need to be happy. The hamburgers are awesome and you can design your own if the standard ones don't satisfy you. Their onion soup is excellent and the selection of craft beer is tops.

We stoped at the Ford Garage Super Bowl Sunday. We wanted to get something to eat be for the big game. The bar area was big and lots of fun I had a Beer Flight with Sweetwater 420, Redd's, Orange Blossom Pilsner, and New Belgium Fat Tire it was fun trying something new and was really good with the Fish N Chips. We also had the Rib Sliders very good also. Everyone was so nice and we had a very nice time there. We already had plans for the Super Bowl or we would had stayed for some of the game it was so nice. It was a fun place to stop.

They only serve hamburgers, but really good hamburgers. Lots of Model A car's to look at, it's like a garage. They even have the old time bell that rings when you pull into the parking lot. The bar has a frost tray to sit your drinks on to keep your drink cold. Fun atmosphere, but lots of people so very loud. Great staff, friendly, and hard working.
