The food here is a little on the expensive side but it is sooo good and definitely worth it. The staff was also very accomodating.

You may be hard pressed to find better food and service, and greater Jazz is even more elusive. Whether you want apps, pasta, seafood or meat, you cannot go wrong. Every dish our party ordered was exceptional, but the lobster stood out. The best quality of anywhere lobster must be shipped to, and then cooked perfectly. And simply, words cannot describe Danny Sinoff's talent; you must hear it to believe it.

I read all the glowing reviews about this place but I gotta say it was a bit pretentious.

The bar staff are friendly enough but the clientele seemed a bit stuffy and geriatric.
I can't vouch for the food since I did not eat here but it looked okay even though when waiters served a nearby table of 8, the food did not appear to be warm since there was no steam coming off the plates.

The other thing is make sure you get out of the way of the servers or they may run into you such is the hectic pace of the place when it's packed.

We also quickly tired of the Frank Sinatra and "Sound of Music" covers. The ability of the musicians to play improvisational jazz is very limited despite the place's claim to a jazz heritage on its website.

I think this place may be so popular due to the lack of venues catering to the so-called mature crowd in Fort Myers rather than it being a bonafide urbane supper club.

Never would I guess that such an upscale restaurant would be in a small strip mall opposite cheap retail outlets. Don't let that discourage you from spending an evening(s) in this wonderful place. Everything is tip top..... the drinks, food, service and music. The Roadhouse Cafe is a marvelous experience.

We have only been twice and will return again due to the fine food and atmosphere. I've had the steak and Lamb, and the wife loves the seafood dishes. We enjoy dancing to the entertainment, and the bar is huge to enjoy a pre or after dinner drink!
