This is not a restaurant you would find by driving by. It is located in an outdoor Strip Mall in kind of a dumpy looking area, Big Lots is the anchor store. The restaurant was recommended by the Concierge of the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort and Spa where we were staying. It has a nice outdoor entrance once you finally find the place. Inside is absolutely beautiful! Old world ambience, beautiful bar, perfectly pressed lines, and quite small. You do not want to go without a reservation. Our food was outstanding. The dining started off with fresh hot slices of a baguette. My appetizer was beefstake tomato slices (perfectly ripened) w/buffalo Mozzerella cheese and asparagas spears and my husband had lobster bisque that had chunks of lobster in it, both were delicious. Our entrees included duck breast served with mashed sweet potatoes and vegetable and he had a filet migon w/garlic mashed potatoes and vegetable. The filet was so tender you almost did not need a knife to cut it. For desert we shared a Creme Brulee. We also had one glass of wine and coffee. Our bill totaled $94.00 before tip. Our server was David, always there when you need something, but not "in your face". He was just wonderful and we tipped 25%. I cannot say enough "good" about this hard to find restaurant.

The Roadhouse is a fine restaurant where you are always greeted with a smile, The lobster tails are to die for,. The whole ambiance of the place is wonderful. You will find great entertainment every night. Everything I've had on the menu has been great. If you are in the Fort Myers area this restaurant is a great value and well worth the visit. Be sure to bring a big appetite.

This is an outstanding resturant. Stunning roof, excellent service, live jazz-- good,true,real,tap your foot,jazz
The roast chicken is extra ordinary. They have done a fine job allowing for conversation and live music to co-exist.
Not inexpensive, nor should it be. This is a place where you get what you pay for and more.

Food was very good but a little pricey, however the band was the bomb and the atmosphere was great for couples.
