“1965 back to the future”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Wanna relive a 1965 Fabulous Supper Club dining experience replete with white tablecloths a Jazz band and a dance floor ? Go to the Roadhouse Cafe in Ft. Myers. A lot of fun with top flight food . A menu that is totally complete with Italian and American offerings. Dam was this fun. Sinatra Music on Saturday night and plenty of folks willing to dance. Many age groups from the 30 somethings to the oxygen tank troupers. Everyone goes away smiling. Try this spot out. It is a treasure.

“Supperclub atmosphere with Entertainment and Fine Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Well to start, this place is in a shopping mall. That concerned us as we drove up to it (the signage on San Carlos is not fabulous so we drove by it twice). But, once inside, there was a nice relaxing atmosphere with a gentle buzz to it, fine danceable jazzy music, and pretty darn good food. Very good scallops, and top-notch steak. Nice antipasto appetizer plate - very shareable. First rate service to go with the good food. Definitely senior friendly - after all Ft. Myers is retirement central, is it not ? But younger couples and families will not feel out of place.

“Glad I read the reviews!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

I had my doubts, from the exterior. Walked in to a 1920's vibe...complete with jazzy decor. Somewhat odd, but very unique. Very attractive bar with high top tables, and large bar seating area. We ordered some continental bar food....frito misto platter and crab cakes. The most beautiful and delectable platters arrived. Truly delicious...NYC quality and presentation. And the dessert...home-made carrot cake. The very best. Yes, this is an amazing restaurant! A "must"!

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

What a great find. This restaurant is located in a small strip mall and you'd never expect to enter into a beautiful jazz club. Feels as if you stepped back in time. The service was excellent, the filet was delicious and the music was wonderful! We will definitely be returning!
