“An Unexpected Pleasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Stopped in to help celebrate a friend's birthday. We had never heard of the place and it was a little tricky to find (Way INSIDE the shopping center just after Mcgregor becomes San Carlos). Elegant place and the prices match. However, the food and the band were outstanding. We stayed over three hours dining and dancing. We shared Bacon wrapped Scallops, Portabella Mushrooms, and that fancy, very thin, Italian ham with something on the side. Rocky Mountain Ice Cream and Creme Brule for desert.

“Magic in Ft. Myers Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

The food and attentive service alone are worth the trip into a secluded commercial strip in Ft. Myers Beach. Mix in a delightful chanteuse with her sax/keyboards/vocals partner and plenty of dancing and it is irresistible. We were the youngest people in the place by 25 years but it did not matter to them or to us: there was fine food to be eaten and boogie-ing to be done.

“Is it food and jazz or”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Jazz and food. Both are top level at the Roadhouse. About halfway between Ft. Myers and Ft. Myers Beach in a shopping center, don't let that fool you, it's what is inside that matters. The great Jazz trumpet player Dan Miller leads the music and the chef produces food, both high quality. What a great way to spend a Tuesday evening. Check their web page for entertainment schedule and menu, but make sure you go.
