My wife stopped in for dinner and was told that w would have a wait for a table ,we thought it must be good or no one would be there. So we sat and waited ,but no one was there . As we sat and waited we notice a few fly's and then noticed many in the back part of the bar . Then we saw a couple cock roaches near the wall and doorway into the back. Not palmetto bug's german cockroaches . We just got up and left . Won't go back as the amount of bugs and waiting for a table and no one was there sort of let me scratch Fancy's off my list .

One of our favorite “go-to” restaurants here in Ft. Myers. Reminiscent of the wonderful food we enjoyed living south of the Mason-Dixon Line for 25 years. Unusual location that you must look for, as the entrance faces away from Daniels Parkway sitting back off the road in a 2 story building. Worth looking to find this place. Excellent food and a quaint bar area. Reasonably priced, with a good choice of dishes, including favorites like Fried Chicken, Chicken and Waffles, Meat Loaf, Decked out sandwiches, dishes with grits, E`touffee, fried green tomatoes, Country Fried Steak, Filet, etc. all with uniquely delicious accompaniments and sauces. Small outside seating area facing the parking lot. Always so much food that we take home some for later!

My wife and I arrived and were immediately asked if we had a reservation. When we said no the hostess simply replied with we’re full. We were asked if we wanted to sit at a table outside. We were seated outside and immediately forgotten about. After nearly 20 min. we got tired of waiting on a server we left. We then decided to call and let the manager know what happened which we never do but felt like it this time. The girl who answered the phone flat out said the manager doesn’t take any phone calls!!?!?! Seriously??? The hostess runs the restaurant? No recourse for bad service? Never again!
