“A very pleasant surprise”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

We were a little put off by the location and decor but the food was fabulous and the prices are vey reasonable. Our waitress told us that they are only open for lunch 11-2 and for dinner from 5-8 so plan carefully. It is a very nice find... try it, you'll like it!

“Won't Be Back”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

I submitted this review earlier and it was somehow deleted.

When we arrived for lunch (around 11:30) we were seated and promptly told by the server to hurry with our orders because she had several large tables and "would be busy". Rushing customers and telling them they are less important than her other guests is not a great way to start.

We did order quickly and the food did not take long. Two of us ordered burgers and they were overdone. After being told how the burger meat is fresh ground and we should order them medium, they came out medium well and seemed like they had been fried in a grease vat. The burgers were so greasy, neither of us finished. The other two in the party had salads and they were overloaded with corn with barely any lettuce. The chicken and fish in the salads were good.

It took so long to get the check, someone ended up taking the bill and the paying at the front.

Kenwood Lane Grille is disappointed that you did not enjoy your lunch. We receive many compliments about Nada. By her giving you the choice of getting your order into the kitchen before 10 other people one would think that you were actually her first priority.
Since our Chef does not serve corn in any of his dishes we will assume by your description that you are referring to his Mediterranean salad, a contemporary twist on a pasta salad. It has Israeli couscous; a Middle Eastern pasta; as its main ingredient as listed on the menu. It is one of our most popular salads.
Our hamburgers are freshly ground in house and flame grilled. Most manufactured ground beef contain Red Food Dye #40 or Pink Slime for color. Ours do not. We unfortunately do not know how to answer your comment about your overcooked greasy burger since most overcooked meat tends to be dry and we assume deep frying a fresh ground burger would make it fall apart.
We appreciate all of our Tripadvisor comments, learn from the negative ones and will take yours into proper consideration.

“Satisfying”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We ate here on a Tuesday evening before a musical at the Barbara B. Mann; we ate around 5:30 and found the restaurant not very busy, given we were in the middle of snowbird season. The meal and service were fine, but nothing would strongly encourage us to return. We don't live in Ft. Myers, but even when we go the BBM again, we'd likely seek variety and try another restaurant. Nothing wrong, just nothing special. The portion sizes were generous and the preparation fine. We ate in the garden, which was pleasant but not scenic.
