Our food was great but the only way to avoid an hour long wait was to eat at the bar. Our server, Cathy, was very good, but we waited almost 45 minutes for our food. As we sat at the bar waiting for our food, we observed four or five empty tables ready for patrons but empty for 15 or 20 minutes at a time. No wonder the wait time was so high, they weren't utilizing the empty tables they had. I guess that worked in our favor because had the restaurant utilized tables as they became free, our food may have taken longer. I guess the management doesn't care that there was a business opportunity lost by the lack of quick turnaround on tables. Liked the food and Cathy was great!

There were 4 of us in our party to celebrate our dear friend's birthday and visit .... we were allowed to "take our time" and enjoy our conversation and meals in the comfortable surroundings.. After sharing the calamari appetizer, we each had a fish entrée. All were prepared perfectly and were delicious. Our server, Stephen, was attentive, yet not intrusive as he made sure we had an enjoyable experience as we dined, drank our wine and listened to the live music. To end the evening, our friend was presented with a complimentary piece of chocolate cake, complete with a candle... big enough to be shared between us. This is not our first evening at the Morgan House and it definitely will not be our last. We love introducing our friends to places we enjoy and this place is on the top of the list.

Our group had 76 people for lunch today at the Morgan House. We had the inside and outside of the second floor on a perfect Florida day. Lunches were delicious and service was smoothly efficient. The key lime pie was a big hit with everyone.

Pleasant restaurant in the newly renovated downtown Fort Myers area. Service was poor and the food was about the same. Grouper (very small portion) sandwich was served with so much cooking oil, I had to pat it down. The flavor was just okay. Prices were reasonable, but I will not return.

Great meals at the Morgan House. The conch chowder was pretty spicy and the Iceberg Wedge was a meal in itself. The Downtown Tortellini was surprising with plenty of Lobster and the Turf ate my Surf had a nice presentation and flavor.
