Tried daily special, including clam chowder. Best I have eaten while in SW Florida. Thick and creamy. Piping hot. Good friendly service. Location is in strip mall and a tad hard to find. However, restaurant is moving within same strip mall a few doors down - probably to grab larger space. Blackened grouper was very good, my scallops were tasteless. Value of daily special is excellent. Will try again. Very friendly staff.

Our Group of 12 ate here recently on a Tuesday evening
We all had the early specials, as they have many to choose from
Ask for Audrey she is a professional ,
The food was Excellent
If you need high prices, or fancy surroundings please dine elsewhere.
This is one of those places. You would love to have your own table.
Ft. Myers. Is lucky to have this one and yes
I plan to return as often as I can

Clam Bake is always a treat. We have been going there for going on 5 years and are always treated like family. They are moving a few doors down to a larger space tripling their seating within the next 2 weeks. Ipswich Clams are light and fresh and the bisque is WICKED AWESOME. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone as it is my favorite in Fort Myers. Thank you Laurie, Mark and family.

We went to the Red Sox practice game and found this restaurant listed in the program at the game. We decided to go there after the game, and found ourselves in a strip mall. When we first looked at it we thought maybe the program made it out to be more than it was. Boy were we wrong! We had 1/2 lb steamers, lobster rolls, and my husband had lobster bisque. He loves lobster bisque and rated this a 9 out of 10. I asked him what would've made it a 10, and he said maybe a few more chunks of lobster. He liked it so much he took a cup to go for later. The lobster rolls were very good. Sometimes restaurants put too much dressing in the lobster roll, but this was just right. The owners are actually from RI, but bring real Boston taste to Ft. Myers. If you go, don't judge the restaurant by the fact that it's in a strip mall. You'd be crazy to miss it. If you're looking for romance, it's more where you take the girl who already loves you versus a first date. We were glad we found it.

Had dinner here three times in eight days. They are busy but soon moving down the plaza to a larger space.
Everything we tried was excellent and well prepared.
Also priced very reasonably!
