“Over priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

If it was not for a group of friends that wanted to go I would have avoided this place. Anyone can buy a box of frozen steaks at GFS and slap them on the grill. Granted we paid for atmosphere and the service was sometimes unattentive I would avoid this place.

“This place used to be better. Now it's just average. :(”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

I like the outdoor seating and it's a very good happy hour to have a good beer or glass of wine. The food is kind of overpriced and really just okay.

“Image is everything..right? Or wrong.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Been Coming here for quite a while. Have had good service most of the time. And food taste has been great also. So here's the skinny. If you want atmosphere and cocktails, this is the place. If you want to eat, don't bring an appetite. You will get decent food for five star prices and zero portions. Honestly. They used to feed you here. Now your meals have very little food and a very big price tag. Seems like they tried to jump to the fancy five star ranks where presentation is all and portions null. Bottom line, Come for the expensive drinks and sides. This is Ft Myers, not Hollywood. I am finding a new place for the time being.

“Great atmosphere, awful food!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

We found this great little place in Fort Myers; however the food was awful. it has a great location; nevertheless that doesn't say anything for the food. We ordered several appetizers , and had to send two back because he couldn't see them. we didn't even stay for an entree.

“Great food in a wasteland of chains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

We loved the food, especially in this neighborhood that has nothing else but chains practically. It's more expensive, so check out their website for prices, etc. to see if it'll fit your budget, but know that the quality is there if you go.
