We were looking for waterfront dining and found Doc Ford's. "Finding" is definitely the word--the location is a little hard to find. The Yucatan shrimp tacos wer excellent, the balsamic dressing on the salad was also (and when's the last time a salad dressing was memorable?) Try the key lime pie, too.

This place has a very nice view of the back bay of Fort Myers Beach. You can come by car or boat. Live music on weekends. Only thing we don't like is that it is off the beach and you have to go over the bridge to the main land to go there. Its also tricky to get to as you have to go under and around the bridge to get there. It's easy to get to by boat which is why it's lower level is packed on weekends.

We were here before and we'll do it again! Made yet another trip down to the beach for a dinner at Doc Ford's on Thurs. Nov 16th. Our family sent us a gift card and we never hesitate to use them. Our server, Tiffany, was personable, knowledgeable about the specials, very customer focused, and made the dining experience well worth the trip. The food is always, always, good. We started with an appetizer of calamari, done just right, not overcooked and rubbery as so many places make it. I had the shrimp, and hubby went for the fish tacos. Sounds simple, but the blending of the ingredients makes it all worth while folks. And just as an added bonus, two dolphins put on a show in the harbor for the entire restaurant for well over 30mins, They continued to play, jump, and set the wonderful mood for the evening. Nature at its best, what more can I say, besides, thank you Doc Ford's for your entire staff's service and "I'll be back!."

If you like seafood this place is great. They have all kinds of taxidermied fish on the walls and a huge aquarium inside. Being from Arkansas and a Razorback fan, imagine my surprise when I saw a drink called the Raging Razorback on the drink menu. Yummy, had to have two.
