“We LOVE Doc Fords!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Everyone has their favorites and this is ours. We like both locations but Fort Myers is our favorite. Great location right on the water looking out at the boats. Inside and outside seating. Service is always great and the staff even when busy are very friendly. They have a nice bar that get really busy lots of fun. At night there is music outside. We love the food here. Yucatan shrimp is my sons favorite Stone Crabs and Mahi Mahi are awesome. Good drinks and good food. We have been going here for years and I always review it. This is also a great place for a quiet lunch on the water.

“What a view!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

A well-kept secret near the fishing docks. The view of the bay is breathtaking and the food is almost as good as the Doc Ford's on Sanibel. Not quite as lively, though. Keep up the good work!

“Great live music and outside patio”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Wonderful food (much bigger & more outside seating than Sanibel) great service and a fun band was playing. Heated fans if it got too cold out and we didn't have to wait at all! I had the conch chowder, it was spicy and delicious. Definitely a place to stop by.

“excellent experience”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We went there twice-second time we did not have a chance to eat cause we could not wait for a table, so we went somewhere else.
We liked almost everything about it place-view from our table (we choose a table inside because we have better control on our little devil-our son), food and service . This last thing was really unusual experience for us , because till this dinner , everywhere else in Fort Myer we had really terrible experience with the service at restaurants we were eating. Our girl was really nice and helpful, suggested few things and we were glad that we listened:) We had mussels for appetizer, chef's special for a main course was very tasty fish beautifully served . The only things I was not completely happy with were drinks from the bar . Well...it is hard to be perfect, but this place is almost there:)
