“Mixed”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

We went here several times for drinks and sometimes for food as well.
The first few times we went everything was good. We went inside were served quickly and our servers were friendly and helpful. The drinks were good and so was the food.

The last time we call here we use a table outside. We waited ages to be served and our server wasn't very friendly. We waited awhile for our drinks and because of this didn't bother with food.
We had to ask twice for the cheque. Because of the service we didn't leave a tip!(on this visit, we always left tips previously)

“The Bristol Resort on Ft Myers Beach!”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Living on this island for over thirty years, it is the number one hotel and restaurant on Ft Myers Beach. I have recommended this resort to over fifteen friends who have stayed there and every time I asked how their stay was all I ever here is WOW! Nine have rebooked numerous times and always the same experience. Cabanas is the nicest restaurant with the friendliest staff I have encountered. Janet & Jessica at the pool restaurant and bar are a 10 when it comes to hospitality. I take my wife and grandson there every Sat and Sun. First for lunch for my 3 year old grandson and then back later for lunch with my wife. Both these ladies epitomize customer service and Kindness towards everyone they encounter. Prices for a Four Star resort and restaurant are unbeatable. Thank You for bringing this jewel and people to what we call home!

“Great Atmosphere Food Average”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

Located on the beach in The Diamond Head Beach Resort, the atmosphere is fantastic. Drinks were good, I had a Piña Colada and my friend did the Bloody Mary Bar both were enjoyable. I don't care for being served in plastic cups but I'm assuming it's done for safety reasons at the pool, which was connected by a gate. I ordered the turkey wrap with a side of fruit. They gave me fries instead. I asked for the ranch dressing to be on the side and was so glad I did because the wrap was very salty ( I can generally handle a good bit of salt) not sure if it was the bacon or the turkey or if they put salt on it but it was too much and I could only eat half. My friend got the Grouper sandwich, one of her favorite fishes. She said she was not impressed by it at all but said the fries were good. The waiter was extremely friendly and pleasant. I would probably go back for a drink sometime but not to eat. Our bill was over $40 and we only had one drink each with our meal.

Located right on the beach. Great lunch in a breezy tropical atmosphere. Our bartender, Dylan was very friendly, and made a perfect from scratch margarita. We will be back.

“Why go anywhere else?”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

When on vacation one labors to figure out where to go for dinner. No problem--Cabana has great food and wide variety you would find in countless restaurants on Fort Meyers Beach. Great prices, service, and view of the beach and pool.
