“Great food, great prices, great location”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

What's not to like about Nervous Nellie's? They have a huge menu, their prices are very reasonable, and the water view is fantastic. We visit often when we're in the area. Lots of selections so every one can find something they enjoy. We like dining outside by the water, listening to the live band. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to families or anyone looking for a great meal at a great price.

“Why's isn't this restaurant the "BEST OF" in the News-Press”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

This restaurant is more than just outstanding. Gives very much insight as to how another restaurant is best Waterfront restaurant (the voting?????). First off, the menu is hugh (sorry Billy), the prices are reasonable and the food is outstanding. The last two times, there were more than 8 in our party and NO ONE was disappointed. The place does a heck of a business. No wonder!!!!! I check family, but it is family & friends pretty much every time we go there.

“Great Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

While on vacation in Ft. Myers Beach we discovered this restaurant. The staff was great, food excellent and we couldn't have found a more relaxing atmosphere to end our day.

“Delicious meal, incredible view”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

After reading reviews on TripAdvisor I wasn't sure what to expect - unlike others we had excellent service, great meals and based on our experience I would highly recommend eating here if you're visiting Fort Myers Beach.

I ordered the mahi mahi with wasabi and it was delightful. Thick, tender and tasty - it' was a welcome relief after the thin, rubbery and far too often fried fish we had at other restaurants while visiting. The swordfish was also excellent, although the salmon was just okay.

The location tucked on the bay rather than the gulf also offered shelter from a cool off-shore breeze the night we were there and the great food, prompt service, live music and beautiful view from the patio made this a dinner to remember.
