While on vacation we stopped at Nervous Nellie's for dinner and a few drinks. After reviewing the menu, we were pleasantly surprised about the options, and the drink choices. Not only were our drinks fantastic, including the 64 oz. nervous nellie, our meals were wonderful. I highly recommend the Shore dinner to Remember. Our server was excellent and so was the view looking into the harbor. Nervouse Nellie's made for one of our fondest memories of our vacation.

Maybe it was a bad day but we had a really bad experience. Had to wait more than 30 minutes for a table. After another 15-20 minutes we were acknowledged by the waitstaff only to find out that the wait for food orders was going to be 90 minutes. This came as a big surprise because the hostess never mentioned that the kitchen was moving in super slomo. We finished our drinks and abandoned ship and went to Parrot Key and had a great dinner.

Took a group of friends to Nervous Nellie's. If you're not from Fort Myers it's good to know that they have call ahead seating which can help get a table on the back terrace. Our group of 6 had various items from the menu. All tasted good and were reasonably priced. The best though was seating outside on the terrace with live music and a waterfront view. Bonus was that on the second floor from 6-8pm they had a man with a live baby alligator that you can hold and take pictures with. Definitely a place to bring more friends to!!!

We took a walk to try and find a good restaurant and at the marina area we ran into Nervous Nellie's. What a great find. Good prices, great tasting food, and large portions. The menu has a large selection of different types of food at different prices. I ordered the Veggie Quesadilla - my husband ordered Haddock Sandwich, and my daughter ordered Drunken Chicken Burrito. All three meals were delicious! We will definitely return to try other things on the menu.

Uglies bar was given a second chance by my wife and myself. The first time we went there 2 years ago, we were ignored by the bartenders and wait staff. I've been to Nervous Nellies, the downstairs, since and have nothing but good things to say about them. So my wife and I last night thought we'd give Uglies a chance.

Uglies advertises all day happy hour, but the prices for simple beer and drinks do not reflect this. $3.50 domestic bottles of beer is not happy hour prices comparable to the area. Also their Well drinks were priced well above happy hour prices. They also have no happy hour specials on appetizers unlike the other places in the area also.

My wife and I sat down and ordered two beers after reviewing the "happy hour" drink specials. Our waitress was fast, but not terribly friendly. We then reviewed the menu trying to find an appetizer. We asked the waitress if anything was on special and were told no. She came by several times asking us if we were going to order more. We decided no, solely because of the pricing and new we could get deals at other nearby places. This proceeded to upset our waitress who very rudely asked my wife if we only came there for the free parking for two beers. We were both shocked and not even sure how to answer. We vacation in Fort Myers beach for many years, and yesterday, Thursday, there was plenty of parking including street parking and free parking at SOB. We then left. Needless to say, we will never go back to Uglies. Nervous Nellies yes, Uglies no. Uglies will not get a chance for a third strike from us.
