“Menu is the best on the beach”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

No matter how many picky eaters you have in your party, everyone will find something they like at Nervous Nellie's. They offer waterfront seating with an excellent view right under the bridge. Evenings are pretty here. It can be a little loud for children on the deck when the band is playing but overall was a great experience. We went here because so far it is the only place we have been able to find our favorite appetizer- fried gator. We were disappointed in the fried gator. It seemed undercooked and didn't have the taste we were used to in Louisiana. However, the meals were delicious. I had the huge grouper sandwich. My husband had the seafood pasta. It was enough food that we all had lunch the next day. The children's menu has several items and my daughter was pleased with her chicken fingers. The service was friendly and it was an overall good experience.

“Great value, great price!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I ate here for dinner tonight, Sept. 4th, & what a wonderful evening! We had Robin as our server who was amazing! She really knew the menu, which is quite extensive, & let us know where everything came from like she caught it herself. We ordered and literally within 10 minutes, our food was brought to the table. We were on our honeymoon, and we were treated to an absolutely fantastic chocolate mousse dessert on the house. After trying a much more expensive restaurant on our first night, we have been much more pleased with the other offerings we have found in the Fort Myers Beach area. Thank you for such a great experience!

“Great place on the water to eat, drink, and enjoy the atmosphere.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Was just there one night and found this place. It was raining but they had a covered patio right on the water. It was really nice and food and drinks were good. They have a huge menu. Priced well we thought! Would go back!
