visited my daughter who was working on a tall ship "Lynx", docked for afew week at nervous nellies.
Spent the day sailing on the ship, and had lunch at restauarant then after the cruise, had dinner, listened to music etc.

Great time, absolutely great staff, from parking attendant to servers, as friendly as you can be, each one of them.
The day was atypical as there was a fundraiser going on, so packed, but again, service was great, quick, and servers were great throughout day, even though I am sure they were tired by end of evening.

Food was great too, hate to tell a secret, but if you're not a big eater, you just might be able to split a plate. We ordered several different items, given lunch and dinner, and a couple appetizers, all good, and not just large portions, but good food (I had the mahi sandwich for lunch, excellent).

I realize I was there just relaxing, never been , but truly an all around great place, worth a stop.
Even if youre not a drinker, they will treat you great (had great sweet tea!).

If it could be this good, and servers as pleasant on a day like that, truly remarkable,
do yourself a favor and check it out, just a short walk from the beach, enjoy, sit inside or out and enjoy the view of the boats, dolphins, etc.

Enjoyed visiting here. Especially nice for families. A fun place. Areas outside could be loud under the covering. Music, upstairs bar, lots of choices in menu. From bar food to fresh seafood. Worked very well with our dietary needs of no salt or pre -seasoning. Nice gift shop, located on water and in the town area.

The menu is HUGE. Everyone can find something to eat. Takes awhile to look at it and choose. I had the lobster roll which is one of their specialties. It was amazing filled with really huge chunks of lobster. They have lots of outside seating and overlook the marina. Really great place all around. Food and atmosphere. Be prepared to wait for a table though.

We had great food. The service was fine. The atmosphere was fantastic and real Fort Myers style... The pulled pork was really good.

We tried this place on the recommendation of friends. The crowd was as expected: elbow-to-elbow & a long wait (45 min.+) so we weren't surprised over that. After being seated outdoors close to the jazz quartet (both were quite nice) & placing our food order we waited...& waited...& WAITED - an hour later we finally got our server to look our way & asked "how much longer?" He would check -- that took another 20 min. He returned saying it would still be awhile but he brought cornbread to tide us over. Immediately after he turned & left another server brought our food - wow. After a few bites we both realized neither meal was what we'd ordered but it was there, we were past hungry, & it was reasonably good, so we said nothing & finished eating. Our bill was for our original order, I've no clue who won on the money side of things, but there are so many other good places to dine that we'll not be back here again.
