“Something to see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

This has a very nice dock view of the gulf. The food is good. The only thing is that the menu is way to large, very confusing when your trying to pick something to eat. I've been there several times and it is a casual dress code and food has been good. They say everything is made fresh daily even their bread and buns. There is outside seating as well as indoors. You just have to go there to see their huge menu and of course eat their great food.

“Great place to eat on Ft Myers Beach!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

We enjoyed Nervous Nellies so much we at there 2 nights in a row. Great service but the wait for the food to come out was a bit long however they were swamped while we were there so a longer wait is understandable. A wonderful place to eat dinner on the deck, or inside when it's too hot outside. I HIGHLY recommend the chicken and steak quesadilla!!!!

“Great pet friendly restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

We took our cockapoo out shopping and lunch with us. They were very friendly. You do have to sit outside with a pet and it was hot but they put us at a very shaded table and there was an occasional breeze coming off the bay. You sit right at the waters edge. The food was excellent. The only complaint would be that they did not offer water to my dog, but I always have a bag with food, treats, water, a dish, a towel for her to lay on and poop bags so she was good. Service was excellent and food was excellent. Will go there again

“Overall a good time.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

The menu was overwhelming with 229 options. Thankfully, our server was very helpful with recommendations. The food was really good! The "live" music was a joke as the "musician" sang along to tracks. I would definitely go back for the food and service.
