This is our second time here. Both times we've sat up on the roof deck. The first time was for lunch and it was great.
This trip we went for dinner and again sat up on the roof deck. It was pretty busy and we had to wait at the bar for a table. No big deal. Bartender was fast and friendly.
When we were seated the server was over right away. All in all the food we had that night was decent. This isn't a fine dining establishment so if you go expecting that you may be disappointed.
We enjoy stopping in here when we visit and have never been unhappy with the food or the service.

The food was fair to terrible. How can someone ruin a hot dog. Some of the kids we were with enjoyed the food. We did not enjoy the tight fit of the crowd bumping the people sitting down trying to eat. We will never go back, but the twenty something crowd loves drinking there, especially on the upper deck.
Not a great place for a family with kids or older folk who might object to being jostled around. My ears hurt by the time we left.

This is one of my favorite places to eat on the Beach. My wife and I split and order of their delicious Buffalo Shrimp. Man they're good. For the main course I had the Fish and Chips. The fish was perfectly fried as well as the fries. My wife had the Margaitta flat bread. That sad to say was not very good. The crust was tough and tasted like it was frozen. She couldn't finish it. The server and service was great. He took the Flat bread off the bill. We sat upstairs and enjoyed a nice breeze an watched the sun set. Except for the flat bread we never had a problem. The food is very good. You'll see.

Enjoying food, family and friends on the upper (outside) deck is a great experience. It's a MUST on any trip to Fort Myers Beach. Atmosphere is great, casual and the food is fabulous. Everything from pulled port to fried grouper.

Considering it was not crowded, it was still too small. The seating was uncomfortable & the floor was just unmentionable. Food was obviously frozen to to fried. Drinks were served fast.
