“Solid bar food. Nice view.”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We were there when it wasn't so busy, so were able to sit at a booth on the deck that had a decent view of the Gulf. I advise going when it isn't that busy so you can enjoy the view of the Gulf as well. We had wings which were way too greasy but at five bucks for a dozen I was not about to complain(the five bucks is during happy hour). We had a really nice shrimp flatbread which I would get again without hesitation. The pulled pork sandwich was also pretty good. During happy hours they have some great drink specials like 99 cent drafts. Not a bad spot for the beach. I would recommend.

“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

This was the first place we ate at when we arrived in Ft. Myers. The food was good and they gave you a large plate of food. We sat upstairs on the outside deck and enjoyed the view. The table also had an umbrella to provide shade from the sun. Enjoyed it very much!

“Great Place to Eat”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We found the Beached Whale to be a great place to eat.
Sat up on the upper floor overlooking the street we could watch the world go by as well as eat some really great food.
The service was good and whatever food we ordered on our visits it was first class.
I would certainly recommend a visit (or two) if you are in the locality.

“Read the reviews, not really up to the ratings”
Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Read the reviews, sounded good so we tried it. Burger, grouper sandwich, hot wings, 2 sodas and $42 later we were charged for soda refills. I do not remember being charged for a refill of my soda in a long time. The burger was good as we're the wings, but had to put lemon on the Grouper to get past the heavy fish taste.

“The crawl......”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

we decided to try a few tripadvisor recommendations. On the list was the Beached Whale, also recommended by our server Jason (rodeo) at SOB. We sat downstairs, ordered our drinks and asked about happy hour. NO disappoints here......Tasty mussels and excellent wings. Atmosphere wasn't what i imagined. food was amazing and everyone was pleasant and accomodating......... it was a great start to our afternoon.
