“It doesn't get any better”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Sit outdoors in a casual setting on the dock overlooking the ocean, eat good food, enjoy friendly service, and listen to live music...oh yeah, and have a drink or two. What's not to love? This is one of my favorite spots on Fort Myers Beach. .Just sit in the sun until your heart's content and pop up to the restaurant for refreshments and take in the view. Love it!

“Good spot on Beach.”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Service was good. Waitress very nice. Prices very high for me. But is to be expected for being on the beach. Food did taste good though.

“Bad Beach Food”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

I really wanted to like this place.. But other than the location and drinks.. its very hard to like.
I ordered a cod sandwich, it was " broiled" but undercooked, the roll was stale.. My husbands hamburger was cold. Need I say more? Save your money- just have drinks.

“Bad attitudes and poor customer service....didnt even get to the food!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

The family is visiting from MN. We spent the day on beach and wanted to grab a couple of drinks (each) with some appetizers while sitting next to the beach. It was about 3 in the afternoon and we were RUDLY told the were only seating for dinner. They directed us to the bar for our drinks and appetizers. Needless to say, the bar had no room and too many people just drinking. We each had one drink while I watched the tables we would have liked to sit at and have a couple of drinks and appetizers. Not only did the tables never fill up, there were more empty tables when we left then when we got there. Because of their rude customer service, they missed out on a table with numerous drinks and appetizers. We had one drink and left. Great view, IF YOU CAN GET A SEAT.
