“Too Bad Locals Dont Feel The Same .....”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Food less than average, cold, fries oversalted, Kids didn't like their meals. Had a Entertainment book coupon that had some stipulations. At the time of our seating we presented it to the server who replied " I'm sure this will be fine" and we began our orders. Not only did the food take longer than expected, it was not nearly what we expected and the caliber of what is available on Ft. Myers Beach. Near the end of the meal the server came and said that the manager would not honor the Entertainment Book coupon and apologized. It had a time (after 4pm) on it and it was 3 pm. We asked for a manager and wanted to know why they didn't advise us of this and why the meal was served before the coupon issue was announced. The manager said that there wasn't anything she would be able to do about it and blamed it on the owners. I explained how subpar the food was and why I felt it needed to be better quality... and she simply replied " I'm sorry about that " I GUARANTEED her that we would not be back....ever. There is simply too much to choose from at fort myers beach. The pierside beach location is prime....and that's about where it ends.

“Great atmosphere!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

I go to the Pierside every time I'm in FMB. Love it there! Great service, food, and view. The Beach Bread is my favorite and Deborah is a great bartender! We went last Friday and Deborah really took care of us. Will definitely be back next time we are in FMB!

“Great Beach Bread”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Great place to sit outside right on the beach. We have not been overly impressed with the food in general but they have a great beach bread. Great place to sit in the evening, listen to music have beach bread and a cold drink or two.

“What a view!”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

The food was just average, but generously portioned. The view while you're eating is stunning, though! It's worth it to stop by here and have a meal just so you can enjoy the live music and wave watching while dining.

“Will not be back”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

Appetizer was greasy, dinner was dry, chips with the kids meal were burned, nothing had any flavor except for the frying oil. Had a frozen drink, it was mostly melted by the time it came to the table. Service was ok, until I sat at the table for 20 minutes after we were done eating waiting for the check. A different waitress brought it to us. The best part about this restaurant was the view.
