Girls night out again with three of my girlfriends and we wanted to eat outside (we're from Ohio and it's cold). Unfortunately it was a little too cool to eat outside but the hostess sat us right by the window overlooking the water so we still had great views. Three of us had the stuffed shrimp and it was very good. Loved watching boats pull up for dinner. Would return again next year if we vacation in Fort Myers.

The food and atmosphere were excellent. The stuffed shrimp was delicious, very much worth the wait. So glad we decided to eat there!

Average quality of food but fairly expensive. Red wines by the glass were awful. My wife didn't eat hardly any of her shrimp scampi as the shrimp were dry and rubbery. The salmon was not too bad.

Easy place to dock your boat. Arrived for late lunch with no reservation. Staff was very friendly, got a very good table right on the water. Food was very good, fair value. Best key lime pie ever! Will go back again!

Rain could have ruined our day but we headed out for drinks (walking in the rain) and ended up having appetizers and pizza here. We had 2 med pizzas between 4 of us and both were great! Our waiter was a super sweet kid that let wear his sweatshirt and he provided great service!
