“Lovely casual atmosphere”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Very well prepared grouper. Cesar salad with lightly blackened grouper is delicious. My husband had the Key West salad, he typically doesn't order salad. The scallops and shrimp on it made his day. Their rumrunner frozen drink was very good too. Our server was very attentive and the atmosphere if very unique and fun.

“Great Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the Beach Club across the street and wanted to try it out during our stay. I am glad we did.

We took our freshly caught Snapper there to be prepared. For $11.99 a pound they cooked it to order with 2 sides a person.

It is located behind the Santini Plaza.

“Good food spoiled by sloppy and careless waiter”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Met here for dinner the other evening. Our brash waiter took our drink orders and disappeared. When he returned with our drinks he had his fingers on the glass/stein rims which grossed most of us. He then took our orders which turned out he got wrong with missing parts etc. . The food tastes great like my shrimp basket with sweet potato fries, a $2 substitution. My wife loved her fish tacos and this sentiment was shared by all others. If only the waiter had been more careful with his hands and the checks. My check included a $4 extra charge for sweet potato fries. "OOOPSS" he said and repeated this for our friends as well. He brought the wrong checks all around and repeated this with the change/credit card prints.
So while the venue is a greasy spoon with great seafood, the service can be wildly erratic. I have had great waitstaff in the past but this time he was more concerned about his "witticisms" than focusing on his table.
Bottom Line: check your bill carefully. A technical foul can appear on it w/o warning. :)

“Enjoyed our 1st visit”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

It was our first time in Ft. Myers and at The Fish House. Our server Jeff was incredibly friendly and we loved the food. I had the mahi mahi sandwich. It was crowded but we didn't have a wait. Would go again when in Ft. Myers.

“Our standby”
Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

The seafood is always fresh and the menu is big. The staff is the best around and the drinks are strong. We go to the one in bonita beach and this review is about that one. Always a good time.crowded but we wait for a seat at the bar and are served there. Cool logo tea shirts and sweatshirts!
