“Hooters knock off with the same poor service”
Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

This place is exactly like Hooters; poor food, poor service, and the same wood tables. The only difference here is that they wear black shorts instead of the Hooter's orange. The menu is almost identical as well and the food tastes just as bad. I don't know how they get away with this unless they were before Hooter's. If you just want a beer it's a good place to come with plenty of tv's, but if you expect any service look elsewhere.

“Good choice of games playing”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Being this is Florida it's odd it's hard to find a place that plays the Bucs game. First time we went in the restaurant we asked the greeter if they had the Bucs game, since so many places dont, and she said B-u-chs??? like she never heard of it before. Oh well. After the games clear out so do the people, really don't know how this place stays in business people don't eat much after they sit there for several hours because the choices are so limited and the food is so poor. The wings themselves actually don't taste that bad but they come on the plate absolutely floating in grease. Everything else I have had there is bad. I have been several times just for the game atmosphere and have tried several items and there have been a few things I can't even finish. I don't see how anyone would think this food is good not even the owners, really don't get it.

“Winghouse was great!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Resonabley priced wings in a Hooter's atmosphere. Food was excellent with a great choice of sauces for your wings. Draught beer available and very cold. On my list of favorites.

“Yuck-Fort Myers location”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Beer was cold that was the only plus. Wings had no taste and that was for medium and were veiny and soggy and that was when asked for crispy. The fried mushrooms were soggy and had no taste what so ever.
I am now feeling the pain with a severe upset stomach and miserable feeling.
Just another wanna be Hooters. Sad

“More cheeky Hooter”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Decor and wait staff near identical to Hooters. Waitresses garb is same except silk shorts are black and show a bit more cheeks. I got 10 wings and 2 flavors ;med buffalo and bbq. Both were good. Many TVs to watch sports. Definitely a place for guys to gawk. Easy access to i-75
