Great place to watch sports on "the Telly" and have some pub food and beer. Great location, the waitstaff was nice, prices are fair. We had a turkey Diana sandwich, pulled pork sliders and a Reuben. The turkey was fresh, beer was cold, and everyone was happy with their food & drink. We will return during Art Walk or Music... More

Stopped in for an evening meal while travelling through, and found this ale house. Delicious black & Blue salad topped with grilled fillet. Typical ales from around the world, served in "proper" glasses for the style of beer or ale. Actually served a bit too cold for some of the styles, but that is probably a good thing as so... More

My wife and I went here while attending the car show Nov 26. We got seated quickly after searching out a hostess. There were lots of empty tables. (should have told me something) My wife ordered a chicken salad on a croissant, it was mediocre. I ordered a veggie quiche. Neither meal was hot when delivered. My quiche was a... More

We came to United Cafe for brunch. it was busy, but we ordered a simple bagel and quiche. It does NOT take an hour to prepare this meal. We were told over and over by our server that it would just be a 'few more minutes' but we left after a full hour went by. Our food never arrived. I... More

Looking for an authentic English breakfast? This is the only place in Ft. Myers you will find it! How about a draft Boddington's Ale? This is the place mate. Great vibes, friendly staff. Have enjoyed breakfast, dinner and evening snacks here; never disappointed!

Where to start? The restaurant itself is quaint and has a cool vibe and the Bloody Mary was quite good! There were only three other tables filled inside but many patrons at the outside tables. The waitresses ran back and forth and I could tell they were understaffed but we were in no rush. Our waitress (Aubrey?) was awesome, she... More

First, the food was good. Second, the service was horrible. We had to wait to be acknowledged when we entered the cafe because most of the staff were gathered around the hostess and her cellphone. She finally looked up and said to seat ourselves even though the sign said wait to be seated. Finally she came to our table and... More

Recommended by the Indigo hotel, we had breakfast from the British range, called something like the Royal Eggs Breakfast. It involved scrambled egg and smoked salmon. However, the scrambled egg turned out to be omelette! When I asked for scrambled egg, the omelette was brought back, after being cut up and the server said she did not think the two... More

Big fan of the pot roast, mash potatoes and gravy. Black and blue salad, new item on menu, is very good.
