We visited 3 times in 5 days! Best shrimp we'd eaten in a very long time. Lovely view across the water, very helpful waiting staff and a huge choice of dishes - but it was the Yucatan Shrimp we loved!

We've been going to this place for years, even before we moved to Florida. Always a fun place to eat. Service is good; food is good; drinks are good. We always sit outside on the water.

We had a great night at Doc Fords. Service and food were excellent and the view wasn't bad either. We opted for the comfort of indoor dinning and were very pleased.

Great stop for Lunch or Dinner! Whether you arrive by car or by boat this is a Fort Myers Beach Must do! Friendly staff, good food and you are sitting right on the water! Love the outdoor bar to watch the Pelicans!

Doc Ford's has consistently good food and service. The waterfront dining can't be beat. The boardwalk is our favorite spot, but there isn't a bad seat in the house!

Call them. Not "fine dining" but great food, excellent service and a quintessential FL atmosphere. If they are open, I reommend the fish tacos with papaya pico de gallo. Happy Easter!
