There is nothing fancy about this place, but it’s right on the water, seemed to be dog friendly, and the food is good. This place only accepts cash. We ordered peel and eat shrimp. They were great. Large, very fresh and tasted great.

We stopped in with friends just to have a nice cold glass of white wine and enjoy the fabulous view of the waterfront. I enjoyed the atmosphere of a beach front restaurant with the hanging nets and other fishing paraphernalia. Definitely worth a visit.

Bonita Bill’s is nothing no fancy but is a fun place to go. It sits on the water by the bridge to the beach. Sometimes you can see dophins by the dock. Just remember to bring cash as they do not take credit cards.

Extremely rude. I’ve been coming to Ft. Myers for years and decided to try this restaurant. Could not believe the lack of Florida hospitality. If you are looking for a good experience to add to your vacation, skip this place.

All day dining. Live entertainment. Very casual waterfront atmosphere. Place your order at the counter and find a seat. We hung out one afternoon listening to music with beers and snacks. Tried the conch fritters which were pretty good. Daily specials. Ribs looked good. I...More
