We visited several restaurants along Times Square in Fort Myers and this was by far the best. The waitress, Tammi, was attentive, the burgers were higher quality than the other places, the margaritas were great! The music was awesome as well. Right on the shoreline,...More

Got the seafood platter. Only 4 pieces of shrimp and 1 piece of fish for $20. My wife and I have been in area for a week and this is the skimpiest portion for a seafood platter in the area. Skip this joint for food.

Good food with a great outside seating area providing an upfront view of the Gulf and beach. Located next to pier and other shopping. Recommend eating at PierSide and getting ice cream at Kilwins for dessert on your walk back to your hotel.

We stopped here on a recommendation from a parking lot attendant in Fort Myers Beach. We sat on the outside patio and had a great view of the beach and lots of people. Quite different than our view from restaurants in Sanibel. It was fun...More
