My wife and I stopped in again, on a previous visit I had the grouper sandwich. Had one again. Awesome sandwich. Will look forward to having another. The parking can be touch and go but worth the effort.

We had visitors and wanted to show them around. We stopped at Bert's for a cold beer and great scenery. There were dolphins swimming within easy eye sight. The food being served around us looked good. The live music hadn't begun yet. Of note, they only serve beer and wine. No liquor. After paying walk across the street to Bert's... More

. Good food. Sometimes good musicians with your meal. Inside is air conditioned. Outside there is a deck on the water.

Enjoyed the music outdoor on the deck last Friday. The catch of the day was red snapper. It was absolutely the best. We love this little bar on the water, but the waitress was horrible. We asked about another fish listed on the menu board, but she said she doesn't eat fish so she didn't know what it was. We... More

Visited for lunch today with another couple. We sat out on the deck and enjoyed great food; live music was a bonus we hadn't expected on a Tuesday at lunchtime! We had a little of everything - chicken fingers, burger, chowder, and fish of the day which was cobia. Prices reasonable and large portions. Everything was excellent! Will go back... More

I love this bar. They serve the best fish anywhere. Friday's, all the fish you can eat, $9.95. And it is delicious. The music is great also. Love the steel drums guy and also love Mike Imbasciani. Atmosphere here is laid back and very cool views on the water. Waiters are so friendly. My fav!!!

I’m a local, so I’m a bit biased. That said, Bert’s is THE place to go for a great burger or fish and chips. Always great music and the view is the best!

IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A GREAT TIME IN CAPE CORAL, THIS IS THE PLACE. We had the best time at this little bar and restaurant. World class guitar player, Mike Imbasciani, and the blues Rokerz, played some great blues for 3 hours. No cover. The food was good, fresh fish cooked perfect, the waitress had a little attitude and... More

We drove miles off our main road to visit Bert's again ... for the third time! It was a beautiful, but hot day and we snacked outside and had cold beverages while watching the boats and birds float by. It was hot...and minimal shade so we cut our trip short....I'd say, when in the area, this is a good stop,... More

75 year oldtime Waterfront Restaurant and Bar with a Million Dollar view. Local seafood. Both local and national entertainment with no cover charge. Recommended by Southern Living, Coastal Living, Florida Travel & Life, Boston Globe, and American Airlines to mention a few. Quality food at reasonable prices. Great place to relax, enjoy the view and perhaps to see dolphins and/or manatees.
