Description: 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.

This is my kinda place. Live music, awesome service, super cool locals, and the place has been there since 1939, does it look like it... a little but that's why I love it! Food was good, I had the wings and homemade chips and I wasn't disappointed
Beers were cold, music and patrons loud, views off the decks were pure Florida beauty. As a proud Florida girl born and raised, places like this seem to evaporate with condos, and the wealthy elite taking over, but this town and place was a welcome respite... thanks for the good times!!!

The fish they use is Swai which has no consistency at all. The breading is fine but the fish is so mushy that you could drink it through a straw. It may be all you can eat for $9.99 but after just a few bites that really is ALL YOU CAN EAT! You can get fried cod at Culvers for half the price which is twice as good.

After being in the area for 6 years we headed out to Matlacha. The bar did live up to all we had heard on the years. You enjoyed live music and the view.

Bert's is not fancy, that's for sure. The place looks like it could use some fixing up. But I guess they like the rustic look.
It's really the food that makes Bert's so popular.
Get there early for lunch if you want to find a parking spot and a table, especially in season. The fish is the star of the menu. It's good and it's fresh. The service is fast and the prices are fair.
If you want a good fish lunch, go to Bert's.

Great time at Bert's. Good fish sandwiches and key lime pie. The steel drum player was really good and funny. Our waitress was great. My Aunt has food allergies and she was very kind and attentive.
