Bill's has a great atmosphere with an old Florida feel, in fact you'll find many locals here some even living on boats that stay in the adjacent marina. There is such an authentic feel that you'd almost expect to see a peg legged pirate with a parrot on his shoulder sitting around drinking here. Our food was fresh plus served... More

We ran into this place by accident and returned four times during our time in Fort Myers. On Mondays they have a jam session. There were many people there, good music and dancing. Tuesday nights is Karaoke , which great participation. The drinks are priced very reasonable. We only had snacks but the food looks good, but not fancy. They... More

We visited Bonita Bills on a Monday night. There was live music that we thoroughly enjoyed while admiring the boats in the marina. Bring cash!! Bartender was very friendly. We didn't have dinner here, as we were looking for a bigger menu.

Based on high ratings, we were expecting a great burger! Hamburger was gray, tasted like a frozen burger. Friend had hot dog which was good but onion rings were tasteless. Maybe the ratings were for the bar?? Best positive was sitting on the dock watching the dolphins.

Music or karaoke after noon until close most days. Just a great place to sit and enjoy music and talk with friends. Looks at the bay while eating. Food OK. The shrimp are fresh and probably the best thing. Pork tenderloin is huge. Grilled hot dog.

Order, pickup and buy your food at the bar. Cash only. Plastic chairs or stools. $1.75 for limited selection of tap beer, but bottles also available. Fun if you are with a fun crowd.

Drove there in a friends boat... jump off boat onto dock... very casual order at the bar. Good comes out quickly , beer by the pitcher is very reasonable. Lots of breaded and fried foods.... tasting as one would expect it to.... everyone in our party was happy with their choices. My hot dog with sauerkraut was good. While you... More

Different kind of restaurant, you get in line soon as you walk in and order your drinks and food. No table service except for your initial foods. Monday is open jam nite, what a hoot. C U next year.
