I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the Ft. Myers area looking for a fun, beach inspired dining experience. Food is delicious, loved their flatbreads, wings and chicken tenders! $1 drafts on the happy hour special make it very affordable. Tiffani was a great server and was very friendly and accommodating while we were there. We will be back!

We visited for a late lunch and was able to take advantage of happy hour prices. Dollar drafts and good buffalo shrimp. Nice view and friendly bartender. We will come back!

Went for lunch one day, was so good we went back the next too. Our server was Nya, and she went out of her way to make us feel welcome. We'll return again next winter and hope she is still there.

My husband & I are visiting from the Washington, D.C. area. We went to the beach for a few hours and looked for a nice place with a water view, but didn't want to deal with the crowds RIGHT on the beach. We were originally gonna go to the place across the street, which has NO parking (and didn't answer... More

Went for lunch with my sweetheart on the upper deck. Atmosphere was great, food delicious, and our waitress, Tiffani, was awesome. Coconut shrimp appetizer and coconut mojito for the lady and a Guinness for myself got things started. Salads and a perfect burger with bacon and mushrooms followed. Best of all was the pleasant attitude of the whole staff. Special... More

Umpteenth time here in three years. Always come to the Beached Whale for a few happy hours over our two weeks. Great mussels in a tomatoe/wine/herb sauce served with crusty bread. Flat bread pizzas are great too and we tried the black bean dip once. Was good but prefer the others. Cheap beer too! $5 a pitcher, can't beat that.... More

Good place in the upstairs bar area to watch sports game. The Food and service was great and a special thanks to our Bartender/ Wattress (Tiffan). She was curtious and very knowledgeable of the menu and the Chefs Specials.

We went to The Beached Whale for dinner and drinks on a Saturday night in early December. We sat up on the upper deck which had a neat view of the main drag (Christmas lights etc). It is not right on the beach but across the street. They made a fantastic Mojito and very reasonably priced. Also had some neat... More
