There are not many "ocean front" places to eat. Pierside was typical bar food, nothing special. Good service.

This restaurant has tasty food, enjoyed everything we ordered. You can eat inside or outside, when you're outside, you're overlooking the beach - if it's too much sun, they have umbrella tables. They sell fun t-shirts

I've eaten at this restaurant multiple times per year for more than 7 years, its always been my favorite place on Ft. Myers Beach. This time the food quality was below average...not just the preparation but the quality of the ingredients. Seems they are cutting costs on the food side. Still fantastic service! Love the wait staff -- always friendly... More

Variety of food and prices on the menu for everyone. From burgers to steak. Good drinks and excellent view of the water and pier. Had a one man entertainer which was good too! I would recommend!

About the only thing this place has going for it is the view. The seafood is well below what I expect for a beach restaurant in the Gulf, the bartender was flat out ruderude, there is practically No seating for tables around the bar, and the beer selection is scant. The view is great and the host was extremely polite... More

Right next to the water, live music and great bartender (Danny). The food was good, only had calamari and shrimp cocktail, but the beer was cold and the atmosphere was fun.

Service was good and bad. Did not know what the veggie of the day was but responded well to other requests. Then blew it at the end when she asked if we were finished and I responded that I did not know yet. She walked away and returned and flipped the check on the table costing the house of any... More

I had a very tasty Shrimp burger and a Tropical Blowfish (beverage)! The atmosphere was adequate. We were there in the evening after sunset and the lighting was poor!

This was a very good experience. We were greeted by friendly staff right from the start and seated immediately. Lacy was terrific, suggesting items for my special diet. The music playing in the bar wasn't intrusive and reminded us of Key West. The food was good, Calamari, fish fingers, a large piece of cod in the sandwich and burgers. Reasonably... More

Any restaurant/bar on a beach gets at least a "C" from me, location is worth something. In this case, the physical location, adjacent to the municipal pier, distracts from the beach location. In addition, my grouper sandwich was okay. However, my wife raved about her shrimp burger, and based on the single bite I was allowed, I must agree. Beer... More
