My family visited First Watch in Estero for lunch on a recent visit to Fort Myers Beach and it was well worth the visit. Very good food and worth the visit. Food was reasonably priced and tasty. I had the beef eater sandwich with tomato basil soup and it was very good and filling. My wife and kids had the French Toast and all were satisfied and left full. I'd definitely recommend a visit to this restaurant if you are in the area. Breakfast served all day and the menu is completely organic. You will not leave disappointed.

One of the more consistent chain restaurants - and it always feels local. The food is always good - lunch and breakfast

Came for breakfast, it was excellent. We came with our three boys who were hungry and the portions were generous. Prompt and friendly service. Creative dishes were prepared well. Recommend the carrot cake pancakes and the Greek omelet.

Quality ingredients at reasonable prices; well served by Jamie on two occasions this week. Use the nowait app to reserve table on weekends.

I used to love this place for their breakfast, favorite was the wheat germ pancakes. The service is slow and rude is you go when there busy and when the food comes out it has been luke warm and you can tell the difference in the quality. It can be noisy and sometimes the wait can be up to 30 minutes and there is tables that are clean and available. Don't understand that one unless they don't have the help they need. Would not go out of my way to go back
