“GREAT FUN - GREAT FOOD”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

We have been vacationing at Fort Myers and the area for years......This has always been one of my favorites...always a mix of locals and snowbirds.....they give you a coozie to keep your beer cold as you sit down...it says "return to bartender -stolen from S.O.B"....just the right kinda humor. I love soooo many places on the beach to eat but the SOB makes a Caribeann Shrimp....juicy shrimp swimming in a pasta red sauce full of jalapenos...with crusty bread to dip....my mouth is watering and i am 1200 miles away coming back less than 24 hours ago. It is an appetizer I share with NOBODY, get your own. Great food, great people, live music, open air with plastic to keep cold out when needed......if it looks full, WAIT...its worth it.

“Oysters”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

This open air bar has the best steamed oysters we have eaten in years. Cooked perfectly and with all the tools to attack with. The caesar salad was also great, the drinks and food moderately priced and the live entertainment super.

“Fun, non-touristy restuarant in the thick of things”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

A small, fun restaurant down one of the side streets with open air seating and a large bar area. Great food, with a well executed menu that sticks to mostly seafood and some meats. We went after a day fishing trip and they will cook your catch for you for a very small price. They did a wonderful job with our fish. We had half prepared with the mesquite, and half fried. The house made tartar was heavy on dill, and delish! The mesquite was by far the best though with a great deep flavor. We liked it so much we went back a few days later for the fun atmosphere, great food, and good service. It's worth the wait to get seated.

“Great seafood/bar experience”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

It's not fine dining but that's what makes it great! Good food, great (slightly loud) atmosphere, live music, wide nenu, cozies on your beer. Waitstaff is great. We got there early (at about 5 on the sunday of presidents weekend) and had to wait just a few minutes.
