    Smokin' Oyster Brewery (SOB)

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Sep 3, 2012

    Smokin' Oyster Brewery, or SOB for short, is about three blocks off the beach, so perhaps not quite as touristy as some of the places overlooking the water.

    We arrived on a Thursday evening about 9:30 or 9:45, just before the kitchen closed, and we left the restaurant and bar at about 11pm on the dot, and I think they locked the doors behind us on the way out. We grabbed two seats at the end of the bar and listened to a bit of the live music. For our drinks, we started with their Bahama mama mixed drink ($7) and a Breckenridge Brewery Vanilla Porter ($4 - late night happy hour!).

    For dinner, we ate like kings. We started with one dozen steamed oysters ($11). They were cooked and served with the shells closed, so we had to get a quick lesson in opening oyster from the bartender. For dinner we decided to get their pick two combo ($18) and a pick three combo ($21) and try all five of their fried seafood specialties: fried grouper, fried shrimp fried oysters, fried scallops, and fried clam strips. Everything was fantastic! For dessert (yes, somehow we had room for dessert), we split a piece of Key lime pie ($4).

    The Bridge: Pleasant Waterside Dining

    by AnnS Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We have a meal at The Bridge every time we visit Fort Myers Beach and always enjoy it. You can sit outside and enjoy views of Back Bay while you dine and if you're lucky, you'll see some dolphins.

    Although it is clearly visible from the bridge, it can be a bit tricky to get to because of a right-turn restriction but it's easy once you know how.

    The food is consistently good with excellent steaks and seafood. Service is fast and friendly and it's very good value for money.

    The only criticism I have is that doesn't advertise a closing time. I guess it depends on how busy they are but on several occasions, we've found them closed because we don't know how late is TOO late.

    Favorite Dish: Locally caught fish dishes.

    Big Game: Big Game has no game

    by christoph1960 Written Mar 22, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The place was only about half full. We were seated to our table, and waited and waited.
    I have very short patience for poor service, So after about 10 minutes we moved to
    the bar. We got our drinks and menues fairly quick. We asked our bartender if we
    could order food and she said sure, and turned and walked away making drinks and washed a
    few glasses, finally we got her attention and ordered. food was ok, except for the long hair in
    my wifes salad. I think they might be new so give them a couple months.
    Regular Florida bar food with a smattering of some seafood. Sports bar atmosphere,
    lots of flat screens. beer and wine, liquor was coming in a few days. Never went back.

    Favorite Dish: The 1/2 lb of shrimp.

    LANI KAI'S GLIDER LOUNGE: GREAT VIEWS OF THE BEACH

    by LoriPori Updated Jan 10, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After a lovely walk on the beach, our friend suggested to Hans and I, to have something to drink at the LANI KAI'S GLIDER LOUNGE. What a great idea that was. You go to the very top of the Lani Kai Island Resort and go out to the balcony where they have a long row of glider tables, where you can have a bite to eat or as we did, just have a drink and enjoy the views of the beach below. We sat there for about an hour. We all ordered soft drinks for $2.00 and refills were free. WooHoo!

    Lani Kai is a full service Hotel. All rooms face the Gulf of Mexico with private balconies and large, spacious rooms.
    Other features include:
    Rooftop Restaurant
    3 Beach Bars
    Live entertainment
    Heated Pool
    3 Gift Shops

    by LoriPori Written Jan 31, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hans and I were in the mood for breakfast, but it was dinner time. Then I remembered what great breakfasts PERKINS offered at any time of the day. I ordered the Senior "Traveler" ($5.29) which consisted of your choice of egg, sausage or bacon, muffin or pancakes. Hans had the Senior 2 Egg Omelet ($5.59).
    They also offer burgers, melt sandwiches, Steak, Pot Roast, turkey, mushroom 'n Swiss Chicken and Teriyaki Salmon.

    Matanzas Inn Restaurant: Delicious Seafood

    by AnnS Written Oct 24, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We always enjoy the Matanzas Restaurant. It's right on the water so you can watch the boats, and occasionally dolphins, passing by.

    The atmosphere is relaxed and the service is friendly and very efficient. All the locally caught seafood dishes we've had have been delicious.

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

    Parrot Key Caribbean Grill: Food & Fun

    by AnnS Written Oct 24, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had Parrot Key recommended to us by a local during our last trip. It's a very jolly restaurant that serves excellent food. You can choose whether to dine outside or inside and the decor is a lot of fun, with colourful parrots and Caribbean decorations all over the place.

    Most nights there is live entertainment in the bar area and you can enjoy the acts while you eat. You can also buy Parrot Key merchandise as a souvenir of your visit.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our evening there and will be returning.

    Favorite Dish: Tropical Safari Calamari

    The Bridge Waterfront Restaurant: Waterfront Dining

    by tpangelinan Updated Sep 10, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is located just off the left side before you go over the bridge into Fort Myers Beach. We were told this was a good restaurant but were very dispointed after we left. The food was not good, the service was not that good either, so we would say stay away. It's not the easiest place to get to and it just wasn't worth it. I don't know maybe they were having a bad week or someting but we will not try it again.

    Split Rail Restaurant: Home Cooking at Great Prices!

    by Dalifriend Written Sep 11, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This comfortable restaurant offers generous portions of your favorite home-style meals at terrific prices. The decor is simple, reminescent of your favorite diner. This is a popular place for breakfast in the mornings.

    You can also enjoy some beer with your dinner, if you so choose. Not sure about wine.

    Favorite Dish: Some of the meals I have had here are fried grouper, open face hot roast beef sandwich, and many hearty breakfasts. Any choice you make will be served by a friendly staff, and in good time.
