This is a great little place next to 2 Meatballs in the Kitchen. We've heard about the Chicken N Waffles but decided Togo a little lighter. My wife had the Crab Cakes which were 2 big cakes loaded with lots of flavor. Her 2 sides...More

We went to Fancys with a small group and all of us were very pleased with our meals. The pot roast was nicely spiced and the meat very tender. The liver and onions got rave reviews as did the meat loaf. The fried chicken was...More

From fried chicken, chicken and waffles, chicken fried steak and liver and onions to so many other Southern treats; Fancy's is now a go-to for my wife and I (new transplants from Baltimore to Ft Myers). We've always had great food, service and an overall...More

First time I came here and wasn't sure what to expect. I was delighted with the interesting and unique décor. Perhaps you could assume from the name, but it was indeed a fancier lunch place than most. The tables filled up fast between 11:30 and...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
How on earth can there be so many different reviews in the same time period for this one restaurant on the same subject? From "Wow" to "Save your Money" ... and the "service is great" to "haven't seen my waiter in 10 minutes to get a drink". Was looking to take out-of-town family here from the airport before they head north to Venice ... really hesitating at this point. If anyone would like to convince me otherwise, I'm game!
