Enjoyed the American Grilled Cheese that comes with bacon and tomato as well as the slat & pepper kettle chips. Served on good Texas toast. Also had the pork BBQ quesida appetizer which was fine. Little loud on the C&W music. Amanda was most helpful.

Located in the 'historic' area this is a good place to sit, drink and snack. Busy, noisy, and full of life. Good selection of beers; table and bar seating; pool table; small patio outside. Short walk to the water.

Walking through the downtown area of Fort Myers can be an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon but at some time you need to stop and enjoy a cold beverage. When that time comes the City Tavern should be you place of choice. We have had lunch there several times but it seems this is our stopping off place prior... More

After 40 minutes and 2 conversations, food arrived with no chicken and ham. Never get napkins or silverware. Manager was no help either. Go for the drinks, pass on the... More

Thank you for stopping in to City Tavern and for taking the time to give your feedback. We did get overwhelmed during the Art Fest on Saturday and we apologize for the inconveniences. Our small kitchen tried its best to keep up with the abnormally large lunch rush all while offering our full menu. For large events we usually offer... More

What a nifty little bar. We dined at a cute little outside table & served by energetic, smiling, adorable Alexis. The veggie panini was to die for. A nice view of the river was included. We will be back often... & will ask for Alexis.

We decided to give City Tavern a try while exploring the area. We were very pleasantly surprised. Not just fried bar food. We had an appetizer serving of pulled pork dip with chips that was so very good. It had cream cheese and sour cream and sweet BBQ sauce so balanced. And then added chicken BBQ flat bread. A couple...

Popped into City Tavern to have a drink and what I found was a cool bar. There was live music, plenty of TV's with sports and lots of cold drinks. They also have a pool table and serve food there as well. The staff of City Tavern are just the nicest bunch of people. I can't speak on the food... More

We went for a few beers with friends. The environment is "classic" kind of dark, darts, pool table bar. It is clean and has indoor and outdoor seating. Really surprised by the greek salad with chicken - $12, fresh and good.
