We enjoyed a wonderful late lunch, early dinner.The food was excellent and the service suburb. My significant other had the deep fry shrimp and a Margarita, excellent choice. I had the seafood paella and one of there brews that was brewed for them exclusively simply delicious. A must stop if you around Fort Myers Beach!

We went for dinner and shared the Yucatan Shrimp, a half dozen Oysters on the half shell, Shrimp scampi flatbread, mojito special, and the fried ice cream dessert! We arrived at 4pm and were seated in the upper outdoor section. Jasmine was our server and she did an awesome job and gave great recommendations. This visit was our second one... More
