We went for dinner on a rainy night. The lighting was a little bit dingy for my liking. The food was all ok but I thought it a bit expensive. If we had been able to sit outside overlooking the sea I might not have minded as the location is great. We also had a little live music filtering through... More

We visited Fort Myers Beach the last week in September and the first week in October. Having read the reviews and looking at the location it looked ideal. Disappointingly this was not the case. we sat down after a short wait around 7.45 pm just after the sun had set. Unfortunately the meal we ordered was cold. Again my of... More

A beautiful Gulf beach setting and views of the Pier and The Gulf. Their menu has many fine choices. Our favorite is their fresh-caught Grouper Sandwich served with 2 large pieces of Grouper! They also have a live singer with guitar doing favorite songs. Seating is under an umbrella table outside or go inside. This April, will be our 9th... More

We walked in to this place excited to enjoy a few drinks and snacks. The waitress was nasty! she barely bothered to say hi and grudgingly answered our questions about the menu. We finally decided that we better just get out of her hair and stop messing up her day by being there so we left. Very disappointing.

I absolutely loved the coconut shrimp. Ate here twice. Service was excellent and so was the staff. The view of the sunset added to our visit.

We have eaten lunch here on previous visits to the area.Since our last trip the restaurant has been refurbished with new tables and chairs and new menu. Unfortunately, although it is a super spot to sit by the beach and watch the ocean and beachgoers we found the food to be less enjoyable. The fish was not so tasty and... More

Pierside Grill has updated their menu and I highly recommend their salads. You will not go away hungry! Very fresh veggies - My party all ordered the chicken salad and it was outstanding! Great service - expect to pay around $9.00-$15.00 for lunch.

When we travel to Marco Island, we always make the 45 minute trip to Ft Myers specifically to eat here. The outdoor eating area is immediately adjacent to the Ft Myers pier. We like to eat before sunset, then stroll onto the pier to see the sun go down over Sanibel Island. They have recently upgraded all the tables and... More
