Rodes Fresh & Fancy

Rodes began as a small roadside standon Luke Street and Bonita Beach Road. This family owned business has grown into a seafood, produce, gourmet market with full liquor and fine dining restaurant complex. Serving the great Bonita Springs area for nearly 30 years. Locals and seasonal guests love the clams, shrimp, stone crab (in season) and other awesome fish and seafood offerings. Of course our key lime pie is well known and shipped world-wide (and sold in many area restaurants). While our fresh from the boat seafood and fish offerings are our house specialties, we also offer meats and vegetarian dishes. Chef Kim prepares homemade soups daily that are outstanding….worth the trip all by itself.
