This is one of our all time favorite places to dine when we are at the beach. Excellent menu selection, great wait staff and the food is always great.

We sat on the deck (a little chilly & heater near us wasn't working) with views of bridge & the marina. There was a live band which was fun. Wait staff was wonderful.

Highly overrated . I had scallops and they had not been washed or soaked. I had dirt and grit in every other bite yuck. For the same money we ate dinner at Doc Ford's and had a much better meal. Jack's at the Pink shell was way better

Always enjoyed taking out-of-town visitors here to enjoy a meal while watching the boats (can sit indoors or outdoors). Food is excellent, but you have to pay for parking at the lot across the street, since they don't have their own parking.

We went there on a Saturday afternoon around 3pm. We chose the grouper basket and one of the specialty Rueben sandwiches. My grouper basket was delicious and I had leftovers, which warmed up great the next day for lunch. My husband enjoyed his Rueben sandwich and it was enormous.

Went for dinner with other coupled and sat outside on the deck. The drinks, food and service were best we had our whole trip!! Ordered the Lobster Mac as appetizer and split it between four of us...AMAZING!! Our awesome waiter recommended a dish for each of us and these meals did not disappoint...Best experience we've had...definitely will make it back...

Nice beachy coastal atmosphere! Excellent service and good. Huge menu selection for everyone. Includes a specialty bar for any drink of your choice along with the "house specials". If you haven't been to Nervous Nellies, you haven't been to Ft. Myers Beach!
