We always eat at the Whale on our first night at Fort Myers Beach and always have the Coconut Shrimp. We have been coming for at least 10 years and the standard of the food has always been excellent and this year was no exception.

Great food for such a diverse menu. Awesome service too! Baby back ribs were excellent, as were the sweet potato fries and chinichurri/pesto on the taquitos! Our waitress was awesome too!

We both had the breaded shrimp. Delicious. Especially the coleslaw. It’s wonderful sitting up top in the evening air with a beer and good food. (And the music downstairs was good too)
