My husband and I stopped in on our honeymoon for a drink at the bar. We ended up staying longer than we planned because we were having so much fun and the margaritas are so good! (And strong) the best part was the service. Danny is an excellent bartender! Very kind and friendly, especially considering he worked New Year's Eve... More

What's better than having a drink with a fantastic beach & golf view during happy hour? Absolutely NOTHING! Our bartender Mike was awesome even though Happy Hour was going strong...never waited long for a beverage. Outstanding lunch as well!

Visited on a busy Monday night right after Christmas. Traffic getting to Fort Myers Beach was backed way up and we almost turned around, but we kept with it and I found a place to park ($10). We shopped a bit and watched the sunset, then from the pier noticed there were open tables on the deck for Pierside, and... More

Great Location, Dirty Bar. Plastic cups used when seated. Minimal wine selections at bar -- i.e. no white zin (as nasty as it is, its the most popular wine). Indifferent bar servers. Been there 4 times and

Went to Pierside for a late lunch/ early dinner with 3 kids. Location is great and my son who didn't want to eat played in the sand right in front of us which was great. I had the crab cakes and they were alright. I would not eat them again. My wife had a burger and she was not all... More

We visited this grill on recommendation of a local and we were certainly not disappointed. Having three generations in our party with the age ranging from 10 to 75 it was pleasing to find somewhere to eat that pleased all members of our party. Great food in a fantastic seafront location. Our waitress was really friendly and happy to make... More

We had dinner one evening here. The food is great and it is right next to the pier, so you can see the comings and goings. There was a great heron fishing that night right in front of us. The food was excellent and they have a great bar as well as the patio dining. Right in the heart of... More
