Just visited Bert's for the first time and can't wait to return. The location on the water is wonderful and I highly recommend outside seating. We even sat at our table and watched dolphins frolicking in the water. Menu selections we chose were fish tacos, shrimp tacos, and chicken caesar salad and all were delish and reasonably priced. As others... More

Great place for a beer inside, bartender is very friendly, outside has music with a great water view. Food is good. The specials are always good. Great day just to sit and drink and enjoy the sun and view .

If I view this place for what it is, it's really okay. It's pretty much a bar that serves the usual Florida fried food and has some outdoor seating facing south down Matlacha Pass. I mention this as it's a better place to go in the early evening, as the sun isn't burning a hole through you off the bay.... More

Fresh, delicious food, but pricey for what you actually get. In season it is so crowded with out of towners that you can hardly hold a conversation. Try sitting outback and catching one of the most beautiful views around.

This is really a down home place on the docks overlooking the water. It's colorful and has a neat local small sea town atmosphere. They have their own metal drum musician rapping out pleasant Caribbean melodies. We saw dolphins jumping in the harbor during lunch - Awesome! The local seafood is good and we all opted for some form of... More

A recommendation from a friend made us visit this gem on a windy but sunny afternoon. You couldn't tell from the facade but what an atmosphere! And the food - just what we liked.We'll be back!

We were in on a busy Saturday night, but the waitstaff was still friendly and courteous. The Grouper Sandwich might be the best on the island. The band was lively and fun, making this a great place to end a long day. Don't wait too late to walk in as seating by the band can get filled up as the... More

Bert's is a great spot to soak up some sun, fun, music and chow. Reminiscent of a great dive bar on the water. Worth the trip. Mike was our server--good guy, good service, even though he was a Patriots fan!

75 year oldtime Waterfront Restaurant and Bar with a Million Dollar view. Local seafood. Both local and national entertainment with no cover charge. Recommended by Southern Living, Coastal Living, Florida Travel & Life, Boston Globe, and American Airlines to mention a few. Quality food at reasonable prices. Great place to relax, enjoy the view and perhaps to see dolphins and/or manatees.
