Smoke House 18550 San Carlos Blvd, Fort Myers (239) 466-9666
Unique fish restaurant. More like a covered lanai prettily decorated with plants and fairy lights with small kitchen preparing the freshest fish in the area. Very casual and bring your own alcohol! Order the ‘As much as you can eat Grouper’; it’s the best deal anywhere. Also has a small fish market inside selling their latest catches and home-smoked fish.
Love Boat Home Made Ice Cream 16229 San Carlos Blvd, Fort Myers (239) 466-7707
Not a restaurant but a little roadside cottage selling what most locals believe to be the very best ice cream in the county.
First Watch Restaurant 13211 McGregor Blvd, Fort Myers (239) 437-0020

Romano’s Macaroni Grill 13721 S Tamiami Trl, Fort Myers (239) 433-7786
Delicious Italian food in lively casual atmosphere. A better bet than Carrabba’s as lines not quite so long here. Honesty system in place regarding house wine. They put a bottle on the table and you tell them how many you’ve had.
