I went with my family here for the first time in May. GREAT spot. We loved the view of the bay area and the large outdoor seating. Since we are on the island a lot I thought the prices were a little high considering we like to venture out a lot. However, if you aren't eating every meal out this is a great option. Not everything is out of a reasonable range, but I wouldn't want this high of a bill for each meal. There are plenty of places that have good drink and food options at a lower price to average things out.

Nellie's is the first stop getting into Fort Myers Beach, the service was friendly, we sat upstairs overlooking the docks and enjoyed our appetizer that was recommended by the waitress. We had the Seafood Bruschetta and it was to die for! This was a favorite by our waitress and we can see why! Amazing!! Great start to our vacation! Thank you!

It's a typical beach bistro, but has some surprises. The food! Is excellent. Some of our favorites there: Fish and chips, fried shrimp basket, just about everything is great.

Now then: The surprise: Coconut Onion Rings!!!! The very best thing I've had in Ft Myers Beach yet.
