Often meet old friends who Winter in Fort Meyers...it’s a great half way point. We are in Venice. The food and service are always very good. We sat outside on the deck which was perfect except that it was really LOUD! Found that we really prefer the smaller back porch. It’s much easier to talk. I like that we are never rushed and can catch up with friends we rarely see. One of our favorite water spots!!
Jimmy was our server and did a great job. I was entertaining out of town guests and they loved the place. Jimmy made the experience fun!
Wonderful setting, very good food, excellent service
Great location on water and huge restaurant. Sit outside for the best experience and views. Recommend a reservation even for lunch because it’s a very popular place. Portions huge but nearly everything is fried. Salads were only okay. You could make the same at home. Disappointed that there was no crab legs offered for lunch. How did that happen when it’s a crab/fish place? Service was on point.
Wonderful place to eat. We sat on the veranda overlooking the marina. Alaskan King crab was really good. What made it memorable was our waitress ("Kirsten"). She was very attentive and very friendly. Definitely recommend this place for seafood, service and the view!
the mac and cheese was like cheese soup with mac and lobster
The lobster roll was not good, the fish and chips were very good, the gropper sandwich was outstanding
Super spot...meet friend there several times a year...parking spots scarce in feb!!
The water view and atmosphere were excellent. Everyone was happy with their food choices. But it did take 45 minutes for the food to arrive.
We bring all of our out of town visitors here!
Lobster and crab macaroni and cheese was awesome. Loved it. A lunch special, a wrap with flank steak was also very good. The steak was cooked perfectly and nicely seasoned
We are never disappointed at Laishley’s! The food is always good. The wait staff has been trained to please. The view is difficult to beat, and they take reservations! 😜
Had 7pm reservations & we were seated immediately on the outside deck overlooking the marina. Beautiful night for outdoor dining. Service was excellent. 3 of the 4 meals were wonderful, the other was good but not great. All seafood was fresh. All in all a lovely experience.
I am so glad I made a reservation. Lunch for 4 on a Monday and the place was packed. Since I was picking the place and no one else had been there you hope all like your choice and they did. We all ordered something different and all loved their selection. Service was quick. View was beautiful. Food was great.
Came late on a Sunday and got seated outside. Most people were leaving by the time we got there so it wasn't crowded. Great service, good food, nice setting.
This place is huge though so I'm sure it can get very busy, crowded, noisy, and slow. Seats something like 600.
It's about what you would expect for a touristy kind of place. But, our service was excellent and the food was better than we expected. Not gourmet or fancy by any means but certainly good.
Sat at high top in bar area. Great water views. Food was very good and for such a busy place, better than expected. Our server (Tiara) was very attentive.
The restaurant was very cold. Our stuffed flounder with crab was pretty good, but the white fish on top of white potatoes was the proverbial polar bear in a snowstorm. Did I say the restaurant was VERY cold? The dessert was good too, but it was really cold. Nice view out the window if you stand up, since I needed to jump up and down and warm up a bit. Did I say the restaurant was very cold?
Group of six ordered a variety. All was excellent except two cheese steaks which were dry an over cooked.
Met friends for Sunday lunch. Everyone had the grouper sandwich and throughly enjoyed their meal. Sitting outside on the bay was delightful.
The food was good but the flies ruined the experience. We have eaten here often and this was the worst of all our visits.
Great food with a great view. We will be back! Good value for the money. Enjoyed the seafood options.
Our food was good but not very warm--we didn't send it back because it had taken quite a while to get it and we didn't want to wait any longer!! But we'll be back!!!
Draft beer not cold enough--had to ice it. otherwise everything great
Great Grouper sandwiches and relaxing on the water.
We have lived here for a few years and have never came over. So our 1st time there and it was wonderful.
Since I am a visitor for only a month during the year, I will say that this is one of the best places I have been....this was my third visit for lunch and to meet friends....great experience, great food, great atmosphere, great waitstaff! Keep up the good work!
Disappointed with the grouper filet, was under heat lamps, not hot, and bland. The sushi however was 4 star. Appetizers were 4.5 stars, blue fingers, coconut shrimp and calamari all good to excellent. Very noisy at 5pm on a Friday outside, but gorgeous view. Service was good. Make a reservation as this restaurant gets very busy and there is waiting time.
Introduced new folks to the restaurant....we’ll all be back again. Food was excellent as always but our waiter seemed preoccupied and the service as a result was very slow.
Fantastic setting outside. Wonderful menu. It was very difficult to hear others at our table because of the noise level. Waitress was very knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. She knew all the menu offerings well and explained all.
