Deep Lagoon Seafood and Oyster House - Fort Meyers
If making a reservation here and you reserve for "outside". That's not guaranteed, you are only telling the restaurant your preference. They will sit you where ever they want.
Disappointed in Deep Lagoon. Seated at a table that was nearly in a passageway. Continually got bumped and jostled by wait staff and patrons walking by our table. Had requested an outdoor table but was seated indoors. One of o9ur party never received his salad. Another had dirty silverware (sign of a dirty kitchen?) and had to wait to eat until clean dinnerware was delivered. One entre was skimpy while others were adequate. Wait staff was busy beyond what was reasonable. Felt like a number - just hurry and leave so another party can be seated.
Very busy that day. They didn’t seem prepared for it
Disappointed in food service and cleanliness
extremely noisy, waiter unattentive,
It was my birthday and celebrated with my wife. Our server Rachel was wonderful, excellent service with a smile and provided very good recommendations. The food was excellent and and the restaurant treated me with a free slice of key lime pie for my birthday. We were seated outside on the floating deck where the boats were moored, which wasn’t the best location but was satisfied that these extra tables were sufficiently distanced from each other, at least 10 feet.
With so many good seafood restaurants in Ft Myers, we finally tried Deep Lagoon. The extensive menu was impressive and our selections - Tropical Mahi and Blackened Snapper - were excellent. Will be adding Deep Lagoon as one of our favorites!
Great food. Did nothing for a 63rd birthday that we mentioned. But overall, very good.
Great food prepared well. If you like fresh seafood this is the place!
Amazing dinner! Made reservations so had a minimal wait. Highly satisfied
As always, a great meal!
Great experience. Absolutely everything we ordered was delicious! The blue crab croquettes, the crab rangoon and grouper fingers best starters I have tasted. I’m an oyster fan and their oyster selection was of quality.Service was good as well. For the quality of the food, the price was spectacular. I could easily say this is one of the best seafood restaurants I have been in years.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent! We enjoyed the Small Plate options (Crab Rangoon & PEI Mussels) and the special of the day-yellowtail snapper with blue cheese risotto and grilled asparagus. The Key Lime Pie was tart and tasty!
Waiter was attentive. Service was fast. Food was very good. Ambiance was as expected in a moderately priced seafood restaurtant. Recommend without hestiation.
I made reservations on Open table for a table outside and stated that it was for a 70th birthday. I was very disappointed that they sat us inside next to the kitchen and never even mentioned my mother-in-law’s birthday. We had dropped her off at the front door and she was already seated when we came in. I would have said something if I had been the one to check in. It was a good meal but again, I was just disappointed with the service.
For dinner, we got the Captains platter (the grouper was fishy), steak, cedar plank salmon and mahi mahi. It was all pretty good. We got the take home key lime pie (completely missing flavor).
We made a reservation days in advance for an outside table only to find ourselves being seated inside and no outdoor tables available . We were seated inside where tables were practically on top of each other , so close we could hardly move in our seats. This is totally unacceptable during a pandemic!
In addition, one entree came to the table cold, and other items we ordered we delivered incorrectly.
This is a great place to dining and have drink with friends.
Love the location on the water so the ambiance was excellent. The service wad friendly and efficient so top notch. However my wife and I disappointed in the food. We shared a bowl of lobster bisque but it had very little taste. Her risotto was very gummy even after the waiter offered some lobster bisque to loosen it up. I have the special and it was Luke warm. Well give it another try to see if the food quality improves.
Great place to eat!
Valet was great. Server was inattentive
I was billed through American Express for the cost of the meal but I include a generous tip that was NOT reflected in my Amex billing statement, I am trying to figure out how to get the tip to the server who was excellent,
It was our first time to the area. The mahi Rachel was perfect. My taco shells were too hard to pick up. The beans and potatoes were the best part.
Best seafood preparation in Ft. Myers. Great location. Will return soon.
We come here once a week for great seafood! This time we. came for a friends birthday. The food was on point and our waiter was great!!
The food was overcooked and dry. The portions were just below average for a seafood restaurant. The valet attendant retrieved my car but it was facing the wrong way to exit the parking lot.
It was busy and the noise level was difficult for a table of five to converse.
Laurie took great care of us! We will plan to return.
Not the place for a romantic dinner, too noisy! Hogfish was good, but overpriced.
We reserved an inside table on OpenTable and selected bar seats, but when we arrived and check in, the hostess walked us outside to a table located on the floating dock. I didn’t have a jacket or a sweater and as our reservation was in the evening it was very chilly. I was freezing and Not happy at all. Deep Lagoon needs to fix their seating reservation system on OpenTable to not include bar seats!!!
Rather upset about the lack of masks through out the crowded restaurant, even the servers didn’t wear their masks correctly. When your trying to be careful and you want to enjoy gathering with friends in the outdoors and the restaurant doesn’t seem to care makes you not want to suggest your restaurant to anyone!
Very good fresh fish - Mahi-Mahi was great. Had firecracker shrimp app - excellent
Nice Happy Hour too
Watched sunset outside --- GREAT place for date, romantic, all groups - classy, elegant good food and service
Service was poor. Food took too long to get ready.
Loved the whole experience!
Outstanding as always!
The restaurant was exceptionally crowded and very loud, not at all conducive to enjoying a meal. The food was tasty but not hot enough. Our server did not come by to ask how everything was after our food was served so there was no opportunity to do anything about it. Our server was running in a lot of directions and made us feel left behind, we were constantly waving him down for things. Honestly, I was glad when the meal was over and we could leave.
Was not aware that we would be seated outside when I made the reservation. Would have preferred to eat inside since it was a cold night. The heaters helped but it still was too cold to be eating out doors.
All good! Valet parking; attentive service; great food!
Enjoy Deep Lagoon every time we go. Friday night was as good as always.
