The grouper and the crab cakes were very good. You won't be disappointed here. Also try the rum flights are worth trying.
Very poor quality / taste. Way over priced
Good wax’s excellent definitely would go again
The food was amazing and the views of the harbor were breath taking. I would highly recommend Doc Ford's on Fort Myers Beach to anyone.
Food was terrific with great service! Great view of harbor!
DOC FORDS IS ALWAYS, 100%.
Our server, Mary G, was SPECTACULAR!!
This was my first visit here. Our service & food were great. I’d definitely visit again
Our server Jonathan was awesome. Food and service were all excellent.
Our server was wonderful and the food was spectacular. Great experience and very enjoyable time with the entire family. Thank you!
Sean was truly a great server. Very attentive and amazing knowledge of the menu. I was recommended this restaurant by multiple friends. Food was average. Don’t understand the hype.
Excellent food, top quality and always leave satisfied. Outdoor heaters are a huge bonus
Great service, food was good. We had a good time. Will go back again.
The six of us each had something different and we will all pleased. Just so hard to decide what to have. Will need to go more often. I usually get shrimp and grits but this time had a salad which was great. Shrimp and Grits or Cuban next time.
We went Tuesday night and loved it. Went back the following night and a table of people were so rowdy we could not enjoy our meal. They were so loud it ruined the dinner and the evening.
Love the scallops on Monday night and the Ahi tuna appetizer! Can’t beat either!
The Yucatan shrimp is delicious!
Always great food! Hard to get into, plan ahead. Live music! Great service , waitress and waiters are always available and charming. Beautiful views! Casual comfortable setting for all occasions or just a meal.
Great service and food!!
As always Doc Ford’s comes through with a spectacular dining experience. Our group was there for a National training meeting and we were all thrilled with our food, service and value.
Food and service couldn’t have been better not to mention the view of the water. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
This is a fantastic restaurant located right on the water. We had an outside table over looking the water and the food selection, service and pricing was excellent.
Great ambience, great food and service. The menu has something for everyone and you won't be disappointed, make your reservation and enjoy!
Special Birthday Dinner, one of just a few times out since COVID restrictions. Requested outside, granted upstairs, seated spread apart, masks on everyone. Food and service was amazing as always. Perfect night. Thank you
Mussels were fantastic along with the chowder.
We even purchased the sauce the mussels were in so we could take home!
The food was awesome and the server was patient as we were not very decisive in the beginning. Music was phenomenal. If I would ding on anything it would be there decision to not open the bar area due to the tropical storm threat. However they seated us 45 minutes early and the rest is history.
Great outdoor space looking over the boats and water. Good Covid measures in place. Excellent service (although I don't like to be "asked" to review a place, but sweet girl anyway. The food is why you come here because we loved the shrimp!
It is a Florida highlight. This is a restaurant chain that keeps a high standard. Will plan to go back when in the area again
Everything was marvelous. Our only "complaint" is that we were seated under a large wall fan and the person sitting closest to it could not hear much of the rest of our conversations, the fan was quite loud. Otherwise we enjoyed it all.
Wasn't a five star due to the wait for our main course. But appetizer was out quickly, food was excellent, and our server, David, was great!
OMG. So much fun! Loved it. Favorite place in FMB and now I'm reading the novels!!
30th anniversary week
It was our first visit and our anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our waiter, Alexis, took good care of us and explained any questions we had on the dishes that we ordered.
Awesome experience overall. Honestly the best dinner and mojito I’ve ever had!
Our waitress Sandy was top notch! Food was delicious and the birthday dessert was yummy.
Sunday lunch and live music. Excellent choice!
Lobster roll was excellent so was pulled pork sandwich and crispy chicken. Had a rum flight - found a really nice new one.
The server was awesome; however, the check crew by the deck made me feel like we were bothering them.
Great food and always consistent. Great place for dinner and music.
Clam chowder solid but didn't wow me. Seared tuna was good but tuna was too thick and still cold although seared! Panko Fish knocked it out of the park. Key lime pie tasty but tiny lol
I had the flounder and it was very good. I would have it again on my next trip
I had the special...pecan encrusted snapper with blue cheese risotto....simply AMAZING. Alfredo was our server. He was attentive and fun! Thank you for great food and service!
