    Nellies came recommended by several people as a "must eat " on Ft Meyers Beach. We were not disappointed. The hostess was top of the line... courteous and accomodating. Our waitress was exceptional... very friendly, not pushy. She was knowledgeable on the large menu, and helped us find a delicious meal that satisfied our appetite that day.

    Rainy day in SWFL looking for good food and a good view. We found it at Nervous Nellies. Our server Valerie was fabulous. So sweet with my daughter Reenie. Having said that several other servers, I forget their names, were just as wonderful. Beautiful view of back bay. Food was served hot and tasty. Next time we are down this way, we will be back.

    I had grouper basket and it was good. Not to much food though. Others had grouper sandwich and said was delicious. One had Ruben and said it was good. Other had crab cakes and they came out cold. They made a new dish and gave some bread while waiting. Kitchen seemed slow that night and drink prices seemed high. Would go back, if needed.

    I like the ambiance. We have had many of the menu entrees. I like the shrimp cocktail and the boiled dinner. Lobster Bisque is yummy, too. Great music. If it’s not too hot, eat outside. !

    We dine every year, due to the lovely setting and normally live music, but this year was a big disappointment. We called ahead to reserve a table for 7, saying we were celebrating 3 birthdays. When we arrived no nice greeting, they very evidently spoke about us .. In Spanish !! Showed us to our table, way out the way of everything ..chucked our cutlery and menus on the table, then took 10 minutes for a server to come and take our drink ! We very nearly got up to go, but persevered as food is normally so good. Food was pretty good - but service really let's this place down ! Sorry to say won't be back :-( Walked back up to Time Square and lots of other lively restaurants with music that I wish we had gone to. It will be interesting to see what and if the owner responds back with a reply ??

    We took the advice of some locals and sat at the bar. The appetizers are huge and half price. We enjoyed the Grouper bites and the bay bread. The painkiller drink was absolutely delicious!

    My friend and I have been coming here for several years and this is the first time we have had Brian S as our waiter. WOW is all I can say. What a fabulous and attentive waiter. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and was just so pleasant. We will certainly ask for him every time we visit. Oh... and the food and service was delightful. Thanks for a great time and great food. ***** stars all the way. 👍 Twyla

    We always enjoy dinner here when visiting Ft Myers Beach a few times a year. Tonight the food, atmosphere and service were all terrific as usual. Our waiter Thomas was excellent!

    Great place for a meal with great ambiance! Located on the water with options of dining inside or outside. Great menu with something for everyone to eat!

    Enjoyed eating at this trendy restaurant - did not enjoy having to pay $5 for parking our car! Our meals probably rated an 8 out of 10 for taste, 5 out of 10 for value for the $$. Service was a little slow, but I give them a little leeway since we had a group of 7 adults and 5 kids. After we FINALLY got our food, our server was very helpful in checking on us. The atmosphere was very festive and would have been better if we could have stayed on the porch. Thankfully, when the rain started we were able to move inside. Also note that the restrooms were VERY clean, kind of unusual for the beachy atmosphere.

    My family has always enjoyed visiting Nervous Nellies when we vacation in Ft. Myers Beach. This trip we took our daughter in law for the first time. While the food was still good, the service and management has gone downhill. We were seated on the outside patio one evening and overheard three conversations from guests who were less than thrilled with the service. Our party experienced long wait times regarding drink/food orders, but did not complain to management. The dark-headed female manager that evening was very rude to the guests and did not apologize for the poor service or cold food. At one point, she came over to a nice couple and asked them if they had a problem with the service. The guy said, "No" and she then said "Well I noticed that the tip was very small so I just thought I'd find out why!" All of us within earshot were completely shocked at her behavior. The gentleman told her that perhaps if she paid the wait staff more then the service would be better & the tips would be more. Everyone in our party (and others) started having conversations regarding the manager's rude behavior toward this couple. Sadly, I doubt that we will return. Wouldn't want this lady to call us out over the amount of a tip. Ridiculous!

    Stopped here for lunch on a recommendation from the boat driver. Boy am I glad we did. We have been vacationing here for several days and have struggled to find a good place to eat. We were seated promptly. Our waitress was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the food and drinks. My husband got the shrimp ceviche, I got the signature burger and fries. We were very happy with our meal. We also had 4 drinks. They have a drink called key lime martini. You have got to get this. It taste just like key lime pie. Good food for reasonable prices.

    Food was okay. Expected better. Probably will not eat here again. Many other places with better food.

    The food is really good and all but i think that the bar should be upstairs and the people who want to be at the bar are up there and the people that dont want to be at the bar should be downstairs because there were people screaming and they were drunk and it was kinda frightening

    Love to stop here for lunch on the boat. The menu has everything you could want! Plenty of seating outside or inside. Nice clean bathrooms and I love the salt scrub for your hands.
