Rodes Seafood: Had the stuffed lobster. Stuffing was the best such item ever, flavorful and filled will scallops and medium size whole shrimp, the lobster however was a rotted smelly dead thing that was removed untasted. I switched to scrod which was uninteresting. My companions thought the broiled grouper and the blackened grouper tasted the same: bland. I would go back for anything prepared with their secret stuffing, but it is a special item and not always available.

Iguana Mia: respectable, fresh, tex-mex style cooking. Good ingredients, nice flavor. Have a couple 2-fer-1 margaritas and you'll be happy.

Zorbas's Greek Restaurant: (Behind Hampton/Holliday Inn Express). Excellant Greek menu, fresh, generous portions, tasty, reasonably priced. Very Greek Family atmosphere, warm and friendly. I had the appetizer platter for 2, for me alone, and did not go wrong. Wish I could get companions who will order sganaki with me, they all mince around their little greek salads and look anorexic.

Maccaroni grill: Fresh, tasty, generous portions, nice salad, crispy vegetables, attentive service. I would prefer to frequent mom & pops places, but this huge chain pretty consistently delivers the goods.

Should have probably driven to Naples (12miles) for better choices. Corks has an inviting 5 to 6pm early bird dinner.

We really enjoyed the Corkscrew Swamp Reserve, about 15 miles east of Bonita Springs. Lots of birds, gators, snakes, frogs, etc for an afternoon walk. 2.25 miles of elevated trails through 5 ecosystems. Fun.
