Been traveling to Ft. Myers each spring for two decades. Love the area and the golf and spring training. Will be back Wednesday for a week and again six weeks later.
Some of our favorites: Wyld's and A Table Apart on Bonita Springs Rd. Willing to drive for dinner at either. In Ft. Myers, we really like Sasse's -- yes, I know there are naysayers, but we know the menus and have grown to like the owners and chef and always enjoy our meals there. I like Bistro 41, which has admittedly had its ups and downs over the years, but in November they offered to offer their meatloaf as a special if I gave them notice. Cafe Lurcat in Naples has (had? -- hopefully not) an amazing early 3-course offer before 6:30 was it? Roy's is consistently good for food, service, and value, if you utilize their 3-course prix-fixe. Fortunately, my mom's clubhouse serves very good food, a Friday night seafood buffet, and a great crunchy grouper sandwich. I know it is a chain, but we don't have Bonefish Grille out here or where mom lives and they do a great job -- no wonder they're crowded.
I like hole-in-the-walls -- e.g. Grouper and Chips in Naples. Unfortunately, "An Insatiable Gourmet" isn't posting on his blog lately. I've always appreciated the consistent input here from LilMsFoodie and RevrendAndy and I apologize to others I'm not mentioning. My mom lives off of Daniels closer to the 75 than the 41, so anything along there would be especially helpful.
