Breakfast Restaurant

Heavenly Biscuit, nestled on Fort Myers Beach was our go-to breakfast spot growing up. (This is also where my little sister’s love for biscuits and gravy began). They are known for their amazing biscuits and gravy and cinnamon rolls. After hurricane Ian, they have shifted to a food truck where you can still get their delicious treats.

Seafood Restaurant


Toasted coconut colada at Dixie Fish Co. in Ft. Myers, Florida

A trip to Fort Myers isn’t complete without a stop at Dixie Fish Co, one of our top recommendations for where to eat in Fort Myers, Florida. This waterfront restaurant is located under the Fort Myers Beach bridge and offers fresh seafood, delicious cocktails, and live music. Our go-to menu items here are the grouper bites, shrimp burger, whole fried fish, crab sliders, and so much more. We also have to order a Dixie Tea and a toasted coconut colada as soon as we arrive!

Sushi Restaurant

Blu Sushi is a great sushi spot known for their great quality sushi and their lunch/happy hour specials. We love their lava drops, volcano roll and lychee martinis!

Cocktails at Backyard Social in Ft. Myers, Florida

Backyard Social is a new spot offering a wide variety of delicious food from local food trucks, a full bar, games, and live outdoor entertainment. The fried chicken sandwich from Addison's was amazing and we loved the truffle mac from Easy Cheesy.
