Popped in for a quick bite and it did not disappoint. Indulged in the shrimp & lobster cocktail. Very tasty.

Varied, large menu. Great service. Lunch and dinner. Huge portions. Great sides: fries, cornbread, potatoes. Shrimp yum! Chicken salad yum! Steak yum! Great views of the water. Eat in or out. Definite must while in Fort Myers beach. Desserts, drinks, they have it all!

We went during happy hour and sat at the bar. Server was excellent. Quick and attentive. Got more food than we should have for the price. Would definitely recommend. Even had sugar hand scrub in the bathroom.

It is unusual for a restaurant not to get something right, but Nervous Nellie's didn't score highly in any area. The staff was courteous, but not attentive. The drinks we ordered looked like they sat at the bar a while before being served. Their special...More

It may be the same as the dinner menu. They have a huge selection, something for everyone. From chicken fingers to seafood.

Unfortunately, I can't answer your questions. I only went there for dinner. I will suggest giving them a call perhaps...!
