The food was really good and it was very pretty to sit outside. There was live music and they were good but very loud. It was hard to talk to the people at our table. The kids loved walking around on the docks while we waited for our table. We will definitely go back.

It would be nice if on your website would have the hours that you are open besides the happy hours time element. Want to go there for lunch but can't find what tiome your restuarant opens for l;unch!

This is a great place for a drink or a great meal. We stopped in twice with our group and we enjoyed each visit.

They have an upper level deck and a lower level deck both overlooking the water. One thing I thought was great was their New England Clam Chowder.

Also they make a frozen key lime drink that the gals could not get enough of!

Overall a great place for lunch or dinner or just chilling out. They also have a hotel that is attached and I plan to stay their on our next visit.

Wonderful setting and very cordial wait staff. You can sit inside or outside on the deck over looking water. We watched Dolphins and tour boats. Food was a little pricy and only fair. You pay for the location.

Matanzas is one of my favorite bar/restaurants in Fort Myers Beach. The 'Upper Deck' is my favorite part of the restaurant. The view is great. You look out onto the bay and the bridge to Fort Myers. More often than not, they have live music, a stand alone musician. On Sundays, around the horseshoe bar, they every one of the NFL games. Sunday, during the games, they have drink specials. The service is always friendly.
It's a great place to watch the games or just enjoy the view.
