This was the end of our vacation and we decided to have a final lunch at Stan's. You sit at a picnic table outside near the mangroves. A guitar player sings and plays Buffet. We ordered the fried shrimp basket. It came with slaw, tartar, and fries. Rather on the skimpy side with six shrimp. The shrimp and slaw were great! Fries were average. Service was non-existent. We had to get refills by going up to the bar. Getting the bill was another long wait. My tip reflected the lack of service attention. Apparently this was Margaritaville.

Stan's was a fun Sunday afternoon stop for peel & eat shrimp, cold beer, and great music -- the kind you want to get up and dance too (including the buzzard lope). Fun people-watching, too.

Someone in our group got a cheeseburger (so-so), the rest of us had the shrimp. I don't think they're famous for their food, but that's not what we went there for.

We'd return again for the music and laid-back atmosphere.

We didn't eat…..just had a couple of drinks and listened to the music (and people-watched)! It was fun and we will definitely go back.

When we stared planning our trip to Ft Myers Beach, my sister said she would take us to this great bar. We met friends from Naples there on Mothers Day and had one of the best times I have ever had. We set right next to the water and watched the boats come in and out. We loved the band that was playing and watching the people dance. We didn't go there for the food as we were eating somewhere else later on so I can't speak to how good it was.We did share some snacks and they were fine. I can say that the mud slides were great!! There was 10 of us there and everyone had a ball. Thanks Stans.
