Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille FMB | 264/365 Things to Do
If you’re looking for fun things to do that include waterfront dining and possibly a little live music consider grabbing drinks or dinner at Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille. We had a last minute schedule change and decided to grab a fast bite as the sun was setting. It was a mid week visit and there was live music out back. You can choose to sit in air conditioning, too.
We sat outdoors, upstairs and ordered the lobster roll with coleslaw and a margarita flatbread pizza. We’re just water drinkers so we can’t render an opinion on the cocktails but they were pretty looking! It was a quiet dinner and the food was great. When we left we walked down stairs past the bar and listened to the band for a little bit.
Parking is tight at Doc Fords but there is “under bridge parking” and Doc Fords runs a golf cart shuttle so don’t worry about walking too far. You can get a ride both to and from the car if you have to park a distance away.
Doc Ford’s is located under the big bridge at the north end of Fort Myers Beach. You can see a menu and learn more at their website, www.docfords.com/ft-myers-beach. If you’ve not been to the restaurant before you might want to use GPS the first time. The road is a little complicated and you’d be compelled to drive on the wrong side of the bridge to get to the restaurant and that would be the wrong way. Ask me how I know.
