Fodor's Review

Doc Ford's Rum Bar & Grille. For dependably well-prepared food with a water view, Doc Ford's is the top choice in Fort Myers Beach. A spinoff of a Sanibel Island original, its name and theme come from a murder-mystery series by local celebrity author Randy Wayne White. Diners rave about the Yucatan shrimp—steamed in the shell with spicy key lime butter. Other choice picks include the beach bread, pulled-pork sandwich, banana leaf–wrapped snapper, shrimp and grits with tomatillo sauce, and penne with rock shrimp. Live bands play Wednesday through Sunday. 708 Fisherman's Wharf, Fort Myers Beach, FL, 33931. 239/765–9660. Reservations not accepted.
