Doc Ford's Rum Bar & Grille Review

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. The Yucatan shrimp—steamed in the shell with spicy key lime butter—has earned acclaim. 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 weekend and Wednesday nights.
