We had food and drinks multiple times at Bongo’s during our weeklong vacation. The service on the beach, at the pool and in the restaurant was excellent. Prices were fair, menu was good.

Loved the daily drink specials, and the staff always greeted us with a smile. We enjoyed watching our sports teams on the big tv screens, and the atmosphere was always fun!!

Great food, service and drinks! Ate there every day of our trip. I loved the fact that the servers had badges with their names and hometown on them. So nice for conversation!

An awesome poolside and beachfront location but the food was pretty average. Decent prices for tap beer but the specialty drinks are pricey. Good for a relaxing day at the pool and a quick snack but that's about it.

Great food and right next to the beach poolside. They have a decent bar to go along with the food and the wait time was less than 10 min.

We never went for lunch, but in the evening there is a parking lot across the street that charges $5.00, or if you go early enough, there is "meter" parking in the street all around.

Bongo's Beach Bar and Grill is the best beachfront dining option on Fort Myers Beach. Poolside seating offers a tropical experience, while viewing our newly created menu with a focus on local ingredients supporting the town fisheries. Pink Gulf Shrimp, Florida Black Grouper, and Mahi are all caught in our local waters. A variety of other menu favorites like flatbreads, burgers, and salads are also available. We cater to vegetarian, gluten-free, and other food allergy requests. Bongo's is the ideal location for entertaining out of town guests, a night out with friends, or a fun evening with family.
