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.
