Wonderful evening all around. Sometimes it just works out that way. The entry bar was very crowded, but we worked our way through, walking the narrow boardwalk lined with tables, bypassing many tables already occupied. We lucked out and a perfect table by the railing opened up, with the best view of the sunset, just between the palm trees. Our... More

This has to be one of the primo spots in Naples to have dinner and drinks. The place is always packed and waits can be long, but they have ingeniously set up a long, and I mean long bar leading up to the restaurant from the beach. You don't mind the wait since the views are sublime and you wind... More

Visited Gumbo Limbo while at the Ritz Carlton, atmosphere is very casual, but upscale entrees. The menu is a perfect balance of main entrees and appetizers. Note: Chicken Wings are delicious, yet can do a number of your stomach. Lobster Quesadilla's and Guacamole and Chips are superb. We love our servers, Alex and Christian! Very accommodating!

We love (or used to live) going to Gumbo Limbo at the Ritz on the beach in Naples. Once a year, special treat kind of thing. Alas this years trip was not like it used to be. There were some items that were fantastic but some that were horrible and way way below the Ritz standard. But first the good... More
