Where to Eat in Cape Coral: The Best Restaurants and Bars

April 14, 2018 Renato Branum

Cape Coral's temperate climate, abundant forests, and access to the Gulf of Mexico make it an ideal destination for boating, fishing, hiking, and many other outdoor activities. Cape Coral is the perfect destination for any outdoor enthusiast, and from hiking one of the many trails at the Charlotte Harbor Preserve State Park to fishing at the Cape Coral Yacht Club there are activities for just about everyone. Coral Oaks Golf Course is a great place to work on your game, and if history is your thing or you just love beautiful flowers, don't forget to check out the Cape Coral Historical Society Museum to see some interesting relics and their prized rose garden.

Reviewed By Ohiogirl00 - Cleveland, Ohio

We tried three different types of pizza and loved them all. The toppings were flavorful and unique. The crust was thin and light. The garlic knots were delicious. The only complaint was how long it took for a pick up order. We will definitely be eating here again when we are in Cape Coral.

Our friends invited us to brunch and they chose Slates. They only take reservations on Sunday. Service is excellent waiters are very polite and efficient. The food was good but not exceptional. I had an omelet muffalata was a little over cooked egg. My wife had their classic eggs benedict. Overall it was fun lunch with mardi gras band walking around.

Reviewed By wojo2015 - Amarillo, Texas

Went to Fish Tale Grill after our first choice was closed, did we luck out!
It was some of the best seafood we have had this season. With the seafood market next door, you would expect it to be fresh but the food was unbelievable. Hogfish stuffed with crab, Seafood Alfredo and the the grouper were superb. We
will add Fish Tale Grill to our must do list .

Come get "Twisted" at the Twisted Lobster Seafood Grille, Cape Coral!

Reviewed By goldpedler - Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, United States

Went earlyish on a Wed evening, for the lobster tail special. Tons of people waiting, already. Sat at outdoor bar for a beer while we waited- that bartender was REALLY hopping- he was also waiting outdoor tables ! The indoor waitresses seemed crazy busy too. I saw this restaurant compared with Lobster Lady online, and yes, they're both seafood restaurants, and both very busy ! Both Lobster Lady is a whole diff ambiance- much more "upscale", as are their prices. We were satisfied at Twisted Lobster, considering the great price. The "conch fritters" were practically ALL fritter, and very little conch.

The Dek Bar

We're best described by one of our many 5 Star Reviewers, J D "Real Florida" There is a reason The Dek has a loyal clientele. The thin crust pizza is great. The bartenders are friendly and competent. The patrons are working class. If you want beautiful, plastic people with too much make-up on and $700 blue jeans go somewhere else. If you want a fun time, with good music (I highly recommend Tequila Tom's acoustic guitar session almost every Sunday afternoon) come here. Dave J is correct it is not a place for kids. Well-behaved dogs are welcomed. :) It is a bar for adults, not politically correct cry babies who are easily offended by dirty jokes or tattoos.

During my month in Cape Coral, I took 2 different people there for the Thurs eve NY strip special. The steak, salad & potato are pretty basic but they are FANTASTIC for the special price ! People were smoking there, and we're not used to that, where we live- but it wasn't too bad in the "porch" area...

Read about the good food. Very smoky. Loud music (good tunes) with a hometown feel where everyone knew each other. Po boy and a burger were good with a beer. Daily specials, but the smoke got to us, unfortunately. If smoke doesn't bother you, food...MoreThanks for the nice review. Take care. Betty Davis

One of our favorite places to stop in. Always have the Fish, Chicken, Shrimp & Fries Combo for two. You can tell it is made fresh. A little bit more expensive but worth every morsel. Great service too! Love the British decor as well.

The waitress at the Pool Bar at our Hotel recommended this location for dinner; we are glad we went. The food was good and the atmosphere is a nice neighborhood Italian restaurant.
