There are many lovely restaurants on the water in Fort Myers, but none can match the Lighthouse Waterfront Restaurant for fine dining with a view.

The entrance to Connie Mack Island provides a beautiful setting for this remarkable venue. Exotic blooms, towering palms and native wildlife fill the lush grounds surrounding the stately main building. A long, charming veranda is picture-perfect for enjoying the best brunch in Ft. Myers, and the dining is just as wonderful inside. A comfortable lounge completes the elegant atmosphere of this jewel on the water with a full-service bar and menus for afternoons and evenings.

The gracious Lighthouse Waterfront Restaurant serves a wonderful lunch mix of entertaining appetizers, soup and salad combos and delicious sandwiches and burgers. Classic oysters on the half shell, lobster bisque and the turkey Reuben are some local favorites.

Evening starters range from luxurious mussels Bianco to spicy blackened prime rib bites. A crock of rich French onion soup is the perfect prelude to the Lighthouse Waterfront's signature steak and seafood entrees. Their 20-ounce rib eye is a bone-in masterpiece, and a special sherry wine sauce accompanies the broiled Florida lobster tail. The delectable deserts are irresistible; the Lighthouse Key Lime pie and bananas Foster are venerable house traditions.

Fine dining and breathtaking views have long made this lovely location a favorite for special occasions. The experienced staff handles every detail and provides reliable resources for all the extras including music and flowers. From formal sit-down dinners to lavish buffets, arrangements are always custom-tailored to the client's wishes. This stellar restaurant strikes a unique balance between intimate settings and expansive facilities. A dinner for two is quietly romantic, and elegant wedding celebrations are unforgettable.

Wonderful food and a beautiful setting make the Lighthouse Waterfront Restaurant a perfect choice for every occasion.
