The Cottage Bar and Grill is located right on Fort Myers Beach and has been a Fort Myers Beach favorite for ages. The two story building looks like a cottage. There is an upstairs bar and restaurant and a beach bar located on the beach level.  The Cottage has everything a Florida beach bar lover could want which makes this a Top 10 Florida Beach Bar for 2011.

Dine and drink anytime at the upstairs bar and grill and enjoy panoramic Gulf views. If you prefer sinking your toes in the sand, try the ground level open air beach bar from 11:00 AM ‘till sunset. This little beach bar is so perfect for those who love to spend the day at the beach.

The Cottage’s full menu includes everything from Garlic Crab Claws to the Cottage’s Famous Beach Bread. Live bands play every night from 9:00 PM to 1:00 AM.   We have always had a lot of fun at The Cottage and that is because everyone else there is having fun. 

One night a group of us had a fabulously fun time there dancing and singing along with the band. Yes, I think we were doing shots. Everyone was asking everyone else to dance in the whole place. Memories were made and good times were had. This is just part of the Florida beach bar fun, especially at The Cottage.

The Cottage has everything a Florida beach bar lover could want and that is why it was a top 10 Florida Beach Bar in 2011. 

This is a good place for locals and tourists alike. The upstairs bar has that Old Florida feel to it and the bartenders are nice. I especially like this bar for it being the ONLY bar in Ft Myers Beach that was open immediately after Hurricane Charley. It was a welcome place to be after the storm. Excellent view of the gulf.
