With 3 locations along Southwest Florida’s Gulf of Mexico, a trip to the islands isn’t complete without a stop by Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille, just ask the locals. Come cool off and enjoy one of our signature island mojitos, or watch the game with friends & family.  If Ft. Myers Beach waterfront dining or outdoor patio seating is what you’re into, Doc Ford’s has you covered.
