WATERFRONT & BEACHFRONT RESTAURANTS in the NAPLES and BONITA SPRINGS AREA

Here it is – all in one place! As much water as we have around here, the opportunities for waterfront dining are limited. There are just a few beachfront restaurants ranging from fancy to a swimsuit-attire-toes-in-the-sand beach bar place. The waterfront restaurants also cover a wide spectrum of cuisine, cost and ambiance. As you scroll down this page, you’ll find the restaurants first separated between the beachfront restaurants and the waterfront restaurants. Keep scrolling and we’ve listed them geographically from north (starting with the top of Hickory Boulevard) to south with the contact information and websites. This list of waterfront & beachfront restaurants is worth gold (or at the very least, worth years of discovery, many vacations to Naples, or a determination to eat out at every restaurant in the Naples and Bonita Springs area).

As time goes on, look for restaurant reviews on all of the beachfront and waterfront restaurants in the area – we’ve been to each and everyone several times over. In the meantime, if you are needing recommendations or want something particular for a special occasion, don’t hesitate to call or text us @ (239) 272-4848 for some local & experienced input. If time allows, you can email at 365ThingsToDoInNaplesFL@gmail.com for words of wisdom when it comes to dining out in Naples or Bonita Springs. Seriously…….we would love to hear from you and we want you to get the very most out of every experience you have in “paradise” whether you are on vacation or a full-time resident.

    GUMBO LIMBO (The Ritz Carlton Hotel, Beachfront Restaurant)

    Looking for a tropical ambiance in a casual/outdoor setting to enjoy a drink & food in Southwest Florida? Gumbo Limbo at the Ritz Carlton Hotel is the answer.
    After a swim & some sun at Vanderbilt beach, me and my husband decided to try this restaurant. A perfect spot just right at the beach to enjoy our tropical drinks (Naples Sunset & Lifeguard Lemonade) and a light lunch of lobster quesadilla & chips & salsa appetizers, and sirloin burger. All of which are well presented, good, tasty & appetizing.
    You will be seated at high top tables with view of the gulf & I imagine spectacular too of the sunset. The service is great, friendly, attentive & relaxed. Absolutely perfect setting with mangroves & pine trees & probably tiki torches burning at night. I would give it a 5 star!
