Our Favorite Things About Sunset Beach Grill
During World War II, the original Sunset Beach Grill and Playmor Tiki Bar was built behind the beach school. It served its first years as a lunchroom and spare classroom. In 1948, the school closed down, leaving a vacant building with a stunning view right beside the beach. In the early 1950’s, the lonely venue was transformed into The Playmore, the first and only public hangout spot for adults on the beach.
Since then, the restaurant has boomed in popularity and received a new name. Visitors all over the beach flock to the eatery for its tasty food, relaxed atmosphere, and a phenomenal view of the beach and Fort Myers Pier.
Open for lunch and dinner, Sunset Beach Grill offers beach-goer favorites such as mouthwatering fish sandwiches, juicy burgers, tropical salads, and even bacon-wrapped shrimp! Here are just a few of the Chef’s Favorites from their succulent menu:
Full Moon Fish Fry – A whopper yellow snapper deep-fried and served on a bed of mashed potatoes. Vegetables and chimichurri come on the side.
Sun-Sational Scallops – Seared and served with a citrus beurre blanc, Jasmine rice, and brussel sprouts.
Lounging Lobster Tail – Broiled Atlantic lobster tail served with all the butter you desire for your double-dipping pleasure.
