If you’re hungry for steak — and not just any steak, but top-grade certified Angus beef cooked to perfection — then you must visit the Courtside Steakhouse at Sanibel Harbour Resort.
Courtside Steakhouse - Fort Myers, FL

Ok, so I realize that I’m supposed to be showcasing our favorite restaurants in Fort Myers Beach and Bonita Springs. But I absolutely insisted that we include this restaurant in Fort Myers because of the mouthwatering steak! It’s to die for, seriously.
Courtside Steakhouse offers a wide selection of favorite menu items like lump crab cakes, Caesar salad, and onion soup. You can order your steak by classic cut, if you prefer — there’s the filet mignon, the N.Y. strip, and the bone-in ribeye. Or, try one of the specialty steak options, like steak Oscar (a halved filet with jumbo lump crab and asparagus, drizzled with a Bernaise sauce) or steak Diane (a halved filet covered with sautéed shallots, shitake mushrooms, and a cabernet demi-glace).
On the side, we especially like the caramelized Brussels sprouts or truffled creamed corn, and you can choose a wine to pair with your meal from the restaurant’s 1,200-bottle cellar. For dessert, we love the bananas foster or classic cheesecake, as well as the selection of specialty coffees.
As mentioned earlier, the resort is located in Fort Myers on the way to Sanibel Island, just before you reach the Causeway. It’s about a 30 minute drive from Fort Myers Beach, depending on the time of year and where you’re located on the beach. But it’s well worth the drive!
The restaurant’s atmosphere is very modern, with sleek chairs and elegant table settings, and the panoramic windows overlook a stunning landscape of native vegetation. Dress is casual, despite the fine dining. Ladies will feel most comfortable in a nice sundress or blouse and slacks, and men will be fine in a pressed shirt and nice pants. No need for jacket and tie. Courtyard Steakhouse is located at:
17260 Harbour Pointe Drive
Fort Myers, Florida 33908
