Red Robin at Tyrone Square Mall

First time at a Red Robin, this is the only one I’ve seen in Pinellas County. It’s a combination of gourmet burger joint and sports bar. Since it’s one of the fast-casual chains in trouble it was interesting to visit.

Opted for one of their four $6.99 burger specials, the sriracha burger and unlimited fries, which arrived in about five minutes. Huge tasty burger was quite filling, and with the fries I got it was plenty for me. No more fries, thanks.

All of several TV screens on ESPN, rock music was a bit loud. Two lady servers as I came in, one asks if table or booth, a booth please. Another takes my order, then twice came by asking if all was well. My glass was not re-filled, my only service complaint. They have a few other items besides burgers.

Discovered this gem while walking around Downtown Fort Myers. Excellent service by pleasant ladies. Television overhead while sitting in huge lounge chairs or choose a table along the walls. Ordered iced green tea and oatmeal with bananas and cream plus a bagel with cream cheese, nine bucks total.

Iced green tea in a glass jar with handle, then rest of order appears in a few minutes. Huge paintings for sale by local artists adorn walls, plus vertical glass and wood case containing antiques on one wall. People reading books or on their laptop welcome.

Directly across from government building and next door to antique shop. Street parking only in this walker-friendly area of narrow streets. One of the nicest restaurant I have found, will be back.

Gwendolyn’s Cafe 2400 1st St Fort Myers, FL 33901

Stopped for lunch recently, a pleasant friendly place where they tell you to sit anywhere. Ordered a tuna sandwich with french fries, and got so many fries I could not eat them all.
Tasty dish appeared in less than five minutes.

Only two people there when I arrived, then a few more came in. The lunch rush was over by then. Next door to the Fort Myers Public Library courtyard, right downtown so really convenient. On the ground floor of an office building with only street parking.

Will probably be back
