The book worm in me loved this restaurant before I even moved to SWFL.. Doc Ford’s was inspired by a character of the same name in Randy Wayne White‘s book series.

And now Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille on Fort Myers Beach has been named by Tripadvisor as the #1 place in the country on its Top Everyday Eats list.

Pretty awesome that the best food in the country is right here in SWFL!!
