Read what the guests of Doc Ford’s Sanibel have to say!

“Just want to thank you for making our visit an exceptional one…my husband is a rabid reader of all things Randy, and he could not WAIT to get to the restaurant to take some photos and send them home to friends who read Randy. But most of all I LOVED the Quinoa Salad – like nothing I have ever tasted. Thank you!  P.S. We had cocktails in Fort Myers Beach and then dined in Sanibel. It was fun!”  ~ Becky

“I just wanted to contact you and compliment you on outstanding cuisine and service during my family trip to your Island recently.  We enjoyed the atmosphere and our dining experience.  During my University experience as a Law Professor, many students just referred to me as “Doc” Ford.  I will recommend your establishment to others. Thank You .”  ~ “Doc” Ford

“I just wanted to let you know that my boyfriend discovered your rum bar and grille through reading Randy’s books and planned our vacation (2 yrs ago) to Florida to make sure we checked it out.  He still proudly wears the t-shirt he bought there and tells everyone about it.  Someday I hope he gets to meet Randy White as that would be a great thrill for him.  Keep the rum flowing!” ~ Cindy

“This note is a little late but sincere non-the-less.  I want to say how much my family and I enjoy Doc Ford’s.  We have been regular customers when on vacation since you opened but this year was especially good.  On one of our visits this year one of your staff, (I apologize for not getting his name), stopped us and asked if we had been in recently.  I had the pleasure of telling him that Doc Ford’s is my favorate place to eat on the island and go as often as possible while on our annual vacation.  I know you have a great deal of people that come and go so it was quite impressive to have someone take the time to chat with with us and even gave me can cozy. The food and service are always great but thanks for taking the extra time with us.  Back here in K.C. I always recommend Doc Ford’s to anyone headed to southwest Florida. Thank you again and see you all next year.” ~ Steve S.

“We want to thank you for the great food, kind and courteous employees and the phenomenal hospitality. You made us feel right at home.”  ~ Karl Schuessler and  Tim Eagleburger

“I rarely get excited about a dining experience in this current economy let alone write to/about one. However I wanted to let you know how bowled over my family and I were about our lunch experience at your restaurant yesterday, July 22nd. We were a party of 6, including two children. We found the decor and floor plan inviting. We were also truly impressed with the quality, variety, taste and presentation of the food as well as the friendliness of the staff that we haven’t stopped talking about it. Finally there is a place that offers EXCELLENT food at GREAT PRICES. Please keep doing what you are doing and we look forward to our next trip over from Ft. Lauderdale to Sanibel so that we can visit your restaurant again. Thanks and you can be sure that we will be telling our friends about your place.”  ~ B.G.

“Thanks for a great  2 weeks. You all are the best. The best staff, food, drinks and people. See you next time.. The wedding party was the best.”  ~ Don Dunn and the Gang –  Auburn, AL

“What a wonderful surprise to find Doc Ford’s! In all our travels (Scottsdale, San Diego, etc.), I don’t think that I have had such a wonderful meal. The flavors and combinations of ingredients were just outstanding. Thank you for a wonderful expereince – I would love to see one in Baltimore. Your menu is truely unique, every item is better than the next (we went 2 times in our 4 day vist and wish we would have visited more!)”

“I was recently on vacation in Sanibel and stopped by your resturant. The food was great, thanks! And our waiter Shawn was very nice. I hope to stop by on our next visit.”

“Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated our evening at Doc Ford’s!  The food was great, nice atmosphere and the service was excellent! We couldn’t have found a better location to have our rehearsal dinner.  Thank you again for all of your help in the process!”
