Local Musicians

Meet our local entertainment that makes our restaurant awesome!


Originally from Cape Cod Massachusetts, Sherrin began her career as a studio recording artists in the Boston area - recording vocal leads and voice overs for top artists and television commercials. Her live debut at 19 years old was with The Bob Hardwick Sound in New York City playing with Barry Finnerty from the Crusaders and Annie Sutton from 10 Wheel Drive. While working in Philadelphia after college, she kept a hand in the music scene with studio work for T.Life , Jamie Levin, and various writers/producers in the Philadelphia area. Now with roots planted in Southwest Florida, Sherrin has resumed her live performing with a broad spectrum of material from easy listening to blues, rock, country and pop.

High Tide

High Tide is not the typical SWFL cover band. Songs are approached from a different angle not "carbon copied" to sound like the original but made to sound like HighTide. It's geared to be a part of a great SWFL experience; Outdoor dining/drinking/relaxing/dancing/good people enjoying an excellent evening in this tropical paradise of SW Florida!!
Scottee "Marley" on bass guitar & vocals, Danny Shepard on guitar and vocals and Brian Green on Drums. High Tide covers Reggae, Classic Rock, Alternative Rock, R&B, Funk, and Easy Listening. An unusual but refreshing collection of popular music we all grew up on. You never know what we'll play next. The band was formed in late July of 2005 and has risen to be a signature SW Florida experience not to be missed while visiting or just when you need a guarenteed great night out!!!

    Im from Miami and was visiting my mom who just moved to ft myers and wanted to take her to dinner. After driving the coast i didnt see many great looking places. By chance i ran into nervous nellies. A cool place on the water they also have a dolphin cruise right next door. Great for tourist. We were quickly seated outdoor in a great corner. Our waitress was amazing. Very outgoing can tell she enjoys what she does! We ordered a pina colada and a miami vice. She said they had a great bartender and she wasnt lying! They were strong creamy and used great jamaican rum! When it comes to food they have a HUGE menu! Im a seafood lover but i always eat it. I asked for a suggestion and i said i was kind of leaning towards ribs. She quickly exclaimed how amazing they were and again she wasnt lying! I got the full rack...OMG... i couldnt have finished if i wanted to! They really are fall off the bone amaizing ribs! This is now deemed the "go to" place!
