Leapin Lizard is a Cape Coral restaurant and bar, with live music and good food in a Florida beach-joint setting.
UPDATE MARCH 2013: Leapin Lizard is now Fords Garage, a burger and beer sports bar and restaurant.
I always wanted to try this bar and grill because it is one of the first places you see when you come over the Cape Coral Bridge from Ft Myers.
You can't miss it, the building is painted in bright colors, with lizards all over it, and open walls.
An outdoor porch has tables for diners circling around the bar, which has plenty of stools and beachy paraphanalia hanging all over the place.
The restaurant seems to be popular with bikers .............. and a crowd of locals.
The front bar area is where all the action is, bands play in a corner and there's space for dancing.
There is also an indoor dining room and if you're bringing children, you will probably want to eat inside because there are lots of regulars partying it up in the outside bar area.
We really enjoyed the band which played country and rock music, but if you are looking to have intimate conversation during dinner ....... well, that's another reason to sit inside.
The food was pretty good, but because the walls are open, there were lots of flies, a problem that may be encountered when eating outside anywhere ..... but some places are worse than others maybe and something to consider.
There is a huge selection of appetizers, steaks and seafood, Mexican dishes, sandwiches, flat bread pizzas, salads, fried-food baskets, ribs, and a raw bar.
You will also find a kid's menu and a few dessert selections.
I had a delicious Surf and Turf with scalloped potatoes and Nicole had the chicken tenders basket, both very good.
There's plenty of parking. Looking for fun and rowdy dining experience, then go to the Lizard, Cape Coral bar and restaurant.
