  • This venue is beautiful and Meredith was super responsive to all of my emails and questions. However we wanted to have a beach ceremony more, so we hired another venue (it was a very difficult decision). We’ve also had dinner at Doc’s and the food and service is exceptional! I have NO DOUBT that if we chose them for our wedding, it would have been perfect. If you still want a waterfront wedding and have a smaller guest list, this is the place!

  • Where do we begin?! Doc Ford’s was the perfect place for our wedding. We had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception/dance at Doc’s House and it was perfection. Planning a destination wedding was extremely easy with Meredith’s help. Eric and Jeff were amazing the day of the event, and we truly felt like we could relax! The food and service was excellent (as always), and our guests had a wonderful time. Every single thing went exactly as planned and we are so happy we chose Doc Ford’s!!!

  • We got married at Doc Fords a few weeks ago. We did our cocktail hour & reception there and had our ceremony aboard Salty Sam’s Pirate Ship. This was a perfect combination as the ship was able to pull right up to the docs seamlessly. We fell in love with the Doc Fords event venue as soon as we saw it and have absolutely no regrets. The space is on the water and lights up beautifully at night. Meredith worked with us to get every detail taken care of before the wedding (even coordinating with he pirate ship captain!). We are low key and she made planning easy and painless. She was also super patient with us and answered every single question that came up, even after hours and on days she was off. The team that worked during the event, including Jeff, Eric W, and Reid also did an amazing job. They were attentive to everything our guests could possibly need and very professional. The food also exceeded all our expectations. We went with the Captiva package and couldn’t be happier, t... Read more

  • This was our choice for our rehearsal dinner! Complimented our “destination island” themed wedding weekend. The private venue offered a spectacular view of the bay! Event coordinator Meredith and her staff went above and beyond to make this a truly memorable experience for all. They exceeded our expectation in regards to quantity and quality of food - their attention to detail in the room presentation and decorations - and their friendliness and professionalism - making this night memorable for all! We continue to receive compliments from the wedding party, friends and family !! It was a wonderful kick off for our wedding weekend!!

  • We loved it. The location of Doc Ford's was perfect. We married on the beach 5 minutes away. The view from the room was beautiful. Tge room eas yours all day. They made sure no one parked their boats in front on the dock. The food was excellent. They even remined us if a few items we had forgot. Meredith and Violet were wonderful. They even pack the extra food for my my family to take home. I was lucky. They aloud us to decorate the day before. Because there was no party the day before. Overall everything went great.

  • We choose Doc Ford's for our destination wedding venue and could not have been happier. Everything was perfect. We got married on November 18. The atmosphere and food were fantastic. The staff were so helpful and worked hard to be sure everything went smooth and it did. Meredith and Violet went over and above for us. They helped get the top of our wedding cake back to us in PA and we can't wait to see how it will be on our one year anniversary. A couple of days ago we received a beautiful bouquet of flowers from Doc Ford's wishing us a lifetime of happiness. I highly recommend checking out Doc Ford's for any event. If you do not have an event to plan, check out the restaurant and bar. The mojitos are delicious!

  • Spectacular venue ... We had our daughters wedding here in June. It was a destination wedding ,my daughter Jamie wanted a venue right on water ,where she could arrive by boat. Doc Fords was perfect, sits right on back bay with own private dock. Venue has all glass sliders that give you amazing views of bay . Meredith & Violet was outstanding to work with. The food was exceptional ,from hors d'oeovres Yucatan shrimp, spring rolls, coconut chicken ,etc to the prime rib,chicken piccata & fish w crab stuffing all was outstanding. The bartenders Adam & Jeff were phenomenal !!!! Our family and friends all came from Rhode island & CT and had a wonderful time and so many compliments on Doc Fords . Thank you again to everyone at Doc Ford's, And extra special thanks to Meredith ,Violet, Adam ,& Jeff for making our special day extraordinary . Jodi & Jim 6/24/17

  • While we ultimately did not have our reception here, I have to commend Doc Ford's for having such excellent event staff and planners. I had responses in record time and they were willing to go above and beyond to accommodate our reception. (Unfortunately June in Florida is just too hot for some people to be outside!) This would also make for an ideal venue for a rehearsal dinner or just a great spot for out of town guests. A fun place to visit on Ft. Myers Beach!

  • A month ago this week, we got married and had our reception at Doc Fords. From the very first contact with Violet and the staff members, the planning process was a breeze! The day of was just as easy. The food was TO DIE FOR! Violet and Eric went above and beyond to take care of us and our guests. If we could do it all over again, we wouldn't change a single thing. Thank you Violet, Eric and the rest of the DF staff for making our reception a night to remember!

  • When planning our destination wedding we knew we wanted to have a reception in a unique location. Doc Ford's was an easy decision. Being right on the bay with the marina right there was beautiful and the indoor/outdoor space had so much character we really didn't need to add much decor to make it feel special. Meredith was so amazing to work with, the process could not have been easier! She made sure to take down all of our specific notes and pass them onto her amazing staff so we wouldn't need to worry about a thing. All we had to do was drop off our items and they set everything up for us. Aside from the space and great people to work with the food was insane. All of our guests were blown away by how delicious everything was. Just another perk of having your reception at a restaurant and not a stereotypical banquet space. The night of the reception everything was flawless. Meredith was even there making sure every aspect was taken care of and going well. I could go on forever so bott... Read more
