“Great place to watch a sunset or take in happy hour specials. Also, the Boat House is adjacent to the yacht club and Cape Coral Beach. Fun and friendly atmosphere and sometimes they have single guitar solo musicians.”

“Always voted the #1 Nightclub/Bar in all of SWFL! Open until 3am on the weekends! Dixie Roadhouse is a country-themed "party bar" for a 21+ crowd. Early in the evening, the concept relies on nearly 100% country music and features "Free & Easy" dance lessons. Once the lessons and practices are over, Dixie Roadhouse begins a transformation in the music format that includes rock, retro, dance, Top-40, and country. We only play "the best of the best" in each music genre. All of the music is fun, upbeat, comfortable, and instantly recognizable. Ice cold beer, exceptional sound and lights, and an awesome staff make this the best party in the area by far.”
