When planning events and gatherings for large numbers of people, everything becomes just a little bit more complicated, and finding somewhere to eat is no exception. Save yourself some time by choosing a restaurant that’s equipped to deal with large parties. These five restaurants are some of the best when it comes to serving groups of 15 or more:

Roy’s (Bonita Springs)

Roy’s has a great selection of Hawaiian fusion cuisine with incredible presentation of all of its dishes. Known for using both foreign and local fish, this sleek, modern chain restaurant is great for a fun night out on the town. The main dining area can accommodate a large party, and there’s another dining room that can be reserved.

The Veranda

Existing inside two houses from the early 1900s, the Veranda is a charming spot to gather with friends, family or business associates. Their menu is part classic southern comfort food and part steakhouse, with excellent options for both. Have dinner in a private room, or hold a reception in its charming garden courtyard.

Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille (Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel, Captiva)

Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille is an awesome spot for gatherings. They have an extensive menu featuring lots of fresh seafood, steak and even raw oysters. You can make your event extra special by reserving a waterfront party room. You can also book your group meal at any one of Doc Ford’s many locations including Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva.


DaRuMa is a Japanese steakhouse and sushi bar that utilizes all of the great fresh fish available in Southwest Florida. Watch as their talented teppanyaki chefs passionately prepare your food and entertain your party.

Blue Pointe Oyster Bar & Seafood Grill (Fort Myers)

Blue Pointe Oyster Bar & Seafood Grill is, as you might expect, a top-notch place to get fresh seafood and raw oysters. Newly renovated with a fresh, modern look, this is an excellent spot to impress your guests.
