Doc Ford's Is Supporter of FISH
Doc Ford's Rum Bar & Grille has been serving hungry guests for 16 years at its original location on Sanibel Island – a community which it supports in many ways like the 10K Race 4 F.I.S.H. A race in which a staff team of 25 to 30 runners participated as the Doc Ford’s Rum Runners.
“We are proud to be a supporter of an organization that helps not only our local families, but those visiting the islands,” said Doc Ford's General Manager Kim McGonnell. “It’s an event our employees throughout the company look forward to every year. It’s fun for us and a great way to show our support for the community.”
The popular eatery is named for the hero of noted Sanibel author Randy Wayne White's novels, adventurous scientist Doc Ford. Diners will be delighted by the flavorful dishes inspired by the author's travels to such places as Cuba, Cambodia and South Africa, as well as South and Central America.
If there is room for dessert, the Drunken Parrot Carrot Cake is homemade and spiked with a hint of Gossling's Black Seal Rum. It is the specialty and a perfect way to end a delectable meal.
Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille has three locations serving fresh, local seafood and ingredients: Sanibel, 2500 Island Inn Rd.; Fort Myers Beach, 708 Fishermans Wharf; and Captiva, 5400 South Seas Plantation Rd. Just as White’s novels were inspired by the places he visited, the spirit of the rum bars are inspired by the main character in those novels.
