Luminary Hotel & Co. is proud to announce the opening of its fifth food and beverage outlet, Oxbow Bar & Grill. Located in what was once known as the City Pier Building (1300 Hendry Street), Oxbow Bar & Grill brings a new experience to downtown Fort Myers’ River District, offering a mix of casual dining and shopping at the Quayside designed to ignite a spirit of waterfront adventure. Oxbow is open daily for lunch and dinner, with brunch on the weekends. Hours of operation are Monday to Wednesday 11 am to 9 pm; Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
âOxbow has taken years to prepare and we are honored to play a pivotal role in realizing the city’s vision for a fully activated waterfront downtown,â said Bob Megazzini, Managing Director of Luminary Hotel & Co. âIn addition to providing an exceptional dining experience, Oxbow will help draw more people to the downtown waterfront by providing private event space, retail and water sports for visitors and locals alike.
With a panoramic view of the Caloosahatchee River, Oxbow presents an upbeat nautical atmosphere that will appeal to avid boaters in the region. Upon arrival, guests will first notice a U-shaped bar covered in naturally aged wood aged in shades of gray, brown, and silver, accented with black footrests and practical purse hooks. The restaurant’s warm interior showcases the elegant use of modern brass lamps, Edison-style light bulbs, stained oak with coppery metal finishes, and antique oars adorning the ceilings. Creamy white walls, subway tiles, and oversized porcelain stoneware floors keep the atmosphere fresh and modern.
Inspired by its unique location on the Caloosahatchee River, the casual 120-seat Oxbow Bar & Grill offers indoor and outdoor seating. Menu selections include fresh oysters and other favorite specialties including fresh seafood, artisan sandwiches, burgers, and steaks. Oxbow’s second floor offers 2,400 square feet of event space with a patio with private access and a catering kitchen, making it perfect for private celebrations or meetings for up to approximately 150 people. Oxbow also captures the wonders of the natural landscape and celebrates urban adventure by offering a destination sportswear, gear, accessories and souvenir retail store provided by St. Petersburg-based Boaters Republic. A water sports outfitter with rental of kayaks and paddleboards will be activated soon.
