Welcome to Groupon, Fort Myers/Cape Coral! For our inaugural deal, $20 gets you $40 worth of fine dining and drinks at The Edison Restaurant & Bar, located next to the Fort Myers Country Club. Since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Fort Myers/Cape Coral: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power."
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (10 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll be emailed a gift certificate the next morning. You can print your Groupons, or redeem them with our mobile app. Use them whenever you want until the deal expires—today's expires in one year. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
Hunger, unlike ambulance sirens, meningitis, and restraining orders, is not something you can safely ignore. Answer the mighty call of a bellowing belly with today's Groupon to The Edison Restaurant & Bar. Inside a venue whose interior features elegant Old Florida architecture and photos of the man who invented light bulbs, phonographs, and the brain-powered jet-ski, The Edison pleases visiting palates with a menu of all-American, home-style cooking. Chew thoughtfully on the flavors of pot roast, prime rib, or meatloaf while watching sports on high-definition television or in high-definition real-life, as the restaurant overlooks the links of Fort Myers Country Club. The restaurant’s three bars provide sufficient libations to keep throats well lubricated for showy sips, quick retorts, or gargled renditions of Edvard Grieg’s In the Hall of the Mountain King.
- LOVELY, MODERATELY PRICED ADDITION TO THE FT. MYERS RESTAURANT SCENE. WE'VE DINED THERE THREE TIMES AND NO DISAPPOINTMWENTS [sic]. FOOD IS BETTER THAN OUR YACHT CLUB AND SERVICE IS QUITE DECENT. – OpenTable reviewer who dined on 9/26/2010
- There are just enough appetizers, soups, salads, and entrées without being overwhelming and the service was outstanding. – OpenTable reviewer who dined on 8/20/2010
The Edison Restaurant & Bar
Outside The Edison Restaurant & Bar, a circular fountain and a thriving, vibrant lawn invite diners to step up to a white-shingled edifice that looks as much like a home as a restaurant. Inside, black brick walls, black-and-white portraiture, and a finished-wood piano bespeak the eatery's elegant yet unpretentious air. Executive chef Stuart Gordon, who has spent time in the Caribbean, the United Kingdom, and Barbados, utilizes years of experience in top restaurants to craft full-flavored dishes. Six dining areas, each with their own ambiance, accommodate private meetings and parties. In the aptly named Chandelier Bar, sports fans can cheer for their team with pints in hand and charbroiled cheeseburger in mouth. And on the terrace bar, patrons can peer across to the Fort Myers Country Club and admire its flourishing palm trees and well-maintained missile defense system.
