Yucatan Beach stand, fort myers beach, biz buzzThe Kolar family has brought creative Island design to Fort Myers Beach for years at the Yucatan Beach Stand Bar & Grill and The Lighthouse Resorts Inn & Suites & Tiki Bar. Most recently, the Yucatan announced expansion with an outdoor garden patio and bar. With a bubbling fountain, mature landscaping including bamboo and palm trees, the atmosphere is 100% Island. Guests will also enjoy an outdoor bar with rope suspended seating. “With an exceedingly long wait time at the Yucatan and a desire for a more intimate Island experience,” Tommy Kolar said, “my father and I put our heads together. We think it turned out to be a truly amazing setting. The result will be faster service and a unique and intimate Island dining experience.” The Yucatan specializes in casual island fare including seafood, sandwiches, appetizers, homemade desserts and the coldest beer on the beach. Live music every afternoon.
