All week you've been sending in your votes on our Fox 4 Facebook page for your favorite restaurants here in Southwest Florida.  We asked you to vote on different categories, like waterfront places, casual dining, and pizza!

And one place that was mentioned in a few lists is the focus of this week's Taste and See Southwest Florida: Miceli’s Restaurant.

Whether it's burgers, pastas, salads, or shrimp, this family-owned restaurant in Matlacha keeps regulars coming back for more with 140 items on the menu, happy hour every day, and mid-week food specials, including 2-for-$25 prime rib dinner every Thursday.

Not to mention live entertainment seven days a week.

“We have tons of local clientele that we all know by name. I mean, it's just that casual a family atmosphere that keeps people coming back.”

If the great food and music aren't enough to entertain you at Miceli's, watching the boats is one thing, getting on a boat is another – for instance Captain Jack's Boat Tours in the backyard of Miceli's.

There are several boat tours you can do from there, like a nature/dolphin tour or sunset tour.

The restaurant has a great location and plenty of parking.
