Point 57 Kitchen & Cocktails - 3522 Del Prado Blvd S, Cape Coral, FL is gearing up for the new season with new menu items, including appetizers, salads, entrees, and desserts, which were released on the restaurant's Facebook page in late October.

Additionally, some new additions to Point 57's craft cocktail menu are forthcoming, as well as happy hour specials.

Point 57 is a scratch kitchen restaurant that focuses on homemade Southern inspired cuisine, sourced locally. "Fresh ingredients set us apart from everyone else!" their Facebook page says. "We take pride in providing our guests with amazing dishes and exceptional service. We here at Point 57 would like to thank our SWFL community for your continued love & support, especially during these recent hard times!"

The restaurant, categorized as a gastropub, focuses on small plates—mainly simple steaks, burgers, and seafood—paired with local ingredients. They also pride themselves on their extensive craft drink selection with house-made infused flavors, wine list, and local craft beer selections.
