Do you love dining out but hate the prices? Me too, friend, me too. As a foodie who is also budget savvy, I have a hard time dining out when there isn’t a deal available. That’s why I’m a huge fan of Sizzle SWFL Restaurant Week, the official restaurant week of Naples and all of SWFL.

Why I Love Dining Out During Restaurant Week

Restaurant week is an event where local restaurants offer reduced or fixed price menus. It’s a great way for customers to try new places without spending a ton of money. Restaurant week isn’t confined to Naples, FL! Nope, many cities around the nation offer similar events. In fact, I’ve even written about Orlando Restaurant Week before. I feel so passionate about these dining deals that I want everyone in every city to learn how to find one where they live. Go ahead and Google “your town restaurant week” to find one near you.

If you live in SWFL you’ll be happy to read all about our local SWFL Restaurant Week.

What is Sizzle SWFL Restaurant Week?

Sizzle SWFL Restaurant Week is a 14 day semi-annual, charity driven event that gives locals (and visitors) the chance to channel their inner foodie and try all the restaurant on their wish list. It spans from Cape Coral to Marco Island and everywhere tasty in-between!

Restaurants offer specially crafted, two course lunch and/or a three course dinner with fixed price menus, starting at just $16 or $21 for lunch and $26 or $36 for dinner.  

The event allows people to try multiple restaurants that may normally be out of their price range and will send diners on a tasting tour throughout Collier & Lee Counties. Participating restaurants are not only known for their exceptional cuisine, they also spare no expense to give Restaurant Week diners an extraordinary culinary experience.

One thing I love about SWFL Restaurant Week is that $1 from each meal goes to a scholarship called the Sizzle SWFL FGCU Food and Beverage Scholarship at Florida Gulf Coast University. I love getting a good deal and helping my community!

The Sizzle SWFL Restaurant Week event celebrates dining out at an affordable price and is produced to build awareness and make a positive impact on our diverse Southwest Florida culinary community.

Restaurant Week showcases, and also strengthens our local destination’s brand and culinary reputation. Attracting tourists to the area increases business for hotels, shopping centers, entertainment and other local businesses. Everyone benefits from the impact of the tourism dollars spent in the area and all the restaurants that participate see increased traffic during the event.

The overall goal of Sizzle SWFL Restaurant Week is to encourage people to visit the best local restaurants during a normally slow time of year and help expose people from Collier, Lee and surrounding counties to our amazing Southwest Florida restaurants!
