Bonita Beach Balloon Bar & Grill opens in Bonita Springs

Bonita Beach Road is home to a new restaurant – Bonita Beach Balloon Bar & Grill. The restaurant will serve lunch and dinner every day of the week, and recently celebrated its ribbon cutting with the Bonita Springs Area Chamber of Commerce. It is located at 9070 Bonita Beach Road in Sunshine Plaza.

The “Cheers-style” bar and grill is owned by Jim and Linda Werkheiser, a married couple who recently moved to the area to retire. The Werkheisers saw the opportunity to open a bar and grill for locals to call home, and purchased an existing pub to renovate.

Bonita Beach Balloon Bar & Grill is open Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. Learn more at or call (239) 676-8178.
