Christmas day restaurants open in Fort Myers? Bonita? Naples?

Husband and I are flying in early Christmas day to place on Pine Island. I am sure that not much is open, I may be getting creative with the rice left in cabinet from this summer. Is anyone aware of a restaurant open in fort myers, or nearby which is serving dinner on christmas day?

  1. Open Table shows 18 of their 44 listed restaurants open. The big resorts would be open. Not sure about the others. The Edison in Fort Myers is closest for your purposes, but it really kind of nothing. Indifferent food at best. There must be something in the Cape, but I am not familiar with most of their restaurants. I'm thinking some of the places at Cape Harbour should be open.
