Street Eatz & Ale is located at 5508 Avenue A on Pine Island. Built in 1953 the building, an old Florida structure, has been an iconic location with lots of history and was one of the first pieces of commercial property on the island.
From the mid 80s, the location was your typical island dive bar, named the Cozy Corner. Stories from the locals says the bar was known for its rowdy fights. In 2015, El Pollo Rico brought life back to the corner of Avenue A. Owned and operated by Mike and Morgan Miceli, they overhauled the once abandoned structure serving the community for years.
After Hurricane Ian destroyed so many lives and businesses, Chef Reid Freeman brought his menu from Fort Myers Beach to Pine Island. Bringing his love of old Florida, ice cold beers, and simple food, Reid with Street Eatz & Ale will continue one mans dream of keeping life simple. "Eat local, keep it simple"
We’re looking forward to seeing you at Street Eatz & Ale on Pine Island.
MENU & PRICINGS
SUBJECT TO CHANGE
Since graduating from Le Cordon Bleu, Chef Reid Freeman has been working at his family's restaurant on Fort Myers Beach. Where he served his delicious food for years. In 2022, Hurricane Ian blew thru SWFL taking with it memories, buildings, homes, and so much more.
Taking the cards we are dealt, as a true Florida native, we pick ourselves up, dust off the sand, and move forward. Rising from the dirt, Street Eatz & Alewas born. Landing on a quiet, old Florida island, Reid with his wife, Natasha found a hidden gem. Pine Island is everything one would want. Old Florida, palm trees, slower pace.
Reids vision of keeping life simple and ice cold beers is the driving force behind Street Eatz.
In the beginning, Chef Reid is used his food truck to serve his fresh food. Starting in July 2023, the kitchen opened inside the building. Serving Chefs delicious menu Tuesday thru Saturdays.
On Sundays, Street Eatz & Ale will be serving up their normal bar menu with ice cold beers and air conditioning while having other local food trucks serve a variety of their foods.
Drink Local, Eat Local, Keep it Simple - Chef Reid
We enjoyed a lovely Sunday afternoon Al fresco enjoying the newly opened ‘Eatz‘. The beer was icy cold and a not to be missed grouper sandwich were great! Owners Reed and Natasha are excellent hosts in this laid back little oasis.

What a wonderful new addition to the island! The food was amazing! Started with pimento cheese and crab dip and the group had smashed burger, grouper sandwich, and southern cuban. All were delicious, cooked to perfection with quality ingredients. The owners and staff inside were so friendly. Can’t wait to go back.
