Swordfish Grill & Tiki in Cortez, Florida Taking Care of Staff & the Community

| Laura Bell Adams |

One of the most popular restaurants in our area, the Swordfish Grill & Tiki is doing everything possible to make sure their employees are taken care of and also serve the community.

We spoke with General Manager Bob Slicker, a well-known Cortez resident. Forced to close and only do to-go / pick-up orders, Bob and his team have certainly come up with some innovative ideas. Watch the video!



Bob wanted to let us know that “all of his employees are still receiving a salary and we will do so as long as we possibly can.”



When you purchase a gift certificate online at, 50% goes to an employee fund where they can also purchase food from the Swordfish for FREE. In one case they helped with a rent payment and another they helped with a car payment. So, every gift certificate that you make on-line is doing something wonderful. You are helping folks who are out of work!

And more! You can now go to the Swordfish website and not only purchase food-to-go, but you can now buy groceries. Bob & his team want you to stay home and just come out when you absolutely have to. Some of the grocery items that you can purchase online are milk, eggs, bread, fruit, fresh vegetables, toilet paper (you get a roll free with an on-line purchase), deli meats, cheeses, dairy products, bait, ice, chicken, seafood, fish and more. Again, go on-line to

Bob wanted to mention that while many restaurants have closed, he will keep the “Swordfish” open to serve the community and his team.
