very nice

This cute little place has a nice menu and good prices. However, it was very disappointing that they didn't have quiche available, which was on the menu.

If you love sports, great food and great service then this is the place for you. Great price, great atmosphere. Will be the first place we visit this year in July.

Check out the Sanibel Grill when in the area. It's a great laid back restaurant where you can enjoy a beer and grouper Reuben sandwich or pizza. Prices are very reasonable.

It was busy but we were seated right away because we would sit at a high top (only two in our party), high top was for four - they seated two people beside us. TV's everywhere! The waitress was friendly, helpful and attentive. The serving size was just right, I ordered the crunchy shrimp which came with fries and slaw.... More

Good service, good crab cakes... We went for lunch after calling and finding out they stop serving at 3:00, we told them we were on our way and offered to order over the phone. They kindly accepted and when we arrived at 3:15 the food came in 5 minutes. Easy going people that I appreciate

Food was good, go early to avoid crowds. Filled with people who seemed to know one another, although they also seemed to be vacationers. Sports bar with lots of games on TVs around the bar.

During our week stay, we visited twice for dinner because we really enjoyed the atmosphere and service. Menu offered traditional "bar" food with a few twists. Surprisingly, the tuna was excellent!!

Wonderful with two ll because you leave FULL! So many yummy and interesting combinations on the menu we had to return twice (in our short stay) to try more! Service was also excellent.

It's clean, friendly and best of all, always good quality and value. The food is uncomplicated but very tasty. The Crunchberry Salad with Shrimp is my personal favourite and hard to beat!

Be warned, even with call ahead seating, the wait will be long. We called ahead a full 30 minutes and still waited an additional 50 minutes. The food was average. I had the grouper sandwich and rate it middle of the road among those on the island. One bright spot was the hostess who made sure we were doing okay... More
