We visited the Sanibel Grill twice this week. We enjoyed it very much the first time, my husband ordered the Grouper sandwich and thought it was very good. I had the crab bisque which was EXCELLENT! Our girls shared the pizza. We also ordered the wings with Thai chili sauce--also very good. Our waitress was friendly-overall a great experience. We... More

We went to Sanibel Grill for dinner while on vacation and were extremely disappointed in the service! The waitress was not pleasant to begin with, then when our food came out, my fiance's order was wrong... The waitress proceeded to argue with us about the order rather than fixing it. She did not come back to refill our drinks through... More

We've been to Sanibel Grill several times over the years that we have vacationed in Sanibel. The most recent was for dinner on a Tuesday night. This sports bar is usually crowded and this night was no different as the US was playing in the World Cup. There were many fans on hand to watch the game. We were seated... More

The ambiance at the Sanibel grill is casual, but very nice, Our server, Coquina (hope that's her real name!) was great. She was cheerful, attentive and prompt! I had the grouper bites as an appetizer and they were delicious. My entree (BBQ ribs) was ok, but nothing special. They tasted like the ribs I make at home in the crock... More

We always love the Sanibel Grill on our frequent trips to the island. We were hoping to see Audrey behind the bar as we enjoy sitting there and she is absolutely a delight. Today the bar was quite full and when we asked Bobby if there might be space for 2, he was incredibly rude and condescending. Guess we were... More

Have been going to the Grill for 20 years and will continue to do so. Usually eat at the bar, and we are always pleased w/our choices. It is reasonably priced, the staff is pleasant and friendly--what more could one ask.

The food was very good. We had apps, entree and desserts. Kids menu choices were good, and food was cooked fresh. Would visit again.

Our family went out for an early dinner and chose the Sanibel Grill. Based upon their name, we were expecting more of a restaurant atmosphere when we walked in. I think the name Sanibel Bar & Grill would better describe this establishment. They have a large bar in the middle with a lot of bar seating and multiple TV screens... More
