We ate there as a family of 7 and enjoyed every bite! The shrimp was out of this world and so was the grouper!! The atmosphere is beyond belief! I have absolutely no idea how long we waited for a table because we were so preoccupied with the celebrity photos that cover - literally - every square inch of this... More

I asked TA for advice on where to watch the Sunday play-offs, and this was one of the places mentioned...so off we went. I was hoping for a place not too raucous, not too fancy, with good food. Here it is!!! Enthusiastic fans and wall to wall tvs made it great for the game, but the food and drink specials... More

Every time we come to Florida and are near Sanibel Island, we eat at least once at the Sanibel Grill. The Crunchy Shimp and Grouper are excellent and the staff is very friendly. Prices are very reasonable and you get more than you can eat!

It seems its one of the latest places open on the island for food and drinks-seems old timey and dark inside but large enough for groups and comfortable. Hamburger platter special was great as were the special drinks we also tried. Service at the bar was average only because the male server seemed more apt to carry on conversation with... More

I have eaten at the Grill (the Timbers Bar) many times, and I have never had a bad meal. Everything is good, and the atmosphere is friendly. This is my favorite place to eat. Recommended.

We ate here twice during our visit to Sanibel and both times were great. Seems like a lot of locals go here. We were able to watch football playoffs on our second visit and the place was packed - lots of fun! Everything we ate was great, service was excellent- we'll be back!

Great place to go on Sunday in the fall. NFL Sunday ticket is offered on about 15 TVs. Limited beer options but good bar food.

We were told there would be a 30 minute wait, ordered appetizers at the bar and in 5 minutes a table was ready! Grouper bites were excellent as was lobster for $19.99. Grouper sandwiches were ok. Service was less than attentive.

A great place for a casual meal menu varied and tasty Singapore style noodles and sweet chilly prawns for example. Full of locals as evidenced by the waiting staff having quite long chats with some punters who they obviously know well. Still who is in a hurry on Sanibel. Was the only busy place visited on this trip everywhere else... More

Sanibel Grill is a low key, watch the game kind of place. The food is very, very good and the prices are super reasonable. We celebrated a birthday there for dinner one night and all the food was well prepared and tasty. The prime rib special was great as was all the food we ordered. Service was good and the... More
