I've been to Sanibel Grill a few times and it never disappoints! The prices are reasonable, the portions are huge and the place has a nice laid back atmosphere! Try the Thai Shrimp with rice and beans. It's really good!

Sanibel Grill is perhaps one of the best kept secrets on the island. Our dinner on June 9 was nothing short of superb. The portions were most adequate for the cost and the atmosphere was terriffic. And the Chocolate Bread Pudding is indescribable. As good as it all was, the creme dela creme was Roxy. The evening was enhanced by... More

We have been visiting the Sanibel Grill for years now. Roxy was our server tonight and I have to say she was amazing. She was very friendly and attentive. She made our dining experience very pleasurable. When we return we will be requesting Roxy again!!!!

We've been to Sanibel Grill many times in previous vacations - but this year topped them all. Our server, Lexi, was "the Best"! We clicked with her instantly and she responded with top-notch service of a our drinks and meals. Before leaving for home, we decided to return one more time. Lexi was unfortunately not our server, but Hector stepped... More

When I arrive at The Grill, it reminds me of that classic made for TV show, "Cheers"! I feel at home and everyone knows my name...

This is a nice clean well run cafe that offers a wide selection of lunch options. The servers are cheerful and the food arrives at a good measured pace. It's sort of stuck in the corner of a small mall, but once you find it-you will be pleased you did.

We love Timbers but wanted to just be more casual so we went into the bar, sat down and ordered dinner and drinks. Really enjoyed it. Nothing out of the ordinary, but everything was fresh and the service was great.

4 of us showed up late to eat dinner, around 8pm, and were automatically impressed with the atmosphere. Very sporty and a lively feel, with a wide variety of food options. The waitress was a great sport, my brother was obnoxious the entire time. All 4 dinners came out as ordered and were of great quality. Loved the place and... More

A sports bar with fresh seafood, burgers, wings and such. Seafood is great and the other items on the menu are good for the price you pay. Nightly specials.
