We have been going to the Sanibel Grill for a while. We love the atmosphere. The crunchy grouper sandwich is wonderful as is the pizza. Beth's Crunchyberry salad is refreshing. On Fridays they have a lobster dinner that is reasonably priced and very good. They are connected to the Timbers and have a fresh seafood display for take out.

This is an average place on the island, what an Applebee's or Chili's might be- it's not winning any awards, but it's reasonably good and reasonably cheap. It's more like a sports bar/grill, as the name states so you get what you expect. Good for lunch- they do everything good, but nothing great. Hang out and have a grouper sandwich... More

This is a comfortable bar with reasonable prices for average bar food. The crunchy or crispy grouper is actually cornflake crusted and fried, but it does taste good. When most other places seem pricey or too fancy, try this little bar.

We stayed a little too long at the beach and forgot everywhere on the island closes at 8 or 9 pm. This place was a lifesaver as they are open until midnight so we were able to feed our hungry family. The wings, burgers, fries and filet was really good. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable about the menu... More

Best crunchy grouper sandwich on the island - and I've tried it in at least a dozen places! Service always good. Atmosphere and decor friendly, fun and welcoming!

Located right next door to The Timbers, the Sanibel Grill offers fresh bar fare. The food is prepared well, the staff if welcoming and friendly. Probably not best for children but overall we both really love the place.

The food was good and plentiful, good pub type atmosphere, we all enjoyed our dinner! One of our group had steak sandwich which was really tender. Would go again, value for money.

This is usually the first restaurant we stop at when we get to Sanibel and are never disappointed. We like the grouper sandwiches, both crunchy and grilled, the Captiva crab cakes, and New England clam chowder. The servers are friendly and attentive. If we come for dinner, we try to get there before 6 so that we can avoid the... More

We went here twice on our week visit to Sanibel. All four had Crunchberry salads (2 shared) were plenty to eat and absolutley delicious, followed by Big Moose sirloin burgers with sauted onions and bacon. Boy, was that good. Everything was perfectly prepared and the service was excellent/ My wife said the sweet potato fries were the best thing she's... More
