Great Happy Hour Menu...read on...

Lovely ambiance and the best Oysters. The Happy Hour Wine is a great value as are the menu choices. Opens at 4:00 pm...arrive early as the place fills up fast. Food is excellent!

This was a cute restaurant with great food, friendly, fast service. The coconut cake is awesome! It's very casual, yet unique.

We did call ahead seating and still had to wait over an hour to get seated! Once seated, we had three young woman standing over us behind our booth, chattering so loudly we could hardly carry a conversation in our group. Then they knocked over their drink that was siting on the wall behind us and it went all over... More

This intimate sports bar is co-located with the Timbers, and like the Timbers (and sister restaurant Matzaluna) is reliable, consistent, and -- for what, after all, is not a neighborhood bar -- very friendly. Sandwiches and entrees are what you would expect, well executed and served promptly...but it is the appetizers and snack-type items that truly stand out. Members of... More

I have eaten and drank more times in this restuarant than anywhere in the world! The Food is always outstanding. The Chowders are superb. The fish (and my favorite is Grouper) is always prepared perfectly. Really Tuna is my favorite but the grouper is a little less expensive. Oysters raw or fried are great. Oysters with Sour cream and Cavier... More

The Sanibel Grill is a great place to go with friends and watch a game on one of the numerous televisions, enjoy the beverage of your choice and yes, even have a good meal. The Crunchy Grouper sandwich has been the draw for us as it is so much better than other what other restaurants call grouper. It is always... More

This is the other side of Timbers and it is also terrific. Stopped in here for dinner and it did not disappoint. The sports bar atmosphere was fun, but the food really stole the show. Mahi Mahi blackened with a mango sauce was superb! We practically licked the plate. Served with equally tasty beans and rice. Wine and beer selections... More

We had a great waiter who was friendly, attentive and helpful. The food was just ok. It is a sports bar w/ lots of tv's and picture memorabilia. The big problem for me was the odor coming from the rag they use to clean tables (you know that smell). They must have kept it close to where we were sitting---ruined... More

Four of us went recently for our first visit...all ordered something different. A shout out to the chef who made scallops wrapped in bacon for my husband even though it isn't on the menu. Thank you. The Buffalo Shrimp was mush. The pizza was marginal. I would not get the pizza again. Our waitress was fantastic. Appears to be more... More

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
