We stopped for lunch here when we visited Sanibel/Captiva. We were the only patrons for a half hour or so, but we were not waited on for about 20 minutes. Our food came to the table about one half hour after ordering. The food was good, but the service slow.

We thought this would be great but we're all thoroughly disappointed! The clam chowder was watery and the clams were tough. The pappardelle was too floury and Not fresh. The Bouillabaisse their "signature" dish was also watery and tasteless. The grouper was well prepared, bit the topping was Not crispy and the vegetables accompanying the meal were mostly onions and... More

We stopped in for a late lunch at this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised, as the food was delicious. The server was friendly, as well. I highly recommend this establishment for a tasty meal and pleasing environment.

Food and service was consistently great! Owner visited with us and was very pleasant. Small restaurant, but food was wonderful! Visited a lot of restaurants in Sanibel and Captiva, this was the BEST! We actually visisted in 2013, but it was so good that I wanted to make sure we provided a review.

We visit Sanibel once a year, usually January. The Greenhouse Grill is our favorite restaurant, and we look forward to our visit there. Here's the update for 2015: We were on a tighter schedule this year, with several must-attend events, so we just got in one visit, and had to cancel our reservations for a second when we were delayed...

Greenhouse Grill our #1 favorite restaurant on Sanibel. We have been coming to Sanibel for more than 20 years and this is the best. You can order from the lunch or dinner menu all day. One day we requested a pasta dish they didn't carry on their menu but made it for us. The atmost here and service is superior.... More

We ate lunch at the Greenhouse Grill while on vacation. Our lunch consisted of a grilled chicken sandwich and a ruben, our boys had a hamberger with homemade french fries. Everything was made to perfection... our boys said the fries were the best they have ever had. Will be back next year when we return to Sanibel.

This is my first negative review on Trip Advisor. In the spirit of community, here it goes: I'll call it overpriced Italian, but not better than cafeteria food. The portions were small. Our side orders of vegetables seemed to have been sitting around awhile overcooked and limp. My daughter's lobster dish was drenched in sauce as were the other dishes.

My wife and I have frequented this restaurant for many years. Every dish is good. Shrimp Bruschetta has always been my favorite ! Specials are always SPECIAL. Just had the Artichoke Ravioli special. O my God ! The lady had the pork shank. Terrific and took 1/2 home. Nice and easy service. I recommend this place to everyone.

The food was great, and the service was better. Expensive, but I don't mind paying when it was as great as this was.
