Chose to eat here our first night in Sanibel based on TA reviews but ended up very disappointed. Should have been clued in when there were few diners on a Saturday night at 6:30. Waiter was unimpressive - didn't seem too interested in his job. He disappeared for long periods of time and wasn't available to refill water glasses, etc.... More

The grounds are beautiful and feel free to walk them after lunch. We bike to this location as we have found the lunch options to be varied and delicious. Outside seating is best and it can get busy in high season. the key is to relax and plan to enjoy the view while you wait for each phase of you... More

The grill offers a delicious and typical Sanibel menu. The caesar salad and risotto were yummy! If the weather is nice make a reservation to sit out on the patio.

We have eaten here a few times over the years and had decent service and good food but not this time. We waited a good 10 minutes after we were seated for our waitress to come to us. She apologized saying she was serving out on the patio. But the service did not get better. The food was okay, served... More

Five stars! Splendid food and fine service. This quiet spot is one of the best, if not the outright best, on Sanibel. Get a table on the porch just about sunset, framed by the palms. Memorable. Well done!

This is a smaller restaurant where you receive a more personal service. The food was really good and I would definitely come back the next time we come to Sanibel. The restaurant is quiet which I definitely prefer over the usual noisy restaurants that you find everywhere in the US.

When you combine great food and wonderful service, it's a winning combination. Our family greatly enjoyed our lunch. We had muscles, grouper, and calamari. Even the kids meal our daughter had was high quality chicken.

We had the pleasure of eating once again at the Greenhouse Grill while on vacation recently in Sanibel. Our waitress, Christine made our dinner very enjoyable. She provided us with exceptional service and knowledge of the menu. My husband and I will most definitely return as guests to the restaurant next visit to Sanibel.
