I came for lunch and drinks to celebrate Veterans Day, and I was very disappointed with the service at the tiki bar ! The bartender was rude and spent most of her time on her phone. We almost felt as if we were putting her out !!! I have visited the tiki bar in the past and have always had... More

Although this is located at the Holiday Inn Resort, it is open to the public and advertise a nice happy hour with a view. When on Sanibel, you always want a water view so we checked it out. Bartender Dave had a great personality and we chatted with several locals...which is always a good sign...while overlooking the pool and the... More

Arrived late to the hotel and tired from traveling all day. The restaurant was on site and the staff and food excellent.

We found this place through our motel staff. We went during the week so it was not crowded. This place is a real find for atmosphere! Seemingly endless wood and mirrors make it look huge. The server Karen made it a special night she was so attentive. I tried the Red Snapper with rice and veggies and it turned out... More

We stayed at the hotel so on our last day thought it would be convenient not to have to drive anywhere for breakfast. We should have driven somewhere else. The food was not good at all.

We just had a 90th Birthday Party/Family Reunion at the Sanibel Inn. The Sea Star is the restaurant on the property and what a great bunch of people. Marilu Gagnier and Chef RoRo were so kind and did such a professional job of setting up our celebration! We had 21 people including young and old and they treated us like... More

The service here can't be beat. Both nights we ate here the servers were awesome. The food, it's okay, nothing really to write home about but with some of the dishes it seems the chef does what he can with what he has to work with. I think if some better quality steaks and fish were sourced they could really... More

It was ok. I had the snapper special which is depicted in the photo gallery. Salty snapper thanks to overdoing with it with capers, then add rice from a box and steamed, limp, bland boring broccoli. $22 for a pretty average dish.

Had breakfast there while staying at the resort. Beautiful dining room, friendly staff. While the menu is small you will find all the favorite breakfast dishes. Mine was prepared to perfection and reasonably priced.

My husband and I had dinner here last week. I was a little nervous when we 1st walked in because no one else was there. But I was quickly greated by a very nice waitress. And the food was delicious. I highly recommend the Shrimp Po'Boy! My only comment is the menu could use a little more variety. Maybe a... More
