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

My husband and I came here for breakfast one morning and it was delicious! I had the bacon avacado burrito with breakfast potatoes and rye toast. My husband had an omelet, breakfast potatoes, and white toast. The breads were thick and fresh, the coffee was great, the food delicious, and the service fantastic. I would recommend. However, it is pricey... More

I can see why no one comes here to eat. The menu is terrible in so many ways. The menu does not have a lot to choose from. There is nothing on there for kids and when you get your food it is something you don't want to put back in your mouth.

Place is beautiful, modern, very clean, music is delightful. Was attended immediately by a very courteous lady. We ordered two day specials, Mahi on mango salsa and snapper on lemon-butter and cappers sauce. Both came with herb rice and balsamic glazed steamed vegetables. Also, had onion rings appetizer. Everything was exquisite. This restaurant is off on a side road, therefore... More
