Bummed

Well this was a bummer. Lots of great reviews and we were excited for some great food. Unfortunately, the food was not prepared as ordered (they forgot toppings, etc), and when nicely asked to simply add ketchup and mayo to a burger, they seemed off put. They even handed me mustard after that... read more

The Sanibel Deli is the go to place for take-out or eat in meals when you want simple, well prepared food at reasonable prices. Many locals go there frequently for breakfast or lunch. The homemade soups are really great and the freshly prepared sandwiches are very tasty as well. There are baked goods, salads, quiche, ice cream and lots of... More

This place does GF right! Found this place searching for GF options, and popped in to talk to staff to see if their GF was celiac friendly. Staff was well-informed and shared how they prevent cross contamination. So we were back the next day for my first meatball sub in over ten years. Great flavor, texture, and the homemade sauce...

The deli has so many gluten free options. Almost everything on the menu can be made gluten free with a few small exceptions (muffins, cinnamon rolls). Gluten free bagels are offered as wel as pizza. Food was great, we went for breakfast and ended up ordering to go for lunch at the beach. The service was quick and helpful. The... More

We ate here for brunch/lunch twice during our recent visit. It always had a nice crowd so we knew it was good. My husband loved the mocha coffee and we split a sandwich both times. Sandwich comes with chips (unbagged) and a bit too salty. Sandwiches were tasty and plentiful......I especially like that they added indoor seating besides the outside... More

Me and my husband have eaten here several times during our visit to Sanibel. They have great deli sandwiches, coffee drinks, milk shakes and ice cream, and if you happen to eat gluten free you will have MANY choices of yummy GF sandwiches. I haven't had an Italian sub in ages (I've been GF for 18 yrs) and I enjoyed... More

The owner, now an islander, is from Buffalo, NY. No wonder he has good food and good prices. We recommend this place.

We came for the pizza - which was disappointing. There is no service. Few people working. The guy who took our order cared little about us - when pizza was delivered he did not bring oregano. By the time he brought it the pizza was cold. The Greek salad was also less than desirable.

We stopped in earlier in the week for a cool drink while we scouted out the island. While there the ice cream called our names. On the wall was the article about Queenie's Ice Cream. Look it up on the internet. Made local and with natural ingredients. And natural it is. The mint chocolate chip is not the bright green... More

I don't come over that bridge often but when I do I make a point to go to get lunch here. His food is amazing, I have not had a bad item and I'm sure I never will. The owner has the best sense of humor. You can have a sandwich or pizza and laugh while you're ordering it. He... More
