Very Good Seafood & Steaks

We sat outside and had a lovely dinner. If you enjoy martini's get the Dirty Thirsty, it was so smooth. I had grouper, others had seafood pasta, and the ribeye which was huge, perfectly cooked and a great piece of red meat. Quality food and good service, highly recommend this place.

My daughter and I recently had lunch at George and Wendys, where we were able to sit outside under umbrella tables and enjoy the cool breezes on a hot day. I ordered fish tacos in gluten free (corn) tortillas, but they were served in wheat tortillas, so had to send them back. The fish in the tacos was not very... More

My family has been coming to Sanibel for over 20 years. We have always had our favorites and traditions on the Island. However, on Thursday night March 26 we decided to try George and Wendy's on a whim. Great choice. Excellent menu, great service, fair price. Tuna nachos were off the charts as were the buffalo shrimp. My daughter, not... More

Ate here with the family lat week for dinner, around 500pm. The place was busy on the patio, inside was fairly empty. I get the idea that you could probably find a table if you walked in just about always. I ordered the Lobster Fettuccini. Honestly it was really good. Ridiculous amount of lobster in it. I was expecting a... More

I love a good Sunday Brunch Buffet but since their buffet only had one non breakfast food item (a seafood crepe) this seemed more of a breakfast buffet. The selection was a bit small but the food was pretty good, the music was nice as was the patio seating. One really great thing was that they made the eggs benedict... More

I have had several meals at George & Wendy's over the last five years while vacationing on Sanibel Island, FL. My absolute favorite sandwich ANYWHERE is the beef on wieck which is prime rib beef served on their specialty caraway seed / garlic salt roll dipped into au jus. The service was outstanding also - Abbie did a great job... More

Good food and service! We needed an early dinner because of a scheduled tour and they were able to accomodate, unlike some other restaurants in the area. My sons kids meal was served on an upside down Frisbee that we could take with us....nice idea.

Had dinner there and found the tuna nachos to be so hot that they were inedible. Was tempted to sent back the dinner. Skipped dessert and went to the Yogurt place in the complex that was great

Our first night on Sanibel and we found a Jewel on the first pick. George And Wendy's had a very pleasant atmosphere with beautiful Island theme paintings on every wall featured by the same artist. The staff was all very friendly especially our server Kelly who was very helpful. The best part was the Food. I had the Pina Colada... More

We stopped by for an early (around 5:00) dinner. No outside seating available, but inside was was fabulously decorated with bright, tropical paintings. The food was delicious, and staff was friendly. We really enjoyed it.
