Happy Hour & Dining

Have been here several times for happy hour and had dinner. The food has been great both at the bar & the dining room. Great sports bar with lots of TV's & big bar/seating. Would recommend.

Kasey was our server and he did an excellent job. I had the Blackened Snapper and my wife had the Blue Cheese Encrusted Salmon. We both agree it was the best dinner we have had on all of our visits to Sanibel and Captiva. Outside and indoor dining are both available. Very good extensive menu and we have already changed...

Excellent service and food for a good island price. Get there a bit on the early side and you'll enjoy a more quiet dinner and full attention from the wait staff.

If you like casual bar food this is the place. If you like a nice dinner this is also the place. George makes the best wings outside of Buffalo NY and Wendy makes the best Chowder outside of Boston. We shared a flatbread pizza and a plate of 10 wings and we were full and happy when we left. This... More

We ate lunch here on a Saturday in Jan 2016. No waiting for a table. I had fried scallops and my husband had the chicken tacos. Both were excellent. Service was very good as well.

The food and service were both wonderful. The pesto dipping sauce with the warm bread is still in my mind. We went back a second night, so that pretty much sums it up. The thing that really made our dining experience extra special was the original artwork on the walls-many large, very unique and colorful paintings of wildlife from the... More

We had heard good reviews on this restaruant and thought we would give it a try, the four of us, but all were not as pleased with it as we had experienced at other restaurants at Sanibel. All agreed, we had tried it and would not be hurrying back.

Everything was very good. We ate light with PEI mussels, bottle of wine, and the Caribbean spinach salad with grilled shrimp. All was EXCELLANT. Also, Torrey and Sarah were very good servers. We will definitely return. Additionally, there is a very pleasant tone within the restaurant.
