Very popular venue on Sanibel just on the junction of Tarpon And Perriwinkle outside Baileys. The outside doesn't really do it justice, probably due to its location but it is well worth a visit. Very comprehensive menu, good portions and friendly service. There's a lot going on in George and Wendy's with a seated bar area or tables to dine... More

We stopped for lunch on the way to the beach. The menu had good variety, creativity and was delicious. The staff was also very obliging in creating a drink, mud slide, that was not on the menu. The only draw back to the visit was the noise from the people trimming the hedges as we had chosen to eat outside.... More

We were at this restaurant twice. First was for dinner which was pretty good. Waiter was great and attentive. We came back 2 days later to listen to a blues band. It was GREAT. We had drinks and appetizers at the bar. Let me tell you the Brie appetizer was one of the best I have every had.

This location has had a few different restaurants over the years, but this is one of the better ones. Inside the seating is nice and open and the overall feel of the place is clean. They have beautiful paintings on the walls, too. The food is delicious with pretty decently sized portions. Although the environment is on the nicer side,... More

The atmosphere is fun--love the art and the outdoor tiki lit area. Last summer when we were there for dinner, the open mic entertainment was a hoot. This visit, my husband raved about the homemade chicken noodle soup. We both love the crab cakes and the sourdough bread. I wasn't crazy about the chicken Marsala, though, because the sauce was...

Had a flight into Ft. Myers that left us seeking "lunch" at 4:00 p.m. We decided on appetizers and a beer. We had Tuna Nachos and Calamari. Outstanding Ahi Tuna served Rare with seaweed salad and flavorful sauces and picked ginger. One word, WOW. Nice server and a great experience for two hungry travelers.

We went here with some friends for a bite to eat. Great location on Sanibel. The food was pretty good but $$$$. Service was good. After reading another review I'm not sure I got an itemized receipt for the dinner. Just a bill for $102 for two of us before tip ? That makes me wonder if I tipped twice?

We have been there twice due to good experience on our first visit. The second visit was besides food embarrassing. The service lady, when we are asking for the cheque, added automatically 25% gratuity before tax. Strange behaviour, which has been not applied on our first visit. We cut out the gratuity and gave to the service lady 20% tip... More

Last year we ate here 3 times, this year only once. On our visit the service was poor and the food only average. We were a party of 4, 2 Americans and 2 Brits, we had eaten here together before. There were 3 Grouper Sandwiches and a Loaded Burger, the comments about the Grouper were, certainly not as good as... More
