The food was good, but not real memorable. Our server was horrible though. We could not locate her on multiple occasions and even when the runners brought the food and I asked for items (water refill, dressing that was supposed to come with my salad), they disappeared as well. The restaurant was nicely furnished and staff (when you found them)... More

Just walked in and a table was available. Good service. Beef weck sandwich and prawn tacos. Beef was so tender and perfectly cooked. Blackened prawns in tacos perfect. Good size portions

George & Wendy's is located in the Bailey Center. They have patio dining, a bar area, and dining rooms. Our lunch--a Cobb salad and a Chicken salad-- was good, and there was plenty of it. That said, prices here are higher than average on the island.

Visited George and Wendy's twice during on one week on Sanibel. The service is excellent from the hosts to the bartenders to the wait staff. And, the food was also excellent - especially liked the beef on weck sandwich. Would definitely recommend a vist.

The buffalo shrimp is wonderful. The shrimp are huge and cooked perfectly. Berry mojito is the best I've ever had!

We ate lunch here at an outside table in the garden which was nice. However we would not have been happy to eat at an inside table as we did not like the atmosphere or aromas inside. The fish lunch was OK but no more than that. Nothing was wrong with the food and we quite enjoyed our meal but... More

I can't speak to the restaurant since we went specifically for the music and the late night menu. The website is misleading as to the hours for the late night menu. It kind of implies it begins at 9 PM, it begins at 10. We ordered a couple appetizers anyway. They were OK but nothing special. My flat bread pizza... More

Although we didn't have a meal at this adorable restaurant, we were fortunate enough to be invited to a private birthday party in their back room for appetizers and drinks. Chef Janice prepared a large array of appetizers, both hot and cold, that was impressive and tasty. In addition to the customary nibbles, she prepared enormous stuffed mushrooms, meatballs, wings,...

We had two delicious lunches at George and Wendy's while in Sanibel. Both times we ordered variations of the grouper. So we had grouper entree, grouper sandwich and grouper taco. The fish was perfect in all variations. The vegetables with the entree were terrific.....some sort of butter lemon sauce on them? Cole slaw with the sandwich was perfectly made....not too... More
