Had good food here - were able to make a reservation which is always good. Bar was very noisy. We were in a quieter room behind the bar area - only part of it was set up - so not much atmosphere. Grouper sandwiches were great. Would go back

Lackluster. Over priced for what you get. Run of the mill food. Loud with little acoustics. Disappointing.

food was average - you have much better choices on the island, especially if you are looking for seafood

I was a bit late for supper and found the restaurant buzzing with efficient, multiple, servers who took my drink order and then followed through with excellent, attentive service and good food that had some unusual flavors. I was eating alone and I am often stuck at the bar or in a corner. Not here! As busy as they were... More

Had a late lunch when we first came on the island. I had the grouper tacos which were excellent. My wife had the shrimp tacos which were also very good. Convenient location near Baileys.

Always stop by on my way off the island from the beach. Fast, courteous service and reasonable prices for the lunch menu.

We tried several restaurants on Sanibel this trip, based upon various Trip Adviser reviews. This one was a little disappointing. Was not busy although our server paid little attention to us and seemed spread a little thin, trying to take care of too many tables. Food was average but nothing special or exciting, compared to some other similarly-priced restaurants that... More

Two so-called appetizers were more than we needed and we couldn't find room for dessert! Try the tuna nachos and, if they have the special, the Caribbean chowder.

Good chowder, salad and sandwiches. I am fussy about French fries. If they are not well done a crispy I will only eat a couple, which was the case here. Service is good and the place is very nice and has some pretty wild art work. Next time I would specify "well done" fries.

The place was packed so we were seated in the large back room--no atmosphere and very noisy, but probably a good place to take kids. The blue cheese encrusted salmon was excellent--the best our group had. The crab flatbread was different and not bad, the blackened ahi tuna with crunchy veggies was ok, but the pina colada snapper was not... More
