Great Happy Hour Appetizers

The menu has variety plus a lot of microbeers. Happy Hour appetizers are really good. Seafood is fresh, people working there friendly, it's my "go to" place on Sanibel.

On our 11th trip to Sanibel we decided to try a few restaurants we've never been to before. We were so impressed with the Sanibel Seafood Grille we went back again. The food, the drinks, the atmosphere and the service is all top notch. Ask for Torrey as your server...he is fantastic!

Great service from Torrey, Marcus and Kasey. The bacon wrapped scallops were phenomenal. Clean restaurant, genial interactions with and between staff; plainly a team working together. Will eat here again, when on island.

I ordered the grouper tacos. Had no flavor at all. The salad tasted old, didn't feel fresh at all and smelled bad. The rice and beans were called an not fresh. Felt Re heated. I would definitely NOT come back again.

We were struck by the unusually pretty landscaping with a curvy path, tall palms, torches, and a lovely patio. It would be so nice in milder weather! We were seated inside near the bar and really enjoyed the young man playing guitar and singing. We were served promptly and had a very nice hot fresh loaf of sourdough bread that... More

We've been to George and Wendy's previously and always had good experiences and this time was no different. We were seated quickly and our server was friendly and recommended various items on the menu. I had the blackened grouper tacos with a side of yellow rice and black beans. The tortillas were very fresh and the fish was delicious with... More

This placed turned out to be a delight. Not what we expected at all so we were quite pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the food turned out to be here. We would recommend this place to anyone. Please stop in and discover what G&W is all about. It's a well kept and maintained (clean) seafood place. Prices are what you... More

We stopped here after the sunset tour at the J.N Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. I think we arrived around 9-9:30. They had a live band playing, but nothing impressive. We sat in the back and ate dinner. The seafood linguini was awesome. My wife had the grouper and said it was excellent also. Only concern is that they are on... More
