We decided to eat at this restaurant because it was the only one that didn't seem to close at 9 pm. I had taken my son to Legoland for his birthday and I wasn't arriving back to the island until 8:45. I picked up my mom and we went to this restaurant. They had live music, which was really nice...

DELIGHTFULLY FABULOUS! My daughter and I just took one of our yearly delightful jaunts down to Sanibel Island. We were determined to have one really good meal at a gluten free friendly delightful restaurant and we discovered George & Wendy's! This place absolutely is the best of the best -- my daughter can eat gluten and she had the Shrimp... More

We've passed by this restaurant many times, and finally decided to check it out. IT WAS DELICIOUS! The restaurant starts you off with their wonderful sourdough bread - yum! I got the cobb salad w/ blackened grouper, and the SO got the prime rib. Both were DELICIOUS! I will definitely be returning. Torre, our waiter, was great as well!

It was just ok. We both ordered grouper tacos. There was a nice mango salsa, but the grouper was fishy tasting (so a bit of a let down). Not as special as we had hoped for.

It was a little hard to find behind the tropical foliage but was good for lunch on our first full day on the island. We arrived shortly after lunch so I don't know what the dinner menu looked like but we settled on a burger and patty melt for lunch. The burger was large and tasty and the patty melt... More
