We went there today based on reviews and it did not disappoint. I was a little apprehensive when we got there because there were only two families there (around 8pm). However, about twenty minutes later more people arrived. The decor is nice, relaxed and tropical. They have a nice big bar. My husband ordered the drunkin grouper(so good) and the... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant on our first night in Sanibel Island. We were both surprised by the great service, and fantastic food! The food was absolutely delicious! Kudos to the chef! You must visit this place.

It was ok. Everyone was friendly and the service was great. The food was just ok. Too much money for what everyone got. I wouldn't go again.

Our family ate there on a recent vacation in Sanibel. Decor was very nice, Food was excellent and our server, Torrey B, really made the meal enjoyable. My grouper was really good, daughter had scallops that were really fresh, even my other daughter's cheeseburger was good. I would absolutely make this a stop if you're visiting Sanibel

We had checked the reviews and decided to try this location. Our waiter was fantastic. He told us the specials like an "auctioneer" and didn't hesitate. He was on point with our party of 7 and kept everyone laughing. The food was outstanding and the menu offers something for everyone. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is bright with interesting pictures... More

For anyone with gluten intolerance issues, I highly recommend George and Wendy's Seafood Grille. My wife and daughter have Celiac Disease and the staff was able to accommodate us without incident. Though they don't have a separate gluten free menu, it states to inform your waiter if you need gluten free fare. Our waiter (ask for Ray B.) was very... More

We checked out some reviews and this place looked pretty good so we stopped in for dinner. We ate in the bar area which was a nice area. I ordered the Grouper Franchise and my wife had the Bourbon Salmon. Both of our meals were Outstanding. Everything from the drinks to the veggies was perfect. Many thanks to Carmen for... More

This restaurant has a terrific location, and nice island atmosphere, albeit a pretty large place. The artwork on display was a real nice touch. The place is also very family friendly and can handle a large party. The first thing I noticed is that the menu is quite extensive (think: Bennigans)... That gave me my first red flag that the...

We had a fantastic evening at George and Wendy's. First, we had dinner with our family. We had blackened grouper bites as an appetizer and they were great. They had a variety of specials, two of which we tried. The New York Strip was delicious, as was the pork chop. Our server, Larissa, made us feel very welcome. After dinner,... More

It is our must stop on our way back , mainly for tuna nachos. You have to try it at least once - crispy, spicy, flavorful, absolutely delicious.
