We were looking for a place for an anniversary dinner. We had both specials: swordfish with vegetables and mahi-mahi with lump crab, asparagus and saffron rice which were excellent . service was very attentive; only downfall was atmosphere was not very romantic. Krupa paintings were interesting to look at on the walls. Portions were good so we ordered red velvet... More

We ordered take out from here and were disappointed as we went based on some good reviews. From the initial phone ordering to actually picking up the food, the service person was short and rude. The food was cold (and I only traveled a few blocks), the decorative veggies were soft and wilted, the salad dressing was too heavily spiced... More

My mother and I are first time visitors to Sanibel and went to George and Wendy's after reading several positive recommendations. The food was disappointing at best. I had the drunken grouper which was totally absent the tequila and green Chile sauce described. It had a bland roasted red pepper sauce. My mom had prime rib which would have been... More

Great food and atmosphere! A must do when on the island and I can't wait to visit again. Don't leave the island without trying their grouper and shrimp!

First, I must say George and Wendy's needs better signage -- one would pass it by without the address and a good GPS. But, that said, we had a wonderful, casual dinner there. We both had Grouper sandwiches -- mine fried, my husband's blackened -- both were delish! And our waiter (who was truly overloaded with tables), Carl, was a... More

my husband and I had a variety of food everything from Buffalo shrimp buffalo wings, clam chowder, Pizza, tuna nachos, and a club sandwich. Everything was fabulous, even the French fries! If I had to pick my number one food I could not choose between the buffalo chicken, Buffalo shrimp, or the tuna nachos. They all are 5 star! Our... More

We really liked this place. Great atmosphere. Nice bar. We just had sandwiches but they were exceptional. Nice selection of draft beers(a lil pricey for the IPA's) but very good. Our waiter/bartender was absolutely the best(Carmen). Personable and attentive. Just a very nice experience. We'll be back next year.

My husband got the lobster Alfredo and I had the fried grouper sandwich. The Alfredo was not a traditional Alfredo , was pinkish in color and didn't have a whole lot of taste. There was a lot of lobster claw meat in there though. Sandwich was just average.

We didn't like caribian food, so far. Still, when you are in that region, you should try. We did it a few times between Savannah and the Keys, and we were disappointed a few times. Still, this restaurant's menu card was so interesting that we made another try. And there it was: sweet and sour, juicy and crispy - a... More
