We just happened to come across this place when we checked out Sanibel island. The food was just incredible. I was actually upset that I couldn't finish my chicken tacos! :) We wound up going back the next day for one of their daily specials... 1lb. Of crab legs for 18.00. This will be a definite stop for us next... More

Nice, casual atmosphere with friendly and accommodating staff. Three of us in our group, ordered different entrees and all were high quality and well prepared. The happy hour appetizers are also a great deal! Glad we found this place.

We thought the name was a little hokey, but we decided to try George and Wendy's while on vacation in Captiva, recently. Starting with the scrumptious Pumpkin Spice martinis and ending with key lime pie, our meals were fresh, tasty, and perfectly prepared and presented. My husband's grouper franchaise was the best he's had anywhere -- he kept talking about... More

What more can one say about a restaurant than Good Food?? Lots of choices on the menu. All 4 in our party were pleased with their food. Staff friendly and questions answered with a smile. Will go back.

Decided to stop in and try out George & Wendy's and was not disappointed. The food was fresh and very tasty. Not sure what vjkw wrote such an awful review, the place was clean, no smell, nicely decorated and the service was great. My husband had the grouper sandwich and it was quite good. I had a shrimp pasta that... More

Do not go here! This place could be compared to the same run down, bar food, greasy spoon that you would not go to in any city. Not worthy of real estate on beautiful Sanibel! Went here for a drink with other couples after an incredible dinning experience at Cips. Smells like rotten grease, patrons are allowed behind bar, drinks... More

Recently visited Sanibel and Captiva with a friend. Our first stop was George and Wendy's for clam chowder. She agreed that it is the BEST EVER!!!

At the end of our first visit to Sanibel Island, and touring the nature preserve and gathering shells at Bowman's Beach, we half stumbled into George and Wendy's as a persistent rain began to fall late on a Sat afternoon. Thirsty and hungry, we would have settled for ordinary fare, warm and filling. Instead we were surprised to find a... More

Except pizza it's hard to find places open after 9:00. You can call in your order or stop by. The food is delicious with a flair. I appre-ciated the variety for that time of night. The menus for day and night are on the website.

It was hard to decide, whether to dine inside or out. As Canadians, we take every chance to be out in the wonderful Florida Air. We were not disappointed. We chose our entrees with the assistance of our capable server and it arrived quickly, but no sense of being rush. I would go back without hesitation!
