Are favorites are the specials so they are not always on the menu. We went twice but will not return since the pesto scallops and pear cake are not regularly available.

Went to this restaurant as it was recommended by a local. Never again!! We sat at the bar to have a cocktail and an appetizer. Nice girl greeted us, took our order, and disappeared. After waiting awhile "SEAN" approached us and says," did you need something?" We told him we ordered from the girl and he tells us she left.... More

Group of 5 enjoyed dinner last week. Very good seafood. Casual environment. All 5 were happy with the variety and quality. We are outside but got chased by the skeeters at dusk...Florida !

Our family (two adults and one 3 year old) visited George and Wendy's for dinner on our first night in Sanibel (Tuesday). Our son has a gluten allergy. The restaurant carries gluten-free pasta as an option. Our server was attentive and gave suggestions including a grilled grouper and fries kids option. My wife had a fancier (not side) salad and...

Had to go there, especially after reading the reviews. Friendly staff and well prepared food at a good price. Got my vote and I'm a redneck NASCAR guy too.

Many people flock to another well known location but for us you just can't beat George and Wendy's. Beautiful beachy décor, excellent food at very reasonable prices. In time this place should become No # 1 spot on Sanibel. Great location in front of Bailey's at corner of Tarpon Bay RD and Periwinkle. Dogs welcome on front patio. Our new

Great food with excellent service. Well worth the visit. The menu takes some time to digest, it is huge. After our selection food service was prompt and piping hot. Be sure when on Sanibel to visit.

Just came back from dinner at the Seafood Grille. Excellent meal, excellent service. Highly recommend. The Crabmeat Bruschetta Flatbread is great, a restaurant specialty. The Lobster Fettucine with Blackened Shrimp was outstanding. Rick was a great server who took care of our every need. They also have music later in the evening. A great stop!
