George and Wendy's provides family dining with the entire package: peaceful atmosphere, excellent food, great value, and wonderful service! They have outdoor patio seating, main dining areas, as well as a bar (separate from the main dining). It is always clean and we have always experienced prompt service, no matter what time of day or evening we go. Many places... More

Had a horrible experience at the Thistle Lodge and found this place on the way back to the hotel. Don't ever under estimate the value of a loaded parking lot! Great service and food and turned our lemon of an experience at the Thistle Lodge Hotdog stand into lemonade! All that glitters is not gold.

Had a great dinner with the family here. Cocktails were tasty. Fresh bread and dip were great. Husband liked the chowder and buffalo shrimp. Daughter liked wings. My rosemary shrimp chicken pasta was good. (Although the texture of the chicken was a little rubbery). The marinara sauce was excellent! Great service.

Really nice patio with outside seating for owners and pets. Pets food served in a Frisbee (providing you order them something). Food was amazing- one of the best meals we've had out in a long time. Service was friendly and fast. A must do in Sanibel!

Enjoyed dinner here with family. The menu has numerous choices, more than enough to satisfy picky teenagers. The food was tasty and everyone was pleased with their meal. Service was good as well. Meals were not expensive, rather, reasonably priced. I would not label the grille as an inexpensive option. A fine place to enjoy a casual, well-cooked (and served)... More

We visit George and Wendy's every time we visit Sanibel. Each time we walk away loving the food. This was our 3rd visit and it was very disappointing. We ordered Grouper Ruben sandwiches which are normally our favorite, but this time the grouper was not fresh. It was awful this time. We ended up leaving the leftovers which is not... More

As a food service profesional I can say this is the place to go on Sanibel! You can't go wrong with the advuce of the locals. We had the specials of the night and were blown away! Thanks to Carmen who led us through the night and George for saying hi and making us feel like welcome!

We come to George & Wendy's every year and it is always a highlight. Excellent food and service. Grouper Rueben sandwich is my favorite! Treat yourself and get the tuna nachos! After visiting the island 4 times, this restaurant is a favorite. Don't miss out!
