Our family of four dined here this evening for dinner. Two adults, a teeanger and an 11-year old. We read the reviews and decided it sounded very good. Very cute place with a laid-back, beachy feel, although it's not on the beach. No wait at 6:30 p.m. Seated quickly and our waitress was very attentive & efficient. The menu raves... More

Nothing to dislike. Entire staff wait on you hand and foot. Its a must stop when coming to Sanibel. Say hi to George and tall the staff #29 the Softball Player told you to be here. One time will not be your last I promise

Over the course of the month of March, dined at George and Wendy's several times. Seafood was excellent. Sunday brunch is very good. Have live entertainment most evenings. Excellent cocktails and beer selections. All very reasonably priced. For some reason, not as popular as many of the other restaurants on the island, but would highly recommend that you give George...

I live on Sanibel and eat here all the time. My favorite is the Blackened Salmon Caribbean Salad. Good service, good prices.

Had lunch here on family vacation. All food (grilled grouper sandwich, grouper Reuben and a shrimp and pasta dish were all "fine". Side Caesar salad super fresh and yummy. Glad we sat outside, because inside smelled like stale beer and pine sol. Service friendly, but not efficient. Wouldn't hurry back.

We had our daughter's rehearsal dinner at George and Wendy's last Friday night, paid for by the grooms parents. I had suggested it because there were only 42 people invited to the wedding and they have a back room that would fit everyone perfectly. I have had dinner, happy hour and Karaoke night at this restaurant and it is a... More

So you can tell George is from Buffalo when you see Gilbert's sweater framed on the wall by the bar. So that's worth three stars when we're from the same area. Then lets add a couple stars for the food and the friendly service. We enjoyed our dinner and will be sure to make a return visit.

Our family came for dinner once and did take-out once. Kids meals came on a Frisbee so that was a winner (and they were affordable $6). We all tried something different from Bourbon Salmon for $24 to Drunken Grouper $26 with chilies and tequila. Food was good. Artwork on the walls was really like dining in a gallery - very... More

Insane Tuna nachos. Fresh, beautiful, and yummy. I work on the Island and it's the 2nd time in a month I've had the nachos. The wait staff is fast and friendly. I eat at the bar and I have been able to get in and out in less than my 1 hour lunch hour. Its worth the trip.
