Fun atmosphere. Great service. Lots of choices equals happy tummies for everybody in the group. I enjoyed the tuna nachos which are a fresh and flavorful party for your mouth. High quality tuna and very fresh. Hubby had the evening steak special for Thursday night's meat lovers. We make this one of our stops every trip.

For Sanibel standards is an average place. Good location, the food is average and the price is a bit to high for it. The drinks were nothing special.

Ate here on birthday trip for Mom! Must have ordered wrong thing. Mom got baby backs and returned because too spicy for her. Waiter seemed irritated that she called ribs spicy. He did bring here a delicious burger and fries to replace. Sister and I both ordered Seafood Alfredo. Not like traditional Alfredo, was a pink sauce with heavy cream... More

two twenty-something’s stopped by after seeing pictures of the Tuna Nachos. They did not disappoint. very impressed with a unique and bold take on a tired dish. Tuna was cooked perfectly. Buffalo Shrimp, another tired dish, was served excellently here. Fried perfectly and certainly spicy, they really hit the spot. Sat at the bar and took advantage of the $2... More

We went there today based on reviews and it did not disappoint. I was a little apprehensive when we got there because there were only two families there (around 8pm). However, about twenty minutes later more people arrived. The decor is nice, relaxed and tropical. They have a nice big bar. My husband ordered the drunkin grouper(so good) and the... More

It was ok. Everyone was friendly and the service was great. The food was just ok. Too much money for what everyone got. I wouldn't go again.

Our family ate there on a recent vacation in Sanibel. Decor was very nice, Food was excellent and our server, Torrey B, really made the meal enjoyable. My grouper was really good, daughter had scallops that were really fresh, even my other daughter's cheeseburger was good. I would absolutely make this a stop if you're visiting Sanibel

We had checked the reviews and decided to try this location. Our waiter was fantastic. He told us the specials like an "auctioneer" and didn't hesitate. He was on point with our party of 7 and kept everyone laughing. The food was outstanding and the menu offers something for everyone. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is bright with interesting pictures... More

For anyone with gluten intolerance issues, I highly recommend George and Wendy's Seafood Grille. My wife and daughter have Celiac Disease and the staff was able to accommodate us without incident. Though they don't have a separate gluten free menu, it states to inform your waiter if you need gluten free fare. Our waiter (ask for Ray B.) was very... More
