Of course its all weather related...sitting outside on a perfect hot day makes this a stunner spot to have drink and eat some lunch..... a great place to hang and enjoy life! Had the rum runner with the extra floater and bigger size....amazing! Really good and... More

Whether I was coming in from the beach, sitting by the pool or headed out for shopping, this was the best place for lunch each day. Grilled mani mani sandwiches are amazing, and the staff has a great attitude. They make every day enjoyable at this poolside lunch spot. It is very casual, but the food and adult beverages are...

Great poolside bar. Good menu, great service. They even have live entertainment. Great margaritas too! Try the shrimp and crab quesadillas.

We loved all of it! Excellent!! Great service! Extremely friendly and helpful. Kid friendly which was nice! They had an excellent blackened grouper sandwich and their Ahi fish tacos were amazing. Even the cheeseburger on the kids meal was fantastic. Very juicy and flavorful. And the fries were out of this world! definitely a fun place to eat outside and... More

Chris, the chief mixologist is a real pro. Make sure he is working when you come. By the pool and the beach. Perfect! A neat place for happy hour.

It was fun to sit around the pool and enjoy good food and frosty drinks. We had grouper sandwich, mahi tacos, chicken tenders, and salad. The location was great as we could see the Gulf from our table. The staff was friendly and very helpful with selections. We'll go back here again.

Listed on TripAdvisor as (currently) the 5th best restaurant on Sanibel Island, I think I would disagree a little with that ranking. It's your typical pool-side restaurant serving burgers and fries. They made an attempt at an Asian salad, but it was really a poor execution. Service was great and friendly. Adjacent to the rum bar so you can easily... More

Great food and friendly atmosphere. Right by the gulf, so it has a beachy atmosphere to it. Recommend it for a casual lunch.

While waiting for my fiancé getting her nails manicured I decided to chill out at the Rum bar. Coconuts was facing the ocean gulf with a breeze blowing a Rum Runner scent in the right direction. The tiki tender was kind enough to give me a recipe for Rum Runner for my son Jeremy's. Birthday present! Tiki hats off to... More
