My wife and I dined at the Mad Hatter this past Sunday celebrating our 35th Wedding Anniversary. We arrived a bit after 7 PM and were happy to see that is was quite busy for off-season - a sign of good food and service. We were shown to a nice table at the window which afforded a great view of... More

Two twenty-something’s came here after watching the breath-taking sunset at The Mucky Duck. Came rather late and off-season so did not need a reservation (otherwise I’m sure you would). Ambiance: Alice and Wonderland themed inside (cool paintings, not tacky. Well, maybe a little tacky). Trendy yet elegant vibe inside this unique space (think cottage meets beach bungalow). Service was impeccable,... More

Fantastic food (try the beet salad or duck salad - wow!), great wine, attentive servers, even great with my 5 year olds. Healthy kid options - made them feel... More

This restaurant lived up to other reviews on Tripadvisor as well as Fodor's. The food is delicious and the service is wonderful.

The meal, the setting, the service, this is a great place, in Sanibel, or anywhere else (which cannot be said of most places on the island). Highly recommended

You will love this quaint Sanibel-Captiva locale. The restaurant is in a wonderful location to watch a sunset so be sure to book for dinner to be there. The food is fantastic. We dined with our 10/12 yr olds and they loved the grouper fingers. We had grouper and seabass and both were exquisite. One of the best meals we... More

What a great night . Fantastic location . A seat looking out to the sunset . Magnificent food - simply presented and a well priced win list. Great atmosphere and packed on a Wednesday night. I would definitely return. Unquestionably the best restaurant on Sanibel/Captiva! And I didn't see Rabbit on the menu!

It was refreshing, filled with candied walnuts, thinly sliced pears and topped w/ tempura Gorgonzola. We were very satisfied with our dinner choices. I had the... More
