While it is a bar it was very welcoming to young families. We chose to eat there as we had been told they would cook fish we had caught on an earlier fishing charter. The food was prepared great, my daughter complimented the oysters, we all enjoyed. So long as you don't mind eating with plastic knives and forks it... More

We had a variety of entrees at the Lazy Flamingo and every one of us was very satisfied! We would stop in again.

It is a crowded, noisy place with great but not fancy food. It is packed all the time with families . I like the happy kid noise! There is plenty of food and many choices ,all Florida fish house inspired. The Conch Chowder is wonderful. Service is great and the price is right.

My wife and I ate here twice on our last trip to Sanibel, both times this restaurant was very busy, but the staff did an outstanding job making sure that everyone was taking care of. The manager was there both nights and did his part welcoming everyone, taking orders and even helping to bring the meals to the customers. Items... More

the large balloon santas and snowmen drew us in during this holiday season; great fun decorations for photo ops. And inside delicious food; large order of french fries come with most dishes; tried the grouper sandwich, a first for me and it will not be the last grouper sandwich I eat. Was delicious. The conch fritters were quite tasty, too.... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch. The service was good and the food was decent. We got a fried grouper basket and a fried shrimp basket. The fries were very good. Can't say I would return but it was fine.

I haven't been to the Lazy Flamingo since May, 2014. Upon returning, the oysters were out of this world! A dozen or so will usually fill me up but I couldn't pass up the mesquite grouper platter. This is by far the best grouper I have tasted! There are three Lazy Flamingo restaurants in the area but you want to... More

This place usually has good food but we were disappointed in the grouper and chicken Ceasar salad last visit. Service was slow even thou not crowded. Outdoor seating is real nice if weather is nice.
