Great grouper sandwich.....

The grilled grouper sandwich was so good I went back a second time. Service was a little slow but we hit them during peak lunch time during peak season. My only compliant was their kids mac and cheese. A little creativity folks........ We can do Kraft at home.

Inside and outside seating, easy going and fun, we had the steak sandwich and could only eat half of it. No problem dining with your swimsuit and cover-up - that's all part of the island! Order the garlic bread as soon as somebody looks at you! You might have to get another order! This is the only thing we do... More

OMG - I had the mesquite grilled chicken caeser salad. The chicken was beyond full of flavour and extremely moist. So delicious. My husband had a burger and said it was very good as well. I've tried the location on McGregor in Fort Myers but prefer this location more. It's worth the $6.00 toll to cross into Sanibel Island. Very... More

We arrived at 9pm-only 20 minute wait. Extremely surprised seeing it was Spring Break. Atmosphere is very family friendly. We were able to watch the NCAA men's basketball games. Prices are reasonable. All of the staff works together as a team. Food service was quick. I will definitely go here again.

We stopped by this restaurant and are happy to report that the food was great and the service was better. We had tried this place before and we not so happy. This visit included a grouper basket that was just outstanding. We ordered and were eating inside of 10 minutes. Thanks and keep up the great job.

The lazy flamingo on periwinkle way has been a favorite of ours for over 12 years! It doesn't matter if you go there for the fish or chicken wings or the clam chowder it is simply the best food on sanibel island! The atmosphere is great and the staff is super friendly!

Ordered the Grouper basket (market price) $15.95. my husband had the burger $10.95....both very good...Grouper was blackened and cooked perfectly, not dry...juicy but done and it was a good size, not too much, just enough... the fries were also very good, well seasoned....the only part of the meal that was under par was that the tea was very weak....watered down...but...

If it were up to me I would be there every day for lunch and dinner. The place is very very busy so if you want to be pampered go some where else. It gives me a chance to get a table. It is more for locals but that's where I want to be where the locals go not a... More
