Best wings on the island!

We have been coming here for 14 yrs and always make a stop for wings and grouper here! Friendly staff, good food with a bar-like atmosphere, but always family friendly! We never miss a year without coming here!

Grouper sandwich always fresh! My husband loves the... More

Service could be better, the wait to me is worth it. The raw clams were excellent, the chowder was awesome. The steak sandwich was good little less fat but good. It is normally quiet but this year the place was bouncing.

The is the best bar! We stayed across the street at the Castaways Resort. The atmosphere was great. This place was the all American dive bar! The staff was great, down-to-earth, and could carry on a genuine conversation. The drinks were priced well and the food was exceptional. I wish in the small central Minnesota town I live was a...

The service was fast, staff was friendly, and the food was pretty good. It's a very casual place with friendly people. It does stay open later for those of you who like to eat late.

the indoor seating was not the most comfortable, but it was spacious enough and the "marine" atmosphere was very attractive in a nautical way. This was our best meal for the money on our whole trip to Sanibel. Seafood was all excellent and prices reasonable.

We have been frequenting The Lazy for decades - the original. This year we went once even though we had been forewarned that all is not well with their menu. We just had to see for ourselves First, what the Sam Hill happened with the smiling upbeat staff? And why, oh, why, are the amazing fried clams no longer on... More

Went here with the kids for evening - cool American bar when it's best! - friendly and efficient down-to-earth staff, truly delicious tender fresh food, fish, seafood, burgers, chicken - everything was just perfect, including very fair prices! Maybe the best place we went for family dinner in Florida.

We have been eating at the Lazy Flamingo (Sanibel/Captiva Location) for about 10 years! We have NEVER had a bad experience. It's usually our 1st stop once we get on the island. The Bronzed Grouper Sandwich is amazing! Service is always great!

Not much of a variety of food. No mixed drinks (so no liquor). Food was mediocre. Servers were nice and fast though.
