Great food and kids love it!

The menu is pretty limited here. But, everything we tried was really good. Shrimp are enormous and delicious. Clams were fantastic. My kids request to come here every trip. They love eating off frisbees and the guy in the flamingo hat.

Great food and atmosphere. The conch fritters were fantastic! I ordered the Mahi-Mahi salad and it was great! Fresh, moist and filled with flavor! Love all the decor and laid back atmosphere. Would definitely go back again!

We came here for two different nights. It's really more of a bar atmosphere, but service is good and the raw bar was great. The first night we had oysters on the half shell, mussels, a grouper sandwich, and surf and turf. We all enjoyed our meal. The 2nd night, we had gone fishing and they prepared our catch for... More

We stopped at the Lazy Flamingo for lunch and sat outside on the deck. We were lucky to be the only family outside, so we enjoyed a quiet and relaxing lunch. Everything we ordered was great, especially the grilled grouper, just awesome! The only negative point was the plastic cutlery...but this is something we experienced a lot during our three-week-stay... More

We always stop at the Lazy Flamingo when we visit Sanibel. The Caesar Salad with chicken was huge and very filling. The guy with the flamingo hat kept the kids entertained while we waited on our food.

If you have kids, this is your venue. If you are seeking something quiet with exceptional food, this is a place to skip. Pricews are average, food is average, atmosphere island quaint.

I visit Sanibel several times a year and eating at the Lazy Flamingo has become a tradition. Unfortunately it's food is just OK and the service can be terrible at times. nevertheless they serve great oysters and it's sort of a classic beach bar.

Love this place! We make a point to stop in whenever in Sanibel. The food is great - fried grouper sandwich is awesome! Service is quick and friendly and the atmosphere is perfect - laid back and inviting. Gotta check this place out if ever on the island!

Cute restaurant. We had a pound of shrimp which had been boiled. Nowhere on the menu did it mention how they are served and I probably should have asked. We had a great waitress, HOWEVER, when it came time for our bill, we waited an excruciatingly long 15 minutes. I never did get a satisfactory response on why it took... More
