I stopped in and ordered the fish and chips - which is made with local caught grouper. The fish is hand breaded and deep fried - but not greasy at all. The fries are always the best on island. I make a point to enjoy the fish and chips each time I visit Sanibel.

We had high expectations for this place as their menu and prices were right up our alley, especially on Sanibel Island. Our basic hot dog was decent sized, we ordered it boiled instead of fried, and had the skin on. A fried fish sandwich was good-nice roll, though thin sized piece of haddock. Kielbasa was good as well, but of... More

Cool little place to get a quick meal when you don't want to be tied down for 1.5 hrs at a sit down meal. Mostly fast food type menu. Seating outside which is hot in July, plus bugs were bad. Hot dogs and fries are definitely worth the trip though.

If you are in Sanibel, you have to stop by here. The wings are the best I've ever had. This is absolutely a "to go" place ... they have a very small area (picnic tables) outside, but it's usually too hot in FL to eat wings outside ... take them back to the condo & enjoy ... fries are good... More

We stopped here for a quick bite to eat before we headed to the beach. It was crowded and very warm inside, wondering if they kept the front door shut if that would help keep the air inside? They have a long "table" that you can stand at and eat, there is no seating inside. They do have some benches... More

A casual beach menu that is always good. The prices were a bit high but the food was good. The fry servings were large and the hotdog /burger topping list was extensive. Plan to call in your order ahead or be prepared to wait!

Nice place to grab some lunch or dinner. Great burgers, about as close to a homemade burger you can get. Nice and messy.
