“Excellent Lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2007

On Feb 12 a friend and I stopped here for lunch. We both ordered the same thing; a cup of lobster bisque and spinach salad with sparkling water. Both dishes were just excellent; truly amazing! I could have had just a couple bowls of the lobster bisque and had been happy! But the spinach salad was also delectable. Service was impeccable and top notch. Our lunch came to just under $37 but it was worth every penny! I highly recommend and would most definitely go back!

“Simply the BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2006

I have traveled the world over, and I can honestly say that the Sanibel Steakhouse is the best restaurant I have ever visited. The Food was great, service impeccable, and atmosphere cozy and comfortable. If you get the opportunity to visit Sanibel Island The Sanibel Steakhouse is a must.

“disinterested management”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2006

We had a good meal spolit by bad attention from management.
Welcome was restrained/average, table in an empty restaurant dark and dingy (and I don't mean romantic and secluded).
Food was ok UNTIL waitress knocked over full wine glass (red of course) over table - and me!
OK, accidents happen, but the management were hardly interested - moved us to a (better) empty table and gave us a stain remover spray to try, but that was it - hardly an apology, (except the poor young waitress), no offer to cover cleaning costs, replace the wine (a full glass of their wine is VERY expensive) or even a free coffee to finish our meal.
We were very disappointed with their attitude, got the check and got out of there as quickly as possible.
There are many many better places on the Island to eat and be welcomed!
