“Great marina location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

We had a 20 minute wait for lunch but watching the boats in the marina helped to pass the time. For lunch we had a fish chowder which was okay followed by the fried grouper sticks on top of their homemade potato chips. The chips became somewhat soggy under the fish sticks and there were not that many fish sticks. A nice orchid bordered the wicker basket but it also was supposed to have fruit. Yes, a tiny slice of cantaloupe and a few grapes. Not good value.

“What fun and good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

We came in with a group of almost 20, and they served us with the efficiency for a table of 4.

Loved the food, my wife and I had the soft shell crab sandwich - really excellent. And the sides were equally as good and tasty.

Rest of folks and many different courses and all enjoyed them.

And the service was really good.

“Favorite place for lunch on Sanibel !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Been coming here for probably over 20 years! Still a favorite! Love to watch the birds, the boats, and enjoy fresh grouper! Go in the middle of the afternoon to miss the lunch & dinner crowds-no wait! Great food, great service, great atmosphere! A must go on the island! Great little store for a t-shirt and good place for the kids ! Can also take a ride on the Stars & Stripes for just$25! Great spot!

“Don't miss this great place for lunch ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

Blackened grouper sandwich and home made potato chips were the best we've had! This will be an required lunch spot for whenever we are in southwest Florida!
