I had lunch on the deck at the Lazy Flamingo during the final day of a multi-day trip to Sanibel. The broiled grouper sandwich was extremely fresh and the key lime pie seemed to have been homemade.
Since we arrived at the start of lunch service at 11:30 am, I was able to catch a Sysco truck unloading at the back of the restaurant, which made me wonder whether I was going to have a quality experience. But to the Lazy Flamingo's credit, a local fishmonger's truck, out of Cape Coral, pulled in shortly thereafter. So long story short, at least some of the Lazy Flamingo's fish and seafood appears to be sourced from a smaller, local supplier.
The service was fine, but our server became overwhelmed quickly by a rush of customers around noon, and our check required two corrections. Again, I don't think the server was being a "lazy flamingo"; instead, her errors appear to have been result of the restaurant going from 0 to 50 customers in the span of just half an hour. A popular spot no doubt, especially among the sort of people who like knocking back several cocktails the clock strikes noon.
Overall, a very positive experience for lunch, the deck making it all the more enjoyable. At $13.00 for a fresh Florida grouper sandwich with fries and slaws, and $4.99 for the pie, I was content.
