“Great family restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

Island Cow is always a stop for us when our grandkids come. We enjoy a great breakfast there. We have also had dinner there, fresh fish and it was very good.

“Now this place was good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

We had a nice breakfast. Pancakes with blueberries on top, sausage and a short of all in one plate with assuage, eggs, toast, grits, and potatoes. All was great and I would have liked to come by for lunch but we are on our way out of town

“Tasty, ample and reasonable...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

Have eaten here several times and the omelets and pancakes do not disappoint. Both are served with well seasoned potatoes and a small serving of fruit. Complimentary muffins are placed on the table while breakfast is being prepared. Service is good and the staff is friendly. Compared to other restaurants on Sanibel, The Island Cow is very reasonably priced.

We have breakfast there the majority of the days we are there. very good food in a funky, down home, atmosphere. Lots of food and the prices are quite reasonable.
