Came out thinking it was off-season only to see the place packed for the Kentucky Derby. Let me tell you, even crushed, the staff was on top of its game. From the hostess to our server LEXI to the food runners, what an awesome experience....Brought visitors from Cleveland and they were blown away. We feasted on clam chowder, crunchy grouper and jerk mahi. How good was the food…well we didn’t leave anything on our plates. YUMMY! I absolutely love the Sanibel Grill. If you’re reading this, trust me it’s worth the drive out.More

Three of us lifelong girlfriends were in town for a Girls' trip. We got in kind of late and after checking in to hotel, found Sanibel Grill still open. YAY!!! We are sooooo glad we did. We ordered dinner. Couple of us were kind of...picky, but Miss Natalie K took care of us every bit of the way. Made sure we got just what we wanted. Talked with us, told us some local island history and about the intriguing owner. We really wanted her to just sit down and talk with us... like an old friend, but she needed to get her other work done. The environment, the service, the food it was all wonderful. We returned a 2nd time during our 4 day stay, but we missed Natalie. :-( All was still very good, tho. We were there on 04/07/24 around 8:15pm. Natalie kept assuring us we were fine as far as their time... No rushing us out. I am rambling, but just wanted everyone to know this is a great place, and Natalie is SUPER SUPER!!! THANK YOU!!More

Great service and delicious food. Cocktails were incredibly tasty and went down too quickly! Fantastic grouper sandwiches and amazing sweet potato fries. We have never had them as they were served. My only complaint is potato skins were average and my burger was overcooked. I...didn’t send it back as time was a factor. Also, bugs were atrocious. Unfortunately I don’t have pictures since I didn’t decide to do a review until after. We would return for the sweet potato fries loneMore

This is one of my favorite spots on Sanibel. Just love the atmosphere as well as the food. Potato skins are to die for as well as the crunchy grouper. Burger is also good and buffalo shrimp. We were there to root on our Buffalo...Bills first against the Steelers (whom I also love) and then the Chiefs matchup. Unfortunately "wide right" sealed the deal for the Chiefs. Oh well maybe next year....More

We have been visiting Sanibel for over 20 years and just discovered this gem! This place had by far the best service on the island. The drinks and food were fabulous. All of the sports games were on. Big bang shrimp. Wow!!! So good!!! This...will definitely be a place we visit during every single trip. Great to see the business returning and the recovery in general. Fabulous!!!More

I hadn't reviewed this spot for 7 years, but we've been there several times since. Our most recent visit was the first since Hurricane Ian. Amazingly, nothing had changed. They only had roof damage. As before, they offer excellent food at reasonable prices with ample...portions and real-people service. Our compliments to Julie who set up our call-ahead dinner setting and Lexi, our totally professional and highly personable server. They made our return to Sanibel an outstanding anniversary dining experience.More

My wife and i visited the sanibel grill last week and i am telling you this will be a definite place to eat when we return. My wife had the broiled grouper and i had 1 doz oysters as an appetizer and then the crunchy...grouper sandwich as my meal. Everything was so delicious we actually went back and ate there again. The service was great and the atmosphere was perfect for a meal. The owner was there and we had a small convo about the area. I defintely would recommend this place to absolutely everyone.More

Thai shrimp was good along with the rice they serve. More flavor than the other rice and beans we have had. The sushi menu is very limited. Overall good experience.

For bar food it was just a little lacking. I can usually handle bar pizza, but this was bad even for bar food. Cardboard crust and the ground sausage was not ground and the flavor was a bit off. Everyone else enjoyed their food, just...the pizza was off. Wait staff was ok, not very friendly.More

We love sushi and California rolls and the Sanibel Grill didn’t disappoint! Very yummy! But please note that they only offer these yummy morsels Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. They have very good drinks and specials during happy hour too. We had oysters on the half...shell that were very good. Absolutely going back again next year during our yearly trip to Sanibel.More

My sister and I are here twice for dinner. The pizzas are amazing. She got the veggie burger the second time and I got the chicken. Chicken was a bit over cooked but the spinach dip was amazing.

The restaurant has a family dining room, oyster bar and sports bar. The grouper bites and Manhattan clam chowder were excellent. The crunchy grouper basket and grouper Rueben were both delicious. Several party members ordered sushi and thought it was well prepared. Great bar with...wide selection of beers and island inspired cocktails.More
