Great food very casual .. don't know if they are affiliated with Timbers or not .. but we love them both. Of course we love seafood. Definitely try them for lunch.

The Sanibel Grill has long been a must-visit for my wife and I when we visit Sanibel but I've never written a review. Everything from the service to the food is excellent. I always have a cup of NE clam chowder every time. It is thick and some of the best clam chowder I've ever had. The rest of the... More

We have been going to Sanibel for a week every summer for 7 years. We would not miss Sanibel Grill, sometimes we go twice. Their crunchy grouper basket is the best. My kids love the pizza.

My family has been vacationing in Sanibel since I was born, and Sanibel Grill is always on our must eat list. The gumbo is delicious. I had the lobster tail this time which was amazing. The grill is a fun environment and a great place to grab a drink and watch a game. We also visited Timbers for happy hour... More

The Sanibel grill is a must visit when you go to Sanibel. The food is great, the service is wonderful. The staff is friendly and hard working. The Owner is rude and acts as if he is one of the celebrities he stalks to get his picture taken with. He is there all the time. We and most others ignore... More

The food here is wonderful. Everyone in our party enjoyed what they ordered. The biggest surprise to us was how good their pizza is. I've read the pizza places on Sanibel are not the best. The grouper is a must here too. Those that ordered it in our party devoured it. The service though is lacking something fierce. It is... More

We called the restaurant and were told we could put our name on a list 30 minutes before we arrived. We did that, and when we arrived, our name was not on the list. The flippant hostess told us we must have called The Timbers next door. We didn't and told her who had answered the phone. She clearly did... More
