This place will suprise you. Not much on atmosphere, buy the food is great. My wife had the fried shrimp and I had a New York strip. Strip was good, she said the fried shrimp was the best she has had. Service was great too.

Other than being interrupted numerous times while placing my order, the service was fast, though lacking in friendliness, the drive-thru person needs to be trained in "people skills" and "the art of silence". Please instruct employees to NOT interrupt your future customers. It's not going...More

George & Wendy Schnapp both moved to Sanibel Island in 2002, George from Buffalo and Wendy from Chicagoland. They met on the island, fell in love and married in 2007. George has been in the restaurant business for over 30 years. Together they opened George & Wendy's Seafood Grille in 2011 to provide a place where locals and visitors could come and enjoy good food, drinks and entertainment. We are open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week offering an extensive menu sure to please any palate. The Chef and General Manager work together with their team to provide a welcoming dining experience for all. George and Wendy's Seafood Grille offers one of largest Hand-Crafted Cocktail menus on the islands, 20 beers on tap, an extensive wine list and a full liquor bar. Entertainment is provided most weekday evenings and weekends. Kid meals are served on a souvenir Frisbee to enjoy. T-Shirts, hats and local artwork are also available for purchase. We are open late for dinner and offer a late night dining menu as well. It's fun for the whole family.
