Without fail we head out with guests for a bike ride and end up stopping here for a drink and snacks. We usually sit outside as we have a small dog with us and they don’t mind if you all are well behaved! This year...More

The Ahi Tuna Nachos are amazing. We came in to watch the game and stayed for the band. They have great drink specials during the games. Highly Recommend!

We both had a grilled grouper sandwich. The grouper was caught by local fishermen. The sandwich was great and the beer was cold.

We asked for first available seating, but didn't realize that this place has three very different areas, each with a different atmosphere. The back part of the restaurant is more typical family-friendly booths and tables, the outside patio seating is more elegant, and then there's...More

I’m allergic to shellfish and this place had a menu large enough that I could choose from many options. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was upbeat and friendly. We’re coming back!

I would say, "perhaps." The restaurant has mainly booths around the perimeter, but I suppose they could set up a large table in the center of the room. It is a fairly large space.

Sanibel Seafood Grille offers truly outstanding service, atmosphere, and cuisine. We offer lunch, dinner, late night menu, and daily changing specials. The focus of all our menus is fresh, local, and fun. We also have a full bar with an extensive wine list, 20 beers on tap, lots of local, domestic and craft beer bottles, and some fun drinks lists including: mojitos, martinis, and lots of other tropical favorites. We feature live entertainment including several local musicians, bands and karaoke. Our Sanibel restaurant is also an art gallery, so your dining experience is sure to be pleasing to the eye, too. Sanibel Seafood Grille has three distinct rooms: main dining, bar (including additional dining tables, high tops and several HD TVs), and a banquet/party room. There is also beautiful outdoor seating in the lush tropical garden outside the main entrance.
