This is a casual restaurant with very good dinner options. They have live music as well. The restaurant has a bar area, slightly separated from dinning area so music won't interrupt dinning. Our server, Torrey, was phenomenal. Kind and courteous, also very knowledgeable of items in the menu. So if looking for a medium budget option , this is a... More

Been going for years, although its still a good dinner choice for Sanibel, there are now other choices to choose from. Its kind of hit and miss. Sometimes the fish is really fresh, other times not. Sometimes the portions are larger, sometimes not. I hope they can regain their level of consistency, because they deserve it. This last meal was... More

I had the haddock sandwich both nights we went to George and Wendys, it was very good. Recommended items are the burger, prime rib or haddock sandwich! Also, the sour dough bread they serve the table is amazing...I thought the wait staff was very interactive. A server that was not even working our table came over and chatted multiple times... More

I'm hooked on the pina colada snapper- it's super sweet and I love it so much I haven't branched out to try anything else on the menu on the 3 times I've been there. This trip we had a group of 7- were able to get seated right away. Everyone liked their food- my husband loved his tuna nachos- and... More

A week on Sanibel is not enough for all the great eating!!! Ate at George & Wendy's our last night. My favorite meal of the week. I know everyone has their own tastes but I'd been waiting for scallops all week and the blackened scallops did not disappoint. My wife and sister in law has delicious meals too, by the... More

Service was great! Food was really good, but the grouper on my sandwich was a little stronger/fishy than grouper is typically. Overall, other food -- tropical salad w grilled chicken -- yum! Seared tuna salad also great! I enjoyed the vibe of the restaurant-- musician was just starting as we were leaving, but he was clearly talented & I would... More

Last night on the island 12 of us sat at the edge of the bar where the noise of children didn't interfere with the diners. Two of us slipped out to eat in the quiet of the dining room - the grandparents, leaving the sons and wives to do the kid meals. I had the tomato stacked lobster and basil... More

If you're traveling with a dog, this restaurant does a really good job of making sure our four legged family member also enjoys their dining experience. Always come here when I'm on Sanibel.

We came at late night hour as family of four. We listened to music while waiting for the food. The food came out hot and delicious. My linguine was superb with generous portion of scallops, clams, shrimps, mussels... Our children loved the crispy chicken wings and chicken marsala was so juicy, comparing to another restaurant we visited the day before.... More
