After a long hot day at the beach we stopped here to eat and have a cocktail. We opted to sit outside and it was perfect. We relaxed and watched the cars go by while enjoying a very good meal. There were six of us and the crab legs and shrimp were the main attractions. Delicious! Moderate to upper price... More

I brought 12 friends for a Happy Hour gathering recently. George & Wendy's has a nice selection of very reasonably priced appetizers and reduced prices on drinks for Happy Hour. You can sometimes feel for the server with a crowd this size, but Carmen could not have been nicer or more accommodating. He somehow kept track of 12 drink orders... More

The service was fast and attentive. We started with the soup of the day, a shrimp tomato bisque that was delicious! None of the food disappointed and had good flavor. Loved the... More

Top shelf waiter and service coupled with fresh and inspired dishes. Seating inside and out is well designed and comfortable. Just wonderful and it really capped off a great week on Sanibel Island. We will be back next year for sure!

We try to eat a difference restaurants on our trips and we have eaten at George & Wendy's before. The food is good, but. But the prices are a little high even for Sanibel. We had the Napoleon salad (a Caprese Salad with some lobster) and it was $15 (this was for one person). The special the night we ate... More
