I had no idea they had a "dessert bar", inclusive of several distinctive ice-cream flavors. I had the Butter Pecan, but I've never had it with caramel swirls and cinnamon. The Sunburst Shrimp was amazing! The prawns were definitely fresh and the seasoning didn't overpower the dish - just added to it. (Had to take an order home!)

We had lunch here today and the service was great. We sat outside at a table with a nice umbrella. I had the crispy grouper sandwich and it was wonderful. I highly recommend this place as a great place to stop for lunch or dinner.

A friend encouraged me to try Rosie's because locals are always looking for restaurants that are affordable for "frequent flyers." We know we pay more because we are on island but an 80% increase on a hot dog?!? Really? Website menu shows $4.99...actual menu price: $8.99. I brought this to the attention of our server and was told that "they... More

We came here on a recommendation and although the food was delicious, we had a horrible experience. The owner finally came to our table after 2 hours when half of our food still hadn't arrived. He ended up comping our meal but unfortunately his attitude and lack of concern for his waitstaff will make us never revisit this place.

Called in today for lunch on our way to the Ding Darling Wildlife reserve. We sat at high table outside and enjoyed the garden surroundings. Service was prompt and friendly. We both had a salad although my wife said mine was a Man Salad as I chose the Steak and fries salad and it was very good.

We went to Rosie's three times during our week long stay on Sanibel. All three times were very good visits. On our first day we unpacked and settled in late. We were starving , We happened by Rosies and to our surprise they were open for dinner and offered an extensive menu. The fajitas were great! The staff was very... More

My husband and I are Sanibel residence and eat at Rosie's weekly. We can not understand why some restaurants have lines waiting for a table when Rosie's never has a crowd. Dinner there is always delightful. The food is excellent---my favorite is the coconut shrimp but their taco salad is also yummy. Our most recent guest enjoyed her dinner so... More

I am not sure how 600+ people give an average score between 4 and 5 based on our experience. This place has a dumpy looking interior that looks unkept....service was weak....ordered Mexican omelette, Mexican scramble, and eggs benefict....Benedict was just OK, other items including a cinnamon roll were poor quality! Very disappointing.

Been here several times, and it's still consistently good. We introduced many friends to the place. Not fine dining, but way better than most "casual dining" places
