This is the first time we’ve stopped in and we’ve been coming to the island for 30+ years. Wish we would have stopped in sooner. Great breakfast selections and a friendly, helpful staff. We were in on a very rainy morning and the colorful art...and wall colors just brighten up a very overcast day. Definitely plan on returning.More

This is such a cute quirky place that was recommended to us by another traveler. The grouper was to die for My coconut shrimp would melt in your mouth. Great place to eat.

My wife and I stopped in for lunch while visiting Sanibel Island. We decided we did not want a lot of food, so we just ordered nachos and a couple of drinks. The nachos were amazing, the service was terrible. Our server did not check...the n us and my wife had to get their attention just to ask for a refill.More

This was a nice surprise. We usually eat breakfast at the Island Cow but it had a fire and is closed for about two years. The breakfasts we had (four of us) were fresh and tasty. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. We...will definitely be returning here on future trips to Sanibel.More

We had a nice dinner. I am not a big fan of yellow rice which is what they serve. I has the coconut shrimp. The dipping sauce was good.

The best hamburger ever?!? I ordered the Tex-Mex burger and there are no words to describe it. The combination of melted Queso blanco and jalapeños on a hamburger just can’t be beat. The service and environment were just as good.

Had the Taco Salad very good. Tortilla chips instead of a shell. Fresh tomato salsa guacamole and sour cream over fresh lettuce. I had the ground beef which was well done and tasty. Came with a spicy- but not overpowering ranch that complimented the salad....Service was efficient. My companion had the Cuban sandwich again. And enjoyed it.More

We came there for a takeout dinner on Thursday night in August. It was 7;15 -7:20pm. I asked if the kitchen was still open because we were the only customers in the restaurant (they open from 4-8pm). Waitress was not so happy to see us...this late, no smile, no nothing. She yelled to the kitchen to confirm if they still cooking and with the same frown on her face, she told us they will take our order (5 dinners). The food was good, but we had a feeling the stuff didn't want us there 40-45 min before the closingMore

I recently ate at Blue Giraffe at Periwinkle Place. It had a nice casual atmosphere. I ordered a dish called Pasta Pacifico which was delicious, however, for what was served, I thought it was just a tad overpriced. It didn't come with any salad. The...wait staff was courteous. Overall, I would definitely eat there again.More

A 1 hour dinner took 2. This average food was overpriced, maybe because of the location. A taco salad shouldn't be mostly lettuce with 4 small pita chips to the side, a little plastic cup of bad dressing, topped with horrible service. My kid's chicken...was so dry she could barely chew it. A host, a waitress, a bartender, and a waiter serving 4 tables. We had to ask for everything after ordering . . . utensils, water, drinks, and then ask if our order got lost? The bartender didn't do anything while we were there except look at her phone, our blonde waitress was unfriendly and incredibly slow. Evidently the hostess isn't allowed to do anything other than host when no one is coming in. The lady that brought our food was more helpful, and the male waiter took care of the other 3 tables. I hope your experience goes better. My kids fries were good, but that was the only thing.More

7/7/22, The good...Wife ordered Omelet, my daughter ordered French toast. The bad...Salmon eggs Benedict, the poached eggs was way overcook and "molded" , and Hollandaise sauce needs work. And Grits have no flavor., Suggest getting a Sous Vide machine- the Joule, set at 146 F...and for the Hollandaise Sauce, start with room temp butter instead of clarified the butter. Hope this helps. BTW, Brandon our server, was great.More
