This place has some amazing food for being so small. When I first arrived I didn't think much of the place. Got their wings and was highly satisfied with them. The dead parrot wings speak for themselves. They'll leave you dead lol. Great atmosphere with a great staff where everyone helps everyone. This is my kinda place

The place is a little rough around the edges, but the food is excellent! The location is on the right, just before the bridge to Captiva Island.

It's a bar atmosphere but much higher quality food than I'd expect at a bar. I had the grouper on Caesar salad and it was an excellent piece of fish. The kids menus come on frisbees which is a fun souvenir to play with on the beach - 2 large chicken fingers or grouper fingers is what my kids chose... More

Awesome food! Best shrimp I've ever had, asked the waitress if they were local as they tasted so fresh and she told use they were caught in Fort Meyers! Mussels were great as well but I would highly recommend the shrimp!

Our family had dinner and we enjoyed it. It was packed and we had a 20 minute wait at the bar. Johnny did a good job of getting us seated as quickly as possible. The Mesquite grilled grouper is very good as are the oysters on the half shell. Noisy but nice.

Still our absolute favorite on the island. Always our first dinner out when we arrive. The grilled grouper is to die for. The kids love their chicken fingers and frys. It's always such a friendly, fun and wonderful place to spend an evening!

The Lazy Flamingo is a sports bar with really good food. After eating nothing but shrimp and fish, I decided to order the Mesquite Grilled Chicken Breast Sandwich. It is by far the best grilled chicken I have ever had. My husband likes their Grouper Sandwich. We rank this as one of the top 5 places to eat on the... More

Stopped on our way from the beach and the guy managed to find us a table even if the place was crowded. Nice food, especially the tuna.
