My mom and I stopped here for dinner one night on a girls getaway weekend. It wasn't my moms scene - it was a dive bar. But the food was GOOD. Super delicious peel 'n eat shrimp and conch chowder. YUM! If you like a laid back atmosphere, good beer and good food, this is your place!

We had a recommendation from our fishing guide to try this restaurant and their grouper sandwich. We were not disappointed. Very good sandwich!

Great service here...they share responsibility for tables so your always being served well. Food is good, great seafood...clams, shrimp, chowder. Serve you on plastic so its not frilly!! More of a bar atmosphere & fun, never ever had anyone get out of place & you can take your family with no problem.

Sanibel Island, Fl is chock full of restaurants and this is one of the really good ones. It's primarily a bar with food, and has a typical sports theme going on in the decor. Great selection of beer that sadly i couldn't indulge in because I was driving. I ordered the conch (konk!) chowder, followed by the burger. My wife... More

Great menu selection with the freshest fish, burgers, salads, soups. Very casual and quaint. Ice cold beer. The ribs are an unexpected surprise, but the best menu item is the mesquite grouper cooked anyway you like.

My husband and I always hit The Lazy Famingo as soon as we make it across the causeway to Sanibel. It has great food and a fun atmosphere.
