This is a very cute little place with a nice outside porch for dining and nice inside dining area. Beautiful view, excellent food. My favorite in Sanibel.

The appearance of the restaurant belays the incredibly delicious master chef prepared meals served. The menu is limited but well choiced. The prices equal the quality of the food and service. Make reservations -seating is limited , especially outside.

Our first time to try this place and it did not disappoint! We were greeted upon entering with a smile and friendly demeanor that made us feel very welcome here. It is small inside with less than ten tables with large windows at each so...each table has a view, there was seating at a small bar area, and a few tables on the outside porch as well, so plan accordingly with reservations. Nice sunset view here for a romantic dinner. Their menu is limited but don’t let that fool you, the food is exceptional,highly recommended the grouper and the lobster dishes. They have a very expansive selection of wines. Desserts are amazing, several made fresh in house. The apple crisp and cheesecake were our favorites. We visited here twice within a week, service by Heather and Tracy was top notch each time. This will be a go to place to eat for us from now on!More

Omg, one of the best meals I had on the island. I still think of those eggs benedict. The poached eggs were perfect, the smoke salmon plentiful, then the hollandaise and capers topped it off. Now my husband had the spanish burrito. He loves them....Me, not so much. Both were served with perfectly crunchy hash browns, then mine topped off with a delightful Mimosa.More

My wife and I had a middle of afternoon meal on a Saturday. It was not crowded, so we sat outside. The food was good, but the quantity was lacking. Seemed a bit overpriced for the building and atmosphere.

AH MA ZING! My husband and I are creatures of habit, we rarely try new places when we have our favorites. However after several recommendations, we decided to try Sunset Grill this time. OH MY GOD! This place was awesome! The view, the staff and...of course the food was ON POINT! I got the Key Lime French Toast….🤤🤤! It was one of the best breakfast I have ever had! Tart, but sweet, light yet fulfilling,. I cannot wait to go back down, this is our new favorite place for breakfast!More

Tasty food although a bit on a bland side. Friendly and attentive service. We stopped for lunch and had a grilled grouper sandwich, seafood quesadillas, and coconut shrimp. Seafood quesadillas were the best item we tried that day.

We’ve been going to Sanibel for more than 15 years and somehow have missed this place. It’s limited in seating, but accepts reservations. Beautiful gulf side view and can see the sunset from there. The meal was wonderful! Nice sized portions! Delicious! Great service. We...had the pan seared scallops and the filet. We tried three different desserts! All were excellent! I would highly recommend! a little pricey, but worth it.More

Been to Sanibel many times but finally made it to the Sunset Grille, based on TripAdvisor rating and reviews. It truly was the best meal we have ever had on Sanibel. We had the filet mignon and the salmon for dinner, as well as the...shrimp cocktail appetizer. Creme Brûlée for dessert. We agree with previous reviews that we wanted to lick our plates clean - everything was that good. We are from New England and are spoiled by our many great restaurants, but the Sunset Grille blew them all away. Can't wait for our next visit to Sanibel and to the Sunset Grille. Service was attentive as well. Sat on the patio.More

Sunset grill is probably the best meal you will get in Captiva. It’s got a small inside and a decent amount of outside tables. Make reservations between 6-8 or you won’t get a table. This seems pretty common at many’s places though. Our server Robin...was great. We were traveling with another family and she took great care of the kids. The food is fantastic.! We had a bunch of great apps for the table, the wood fired shrimps were great. I got a special which was coconut and macadamia nut encrusted mahi, it was amazing.More
