Didn't expect to see the ocean, but there it was. Very nice experience. The price is a bit more than most places on Sanibel, but the quality of food and the excellent service make up for that. We had a grouper sandwich and coconut shrimp dinner , both excellent. The reason for the four stars insread of five, is the... More

It's a quaint little restaurant. Their appetizer menu was very limited and the main course was as well. We ordered the bruschetta for the appetizer and is was loaded with goat cheese. Ivan handle goat cheese, but not in the amounts served on the bread. I also ordered the Mahi-mahi and it was prepared with a curry/coconut milk. I am... More

Outside bungalow/cottage look masks a bit nicer inside dining area that attempts fine dining. Limited first course menu almost leaves little choice. I opted for the mussels which come in a broth of coconut milk with curry, cilantro and basil the dish was only luke warm-but worse there were so many pieces of broken shell what wasn't crunching in my...

The Sunset Grill is terrific choice for the above regardless if you live on the Island or a visitor. The location, one of the very, very few that offers a water view on Sanibel is immediately before the bridge crossing over to Captiva. Both the breakfast & lunch menus offer a wide choice of items. As to breakfast, their pancakes... More

Judging from the outside, you would not expect a restaurant approaching gourmet status here. At the same time pricing is at the level of other mid level restaurants. Perhaps this restaurant deserves five stars when you compare to alternatives.

We recently came back for dinner at Sunset Grill, the best dining spot for sunset. The service is always wonderful and food very good to excellent. Yes, it is somewhat pricey but compared to everything on the islands, it isn't out of line. They are very accommodating and helpful regarding wine selections and food. We came for dinner this time,... More

We keep trying to go back here as we used to visit often and used to love it. The breakfast is ok, but not off the charts. Over $10 for French toast which is essentially 2 pieces of bread and nothing additional. Eggs or bacon need to be ordered additionally. Nothing special, except maybe the view. This location has great... More

We were advised by another couple of this place. We were very impressed with the food and the service. Couldn't have asked for a better lunch outing while visiting the island.

We have been to the Sunset Grill on a couple of occasions and it only gets better. The food is delicious and the portions are ample. The seafood is always fresh and cooked to perfection. Scott, our server, is very personable and efficient. When we are in the area, we go out of our way to have a meal at... More

Had a simple lunch here as well as breakfast items late morning; nice food; atmosphere inside much nicer than expected from outside. Convenient location just before Blind Pass/the causeway to Captiva
