Nice spot for a relaxed, no frills lunch. 5 long benches outside for people to eat at, otherwise just high Ron tables to stand and eat. Dogs and wings were good, as were the milkshakes. Would definitely eat here again!

The kids and I loved coming here for ice cream. The portions are huge and the service is great. The ice cream is wonderful and there are many choices. They don't have much seating though but it's worth it. We heard the food was great...More

VERY casual and super fun place to bike to. We like sitting at the picnic tables outside so our dog can join us. The hotdogs are great as are the french fries

One of my favorite places in the island. Great very friendly staff. Try the slaw dog and my new favorite ice cream combo, key lime pie and toasted coconut. Doesn't get any better.

Our third trip back and as good or better than before. A friend recommended the grouper sandwich and it was excellent! The rest of my family enjoyed their selections. Great place, fun island vibe, definitely try!

A Sanibel tradition with good local fare(one of the few on the island). The Haddock basket is the best!

The burgers are really good and the service is exceptional for what the restaurant looks like from the outside, and the chili dog was especially good and the ice cream is also good

If you want hot dogs, this is the place to go. Well prepared, reasonably priced. Also has Olaf ice creams and shakes. Little outdoor seating in the side, a bit of sprucing up would go a long way. Best for take out or stand up...More

Stopped in to get a quick bite. Everything was good but too expensive. There were 5 of us and we only got 1 hot dog each plus fries and onion rings and drinks. The bill was over $80.00, for hot dogs!!! Yikes. We've never been...More
