Coming from Manhattan, we are used to good Italian food and Greenhouse did not disappoint. This was the best meal we had while in Sanibel. We stayed for 6 days, and tried a different place every night but this beat the rest. We went as a family, and everyone had a delicious meal. The appetizers were generous and delightful; we had the caesar salad, crab cakes, and Mediterranean plate. The seafood was incredibly fresh and cooked perfectly. The eggplant parmesan was delightful, and one of the best ever per our vegetarian companion.
Our server was knowledgeable and friendly, but never lingered too long. He was the perfect host, and gave great recommendations. The restaurant is in a strip mall, but don't be fooled. It is a complete pleasure to eat there! We will certainly be returning for more on our next trip.

No idea what time this gem closes,but we arrived a little after 8 and after getting past my Boston accent the owner graciously let us in for a fabulous meal for three very hungry and tired travelers. The service was fast and courteous. The food was hot and fresh. We completely LOVED THE FRIES. Best in the state if you ask me.. This is a must do for a quiet and relaxing place to eat.

This is a must eat on the island. The food is very fresh and delicious! It doesn't look like a restaurant from the road but it is well worth it to stop in! You get crusty fresh baked bread as well.

The Greenhouse Grill is an excellent choice for a pleasant meal where you can relax, chat, and have a nice time. We were quickly greeted and advised to select any table we desired. Within a few moments we were relaxed and looking forward to a pleasant lunch.

The atmosphere is charming, sort of "beach Italian" but without the over-produced decor one sometimes sees in both tropical and Italian restaurants. The music is perfect and adds to the charm. The menu options are wide enough to where just about anybody should be pleased.

Our server took care of us perfectly and was quite helpful. My associate and I both chose grilled grouper sandwiches. These are decent sized, not too large, not to small, and served on panini. The arrived in a prompt manner. The only drawback, and this is minor, is that the fish did not have a "grille" flavor. It was a bit flat. However, the accoutrements more than made up for that.

We look forward to returning to the Greenhouse Grill (technically it should be spelled "grille" as grills are on cars and grilles are used for cooking) for an evening dinner and would recommend this to friends. Try it, we think you will like it.

While staying on Sanibel Island last week, we not only discovered an abundance of wildlife, miles of bike trails, and long, lovely beaches, but an exquisite little restaurant, Greenhouse Grill, on Periwinkle Way.
With both indoor and outdoor seating, this gem offered tempting appetizers, a delightful variety of salad and sandwich selections, an abundant choice of dinner entrees, and divine "grand finale" desserts. Our favorite luncheon salad was the poached pear (overheard to be a good choice while we were browsing in a nearby bookstore).
A friendly staff, quiet music, and a Mediterranean decor made this a top choice for us during our stay. Be sure to wend your way to this wonderful restaurant while enjoying the delights of Sanibel Island.
