We were driving toward a beach in Sanibel when hunger overtook us. By sheer providence, we saw the sign for the Greenhouse Grill. After checking out the menu, we took a seat and ordered. The Ceasar salad with blackened grouper was the best meal I'd had during our week in the Ft. Myers/Naples area, trumping meals we'd enjoyed in some high-end restaurants in Naples. My wife's order was also excellent. The wine that was recommended was outstanding, and the service was friendly and efficient. Overall, great food at a great value.

I think the waiter was also the cook. He pushed and pushed the daily special which just felt like he wanted to move the daily special and not actually giving objective recommendation. The veal was teh worst, hardest veal i've ever had. And it was ridiculously expensive to boot. the interior is gaudy as hell with walls made of styrofoam that are trying to look like 'rustic italian' or something. horrible.

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.
