If you are looking for a secluded little bar close to the beach, this is a must see. Small menu but what they have is great. The drinks are good and the environment is perfect for melting your cares away. I will be frequenting this bar as often as I can.

The traffic is terrible at lunch time on Sanibel so we ventured to the only restaurant in walking distance. We walked into a cavernous dining room that was almost empty - that should have been a clue to what awaited us. Service was fine, but food wasn't. Portions were generous, but food was all bland and tasteless. What a waste of a spectacular room.

Food was horrible, service worse, very limited menu and way over priced. We should have know we were in for it when we were there dinner time and nobody else was! And even with that the service was so slow, why?? We did have breakfast the next morning only out of desperation and that also was more of the same. Really sad, the place could really be something special. Management? Lack of? I don't know, but it is sad.

We had breakfast at the Sea Star one morning. It was pretty expensive - my French Toast was 2 pieces of bread that maybe had been brushed with egg (?). We found the inside of the restaurant agreeable, but the seating and service seemed confused and awkward.

We walked in there was no one to greet us. Also my juice wasnt ever refilled. My dad asked for a refill on his coffee and it took 10 minutes for him to get a refill. Got all of orders wrong. We ordered pancakes and waffles, they have 3 tiny pieces of strawberries and 3 tiny drops of whip cream! To say that the pancakes and waffle were dry would be a complamint! I had to cut it with a knife and still had trouble! My dad got the western omlett but he ordered the mexican omlett. They got the people behind us whole table wrong! There were three other tables wrong also!! I would give negative stars if it was possible! They did give a 10% discount. They apologies to other tables but never us! As if it couldn't any worse the credit card machine didn't work!!
