“Nice evening out for most anyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Nothing to say beyond what has already been mentioned in the positive reviews here, except to say Tim, our waiter, was pleasant and helpful. He recommended an addition to a plate on the menu and was correct (IMO) on adding the blackened shrimp. Food and service both were outstanding for causal, mid-priced menu. Kudos to the owners for an apparently well-run establishment and thanks for the pleasant evening out.

“Sub par food & service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

We read some good reviews about this place and were quite disappointed.

We ordered grouper tacos and initially our order came out wrong so we needed to send it back. Once we got our food, the grouper was very fishy tasting. Not sure if it wasn't fresh or just not good but either way it was disappointing, especially compared to all of the other places we ate.

To top it off, my side salad that I ordered came out after we received our check. There was little attention to detail and the food left much to be desired.

“Surprisingly wonderful meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the entire experience at this restaurant. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly; he actually appeared to be enjoying his job. He recommended dishes for each of us based on our conversation, and we were all thrilled with the taste, the portions and the price. They even have a gluten free menu section, and the gluten free Chicken Marsala was to die for. From the drinks to the bread to the entree there was not one iota of disappointment. Three adults ate a huge amount of food and drinks for about $75. I cannot stress how much food we got for that price. I had a chocolate martini that was deliciously decadent. I wish I could remember the name of our waiter as he was just amazing.
I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Sanibel! They not only have a sit down restaurant, they also have a place where you can sit at the bar and eat. Casual attire is more than acceptable in this establishment!!

“This is what I was looking for!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

George & Wendy's was referred to us by the last Queenie's ice cream scooper on earth over at Dolce Tesoro. And we are so glad that we tried it. George is from Buffalo and had a few Buffalo offerings on the menu, which we didn't try. He brought out our appetizer (crab and artichoke dip) and looked to be a very busy guy but had time to say a few words. The place has a great friendly ambience, just like Buffalo, and just what we were looking for in a vacation experience. Angelo, our server, was great. This might be one of the places where the locals eat, even though it is on the beaten path. This is not a gourmet eatery, but had good thoughtful selections and the food is of good quality. Have a drink at the bar where you'll find some more busy friendly folks.
