“We loved it!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

From the first moment we walked in we felt like this was going to be a great dinner. Carmon the manager was such a delight. We had several long conversations with him. We found we both love good wine. We arrived on Wednesday and decided to try the special that was Snow Crab legs. They were great. They first served us wonderful warm sourdough hot bread with a oil, pesto and pine nut dipping oil. It was so yummy! I even tried the drink special which was a Carmel Apple Martini. Mary was our server and honestly we could not of ask for better service. We might just have to come here again before we leave this area!

Excellent server Sally with a great personality and very attentive to our requests. And the food was great. Especially liked the lemon chicken with rice soup appetizer and grouper tacos. We'll be back.

“A good seafood selection in Sanibel !”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

We ventured out to Sanibel Seafood on a recommendation from a friend as well as Trip Advisor reviews. Located right off the main street on Sanibel ( Periwinkle ) it's a quick drive from anywhere on the island. We were pleasantly surprised with the menu choices and so were our three teens, thank goodness. I had the ahi tuna dish and it was well prepared. My wife and daughter had the lobster mac and cheese which was good but lacked much lobster. Our boys had fish and tried and true chicken fingers. Our server Torrey really added to the pleasant experience. Overall it's a safe bet with above average food and portions.

“Good service, bland food”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We decided to try George and Wendy's on this trip to Sanibel. It always seems busy. The service was great! I can not say the same for the food. We ordered peel and eat shrimp and an order of grouper bites. The grouper bites were beer battered and lacked any kind of flavor. A little spice would have made these better. The peel and eat shrimp was served cold ( which in fine)and there was no flavor ( no old bay or similar seasoning). The cocktail sauce was rather bland as well. I think they forgot the horseradish sauce making is a catsup cocktail sauce.
