“Friendly Fun Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

We traveled to the Island when alot of the places were closed for renovations or owner vacations. We came across this place when site seeing. We had the BEST wings ever! A local artist had recommended them and she was right. She claimed they were the best on the island. The place was clean and the staff were talkative and friendly. We hope to return!

“Yummm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Arrived in Sanibel after nine pm and this was one of the only places open. We didn't have high expectations and were pleasantly surprised. Blackened grouper bites were awesome and very fresh, spinach steak salad was also. The pineapple snapper I could eat everyday! Carmen was very attentive and added to the great experience.

“Great selection and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

We ate there three times between Sep 6-15. My husband said the grouper franchise was perhaps the best fish he ever had. I had the caprese salad twice because it was awesome. I also tried the reuben which was great as well. For apps we had the onion rings which were very good. The service from all of the staff was great, very attentive. The patio is nice but unfortunately the bugs kept us inside. The restaurant is open a bit later than others so we found that convenient. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place, especially if you're a football fan!

“Fantastic lunch!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

I met a friend at George and Wendy's for lunch recently. We were greeted by the hostess as we were walking through the front door. We opted to sit at a high top in the bar area. Our server, Mary, offered us drinks and told us about the daily specials. When we asked what was her favorite, she pointed out the Tuna Nacho from the appetizer list and also suggested the Reuben. I asked if the chef would be willing to make a turkey Reuben, and I am so glad I did. It was fantastic! The rye bread was nicely browned and crispy on the outside, inside was a generous stack of roasted turkey, melted swiss cheese, sweet and creamy coleslaw (just as I like it!) with just enough thousand island dressing to make it delicious but not messy. Also on the plate were hot, crispy fries and a dill pickle spear. Chef Janis even made a trip to our table to see if we were enjoying our lunch. Mary was very attentive, refilling our drinks as needed, but giving us time to talk and catch up. I felt the prices were more than fair considering the quality of the food, 2 drinks and 2 sandwiches for $25...well worth it! A great dining experience I will be sure to repeat and share with others!

“Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Great food & large portions. A bit pricey, but almost all the restaurants in Sanibel and Captiva are overpriced, so they are in-line with, or a little better than their competition. And they gave us enough food that it helped justify the price. We arrived at about 9:30, so there was no wait. Our only real complaint was that the band in the bar area was a little too loud. One of the best meals we had all week.
