Description: George & Wendy Schnapp both moved to Sanibel Island in 2002, George from Buffalo and Wendy from Chicagoland. They met on the island, fell in love and married in 2007. George has been in the restaurant business for over 30 years. Together they opened George & Wendy's Seafood Grille in 2011 to provide a place where locals and visitors could come and enjoy good food, drinks and entertainment. We are open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week offering an extensive menu sure to please any palate. The Chef and General Manager work together with their team to provide a welcoming dining experience for all. George and Wendy's Seafood Grille offers one of largest Hand-Crafted Cocktail menus on the islands, 20 beers on tap, an extensive wine list and a full liquor bar. Entertainment is provided most weekday evenings and weekends. Kid meals are served on a souvenir Frisbee to enjoy. T-Shirts, hats and local artwork are also available for purchase. We are open late for dinner and offer a late night dining menu as well. It's fun for the whole family.

Traveling with friends for a birthday celebration weekend getaway, we chose "George and Wendy's " for the birthday dinner. We started at the bar where we met the owners and chatted about their recent travels while enjoying a cocktail. Nice people! We then adjourned to the dining room for a delicious dinner and a nice bottle of red wine. Our choices for the festivities were strip steak MR, seafood over linguini, baby back ribs, and chicken piccata over pasta. We all found our choices sumptuous. Our server, Dawn, was witty, well versed and attentive. We ordered a decadent slice of chocolate layer cake for desert to share, and it was presented with an individual Lava cake and candle for the BD girl. The sweets were fabulous.
Enjoy your stay on the quaint island of Sanibel and be sure to experience "George and Wendy's Seafood Grill". You will love it!

We went on Monday, August 26th for an early dining experience about 6:00 p.m. and it was wonderful!!! We had a great waiter, Tim, who timed every item just right!! He was attentive, but not pushy. My husband had the "Beef on Weck" and he said it was delicious! My friend and I shared 2 of the appetizers, the buffalo shrimp and the roasted garlic & baked brie w/raspberry & balsamic sauce. We really loved the buffalo shrimp, we ate every single scrap of it, but the brie was not baked enough? or something and it was good, just not something I would order again there. Wanted to go back again, but we just didn't make it~nice atmosphere, clean and inviting! Nice décor, wonderful service, great food, what more could you ask for?

The food was good I had tuna and my other half had the pasta. Our waiter seemed to be having a bad day or maybe he had just strange humor. After being seated and after we placed our order I overheard him offering specials to other patrons that sounded really great but we were not given the opportunity to take advantage. The restaurant did seem like a local joint and maybe that is why were treated as outsiders. Good food waitstaff needs some coaching.

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!

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.
