“Best meal of our vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

Wow!! Three words BEEF ON WECK!! My husband and I have been to George and Wendys a couple of times in the past and have been relatively happy with our meals but this time I ordered the beef on weck and it was amazing. You know a meal is good when a). You think about that meal all day long and continue to bring it up everytime your husband asks you what your thinking about. B). You try to rearrange your vacation so that you can come back again and C). You make a plan to get hired on staff there when you retire so you can learn the secret recipe.
I should also mention the hostess at the door made us feel very welcomed and the service was wonderful.
So glad we found this little gem on the island and that meal!

“Great Sports Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

This is our default place. Whenever we can't decide where to go, let's go to George and Wendy's. The bar scene is very lively and the bartenders very friendly. Great spot for first time visitors and for natives. For NFL games the bar is packed and lively.
Food is very good with many of the fish dishes being excellent. This is a very casual place for families. Also have live music which is fun.

“Came back again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

We came back again on our return visit! Just as good as last year! The wings are true buffalo wings. Amazing flavor! We ate a bunch of appetizers this time and all were to die for. Love this place! Great good at a good price!

“Excellent fist tacos and wraps”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

This place is across the street from Over Easy Café. We went to Over Easy at lunch time and the wait was more than we wanted. Went to George & Wendy's and not sorry that we did. It took awhile to get the waitress to our table, but once we did, everything went smoothly. Our fish taco and shrimp wrap was very good.

“A true gem with wonderful staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

I cannot say enough about Carmen and Ronnie - they make you feel right at home and are such a pleasure to talk to. The best wait staff i've seen in a long time. The food here is so delish! Went here after arriving on the island after a long flight and countless hours at the airport and the wings hit the spot! So good, not greasy or too saucy. The shrimp are great too. The seafood pasta is wonderful as is the simple hamburger. We were here twice and had a great time...they have great live music 3 or 4 nights a week. The paintings on the walls are so interesting, had a great time looking at the art. You can eat outside or in and you will always be greeted with a smile and a warm welcome. I will be back next time I'm on Sanibel.
