This was a cute little restaurant, a bit off the main road, with limited seating, a bar, and a limited menu at reasonable prices. We just wanted pizzas one night, so we asked a few locals where to go and they all suggested Great White. We had two large pies, one with peppers and mushrooms and the other with sausage. Being from the New York metro area, having the best pizza in the country, these pies were just OK, but they did satisfy our craving for a pie.

I have found it difficult to find pizza outside of NJ/NY that quite lives up to what we are used to. But almost every vacation, we try some local pies, just in case we should find NJ doesn't have the best pizza. Great White was acceptable, but next time on the island, I would try somewhere else.

Place was clean, unfortunately when we got there, there was a family who had out of control children, they screamed and screamed and screamed! I wish the staff would have asked them to tone it down. Other than that it was great. The waitress (an older woman) was like the energy bunny...she was go, go, go...I don't know where she gets the energy! Food was very good. We were four, we had a buffalo chicken sandwich, sausage pizza, gyro sandwich and a wanna be Greek salad (which tasted better than it looked). Overall it was a good experience.

Small place but fun! We had a couple cold beers, shared a salad (not really a "greek salad"), played a few arhade games, and ordered a super yummy pizza to-go (garden pizza). Service was on point, value/dollar, and it was casual and fun!! We will stop here again!

We were told to stop at this spot by the resort owner, and boy was he right. We asked for the best pizza on the island and this was his recommendation. The pizza was as good as we've had, and we always make one pizza night on vacations. They have nearly 30 beers on tap to choose from and the service is fast and casual. The only down side we noticed was that the dining rooms were a bit warm. They need more fans or better AC. I would definitely go there again.

Another restaurant in Sanibel where the locals go! Main food served in pizza but other items are available. We haven't had a bad meal at The Great White Grill and usually go there more than once on our yearly week long visit to Sanibel. Have been here for both lunch and dinner. Although the restaurant is not large, the food and friendly staff make this place special.
