We got there a few minutes before they opened & they were happy to let us in. The food was good & they had no problem letting us order off the dinner menu at lunch time. Will return for sure on our next vacation.

Thank you for the kind review. It was great to see people at the door before we open. We are hoping our lunch business increases, so great families like yours get to eat in a lively environment. Our lunch menu is being updated shortly, and will include some great specials. We hope to see you visit again and have a great vacation here on Sanibel. Check out our website for some great deals and coupons.

We have eaten at a lot of the restaurants on the island. This is our favorite from this trip! You must try it when visiting Sanibel.

Thanks for the awesome review. We appreciate all the great reviews we've received since opening in January, and we also use the "not so great" reviews to see where we can improve. We do plan on shifting up a gear in a never ending pursuit to be consistent and make our guests feel like they have arrived at one of the better restaurants on the islands. Thanks again and have a pleasant stay in Sanibel.

This has to be the hidden gem on the island! My husband had the grouper and he was pleased. I had the scallops and they were to die for!! I could not believe people weren't lined out the door to eat here. The best of the best!!!
