I have to say I was surprised by this restaurant. It's somewhat typical in decor and atmosphere for Sanibel, but the food was amazing--and it was just lunchtime! Quite possibly the BEST crab cakes I've ever put into my mouth, and even the sides were fantastic. Prices weren't too bad either, especially considering how delicious the food was. Excellent service to boot!

What a delicious meal! From the first cocktail - Marguerita, the boom boom appetizer, on to the Coconut Shrimp and plantains.....this restaurants serves some of the best on the island. Even the bread, on the side, was outstanding. The cocktails had ample alcohol.....you knew you were having an adult beverage! The best Coconut Shrimp I have had in the Southwest Florida area. Oh, and don't forget the Crab Bisque......unforgettable!!!! Only problem was how full and stuffed I felt when I left.......just couldn't stop myself! The service was wonderful......treat yourself to this wonderful new spot!

Had dinner there tonight. Had eaten there once last year, were not impressed, but heard it had improved. At best it is an average restaurant, very, very noisy, and overpriced for the quality. Many better choices on Sanibel.
