My wife and I just returned from a 2-week vacation on Sanibel Island where for more than 15 years we've stayed at The Shalimar on West Gulf. Chet and Nancy, owners of The Shalimar, opened The Sandbar last year--and it was very good then. It's even better now. During our stay, we at there 3 times: once for lunch and twice for dinner. Each time it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The waitstaff was very attentive and professional--and nice on top of all that. The food was creative and delicious. My wife diverged from seafood one evening and had a filet she pronounced delicious. I enjoyed the coconut shrimp one evening and tile fish another. I'd never heard of tile fish, but it was prepared very well and was delicious. We tried the Boom Boom Shrimp as an appetizer at lunch. Very interesting--and very tasty. We'll do it again.
All in all, The Sandbar is proving itself to be a real winner on West Gulf--and it's so convenient for those of us who are lucky enough to stay at The Shalimar.
