“Cooked to perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

Great food, cooked to perfection! Red snapper came out hot but not over cooked. The scallops were excellent especially the coconut rum sauce. Key lime pie was delicious! Our waitress Jacqueline was friendly and very helpful, the food came out very quickly and the margaritas were yummy!

“Great seafood and atmosphere, fabulous "happy hour"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

Excellent quality and reasonable prices, especially for Sanibel. We treasure the happy hour, currently held 3 PM - 5PM, Monday through Friday. This allows for many delicious items for five dollars each, including Boom Boom shrimp, chicken quesadilla, peel and eat shrimp and a side salad. Drink prices are also reduced, and of good quality. Deserts are large and, I believe, home made. Burgers and clams also available for slightly higher prices. I must admit, we have not yet eaten off the regular menu, but it is popular with the locals and visitors. The happy hour bar menu is too good to pass up; we have tried it at least a dozen times, with no regrets. If you get the Boom Boom lightly fried shrimp, ask for the sauce on the side, it is rather spicy, like Bang Bang shrimp from Bonefish, only better. No waterfront view, but the atmosphere is very comfortable.

“Well worth the drive.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

We were staying in Cape Coral and was looking for a new place to eat. Their food was very good as well as the service. They sat us immediately even though they were very busy. Our waitress was very friendly and gave us ideas on what to eat. It isn't overly pricey like a lot of places on Sanibel. I would definitely eat here again.
