“Great tacky island restaurant and bar”
Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

You arrive at a pink low slung building with a small covered outdoor porch with tables and pink flamingo yard markers, though not those classic plastic ones. Go inside, wood beam ceilings, tall bar stools with nicknames on plaques on the backs, regular tacky dive bar decor all over, but the smell... Fresh seafood! Wait staff were attentive and our server introduced herself but told us they all worked as a team and that was true. Lot's of classic Sanibel seafood choices, shrimp, lobster, conch, (konk, as they point out on the menu), oysters, mussels, calamari, oh and fabulous wings! I had an excellent red conch chowder with just enough kick. We shared some piping hot conch fritters and perfectly hot classic chicken wings. I had the grouper sandwich, crispy on the outside, melt in your mouth on the inside. Got some of one of our groups marinara mussels, tasty and just right cooked, not tough and chewy. Also got a taste of another's crab cake. Pretty good, though a little too well cooked on the outside. Good beer choices on tap and really good prices.

Run of the mill bar food. Nothing to write home about. Burnt conch fritters and greasy French fries. Staff seemed disjointed and lost.

Had a great first meal in Sanibel - not a long line either! unlike the Lighhouse and others on the Island at Spring Break!
