“Super casual but really good!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Super casual restaurant and really good food. We ordered the chicken quesadilla, crab stuffed shrimp, calamari and the fish and chips. We had quick service and an attentive waitress. We'll be back next year.

“Average lunch”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

There are always crowds at this place so we felt we had to try it. Went for lunch and I had their turkey sandwich. Lunchmeat was not the greatest quality and sandwich was not great. Power went out for about 10 minutes on an extremely hot day while we were seated on the patio under ceiling fans. I wouldn't go back.

“Food OK. Service terrible!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

My sister and I ate lunch here during the last week of June. The World Cup Soccer match was going on that week. Hostess-in-training was very sweet. HOWEVER, our waitress, July, couldn't take her eyes off the TV while taking our order! I attempted to get her attention by pointedly asking her who was playing, and she answered me with the back of her head to us! She never came by to refill our drinks. She never attempted to make conversation or establish a connection. Horrible customer service! I complained to the restaurant's "trainer", and she told me that July was one of her best waitresses. Holy cow! If she's one of their best, I would hate to have been waited on by one of their worst! Doesn't say much for the trainer either, does it? Our previous meals at this restaurant were just okay as well. Food was average. Service was not stellar. This restaurant's servers needs some serious coaching and training!!! We won't be back.

“Great food not great service”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Our family comes to Sanibel every year and it was unanimous we eat here the first night. Food was awesome but server not so much. Disappointing but we will try again as we're here for 10 more days.
