My wife and I spent a couple days at the resort and have to say, the service was great. Nice to know, you can run a tab, while enjoying you time around the pool and or beach.

My co-workers and I went to a conference at the Sundial at the end of June. On the last day of the conference we decided to sit outside and enjoy the view of the water and pool. It was so relaxing before our long drive home to Jacksonville. We each got something different. I got the special which was chicken with vegetables and it was excellent. One of my co-workers got the fish tacos and the other got chicken wings. All of our dishes were excellent. In fact, I spoke with manager Paul Cuppy to let him know that it was a pleasant surprise to have such great food at a resort restaurant. He then told me that they had been serving our lunches each day of the conference. Everyone at the conference raved about our meals at lunch.

The facilities are beautiful. Our two bedroom suite overlooked the gulf and the screened in porch was so nice. Marina and the other staff were very helpful in resolving any issues we had with booking/receipts. We go to this conference every year and next year we will eat at the restaurant more often.

Go for the drinks and the view. Keep the eating light and you should be happy at the new Sundial on Sanibel. This is just about the best place to see the water and have a happy hour.

We dined at the new Sea Breeze Café in the newly remodeled Sundial Resort on Sunday night. The outdoor seating on the second floor level is covered and gives a full view of the Gulf of Mexico. Our waiter, Joey, greeted us with a very warm welcome and smile - a great way to start. Service all around was well done.

Although this was a light dinner for us, we found the dishes to be prepared well, especially the salmon and mahi mahi that were both grilled to perfection. The salmon topped a really crisp and clean Caesar salad, while the mahi was accompanied by very nicely grilled vegetables. And the pricing was very reasonable - a pleasant surprise for the rare restaurant on Sanibel with a truly direct Gulf view.

The new owners of the Sundial still are in process of the updates, but what has been completed is very nicely done, including the new lobby, bar, and the indoor Waterside Restaurant - offering the same view as the outside diners. Understand, our 5 star review is considering this to be a café style outdoor service. Our next visit to the Waterside dining room will be rated upon a different scale.
