“Overpriced, food bland, service slow!”
Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

Ate/drank here multiple times during our stay at sundial--cocktails are $12 each after tip and are small and not very tasty. Need more variety and larger cup size. Are the grouper sandwich and grouper tacos---bland and blah. Tacos needed something other than the pico/salsa mixture on top. My kids got three ice cream bars. Prepackaged, not made in house and they were $18!!!! Crazy! Service for lunch was very slow. Canned soft drinks too--come on--get fountain drinks. Not sure convenience of food/drinks worth it!

“Nice to have a bar & restaurant on site, not all sanibel hotels have one”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Did not eat here but nice to be able to get drinks poolside. Very reasonably priced drink specials and friendly staff.

“Okay but Nothing to Write Home About”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

I ordered the Mahi Mahi and it was dry and blah. My son ordered the flat bread pizza and it was a bit better but nothing to compare to the prices paid for the meal. I was a bit disappointed.

“Just okay”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

They have a nice Kid's menu at a reasonable price. Grilled chicken with fresh fruit was really good. Burger was good. Some items are overpriced for what they are. Fish tacos....you had to look for the fish because it was covered with slaw and salsa...Happy hour drinks are very reasonable but the mixes they use for the exotic drinks leave a bad taste in your mouth....

“Friendly Wait Staff, Convenient”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

We ate here the first night of our stay at the Sundial on Sanibel. The waitress was awesome, sorry I don't know her name! I had the grilled mahi-mahi, very good, as was the Mojito. There are beautiful views from the outside balcony tables.
