“Tracey is the worse waitress on the island.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Visit Jerry's whenever we come to Sanibel. Just spent a week here and dined three times here. Kathy is an awesome waitress and pours a mean Mimosa. Leaving today we stopped for a quick breakfast and road supplies. Tracey apparently forgot she was working, waited 15 minutes for service and then barely received any. No inquiry on toast with breakfast ( we received what she put in) no carafe of coffee ( other tables received this) and in the end she literally "bum rushed" me at register for her tip. That was the only time she was attentive, getting her tip. Will think twice before returning here-there are plenty if dining options on island.

“Decent and reasonably priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

You might not expect a restaurant in a supermarket, but you'll find this one in Jerry's market. We had breakfast there and the food was good. It reminds me of an upscale truck stop. Good, basic food, with a gulf coast twist. Unlike other restaurants on the island, it's reasonably priced! The service was good. Seems like a place the locals would eat. I will eat here again.

“A really quick snack with the family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

We are in Sanibel at our condo for the long holiday weekend joined by family for a relaxing vacation. We needed a quick eat out place the other night and Jerry's was the choice. We had a very good quick meal, adults and kids, which included salad bar trips, drinks and sandwiches. All in all it was very good. When you go ask for Missy or Tina, they are the best. Everything was as ordered and all left happily full. Give this a hearty recommendation. Check the hours if you're late eaters, as we are. Enjoy the island life.

“Stop here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

We visited here almost as much as the beach! Great place to get a salad, full salad bar at $6.99/pound, you can feed 2 for under $10! (did that 4 times for dinner). They have pretty much anything you'd need or ran out of. Had the crispy grouper sandwich... was huge and excellent. Lowest price on the island. Food, beer and wine were all reasonably priced. We stopped at Publix on the way in, but had we known about Jerry's we would not have bothered.

“Great go-to full restaurant and market”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Sanibel restaurant prices are on the pricey side so Jerry's quickly became our go-to place for dining. Over a 10 day period, we ate there 3 times, the most of any of the available choices. EVERYTHING was delish! The Fish Tacos ( which were an appetizer) were filling enough to be an entree. All of our selections were of generous portions. Best deals were the Seafood Entrees all of which came with warm rolls, the day's vegetables ( steamed) , a choice of potato or even rice AND a trip to the Salad Bar all for $16 or under a person! Don't miss out on the Pina Colada cake which hubby pronounced " the best cake I've ever eaten". He's generally not a cake fan, I am and let me tell you...it was undeniably the BEST cake I have ever had! Huge serving. HUGE!!
Jerry's is also a market that is a, again, HUGE!!! Be prepared for tall prices with market items though, unlike the meal costs.
I would STRONGLY recommend this eatery, especially if you are on a budget! BTW, this would be a great family restaurant for cost reasons.
