We dined at Traders once again with friends from out of town this week, and once again, the food was terrific, service was impeccable, and ambiance was delightful. The Chilean sea bass was everything that I promised my friends it would be. My husband and I, like most Sanibel locals, consider Traders to be the very best restaurant on the island -- no doubt about it!

High quality food--to perfection. Excellent servers. Very comfortable and pleasant ambiance. We enjoyed several meals at Traders, and all were wonderful. Delightful store, as well.

Sanibel is known for its welcoming beautiful seashell covered beaches. The restaurants on the island tend to be overpriced and mediocre. At Traders, especially lunch, the menu has a wide selection of palate tempting offerings at a reasonable price. The specials change daily and include fish, quiche or a sandwich. Presentation is well done with fruit or green salad. The only down-side to this restaurant is the acoustics. When it is busy, which it always is, carrying on a conversation can be a challenge. The food and the staff make up for this... A thumbs up from me!

We have visited here for both lunch and dinner and the food is some of the best around. The service is always fast and very professional with no waiting around for your drinks or food. The server was great with quick answers to any of our questions. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and made recommendations about the food. They also have a very good wine list. Make sure you call for reservations or you are in for a wait.

Traders has been around Sanibel for many years and it's thriving for good reason. The food is excellent and so is the service. I think the #3 rating on Sanibel is about right. There's competition, but Traders is always a favorite of mine...year after year. At this point it's an institution....and that's a good thing.
