Great place for a nicer upscale dinner on Sanibel. Excellent service and equally great food! We enjoyed the fresh seafood and the creative ways they prepared it. Our server had a great sense of humor, keep our group well fed and well entertained!

After spending a beautiful day on Sanibel, we had dinner at Traders, and were not disappointed! We were there on a Wednesday evening, and the place was packed. That did not affect our service one bit. We started with the Gumbo, our entrees were 2 of the evening specials, stuffed shrimp with Lobster Ravioli, and a 8 oz. filet. It was all wonderful, and our server called the bread they serve "Devil Bread" and I can see why! I could not stop eating it, and the dipping oil that comes with it. If you are on or near Sanibel, put this restaurant on your list! You won't be disappointed...

Food was excellent. Sea bass was perfect. Only flaw was our wine glasses were empty when they delivered dinner and we ordered more, but we were almost finished by the time they were delivered. Everything else was excellent and will definitely be back next year.

This place was highly recommended by a local and it was hard to get a reservation. So, our expectations were high and, sadly, not met. Like other restaurants we've tried here, the menu is overambitious. Seafood is encrusted in something, steaks are drowning in cheese sauce, garlic masked potatoes seem to be the only vegetable served here. The waitstaff was pleasant and efficient, although I can't say the same for the bartender who needs a lesson in serving Guinness from the tap. The decor is unpleasant and the art on display downright ugly. Unless you like over-fussy food and tacky surroundings, don't spend your time or money here.
