We always sit at the bar. Bart is an awesome bartender. Always happy, eager to please and extremely attentive. The escargot in mushroom caps is a favorite. The crunchberry salad is good, the crab soup excellent. Shishito peppers are a wonderful appetizer. Parking under the building keeps your vehicle cool. We frequent when Bart is working, knowing impeccable service and... More

This restaurant is on the back side of Timbers and we were sent here by locals. The kitchen is actually the same one as Timbers restaurant, while the prices are significantly less. Trust me there is no skimping on the quality of food. I had a grouper dinner and my cousin had the steak. We were both beyond pleased with... More

I ordered the special, a lobster and shrimp pasta. It was average at best, the place was noisy and the service un-attentive (water please!)

We actually went there three times during our week on Sanibel Island. Once for an early dinner and then twice to sit at the bar and have appetizers and drinks. Food was good, atmosphere great and a nice mix of locals and tourists.

Entered the Sanibel Grill and was met by the hostess, Grace. I told her I was here to watch the Baltimore Orioles and would need a table where I could see the game. She directed me to a high table close to the door where I could see the game if I looked over my right shoulder. I told her... More

My wife and I had dinner at the Sanibel Grill. The rum drinks were killer, the food was good, but the best part of it all was our waitress, Roxanne. She was very personable yet always professional and always accommodating. I would advise everyone on Sanibel Island to enjoy a dinner at the grill and to specifically request Roxanne, you... More

Our family of four had dinner here, and it was one of our better dining experiences on Sanibel. We were there on a Thursday, when sushi is available, and it was excellent and very fresh. Raw oysters, fish tacos and a fried grouper basket were also excellent. There were very limited options for our vegetarian, but that seems to be... More

This is an expensive restaurant with an upscale menu. We had the lobster / crab combo appetizer. Skip it, they should remove it from the menu. We were told ithad large chunks of crab and lobster, this was not accurate, the crab was shredded and the lobster small pieces. The mango sauce overpowered it a bit. The wilted spinach salad...
