One of my friends came to visit me and I took her here. We had Thai Shrimp and the Cranberry Nut Salad. Every bite was savory!

We had been told we would find fresh seafood at the Sanibel Grill. We didn't find that to be the case. We both had Snapper, he had a potato,I chose the sauted vegetables and we both had a salad. The salad was bagged lettuce with a slice of tomato, the fish tasted like it had been frozen and my vegetables... More

Great food and great service was our experience with the Sanibel Grill. The menu has something for everyone. We truly enjoyed the dining experience. The spinach dip is worth a try as well. It was unique in its preparation and tasted great!

Being from Wisconsin, we were looking for fish on Friday. We weren't disappointed at the Sanibel Grill. Fridays mean lobster. 1 pound for 19, 2pounds for 30. Get there early if you want the 2 pounder. Those go fast.

We all enjoyed our food here, the only criticsm is the chip oil was a bit too tasty! Otherwise all fish, burgers etc were good. Service excellent with lots of repeat fills for the boys cola.

We've visited the Sanibel Grill in the past. We knew it was a lively "sports bar" which would appeal to our friends and their teenage sons. We were greeted by Anja who has received many plaudits in the past. When I mentioned this she dealt with me in a most deliciously flirtatious manner. I knew that one chef was from... More

The room is dominated by a horseshoe-shaped bar with booths to the sides and a few tables near the front. Apparently a lot of locals stop in for a cocktail after work, a congenial atmosphere is the rule of the day. The food is not gourmet but is solid and prepared well. We always have at least one dinner there... More
