Try the flamingo bread and caesar salad with any entree. Hands down the best burger on the island. Cold beer, lots of television sets and they tolerate large families with kids cheerfully. A traditional go-to place for islanders and you.

If we had known the utensils would be plastic, the napkins a roll of paper towels and the menu devoid of vegan options we would have gone elsewhere.

We visited on a Tuesday evening and were seated outside on the patio. The LF has great outdoor inflatable Christmas decorations all along the front, on the patio roof and along the pathway to the entry door-all loved by our 3 yo . Our waitress took our beer order and delivered quickly. We ordered the kid's pasta with butter and... More

Not knowing Sanibel Island too well, we stumbled upon the Lazy Flamingo 11 whilst looking for a suitable diner for lunch. The four of us ordered a crab sandwich, fried shrimp, fried oysters and jerk tuna along with excellent French fries respectively. We all thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and our waitress was most efficient. We ate on the veranda but... More

Admittedly I had low expectations for this place based on the TA ratings. We decided to go when my Dad was visiting us from Ft Myers as it seemed like a kid friendly place (we have a 3yo and 7mo old) that seemed to have tasty options.

The best mesquite grilled grouper sandwich. Fish is fresh, fries are really hot and tasty. Staff very friendly. The ribs are good, even cold the next day. A have to try place.

After 20 years we were back at the Lazy Flamingo. I had the peel and eat shrimp, which were amazing and my hubby had the 'Big Burger Burger' with fries. Everything was absolutely wonderful! Service was very friendly and fast and sitting outside after a long day on the beach was just perfect.
