I have reviewed this before but always as a dine in experience. This time we got the food to go and it was mixed. The grouper sandwiches are always good.

Went here for dinner and had the fried prawns, French fries, and coleslaw and it was excellent. The restaurant only offers wine and beer for alcoholic beverages. Will definitely go again.

We stopped in for lunch and enjoyed watching the waitresses fly the orders into the kitchen on a rigged up zip line! Good food, prices on par with the island. The grouper was fresh.

Ordered some wings for Super Bowl party. They were enjoyed by all. Definitely worth a try for either dinner or for the happy hour.

Needed to find some lunch after visiting the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. Heard the Lazy Flamingo had good fresh seafood. I love Grouper so I opted for the Fried Grouper basket. It contained a nice amount of Grouper pieces that were delicious. Atmosphere very laid back, just my style.

Small divey type bar and restaurant with typical bar food. No waitress service so you order at the bar. We had grouper and buffalo shrimp. Yummmmmmm for both and a couple of cold beers. It's always a must Go to place when we come to Sanibel and captiva!

Not real impressive from the outside, but this place knows its business. Laid back and carefree, the food is fantastic. The grouper sandwich was one of the best I've ever had.
