Seafood was very fresh, blackened grouper sandwich was best I'd had in a long time. We've eaten here each time we were in Sanibel

Enjoyed a terrific blackened grouper sandwich & a beer. The grouper was flavorful. Has a tavern feel to it-which we enjoy

One bartender was crabby but the next one was fun and engaging. We only stopped for drinks. This location was apparently remodeled and is beautiful.

Just 3 words you need to know: "mesquite grilled grouper". Don't worry about anything else. It's the best thing you ever tasted! Sat at the bar and enjoyed the view of the busy place. Atmosphere, service, price, location.......doesn't matter. Just remember those three words!

Last year we enjoyed a good meal ordering steamed shrimp. However, this Dec. we were very disappointment in our fish order that was overdone, & dry . The waitresses were trying to cope with lunch crowd and our waitress did not seem very concerned that our food was not satisfactory Those who ordered mixed drinks seemed to receive more attentiveness.

Absolutely the best steamed shrimp we had in Florida! It was hot, fresh, and plump! No where else compares. Kids meal comes on a frisbee! This is definitely more of a bar atmosphere even though there were lots of kids in there during the day. Service was average. Not exactly the cleanest place. The caddies that held the salt, pepper,... More

My husband and I discovered the lazy flamingo on our last captiva trip in may, we immediately fell in love with the "dive bar" ambiance and appreciated how different it was from all other bars/restaurants in the area. We knew it was at the top of our list for this trip! Our return visit did not disappoint! We were warmly... More
