We like exploring Sanibel and Captiva during May or October when the snow birds and summer tourists are not there. We stopped by the Sunset Grill for lunch. It is an unassuming place just off the main road. We did not know what to expect....More

We enjoyed a quiet breakfast here. The tables outside were full, so we ate indoors. Eggs benedict with crab was very nice. Good mimosas. Prices are a little high.

We will be visiting soon and the restaurant looks fabulous. Our cardiologist recommends us to follow a Plant Based Program - nothing with a mother. Do you offer vegetarian meals - like grilled vegetables, stuffed portabello mushroom caps, sweet peppers, brown rice, whole wheat pasta, etc?????? (No cheese) Thank you.
