Was just average fresh frozen. Nothing to run and try. Plenty of food, fried fried fried. No special seasoning, just typical Friday fried fish.

This place has good reviews and is recommended by locals we spoke to. I had fried whitefish dinner, pretty good. Hushpuppies look like little onion rings. Pretty good. Sister had broiled flounder. She really liked it. Service OK. Heard it gets really crowded on weekends. Not open for lunch. Would recommend if you like some decent seafood.

For this type of seafood restaurant, Sanibel's is by far the very best in the local area. It was wonderful to finally have a fried seafood plate that tasted like it had been cooked in fresh oil. We had the flounder and a seafood combination of flounder, shrimp oysters and the food was cooled perfectly without over frying or having... More

Fried platter tasted grocery store frozen and oven baked at home. Stuffed broiled flounder burned. Clam chowder tasted like butter water with milk. No clams to be found. Admittedly, this is the first Friday in Lent, standing room only and the waitress did say the kitchen was understaffed. It was our first visit. The restaurant is nice, clean and the... More

I Love the Alaskan White fish. It's Something about the way they cook it, It taste so good! The salads are always cold and fresh, the hush puppies are too good to be true. You gotta get there early because they get packed quick.

We waited only a couple minutes for a table...and the service was friendly & fast. We ordered seafood all around, but it took a bit longer for the broiled plate. All was good and hot. The seafood was fresh and tasty... large portions except for the boiled plate. The sides of hush puppies & slaw were very good also. The... More

Went with friends who frequent often. This was my first visit. Friendly greeting and was seated right away on a Saturday evening. Ordered the fried flounder, fried clams and jumbo shrimp with the baked potato. The food arrived fast and was very fresh. Everyone enjoyed everything they ordered and we had no problems at all with service. I will be... More

My seafood experience and education began when I was a child and was taken by my parents to a famed seafood restaurant in Maryland where I had my first fried flounder. Every visit was just like the first – the fish was very fresh, thick and meaty, and perfectly fried. The accompanying fries and cole slaw as close to perfection... More
