Fodor's Review

At two Sanibel locations, plus two more in neighboring Fort Myers and Pine Island Sound, this is a friendly neighborhood hangout enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. All of these restaurants have a funky nautical look à la Key West and a popular following for their Dead Parrot Wings (buffalo wings coated with tongue-scorching hot sauce), mesquite-grilled grouper sandwiches, burgers, and steamer pots. The Flamingo garlic bread is always a hit, and the grouper caesar salad is cheesy and award-winning. Kids' meals are served on a Frisbee that makes not only a great souvenir but also a cool new beach toy. The second Sanibel location is at 1036 Periwinkle Way, Tel. 239/472–6939.
