Fodor's Review

Now this is romance: the lodge was built as a wedding gift from a husband to his wife and is now a gift to those lucky enough to dine here. Lush green grounds are right outside the window, then just beyond is the Gulf of Mexico and Sanibel's seashell-laden shores. But it's more than the views that will lull you into a dreamy mood. The food is fresh, elegant, and flavorful. Entrées span everything from Parmesan-and-herb-crusted black grouper to Asian braised beef short ribs. Frequent patrons back in the day included Thomas Edison and Henry Ford.
