Fodor's Review

One of Sanibel's longest-running restaurants successfully satisfies visitors and residents with consistent quality and a full net of nightly catches and specials. The fish market inside the door is a sure sign of freshness, and most of the dishes showcase seafood simply and flavorfully. The oysters Romanoff with caviar, shallots, and sour cream are a nice twist on oyster "sliders." Corn flakes grant the crunchy grouper and shrimp rights to their names. Choose to have your fresh catch blackened, fried, or broiled, or go for a sirloin or beef filet. House salad or soup du jour comes with each entrée, or you can upgrade to the crab bisque, which just might be the best on the island. For lighter fare and a sports bar vibe, Sanibel Grill shares the same space.
