It is definitely the low end restaurant of the Tween Waters Inn, but that is why we went. They share a kitchen and bar with the high end restaurant. We rode our bikes (bike parking is non existent - we locked them to the railing in front of the restaurant) early and were able to score a table where we... More

Excellent Prime Rib dinner, two for $35, served with baked potato and mixed vegetables. Skip the complimentary onion rolls, they don't really have a taste, very bland.

On Sanibel for 2 days, had dinner here one night. The food was good and reasonably priced but have to say that $10 for a glass of house red wine is ridiculous. This restaurant is part of the Tween Waters resort, so I would imagine that most of the people who stay there will eat here and the restaurant next... More

Tried a variety of local beers and the wife had a cocktail mixed by the bartender Dom. He said it's the drink he makes someone who doesn't know what they want. My wife and I both thought it was delicious. We went on karaoke night and crab racing night. If you want to participate in the crab racing you must... More

Had a meatball hero, very dry. The seafood over pasta dish was not really noteworthy. The bar area, lively and fun. AKA karaoke night. I will be back :)

I give the food 3 circles, the service 4 circles and the music entertainment 5 circles. That averages out to 4 circles overall, right?

We eat here a couple times every time we are at Tween Waters. Family atmosphere, good drinks, reasonably priced for a resort location. Crab races were fun the time we went. I always enjoy the fish tacos.
