The Fish is superb and so fresh. The cocktails and ambiance are amazing ...be sure to try some oysters. The food is high quality. Be sure not to miss stopping here for dinner or happy hour. Excellent Margaritas and specials...the best.

A sports bar, loud, crowded, tv's everywhere, but just the thing sometimes. Food is limited but good, if you're looking for food. We got the crunchy grouper and shrimp baskets, which is something of a speciality here.

Cold beer, pizza and a bunch of other foods. All served fairly quickly. Could use more staff, so the waitresses could spend more time just saying hello. Seemed like a "locals" place.

My husband and I decided to have dinner at Sanibel Grill last week while vacationing on Sanibel. A couple of people we met at the condo complex told us the Crunchy Grouper is exceptional. My husband and I both ordered the Crunchy Grouper baskets. We...More

We always stop by the Sanibel Grill during visits and it never disappoints. We enjoyed our drinks, shrimp scampi, and grouper platter, key lime pie, and cappucchinos. Our server was friendly and very helpful when we were deciding what to order. This is a casual...More
