This is the perfect place to grab an outdoor lunch with friendly staff and a variety of menu choices. We had the haddock tacos and the patty melt - yum! Hit the spot!

George and Wendy's isn't the first place most tourists think about for dinner on Sanibel - locals on the other hand know. This place is the real deal. I highly recommend one of the fresh catch specials and a local craft beer. You won't be disappointed.

I have visited George & Wendy's a few times over the past 2 years and I love the food and I loved Kasey. He was exceptional and I was thrilled when he came on duty and took over our service as the previous bartender (blonde female) basically ignored us. If I was rating her service, it would be "terrible". Thank... More

Food was palatable but not flavorful. We were disappointed. The wait staff however, was wonderful and fun! Please step up your game because you have a great location.

We had a highly engaged waiter who made it a very memorable meal. The drinks were generous, good strength and promptly served. The food was served piping hot...I had the fish tacos and they were probably the best I've ever had. The portion sizes were more than adequate without being excessive. This is not a haute cuisine restaurant but a... More

The food was great karaoke even better...we didnt sing but the locals love it and made for a fun night! They have an EXTENSIVE gluten free menu, I was so happy. Also told our server dairy and egg allergy and they were so good about making sure I was happy!

After a busy morning fishing in Captiva, our guide recommended George & Wendy's in Sanibel as a great place to bring our catch. Our sea trout was prepared quickly and deliciously two ways (our choice: blackened & fried), and came with our choice of sides - we had REALLY yummy mixed veggies and fries. Drinks were good too, and service... More

The waitress was fun and gave us some info about the island. I had the best peel and eat shrimp and crab cakes ever! My husband had a shrimp poor boy and clam chowder. We shared a blended rum runner and a 5 rum punch that was good but strong! Highly recommend!

Lisa was our server and she was absolutely wonderful and so accommodating. We had the Gluten free shrimp scampi, two gluten free chicken Caesar wraps and one group sandwich (with all the glutens). For an appetizer we had the flat bread pizza. The service was great. The food was delicious. They exceeded all of our expectations. We will definitely come... More

We decided to eat al fresco on this lovely April night. There was a varied specialty drink menu for those who want fancy cocktails. I had the red sangria- not too strong or too sweet.The shrimp bisque was the special of the day and very tasty with a slight kick. My husband had the blackened grouper bites as an appetizer....
