We saw an ad in the paper about this buffet so got reservations and went out. What a beautiful drive across Sanibel causway to get there. The line to eat was twenty folks or so and when we got seated, grab a plate and enjoy. I loved the Prime rib and stuffing and the wife liked the oysters and crab... More

My wife and I ate here on the first night of a two night stay at the Sundial Resort & Spa and found it most enjoyable. The service was good, the food excellent and the atmosphere most convivial. Prices also were reasonable. Recommended

We wemt to the Sea Breeze Café for lunch. We sat in the outdoor seating area which over looked the pool and the Gulf of Mexico. We started our meal with a raspberry ice tea. My husband had a $6 bowl of Seafood Chowder that came with a big fancy cracker. The chowder had fresh coastal seafood, bacon, potatoes, and... More

This was a good place to have lunch while you overlook the beach. Staff was nice and food price was decent. Their mango mojito was the best!

Our family enjoyed breakfast every morning at the Sea Breeze Café. The selection they had satisfied everyone's particular tastes. We sat inside because it was just simply too hot to sit outside and enjoy a hot cup of coffee. The service was excellent and the omelet station was delicious. I highly recommend this café as a great start to your... More

This review is for the restaurant only, not the resort. We were staying at a condo close by and decided to have a light dinner at the Sundial restaurant outside overlooking the pool. The view from our table was interesting. The pool looked clean and well maintained, but many of the cabanas on the other side of the pool were... More

My husband and I have eaten at the Sea Breeze Café several times since we moved to Sanibel over a year ago. It has always been very good, and seems to get better every time we go. Our last meal there was a delightful dining experience. We were greeted warmly by the manager, Mike. The atmosphere was comfortable, casual and... More

The view is great and the food was also great. Try the beach chips and the Cuban Skinny and sit out on the outdoor balcony!
