Our family of four had dinner here, and it was one of our better dining experiences on Sanibel. We were there on a Thursday, when sushi is available, and it was excellent and very fresh. Raw oysters, fish tacos and a fried grouper basket were also excellent. There were very limited options for our vegetarian, but that seems to be... More

This is an expensive restaurant with an upscale menu. We had the lobster / crab combo appetizer. Skip it, they should remove it from the menu. We were told ithad large chunks of crab and lobster, this was not accurate, the crab was shredded and the lobster small pieces. The mango sauce overpowered it a bit. The wilted spinach salad...

We have been going to the raw bar for the past several years. We enjoy the people and get to know them for the week we are there. This is the second year that Johnna has waiting on us. She is a wonderful, cheerful, sweet girl and always has a smile on her face. She makes you feel welcome from... More

Our first time at the Sanibel Grill. What an enjoyable experience. Our server was Lexi. Oysters Romannof & Shishito peppers for appetizers, Florida lobster tail & NY strip steak for entrees. Delicious! Lexi surprised me with a complimentary piece of key lime pie with a Birthday candle. Will definitely return to the Sanibel Grill!

Stopped by for dinner and had a wonderful experience. Great food and great service. Our server, Livia was fantastic. She got me some French onion soup that wasn't even on the menu. That's going above and beyond.

We came to the Sanibel Grill with no expectations but were pleasantly surprised. From the moment we walked in and were warmly greeted by the hostess to the wonderful service from Roxanne to the ambiance, everything was spot on. Special kudos to Roxanne for her informative, warm and friendly style. Even though the place was jumping, she took the time... More

This place has something for everyone! Great nightly specials so we visit often. We go Timbers next door for dates, special occasions or just for a quiet dinner. The Sanibel Grill has the same owners so they benefit from the same great, fresh ingredients but just a little more loud, fun, sports bar atmosphere. The only problem is that I... More

Came here for a late bite to eat. The prime rib special was to die for. The meatloaf was moist and tasty. My son devoured his shrimp basket. I had the grouper which was excellent. Fast and efficient and friendly service. Great sports bar too.

Thank Argusmom
