The food is quite good, and the service is efficient and friendly. For a quiet meal during off hours, this is a good place to go.

We had a great meal here and we could bring our dogs along with us on the outside patio. Waitress brought treats for the dos which made them real happy. Southwestern chicken soup of the day was terrific !

So we visited and enjoyed the scallops and the grouper sandwich until s large party of 12 arrived and were so loud we could not wait to get out of there. Not the restaurants fault. Our waiter, Donald P could not have been nicer! Kudos...More

Someone on the beach recommended George & Wendy's, so I stopped in for brunch. I ordered 2 appetizers for my meal: Roasted garlic & brie cheese with Toast Points drizzled with Balsamic & pomegranate glaze...and also Ahi Tuna, seared & sliced think with a beer.

This is one of our favorite “haunts” ! We usually go to the bar area where on the weekends it can get quite busy, but if you have either Carmine or Erik as your Bartender they’ll make sure that you won’t go thirsty or hungry!...More

George & Wendy Schnapp both moved to Sanibel Island in 2002, George from Buffalo and Wendy from Chicagoland. They met on the island, fell in love and married in 2007. George has been in the restaurant business for over 30 years. Together they opened George & Wendy's Seafood Grille in 2011 to provide a place where locals and visitors could come and enjoy good food, drinks and entertainment. We are open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week offering an extensive menu sure to please any palate. The Chef and General Manager work together with their team to provide a welcoming dining experience for all. George and Wendy's Seafood Grille offers one of largest Hand-Crafted Cocktail menus on the islands, 20 beers on tap, an extensive wine list and a full liquor bar. Entertainment is provided most weekday evenings and weekends. Kid meals are served on a souvenir Frisbee to enjoy. T-Shirts, hats and local artwork are also available for purchase. We are open late for dinner and offer a late night dining menu as well. It's fun for the whole family.
