Dog friendly. Superb dining options. It’s inland and not on the water but you still get an island vibe. Outdoor seating was great! Seafood is fresh. Ahi Tina app is fabulous!The best meal we had on the island!

When in SW Florida, this is the first place we like to go to for succulent calamari. The Gouper is also a “must-taste”. Everything is always fresh and the service is excellent. They also have a wide selection of beer. We definitely recommend George &...More

Dinner of 4 consisted of Drunker Grouper, Grouper Tacos and Grouper sandwich (spot a trend here....). All were fresh and tasty. Would recommend for a casual, low key dinner. Will go again.

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.
