Food is excellent. I have been on three occasions and intend to return very soon. It is at a marina and enjoyed looking around the marina. Staff was good, service was good. My wife ordered something different than me each time and she was also greatly pleased. Will be taking family back soon.

This popular restaurant sits next to a marina. Because we didn't want to wait for a table at lunchtime we were able to sit at the counter. The seafood and soups were delicious!

The food here was very good. It was slow coming though so don't be in a hurry or starving. We think they make everything to order. The prices are on the high side.

Location is really nice right in middle of the marina. So, the views are nice. The food is better. I had the fish and chips. Hand cut and crunchy potato "chips". The fish was grouper. Batter was good and not greasy. Loved it.

We had drinks inside, both felt there was nothing special about it. We had dinner outside, looking at yachts. The bathrooms are outside of the restaurant, you use the marina's restroom. He had a burger, I had salmon. My salmon was quite good, it was the special though so not always an option.

Grandma Dot’s is a small place with tight seating both indoors and out on the deck that overlooks a dock at the Sanibel Marina. Parking is limited in front of the restaurant, but there is plenty of parking for the marina. We started with the Sampler Platter - a good way to start with a little taste of everything. While...

If you're headed across the causeway to Sanibel Island and hungry, head directly to Gramma Dots. It's close and you'll immediately get the island feel. Gramma Dots is on a marina and you can take a look at the boats for sale if you have to wait for a table. When we arrived we requested an outdoor table. We waited... More

Extra friendly service, picture perfect setting and to die for home made potato chips. We thought the best meal ordered was the Seafood Sampler.
