We always find ourselves at the Lazy Flamingo for their grouper sandwiich and conch chowder. A very warm, low-key, friendly place to enjoy excellent food and a beer.

We stopped for lunch and had the cheeseburger and a chicken sandwich with 2 beers. Our server suggested since we were ordering two sandwiches that we get one with fries and the other with onion rings for sharing. Great idea. I think I liked the onion rings the best but the fries were also good. Prices were good too.

You can bring in your own catch and The Lazy Flamingo will prepare it for you. The raw oysters were the best I had all through Florida. The fish was cooked to perfection (all of our dishes).

I was so happy when Bennett's opened their second location nearer to us! This is a locally owned store that has only the best quality food and coffee offered. They roast their own beans, and refills are free. (listen up, Starbuck's) The donuts are simply the best this donut lover has ever tasted. My hubby even recommends the chicken 'n'... More

Two locations. I love to order wings and beer after a trip to the beach. Cold beer and nice air conditioning hit the spot while you wait for your food. They have a very good menu and will even cook your fresh fish that you caught!

Spent the day biking on Sanibel Island. We rode approximately 10 miles to the Lazy Flamiingo where we were rewarded for our efforts with lunch and beverages. A great way to break up our ride! A little bit of time shelling on the beach and then the bike ride back. A perfect day!

Great place for grilled fish, grouper was delicious and less expensive than in other restaurants. The difference is you'll eat with plastic fork and knife in a cool, relaxed and agreeable atmosphere. Good service, good food, reasonable prices.

We were looking for a conveniently located, relaxed ,casual restaurant with reasonably priced food. Lazy Flamingo II hit the spot. Fresh grouper sandwich and chicken filet sandwich were so tasty and satisfying to the pallet.

First time to Sanibel and stopped at Lazy Flamingo II the first night. It was crowded, but we found a seat at the bar. Friendly staff! Had Cesar salad with mesquite grouper on top. Outstanding!

This place is great to go and have a sandwich or an entrée. I have been there and had both. We always go there every time we go to Sanibel
