I have eaten here many times and the food is consistently very good. I feel the grouper Reuben sandwich here is the best on the island.

We ordered sushi, (which was made right in front of us), one Bowl of Mussels, and 1 House Salad which was all amazing. Everything tasted great and Katie... More

The restaurant is located just past the check in area of the main Sundial Resort building. We had the grouper Reuben sandwich with plantain chips for lunch. The service was excellent and the fish portion was very generous. The price was competitive compared to other Sanibel restaurants.

Been here many years ago and visited again last night. Atmosphere (outside seating) and service was very good. My wife ordered the Grouper Special and I ordered the Crispy Florida Snapper. The grouper was good but my fish was BAD, it had an odor and an "off" taste. Very surprised for a $31 entree the chef didn't recognize the fish... More

We saw an ad in the paper about this buffet so got reservations and went out. What a beautiful drive across Sanibel causway to get there. The line to eat was twenty folks or so and when we got seated, grab a plate and enjoy. I loved the Prime rib and stuffing and the wife liked the oysters and crab... More

My wife and I ate here on the first night of a two night stay at the Sundial Resort & Spa and found it most enjoyable. The service was good, the food excellent and the atmosphere most convivial. Prices also were reasonable. Recommended

We wemt to the Sea Breeze Café for lunch. We sat in the outdoor seating area which over looked the pool and the Gulf of Mexico. We started our meal with a raspberry ice tea. My husband had a $6 bowl of Seafood Chowder that came with a big fancy cracker. The chowder had fresh coastal seafood, bacon, potatoes, and... More
