Good service, good crab cakes... We went for lunch after calling and finding out they stop serving at 3:00, we told them we were on our way and offered to order over the phone. They kindly accepted and when we arrived at 3:15 the food came in 5 minutes. Easy going people that I appreciate

Food was good, go early to avoid crowds. Filled with people who seemed to know one another, although they also seemed to be vacationers. Sports bar with lots of games on TVs around the bar.

During our week stay, we visited twice for dinner because we really enjoyed the atmosphere and service. Menu offered traditional "bar" food with a few twists. Surprisingly, the tuna was excellent!!

It's clean, friendly and best of all, always good quality and value. The food is uncomplicated but very tasty. The Crunchberry Salad with Shrimp is my personal favourite and hard to beat!

Be warned, even with call ahead seating, the wait will be long. We called ahead a full 30 minutes and still waited an additional 50 minutes. The food was average. I had the grouper sandwich and rate it middle of the road among those on the island. One bright spot was the hostess who made sure we were doing okay... More

Our first time to Sanibel Grill and we were immediately greeted and seated by a wonderful, friendly hostess. We started out with an appetizer of potato skins. It was better than most as a lot of the potato was left on. There were several items on the menu I would have loved to try, but I settled on the blackened... More

First, they have outdoor seating but you cannot get service out there so you have to order and pay for your food so you can eat outside. Also, they are the same people who own timbers next door and can get kind of confusing when you order because you can order food that is offered by timers but it's not... More

Whenever we walk into "The Grill", you immediately feel like you're home. The wait staff and bartenders make you feel welcome. The assortment of fresh fish and variety of food truly makes this a can't miss stop on the Sanibel food train! The value is extraordinary and the food is always freshly prepared. It is truly amazing how well they... More
