Family of 9 went here for dinner. We chose to eat outside. They do have ceiling fans and outside floor fans to help keep a breeze for you. If you're not a fan of sea food like me, this place offers a lot more items...More

Fairly casual, but I would recommend a little better dress than beachware. The food was amazing! He had the seafood trio (blackened mahi mahi, scallops, and a crab cake), and I had the new orange blossom mahi mahi. Outstanding all the way around!

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.
