We had large party of 8 so did call ahead. Our table was ready and waiting when we all arrived. The front of the house was very friendly and seated us in a quiet area of the restaurant that was perfect. The crab bisque was really wonderful & the crab cake appetizer was pretty darn good too. Some of us... More

We went in after a day at Sanibel's Bowman's Beach, to visit the raw bar at Timbers. Currently it is $1 local oysters for happy hour from 4-6pm. We sat at the bar with a great, friendly bartender, had a couple local beers, lots of oysters, and some shrimp. Enjoyed it so much, we decided to take back a fish... More

The bar at Sanibel Grille is where the famous locals hang out. Have seen VPOTUS Pence, former CIA head Porter Goss, Billboard Hit Artist Pop Singer Songwriter Pianist Whitney Wolanin, Danny DeVito, Michael Jordan, and others there. Great food, great atmosphere. This is not a tourist trap like other restaurants nearby. The food is reasonably priced, the beer is cold... More

If you are looking for fresh caught Gulf fish & delicious steaks cooked to order, Timbers is the place for you! Ask for Brittany as her recommendations for each of us were spot on! Yellow edge grouper & filet mignon simply delectable.

Vice President Mike Pence dined here during his visit to Sanibel. After dining here ourselves, we found out why. Fresh seafood daily and a large selection of it. Chilean Sea Bass, swordfish, black tip shark just to name a few of the items in the "today's fresh fish" section of the menu. They also have an early bird menu that... More

Fresh oysters on the half shell and outstanding fresh fish menu are the standouts here. Nice dinner with soup or salad included. One of our favs on this lovely island.

We had dinner at the Timbers - we ordered the Crispy Grouper which they are famous for and it didn't disappoint - it was wonderful! I would definitely order it again. We also had a wonderful shrimp cocktail and fresh fish of the day. Our waiter was friendly and very attentive. Highly recommend this restaurant for business meals or personal... More

What makes a great restaurant? Certainly food, atmosphere, location and value make for a good experience. People make for a great experience and this place has the best people. From the Hostess who took the time to explain what was special, the very busy raw bar chef who was remarkably calm and accommodating, to our server Lexi, who was terrific,... More

We've been to Sanibel several times and tonight was the first time dining in. Excellent food and excellent service! Our server, Kristin provided excellent advice recommending the Parmesan Crusted Chilean Sea bass. It did not disappoint! We also had the scallops which were cooked to perfection. We'll definitely be back!

We had a great meal here. Lovely salmon sushi with salmon inside and out! My husband had crab legs which were delicious and I had yellowtail snapper. Very lovely meal. Great staff and loved the take home cabinet full of wonderful fish.
