As good as it gets for a low-key seafood restaurant. Fried shrimp and cold beer - what else could you need?

Food good, beer cold, prices reasonable. Grouper sandwich was delicious. Parking in back was assessable.

My kids love it when we spend the day in Sanibel and have lunch at the Lazy Flamingo. They love playing the ring toss game while waiting for our food. We always get a variety of steamed shell fish and peel and eat shrimp and eat tapas style, but leave room for the key lime pie.

Stopped in for lunch, nothing fancy but friendly staff. You order at the bar then they will call out your name for a pick. Grouper sandwich was delicious. Wings were tasty and a great value. Skewered shrimp salad was also a hit. Food was a great value. We arrived at a perfect time, once we were done they had line... More

This place does grouper very well. It is always cooked to perfection. They don't take reservations so get there early or be prepared to wait a long time. The atmosphere is basically dive bar, Sanibel style. If you're​ into that you'll love it here. If you're interested in a relaxing vacation meal, keep looking. You order at the bar, you... More

Stopped in after a day of paddle boarding. This place was recommended by our guide. It was a great Florida atmosphere, attentive and great service, large portions, and good food. Prices were average but with the portions worth the money. The best part is that it was easy to find and just a few blocks from the light house beach!

My mom is in love with the grilled grouper. I had it on the ceasar salad and it was good. Fries are good, as are conch fritters. Get there early as it is busy busy during peak times! Not gourmet, but totally serviceable.

We stumbled onto this restaurant and were extremely impressed. Very fresh seafood. I had a tuna steak that had been caught early the same day and it was excellent. My husband had a variety seafood platter that he absolutely loved. I would make a point to go here again the next time I go to Fort Myers.
