We had no reservation but they were very accommodating and let us sit outside. The view outside is amazing! We missed happy hour but that was OK. The drinks were really good and service was great too! Debra was phenomenal and the GM is very nice too. Sit outside, order a drink and forget about everything!

We enjoyed our first meal in Sanibel on this trip. We had no trouble getting a reservation that afternoon for the evening. Our server, Christine, was an enjoyable person. Our cocktails were a highlight - tropical and delicious. Dinner was well prepared. The atmosphere is casual and the setting is right on the beach, gulfside at The Sundial Resort.

Have dinner and enjoy Danny Morgan as he sings on Monday nights starting at 5:30! Hummus platter was good choice for appetizer and easily served 2. Pistachio encrusted turkey tenderloin is signature item and was excellent. Burger cooked as per request and sweet slaw that came with it had good flavor.

You go here for one reason. The Gulf view. It's magnificent. We thought the prices were inflated compared to the magnificence of some of the dishes on the island. You go for the view.

We had the very best server at the Sea Breeze Café in the Sundial Hotel on Sanibel Island, FL. Her name is Christine. Christine was not only professional but went above and beyond the call of duty as far as caring, accommodating and friendly. Christine is very special and very rare this day in age.

The service, atmosphere & food were great. We went here to eat the first night at our condo in Sanibel and it was very enjoyable. The service was great, the food was good, and it was very relaxing. We st outside over looking the ocean and we had a very nice evening!

Not a lot of places where you can find seafood and A BEACH view, in our experience here in Sanibel. Although this restaurant is inside Sundial hotel/ condos (that has been remodeled since our last visit) they offered a variety of options. I was very pleased with my sushi while hubby loved the crab cakes. Staff was friendly and fast.... More
