This place was recommended and we were not disappointed! The chicken quesadilla appetizer was the cheesiest I’ve ever had! Dinner was great, including the mile high mud pie! Wendy provided excellent service, including recommendations for entrees!

My husband and I went there for dinner. The patio is lovely and very private. Service was good. We both had the grouper- mine grilled, his fried. We both loved it! Especially good. The sauteed veggies had a subtle garlic flavor to them that I really liked. We definitely will go back. The only disappointment was the smoked fish dip which was bland. Wish we would have had room for dessert as the table next to us had a dessert that looked scrumptious!!

The Sanibel Fish House is always a must visit when we travel to Sanibel Island. During our latest stay, we dined there 2 times within a week as we were quite enthused by what this restaurant has to offer.

The restaurant ambience is certainly colorful and fun. The bar area is typical of a sports bar and suitably welcoming.

The meals are spectacular. While we were visiting, pompano and red snapper were featured specials. Each was mild and delicious. The regular menu is filled with other such delicious selections.

We were most impressed, however, by the excellent service and attitude we encountered, notably by hostess Madelyn, waitress Marissa, and waiter Jeremy, each of whom was most welcoming, attentive, and professional as well as patient with our questions on the menu/restaurant.

Great service alone is vitally important to us. Throw in delicious meals and an appealing ambiance, and you've got the complete package!

This was our first meal on the island. We ordered conch chowder to start and got it right away. In fact, I made a comment about how quick we got it. It was down hill after that. The appetizers of clams and shrimp were good but took over half and hour to get and the meal took longer than that. The food was good but I didn't plan to spend the day there.

Took over an hour to get food. 3 beers were comped, my tuna melt was good, felt bad my husband said it was the worst seafood he has ever had. When we got there bar area was dead, all later bar and tables got food before us and put down next to us at the bar. I moved my phone out of the way for the full trays. Thought we were on a prank show. Unfortunately, the Sanibel Fish House is not worth your time.
