Exactly what we were looking for at 10 PM after arriving at SBI exhausted and hungry...some quick, decent food and a good glass of wine. The grouper bite tacos and jumbo shrimp cocktail were both very good, reasonably priced, and delivered with a smile. This is pretty much a sports bar and the decibel level was a bit annoying at...

Sanibel rolls up its sidewalks early, so by the time we got onto the island from Miami, most everything was closed. We found Sanibel Grill open late so went for it. We had the clam chowder which was pretty good, and the grouper bites appetizer. The fish was quite fresh. We had shrimp scampi and the sesame tuna. Both were... More

My wife and I have been here before, so we knew what we were getting. That's a positive, as we just wanted a good meal in a casual atmosphere and didn't have the desire (nor time) to freshen up after playing golf all day. Sanibel Grill is a sports bar that is adjacent to the Timbers Restaurant on Tarpon Bay... More

Had trouble getting the championship game on our Direct TV channel so came here to watch. Lots of TVs so worked fine, but the food was just so so. Will go to to Doc Ford's next time where atmosphere and food are much better.

I got the crunchy grouper. It was good. Honestly the seafood is good just about anywhere on the island but I really liked the good service and laid back atmosphere at this place.

This is our favorite restaurant for dinner on Sanibel. Dine here at least three times while visiting the area. The crunchy grouper and shrimp are the best!

Amazing spot. Grouper was deeeelish! And the sushi was perfect. HECTOR was really the cherry on top. Remembered my moms wine with her main course. Checked in at the perfect times. Went up to the host stand and made sure our names were off the list when we sat at a cute spot near the bar. Totally recommend it. Will... More

We sat outside - nice that that is available. Several staff members talked to us. Truly friendly, not fake patronization. Lobster was over cooked and they brought a third free one, and gave us a free dessert. Prime rib was Perfect, and they use real horseradish, instead of that "horseradish-flavored-sour-cream" junk. Great garlic masked potatoes. Good prices. Tuesday was Prime... More
