Husband had the seafood trio. Nice size portions and cooked to perfection. Grouper crab cake and scallops. Best crab cake since leaving the west coast. I had the scallops and they were so tender. Both plates had bright fresh vegetables. The service was fast for...More

We rented some bikes, and on the way stopped here to eat. We had some blackened shrimp and black beans. And my boyfriends parents had a patty melt. All the food was delicious. Pretty sure that shrimp was the best blackened shrimp I’ve ever had....More

the best meal we had during our Sanibel visit. All of the menu items have a nice twist on classic dishes. The service was wonderful and accommodating of our little one. Mostly you just need to know that the food and drinks were really good.

After our adventure at the Ding Darling NWR, we were famished from all our pedaling, so we stopped at George & Wendy’s Sanibel Seafood Grill for some lunch and libation! Great seating on the patio outside; fast service; and great seafood at a moderate price!...More

George and Wendy’s Seafood Grill is located on Sanibel Island, Florida, at a major intersection of Tarpon Bay Road and Periwinkle Way. It is thus easy to find. My choice for supper was a fried shrimp plate with black beans and rice, and fresh vegetables...More

Not a fancy place, nor does it have a huge wine list, but the food is really good. I had blue cheese crusted salmon and it was great. Ahi tuna nacho appetizer is to die for. Wait staff very friendly. Worth a visit.

Terrible place. The food had no taste, everything served after 10min, and so obviously precooked and just heated up. Worst experience so far in Florida.

George & Wendy Schnapp both moved to Sanibel Island in 2002, George from Buffalo and Wendy from Chicagoland. They met on the island, fell in love and married in 2007. George has been in the restaurant business for over 30 years. Together they opened George & Wendy's Seafood Grille in 2011 to provide a place where locals and visitors could come and enjoy good food, drinks and entertainment. We are open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week offering an extensive menu sure to please any palate. The Chef and General Manager work together with their team to provide a welcoming dining experience for all. George and Wendy's Seafood Grille offers one of largest Hand-Crafted Cocktail menus on the islands, 20 beers on tap, an extensive wine list and a full liquor bar. Entertainment is provided most weekday evenings and weekends. Kid meals are served on a souvenir Frisbee to enjoy. T-Shirts, hats and local artwork are also available for purchase. We are open late for dinner and offer a late night dining menu as well. It's fun for the whole family.
