We totally enjoyed our meal, and my husband was thrilled to find the Buffalo specialty "Beef on Wick". perfectly prepared and delicious. My seafood was superb, and the atmosphere offered either inside or out, quiet or not, and fun art on the walls.

Our mission was for a burger. But when we saw the menu, it was wow to the menu. Hubby got the Hummel weck, and Ingot the tuna nachos(small). Both entrees were OMG delicious. Any and all that visit Sanibel Island MUST visit at least once.

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.
