We stopped for dinner at Rosie's and had a good dinner. The food was good and the service was very good. It was quiet and you could actually carry on a conversation here. Nice place for dinner.

Average. Nothing to rave about. We had breakfast here right after they reopened. It was satisfactory.

We had a nice dinner at Rosies Cafe. The place had nice atmosphere. The meal prices were reasonable and included their delicious ice cream for desert. The service was also very good.

We stopped in for breakfast on the last day before they were closing for vacation in September. Breakfast was excellent. I had the Southern Benedict and my wife had the Biker's Benedict. We enjoyed our meals and they were fairly reasonable for Sanibel. Many of the benedicts were less expensive than regular breakfasts and really seemed to be a bargain... More

We were looking for a breakfast restaurant that we had not been to previously. Rosie's fit the bill, exceptionally friendly employees, really quick service and great food. I highly recommend the crispy French toast, that we both had.

We stopped in for lunch one day. My son had the strawberry smoothie and kids meal, I had the fish tacos. Fantastic. It was so good in fact, we went the next day for dinner and had the exact same meals. And then had the most delicious ice cream. The prices were fair, service great, good excellent.

Two visits to Rosie's and I really think it is an unsung place for dinner. I know it is popular for breakfast or lunch, but dinner is very good. Standouts for us were the home made fish soup, buffalo shrimp for a starter, with the Rajun Cajun Steampot for an entree! The grouper was tasty too. Service on both visits... More
