Our waiter Timothy was very good. Food not so much. Was really hoping for a higher quality. Most likely will not be back.

Grilled shrimp skewers with bbq sauce were pretty good, swordfish was ok. The theming inside was really cool and the air conditioning was quite Refreshing! Definitely good enough to plan to visit again.

This is the place on Sanibel for fresh fish. Loved the atmosphere and the service was right on. The menu has a lot to offer even if you don't want fish.

I am not sure they have early bird. The standard early bird in Sanibel is about 5-7, some times later in the summer, people want to stay on the beach until the last possible minute. 😍
