This restaurant is always great. We have always been greeted by a friendly hostess and the waiter and waitresses are knowledgeable about the menu. Don't miss the chocolate cake.

Wonderful meal and service. Definitely will go back. Prices are fair. Check out the oyster shell collection! Also they have a fresh seafood counter for retail sales.

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. 😍
