Great little diner in the strip mall off of Perriwinkle. Food is all moderately priced and very tasty. Service is prompt and everyone was very nice. We visit Sanibel often and will definitely come back.

Yes it is. There is a ramp outside the restaurant to use. It goes to the promenade with the restaurant and stores. They have chairs, which can be moved to accommodate a wheelchair.
