We have been to two locations,the one right off the Sanibel Causeway and the one right by Blind Pass. Both are terrific! The conch chowders and oysters are very good at both locations.Conch fritters seem a bit doughy. All the fish offerings are great. You may have to wait for a table,but it is worth it!!!

We stopped here for a quick bite on our way to Captiva. Very casual setting with laid back wait staff ( and I mean that in a very positive way). You order at the bar and they bring you the food when it is ready. The food was very good. It was a great way to start our vacation!

Stopped for lunch today. Upon arrival, was given a menu and told we could sit where we wanted. I would call this a self serve restaurant because you order your food at the bar, waiter gives you your drinks, you take the drinks back to your table and then you pick your food up at the bar when he calls...

We brought our own fish that we'd caught the day before. They did a wonderful blackened grill to it plus a Caesar salad and some yummy fries all for $10 per person. Very laid back.... no wait staff you help yourself. Sounds odd but it was really fun and very tasty! Meal was served quickly. Definitely will go back!

Recommended to us by a local at Fort Myers Beach, we stopped here for lunch while touring around Sanibel Island. You enter, seat yourselves with a menu, then place your order up at the bar. They call you when it's ready or sometimes bring it to your table. Loud, beach music and oldies are the genre here. Our sandwiches were... More

We make sure never to miss a trip to the lazy flamingo when on sanibel island. The staff is extremely friendly, large selection of beers on tap, and good food very reasonably priced. Grouper salad a must. Oysters are good and very reasonably priced.

My friend collects flamingos so we stopped here to eat. My sister had a delicious steak sandwich. I had the half pound of steamed shrimp. They were fabulous. The service was fantastic as we never had to ask for a thing. The t-shirts are really cool too. All in all I highly recommend the Lazy Flamingo.

Located just before the Sanibel/Captiva bridge, the Lazy Flamingo is a standard beach front bar/restaurant type of place. Free parking out front (very awesome) and a few tables outside to enjoy the view. Walk inside, place your order and your meals arrive rather quickly. Conch fritters were tasty. Friendly staff. Major plus is the Sirius XM Channel 23 that plays... More

We enjoyed a juicy burger with superb French fries. We were surprised that the Caesar salad came without chicken and tomatoes.
