They have the best hot wings I've ever had!! They are terryaki-hot seasoned and they are awesome! Ambience is cool too and very friendly owners. A good stop for food and relaxation.

My mom is in love with the grilled grouper. I had it on the ceasar salad and it was good. Fries are good, as are conch fritters. Get there early as it is busy busy during peak times! Not gourmet, but totally serviceable.

We stumbled onto this restaurant and were extremely impressed. Very fresh seafood. I had a tuna steak that had been caught early the same day and it was excellent. My husband had a variety seafood platter that he absolutely loved. I would make a point to go here again the next time I go to Fort Myers.

Interesting place ... place your order at the bar and find your own table and then wait for your name to be called to pick up your order We did enjoy the conch and clam chowders as well as the Grouper sandwiches - just not what we were expecting. Parking across the street and a friendly large crowd.

Been going to this place for years. I like this location best because you can access the beach. Not sure about getting towed. Be careful with this and ask.

Went to Lazy Flamingo for dinner and it was just average. Nothing really special. The food is overpriced and you eat with plastic silverware. The service was alright, but could of been better. I got the grouper sandwich, it was just average. I had good expectations before going to the restaurant and was disappointed after my family went. Everything was... More

Once for lunch, a dozen oysters and some peel-n-eats. Good beer, great oysters and very good shrimp. Returned the last night for dinner, got some oysters and peel-n-eats again, I got the grilled grouper with caesar salad and my husband got the fried grouper with fries. Excellent meal, wonderful fish.

This place is definitely something to check out if you're on Sanibel Island and you want some good steamed oysters, shuck them yourself.. now let's not forget about the wings too.. we got the spicy wings I forgot with the sauces card but ask any waiter waitress and they'll hook you up. The atmosphere is awesome and the staff is... More

A great place for lunch or dinner while on the island. Easy parking but if you sit outside it is by the busy road. Great food and even better service.

We typically go here only when we have been out fishing and have fresh catch to eat but are too tired to fix it ourselves. For that they are a good option as they will fix your catch in several ways with sides for a reasonable price, and if you are sunburned and tired from all day on the water,... More
