We had explored all day & checked out of our hotel, so thought we should eat before the drive home. The waitress was pleasant, but I got the wrong drink and my shrimp scampi was mediocre, tasteless and pasta overcooked - I was glad I...More

We have visited this restaurant twice on different trips to Sanibel. The ambiance and decorations are very nice, but the food can be a hit or miss. The first time we had fish sandwiches, and these were good, so we returned during a second trip....More

George & Wendy Schnapp both moved to Sanibel Island in 2002, George from Buffalo and Wendy from Chicagoland. They met on the island, fell in love and married in 2007. George has been in the restaurant business for over 30 years. Together they opened George & Wendy's Seafood Grille in 2011 to provide a place where locals and visitors could come and enjoy good food, drinks and entertainment. We are open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week offering an extensive menu sure to please any palate. The Chef and General Manager work together with their team to provide a welcoming dining experience for all. George and Wendy's Seafood Grille offers one of largest Hand-Crafted Cocktail menus on the islands, 20 beers on tap, an extensive wine list and a full liquor bar. Entertainment is provided most weekday evenings and weekends. Kid meals are served on a souvenir Frisbee to enjoy. T-Shirts, hats and local artwork are also available for purchase. We are open late for dinner and offer a late night dining menu as well. It's fun for the whole family.
