Came in late after a sunset cruise. Lively, good food, a great waiter named Torre. His food suggestions were right on and he alerted us that the kitchen would close in 20 minutes. Will return.

My wife and I had a small lunch, she the Ahi Tuna Tacos and I the New England Clam Chowder. Hers was great and mine was good. Good waitress and fast service. Recommended also for a good selection of craft beers.

Really enjoyed the Ahi Tuna App, rec from a friend. We’ll be back for dinner. Waiter was great, and the atmosphere was enjoyable. I’ll have to try the beef on a weck next time.

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.
