The food and service was very good. They are open fairly late for Sanibel, so if you want to catch the sunset and eat afterwards, they are open until 10pm. The prices are in line with the other Sanibel restaurants. I will go back.

From the bread to the appetizers and meal, this was by far the best dinner we had on the islands. We had the Lobster Napolean and the sauce was awesome, Lobster was sweet and delicious. We all got pasta meals. Toddler had the spaghetti marinara...More

Good food, great service and entertainment several nights a week. Menu offers a number of choices and the kids menu was a hit with 2 of our great grandchildren. Realy worth a try.

We happened upon this place by accident and it's now a regular stop during our time on the island. Wonderful seafood dishes, extensive drinks/beer/wine offerings. The dinners are HUGE so come hungry! Wait staff has always been friendly and efficient.

Family of 9 went here for dinner. We chose to eat outside. They do have ceiling fans and outside floor fans to help keep a breeze for you. If you're not a fan of sea food like me, this place offers a lot more items...More

Located in Central Sanibel Island somewhat out of the way. Great Service with some unique menu choices...like Tuna Nachos-Awesome. The bread with oil was a nice choice. Was a great way to end our day at Sanibel. Highly recommend..

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.
