go early for the tapas menu: 3-6 pm and order the Detroit slider and Buffalo shrimp with chili sauce. The crab cakes were just okay, and the scallops I ordered were not done well. The grouper and the ribs were excellent!

Had the seafood pasta special and it was wonderful! Service was just OK. It seems like they don't have enough staff.

I'm not sure George & Wendy's has been open but I had not been prior to this visit to Sanibel. My family and I went twice for dinner while there. The service, food and facility were all good.

We always eat outdoors - with pet dog; atmosphere & service are nice - pleasant patio feeling. Cool evening heaters only so-so effective but not an issue. Good range of food options, well prepared with taste, good service, sense of caring about quality. Always one...More

We had an enjoyable meal. Service was good and the food was very tasty. The Calamari was good, but a little greasy. We will be back.

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.
