I love sitting by the pool at Coconuts, having grouper sandwiches and the best-ever cole slaw. There is music on the weekends, and a great vibe all day every day. From hot dogs to margaritas, they make everything special.

Best that I have ever had, melted in my mouth. Perfect afternoon for a lunch on Sanibel Island before heading home to the cold Midwest.

We went to watch the Buffalo Bills in their playoff game. The bartenders here are excellent. The drinks are good and the food is average. The bar is located near the pool with an excellent view of the ocean.
