Before finding this place, our pockets.were emptied very quickly on this island with very unsatisfying food in top rated places. That ended when we went to Rosie's.. Well worth the stop.

Stopped at this restaurant before leaving Sanibel. I had the Grouper Reuben sandwich with their side of potato salad. The food was excellent!!! The atmosphere is very relaxed and laid back.... This is a place you shouldn't pass up, and I'll definitely be back!

Seated right away and our server made us aware of the happy hour expiring so thought we were set for a good meal. Food came out reasonably fast, and though my cesar salad had the dressing on it (i had requested it on the side) I didn't say anything, figured i would survive. And we never saw our server again...

Let me be fair and say that the food was good and at a fair price. Our family of 5 arrived at 1:00 and was told it would be 10 minutes before we could sit. Looking around there was 9 empty tables (half full). We asked to sit anyway knowing it would take 10 minutes to start service. They cleared... More

We stopped in for lunch, were seated pretty promptly, the restaurant was about half full. Being the week between Christmas and New Years, probably the busiest week on the island, we did not expect to be seated so quick. Our server never gave a name, and seemed at first to be somewhat disinterested in our service, but she was actually... More

Rosie's was a great place to have lunch. The decor and overall vibe is sort of retro, and fun. The food was wonderful--Flavorful dishes, good portions and an overall very good experience.

A waitress at the Green Flash in Captiva told us about this place and she was spot-on accurate. There were only a few parties in the restaurant when we ate there which made me a little nervous but it turned out to be one of the best meals that we had on Sanibel. The food was delicious, service was great... More
