The waitress said “Try the Hogfish. It’s light and flaky, full of flavor and we rarely have it on the menu”. The Hogfish was possibly the worst fish I have ever eaten. It was a wet glob of completely tasteless goo. It’s NOT light and...More

We’ve been dining at this venue for years .. from their first location on Rabbit Road to their current address near the Post Office. The selection of entrees is excellent ... a favorite being their CRUNCHY GROUPER (or shrimp). Nice ambience; service is excellent.

Plenty to choose from on this great menu. Best to book as it can be pretty busy. Good service and just a nice place to eat. Linked to the sports bar next door if you want an alternate menu.

Interesting, comfortable environment. Wide variety of foods on menu. We had both beef and fish and all dishes were delicious, prepared to our orders. Round loaves of fresh hot bread served with all dinners.

Relaxed atmosphere, more like a sports bar, busy but lively. Had fried shrimp app w spicy sauce and grouper tacos for meal. Both were great. Prices here seem a lot less than others on the island. First time there, glad we stopped in.

I am not sure they have early bird. The standard early bird in Sanibel is about 5-7, some times later in the summer, people want to stay on the beach until the last possible minute. 😍
