Went there for lunch, have a nice variety of meals to choose from, good wine list, and lots of beers on tap. Very nice atmosphere to sit outside - inside its a bit noisy and they play the music too loud for a lunch.

George and Wendy's has such a great atmosphere. Out on the patio with palms all around. You feel tucked away from the traffic. The food was very good. We had a variety of things from fish tacos to their salads

We sat out on the patio despite the cooler temps. Loved to see the dog water dishes for people walking dogs. We didn't go... More

We loved this restaurant! Our waiter Marcus was very attentive to our needs, we had a nice table outside on a gorgeous evening, right at sunset. The crab leg dinner was served hot, displayed beautifully on the plate, and was delicious

An inviting place with a nice patio, lively bar and comfortable dining room. Menu is fabulous with many tantalizing-sounding names, like bleu cheese encrusted salmon or drunken grouper. BUT ... the waiter was very personable and helpful, but not very attentive; e.g. the drinks we ordered when our food came didn’t arrive until we were done eating. When the beer... More

This was the first restaurant we tried on Sanibel this year. The food and service were good. The problem was we later dined at other establishments which far surpassed this restaurant in both food quality and wait staff.
