There are many breakfast places on Sanibel that offer good food, prices all about the same, and nice atmosphere. Breakfast experience at Rosie's is not one which would entice me to come back again given other choices. It looks like the booths are left over from the Green Heron days. Our seats were so far from the table that you... More

Came here for breakfast with the family and our waitress was very friendly and attentive. The 2 egg option is very filling and the hash browns were probably the best I have ever had. By the way, if you like Rye bread be sure to order it as it was one of best Rye breads I have ever had. The... More

Fantastic Easter morning breakfast for my family of four! Excellent service and atmosphere! This was our first visit to Rosie's and we will definitely add it to our must-do list when we visit Sanibel! I had the crab cake eggs benedict and it was to-die-for! Probably the best eggs benedict I have ever had. Try this little gem of a... More

I went twice with my parents (who like the place). The staff are very personable. I was disappointed with my chicken salad. The chicken didn't look appetizing. The two times I was there, the waiter forgot a request. I guess the second visit wasn't all bad. I enjoyed my chicken sandwich, even without the topping I asked for.

Their "Best of the Islands" crunchy grouper was not...just so-so. The main disappointment was the really tired, cold, limp french fries. They were hand cut and could have been very nice. AFTER I paid my check I brought them to the manager's attention and she chose to argue with me and insist that they had been fresh cooked...

Love getting my morning coffee on the front porch at Rosie's, and today we went in for the most delicious breakfast. Karen, our server, was delightful and appropriately engaging as we sat for more coffee and a great meal. After salivating over the many breakfast options, I settled on an omelette stuffed with 5 toppings and grits (i really wanted... More

Omg I am dreaming of our fish from Rosie's, I can not wait to go back. We have gone out for seafood numerous times since our last visit and none can compare to our meal here. Our 5 children loved their meals as well, it was an absolute pleasure, the ice cream was just as amazing as the food. We... More

As we always do when we are on Sanibel, we stopped in for a wonderful breakfast. This time I accidentally left an envelope with $300 in cash sitting on the table . The gentleman who had been our server chased us down in the parking lot to return the money. Thank you so much!!

We only came here because we were unable to go the original place we were going to eat. There were 3 tables of people . We stood at the door over 5 mins. Before being seated. When we were brought to our table near the back the music was very loud hard to hold a conversation. I timed it 20... More

Had a grouper sandwich - it was great. Staff were great, kid friendly place. Would recommend for a casual meal.
