OK. I've lurked for awhile and now need some help. We're going to be on Sanibel for a few days beginning May 5, my wife and I and daughter+son-in-law. We'll probably do some casual food several times, but at least once for dinner want a nice place, great food, good presentation, and quiet enough so that we can actually hear ourselves talk to each other. If it helps, we're staying on Beach Road off of East Gulf Drive.
Some people talk about Doc Fords. Others rave about Sweet Melissa's. And others like Thistle Lodge. Which is the best? or did I miss something special that only TA locals know about? Ah yes, one of our party happens to be a vegetarian, though she has been known to enjoy a piece of chicken or fish on a rare occasion, and always seems happy to put together some vegetable items from a menu that satisfy her.
