Lunch between Fort Meyers airport & Sanibel

Any ideas for eating lunch before we get to the Sanibel Causeway( after arriving at the Fort Meyers Airport)? We usually food shop prior to crossing over to the Island. Any suggestions are appreciated.Our flight arrival time is mid afternoon this time.Thanks.

How about Gator Bites? It sits in front of a Publix just before you get to the causeway (Summerlin or McGregor).

Doc Fords in Fort Myers Beach! Very easy to get to from the airport and then very easy to get to Sanibel from there. The Publix in Sanibel Beach Place on Summerlin is on the left, right before the Causeway bridge.

Rib City for BBQ, just off the beaten path, off Summerlin, on San Carlos in the Target Plaza for food shopping. On your way..

or Ruby Tuesday on Summerlin and shop at Publix. I love Doc Fords and now want to try Gator Bites :) These are just other ideas.

We were in Sanibel in April and on the way to the airport from Sanibel we figured we would stop and eat. Funny thing is we never saw anything we wanted to stop at - that was open. It was around 11 a.m. - we ended up eating at Taco Bell (yuck) - We drove past some chain restaurants like Chili's and Fridays but we wanted something more original - but we never did see anything. However we did end up having a snack in the airport in the Southwest Airlines area - some rum place? I cannot remember the name - but it was better than the taco bell!

I suggest waiting and eating on Sanibel!

Had a more than decent lunch at "Bahama Breeze" (crn of Ben Pratt & Rt. 41) last time in. Very accommodating for special dietary needs, cold Red Stripe, and not too pricey.
