Stopped by The Island Cow with friends and family for breakfast and boy was it good. My wife had the breakfast burrito which was the tables favorite. My kids ate the breakfast fajitas which were good too. I ate the cheese omelet with the crab cake which was ok but the other stuff was way tastier. The decor is very colorful and has that tropical feel to it. The plates are hearty so take a appetite and enjoy the good food the great hospitality and go in there hungry and come out stuffed like a cow. Wish I would've made it for lunch but wasn't able to maybe next time

My favorite place on the island! Food was great (shrimp tacos)! Tried to eat all the muffins they brought to the table (want the recipe!) so good! Just make sure you get there early, that is one busy place. Good service and atmosphere, so fun!

We came to the Island Cow for lunch one day on our vacation and were very pleasantly surprised. We had our dog with us, and they offer outside seating for patrons with dogs, which was great. While they told us there would be a half-hour wait, we only waited about 10 minutes before we had a large table outside with shade and fans. The server was great, even bringing cups of water over for the dog.

The kids (and the dog) loved the muffins that they put out on the table prior to dinner. The kids got the kids chicken fingers and kids shrimp and both LOVED them. Ate almost all of their food!

Adults had the grouper tacos and the boom boom shrimp tacos. Grouper tacos were HUGE - a filet in each taco - as well as delicious. One meal could have fed both adults. The boom boom shrimp tacos were a perfect combination of sweet and spicy.

We would definitely return to this restaurant next time we are in Sanibel.

Great place to eat while your on the island. I had the reuben sandwich and it was excellent. We have ate there every year at least once over the last 5 years and have never had a bad experience.

The food was fabulous! The service was great! They have one of the largest menus I have seen which could be bad, but we had a large group and not one of us had anything that wasn't good! If your over that way stop on by because the food is GREAT!!
