“BEST IN SANIBEL”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

Awesome dinner and service. The bread with olive oil/pesto. Parmesan chicken, Chilean sea bass, seafood pasta...fresh and simply. But, the Keylime pie was perfect tartness. WILL BE BACK!!!!

“Excellent food, lovely atmosphere!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

We got there late, but had a wonderful appetizer and dinner and did not feel rushed. Filet Mignon was superb!

Highly recommended. Cute gift shop to browse.

“Just OK”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

It's a large open plan style restaurant,friendly service and a large menu .
Oysters are the smallest I have seen ever .All three of us had fish which was fresh and well cooked but why spoil it with greasy, overpowering sauces ? They managed my gluten free request but had no gluten free bread .
Wine list is dull and un exciting but then several other diners around us in their vests,shorts and flip flops seemed to prefer beer !

“Very good happy hour!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We have travelled to Sanibel the last six years and always enjoy the happy hour at Traders. Good food choices, two for one wine and beer... very enjoyable. No reservations for happy hour.
