The Premiere Choice of Sanibel Restaurants

Sanibel Seafood Grille

Among Sanibel Island restaurants, Sanibel Seafood Grille offers truly outstanding service, atmosphere, and cuisine. We offer lunch, dinner, Sunday JAZZ brunch (seasonal), a late night menu, and daily changing specials. The focus of all our menus is fresh, local, and fun. We also have a full bar with an extensive wine list, 20 beers on tap, lots of local, domestic and craft beer bottles, and some fun drinks lists including: mojitos, martinis, and lots of other tropical favorites. We feature live entertainment including several local musicians, bands and karaoke. Our Sanibel restaurant is also an art gallery, so your dining experience is sure to be pleasing to the eye, too.

Sanibel Seafood Grille has three distinct rooms: main dining, bar (including additional dining tables, high tops and several HD TVs), and a banquet/party room. There is also beautiful outdoor seating in the lush tropical garden outside the main entrance. We are the perfect place for a family gathering, corporate party, meeting, rehearsal dinner or other special event or gathering.
