Sanibel Island Restaurant Reviews

These are our personal reviews of restaurants we have eaten at over the last thirteen years visiting Sanibel Island, Florida. Remember, we donít have children and though we like children, we donít necessarily want loud children next to us when we eat. Thus, you will see kid friendly restaurants do not hold the same allure for us that other eating establishments do!!

Please find below Susan's rating system which will be seen at the end of each restaurant review.

Susan Restaurant Rating System

***** Five stars outstanding
**** Four stars great
*** Three stars good
** Two stars ok
* One star Donít Do It!

Sanibel Island, although relatively small, has some excellent restaurants. We have our favorite Sanibel restaurants that we will visit 3 or 4 times during a single vacation, but there are enough restaurants so that you can dine somewhere different every day of your trip.
