This casual upstairs restaurant, with bamboo railings, oversize canvas umbrellas, and paintings of tropical scenes through faux windows, is consistently Sanibel’s best place for fresh fish and aged beef hot off the charcoal grill.

Their motto –  “We serve it fresh or we don’t serve it at all.” In the fish market out front, you can view the catch and have the chef chargrill or blacken it to order. The steaks, cut on the premises, are the island’s best. You can order a drink from the adjoining Sanibel Grill sports bar and wait for a table out on the shopping center’s porch.
