Anything new in Sanibel/Fort Myers?

My family of 4 is staying at the Sanibel Harbour Resort for 4 days next week. Any new restaurants we should try? We always like the Courtside Steakhouse but never have any luck when we head toward Fort Myers. On Sanibel, we always end up at Doc Fords. We eat sushi, mexican, seafood, etc... not picky eaters.

  1. There's plenty of good restaurants especially sea food The veranda Downtowm on 2nd st Is good. My favorite seafood place is Marias Smoke house on San Carlos Just Past the Getaway marina They've got fantastic Seafood but zero atmosphere, You'll find everyone there from the rich to the homeless, Great food and nice people.

    1. the lazy flamingo is great! the grouper is outstanding. the garlic bread is awesome.peel and eat shrimp great.its reasonable.snappershot is a great place for lunch or a takeout dinner. the grilled chicken sandwich is great. they have brats and hotdogs even pizza. all great. for a great dinner go to dolce vita. it is italian and excellent. for coffee go to the bean. they have coffee lattes homemade icecream sandwiches. pinoccihios is also great for dessert. icecream and homemade chocolates. those are my favorites on the island. been going to sanibel for 18 years. i love SANIBEL!! best place in the world
