“Timbers Restaurant is located just next to The Sanibel Grill, Timbers is casual, but more upscale while the Grill is a sports bar, so you have an option. Timbers has great food and nightly specials that change so its always fresh and new.”

“Sanibel Grill is a great place to watch a game. They have multiple TV's surrounding the bar area. They also have great food. I have my favorites, but I dont think I have ever had a bad meal on Sanibel!”

Night Club
“Ok, HANDS DOWN, my favorite restaurant. I go every year on my birthday & blow $$$. They have THE MOST AMAZING food & atmosphere. It is on the beach (one of the only beachfront restaurants on the island), has live music with a singer & piano player, plus a small dance floor in the center of the restaurant that is great for older people or children alike- all ages have fun at Traditions. They even have a small bar. I always get the Chocolate Martini b/c it is the most amazing thing ever & worth every calorie, but they are STRONG, so watch out. Seriously. I always get the Veal Scallopini & the Warm Spinach Salad. YOU CAN'T GO WRONG. Oh. Warning: They have "Valet" parking, which is quite ridiculous b/c the parking lot is next to the restaurant. Pull up, get out, give them the keys, & then give them $5 at the end. Suck it up.”
