    The Lazy Flamingo: Great Seafood

    With its flaming-pink facade and corrugated
    steel walls, the Lazy Flamingo is not only a fun
    place, but the food is excellent ....

    They claim that if their seafood was any
    fresher, they would be serving it under
    water ....

    The Lazy Flamingo: where the locals eat

    This restaurant is great: one of the reasons for a second visit to Sanibel! It's informal and, in keeping with the island, has a nautical theme.

    The food is straightforward. Great, fresh shrimp (with the Baltimore local spice Old Bay on them). Also loads of Florida food including grouper and conch.

    I hear the marinara sauce is great, and regret not ordering a side of it, along with what's supposed to be the stellar garlic bread.

    Also, about 45 racoons (or so) chow down in the dumpster behind the restaurant. This can be rather entertaing, or disguisting, depending on your perspective. Either way, they have very good taste.

    Favorite Dish: The grouper sandwich (grilled and not fried) is one of the best fish (or any) sandwiches I've ever had. It comes with either fries (good) or caesar salad (very good).

    Casual, great food, good seafood, and great service. The motto is teamwork at this restaurant. We had a great meal here. I had linguini with clam sauce, and had enough to eat it for lunch next day. Only downside, no salad with dinner. (We like them to 'throw' in a salad, and soup for free) Delaware restaurants have us spoiled.
