Dinner at the forest - Sanibel Island

Dinner at the forest

Morgan's Forest: Presentation, taste, and atmosphere! Morgan's Forest Review

This restaurant came highly recommended to us by Bob, (AKA) tropicdiver. He is an expert on this area, if you are going here, please check out his pages. As it turns out, he is also an expert in good food, his favorite eating spots, became ours too!

This is deffinately a tripple threat restaurant! They have it all! Great food, great service, and atmoshpere. There is smoke (a dry ice sort of mist) rolling around the floors. The tables are set apart, in little 'jungle' type corners for privacy. Animated animals, and animal sounds abound. Kids would really like it, and adults find it pretty neat too!

Favorite Dish: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are found here.
Cinnamon French toast...$5.95
Belgian Waffle...$4.95
Oatmeal...$2.95
Crabmeat & Swiss Cheese Omelet...$6.95

Locally caught in Gulf, mild fish blackened or broiled.....$17.95

Everyone enjoyed all of their meal here! I would go back in a minute!

Rosies Island Market & Deli: 'Famous Chicken Salad' Rosies Island Market & Deli Review

We picked up two famous chicken salad sandwiches for our ride home, and stashed them in the cooler! Sooo yummy, taste like home made. Rosie suggested them, and she was right.
$4.95, each, chips and a pickle on them.
Also got great cup of coffee here, and were on our way. The wait at the restaurant next door can be up to 1-1/2 hours at times, even in the off season. Rosies gets you on the road.

Lazy Flamingo - Sanibel Island

Lazy Flamingo

The Lazy Flamingo: Great spot to eat and drink. The Lazy Flamingo Review

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.
