Lazy Flamingo Sanibel Menu

The Lazy Flamingo Sanibel menu is full of famous dishes paired with an ice-cold beer. What can be better on a hot summer day?

For a starter, we recommend the raw bar and grill. Try the ice-cold oyster on the half shell that is shucked to order — meaning they are fresh! If you don’t love oysters, try The Pot — your choice of two dozen oysters or clams or a combination of both, steamed in beer with special spices.

For lunch, try one of the burgers or sandwiches. We recommend getting the Mesquite-Grilled Grouper sandwich with special seasoning and tartar sauce. Try one of the many domestic drafts, premium drafts, bottled longnecks, or draft IPA pitches to share with the table to wash down the tasty seafood!

Feeling hungry for lunch? Need a cold beer? Head to The Lazy Flamingo Restaurant during your stay on Sanibel Island. Once you’re done with this tasty meal, head back to your accommodation from Tropical Escape Sanibel for a relaxing evening in Florida.
