You were right in leaving the Mucky Duck. A friend suggested I try their steaks. I waited over 2 hours for a table just to get one of the worst meals I’ve ever had and a rude server to boot.
One place really sticks out in my memory on Sanibel. The Thistle Lodge at Casa Ybel was excellent. Had a beautiful view of the Gulf and I have to say their crab cakes were fantastic.
