Gramma Dots

Gramma Dots  - Come to this Sanibel Marina restaurant for the freshest seafood, just dock your boat and come on in!

There's nothing like a boat ride around the islands and then a stop for lunch or dinner at an awesome restaurant where you can dine on just-caught seafood.

That's what I love about living in Southwest Florida!

I went with a group of friends one day, we left from Lovers Key and headed over to Sanibel Island.

Over near the causeway is an inlet to the Sanibel Marina, a full-service marina with ship's store, fishing charters, tours, cruises, boat rentals, yacht sales ...... and, of course, the restaurant!  We docked and headed over, starving for some of that delicious seafood.

Also known as Sanibel's Seaside Saloon, you can sit dockside out on the patio, or inside at the bar or tables where you have a good view of the marina no matter where you dine.

The style is casual and busy, with friendly service and a family fun atmosphere.

I love shrimp and decided to get a fried shrimp basket with homemade potato chips.

I sampled the chowder too, and everything was super good.  I was too stuffed for dessert ........ maybe next time.  I can't wait to go again!

It's interesting because I was just reading a Doc Ford mystery by local author Randy Wayne White.  It takes place in Sanibel, was written in 1990's and the book mentioned Gramma Dots.

The restaurant was named after Dorothy Stearns by her son.  She was a lady who loved adventure!  She had ridden camels in Egypt, and was a sailor, ballroom dancer, painter, author, and shell artist.  Dot moved to Sanibel in 1963 as a widow ........ and I would say, made Sanibel a better place!
