RESTAURANT REVIEWS

Island Cow, located toward the west end of Periwinkle Way on Sanibel Island, is a great casual dining spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Both indoor and outdoor seating is available, with cow paraphernalia adorning the walls. The huge menu includes breakfast favorites, sandwiches from po-boys to patty melts, salads, seafood, barbecue, steaks, pasta and more. The children's menu is extensive. To add to your dining enjoyment, Island Cow features Starbuck's coffee and there's live entertainment during lunch and dinner. The atmosphere is friendly and the service is good! We recommend it!
