At the Thistle Lodge, we've elevated fine dining in Sanibel Island to an art form with delicious, gourmet cuisine served in a historical setting overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Swaying palms and gently breaking waves create a memorable backdrop for beachfront dining on Sanibel Island.

The award-winning menu at the Thistle Lodge includes a blend of Floridian, European, and Asian flavors designed to please even the most discriminating palates. The seafood is fresh and hand-cut right in our own kitchen. Steaks are flown in from the Midwest and dry aged to enhance their flavor and tenderness. Even the herbs, fruits, and vegetables we use in our cuisine are custom-grown. Whether you are planning a romantic evening for two, celebrating a special occasion or simply looking for the best beachfront dining in Sanibel Island, the Thistle Lodge offers an unrivaled culinary experience. Thistle Lodge is open daily for lunch and dinner, and offers both indoor and outdoor dining. The upper level of the restaurant is available for private events.
