Gramma Dot's takes its name from a woman who traveled the world by ship as a teenager, before settling in Sanibel Island in 1963. The restaurant pays homage to her seafaring ways with an excellent selection of fresh seafood dishes, including Dot's "Famous Homemade Clam Chowder" (New England-style), and bacon-wrapped shrimp that, like Dot, was ahead of its time. Service is excellent and the location at the Marina is unbeatable, despite the fact that the restaurant's décor is on par with a condo owned long ago by its namesake.
