With a dive bar vibe and Guy Fieri's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" kind of menu, it's no wonder this venerable Sanibel spot has been around for so long. It looks it, too, but don't judge a dive by, well, never mind. The fish shack ambiance is nothing original here, though it seems more authentic than newer places that pay a lot of money to make themselves look worn in. Among the signature items, The Pot is a definite highlight—a marvelous mishmosh of two dozen select oysters or clams or a combination of both, steamed in beer with special spices, celery, and onion, all in their own fresh juices, and served in the pot they were steamed in. There are also very hot and very delicious chicken wings. Despite the barfly ambiance, Lazy Flamingo happens to be very child friendly, with friendly staff giving the lil' ones crayons, Frisbees, and whatever else it takes to keep mommy and daddy ordering another one or three.
