Topping the food chain is a tremendous achievement, which is why humans triumphantly plant flag-like toothpicks in burgers and belt the national anthem at their steaks before devouring them. Enjoy life at the top with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of seafood and steaks at Sanibel Cottage in Webster.
Sanibel Cottage's diverse menu teems with fresh seafood, steaks, eclectic appetizers, and crave-curbing pasta dishes. Guests dive into culinary waters with the aid of 1 of 10 appetizers, included beer-marinated, fried gator bites ($9.95) and spicy sicilian calamari with kalamata olives and feta ($11.95). Topped with gorgonzola shallot butter, the 12-ounce new york strip ($24.95) transforms into surf 'n' turf on request ($5 for shrimp; market price for king crab legs). Six pasta dishes sail to the tables accompanied by house salads ($14.95–$18.95), and the early Snow Bird special of one Pirate pork chop, shimmering with an apple-cider glaze ($12.95), sates hunger between 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., giving patrons enough time to watch the winter sun set and make fun of it for going to bed so early.
The eatery's intimate dining room maintains the charm of a seaside cottage with a roaring fireplace and nautical décor peeking out from shelves built into sunny yellow walls. Diners can move to the tiki-themed tavern to place a request with the live jukebox’s acoustic guitarist or take advantage of the free WiFi soaring overhead to plan southerly hitchhiking routes.
