Sanibel Chophouse's owner was inspired by summers spent on Sanibel Island (on Florida's Gulf Coast) to create a restaurant with an elegant, island-resort atmosphere and classically prepared steak and seafood dishes. Navigate Sanibel's surf-and-turf matrix to perform a linear computation of six meats, such as filet mignon and chicken cutlets, and four seafoods, including lobster tail and Maryland crab cake (range $24–$45, mean $32.42, median $32.50, mode $28 and $32). Or go for the easy-to-hold chophouse burger: applewood-smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, fried onion strings, and special sauce stacked atop a huge, juicy ground-beef circle (served with lettuce, tomato, pickle, and fries, $14). The menu is rife with meaty eats, such as cider-brined pork chops ($21), and dry-aged steaks, including a 20-ounce rib eye ($32).
Although dogs may not like taking a trip to the vet, a stop at Just-Pawfection has been known to bring out the pride and playfulness in even the shabbiest four-legged friends. The shop’s professional groomers can do anything from basic shampooing to full-fur cuts and nail trimmings. Rather than corral the dogs into cages or try to get them to sit around and play a game of poker, Just-Pawfection uses a leash system to tether dogs before and after their groomings.
