Lunch

Great view and very good waitress. Very reasonable prices but the food was average. Not terrible but not memorable. They say they are known for their soup which we did no have so give it a try. Dessert excellent

If you want a comfy place that prices their food right this is it. Really a good value. The everyday special is a good deal. Was happy to find a nice place like this with good food at realistic prices. Best deal on our travels this time.

Three of us did carryout and ordered the bacon cheeseburger with fries and coleslaw. All burgers were cooked according to request and they all were delicious. The order was ready quickly and was hot and fresh. I would recommend this establishment to anyone visiting Bokeelia.

Food was lousy and service was slow. Beautiful view but building is falling apart. Would not go there again.

We checked out Capt'n Con's during Spring Break this year. Despite seeing some bad reviews I am awfully glad we went. We arrived right around noon and were able to get a picnic table outside right away (which we must have had good timing because the place was packed by around 12:30). I love the location. Very quiet and relaxing... More

My husband and I met friends here for an early supper. The drive out is interesting. I especially like seeing the palm tree nurseries. The restaurant itself is very informal and eclectic, with mismatched tables, chairs, place settings that make for an old Florida experience. We were so early that we were able to sit at a table by the... More

This place is small and right across the street from the water. We were here last year and came back again. The people were very friendly and my fish was excellent. The fries could have been better (frozen type). The coleslaw was good but they didn't give you enough. Overall a very good experience and no complaints except for the... More

The flounder was obviously breaded and frozen, deep fried and baked. Card board coated. Grouper was cold. Potatoes were cold. But the fish and the shrimp were so disappointed. Who eats at the pier thinking they are getting nothing better than a poor quality fish stick? Never, ever again

Restaurants that are off the beaten path need to offer something extra-special to merit the time and effort that diners invest to get there. For my money, Capt’n Con’s doesn’t make the cut. While the place does have a scenic waterfront location and a classic exterior, the interior has a “needs fixing up” look, the seafood is no better than... More
