Great time with the family at the Crow's Nest tonight. The food was great, and the service, too. Casey was our server and she was friendly and attentive! We'll be back.

Great service from friendly staff. Fresh fish specials change nightly and are fabulous. Portion size also good (not massive as some USA portions can be!). Reasonably priced too. Get a booth table to watch the sunset.

We chose this spot hoping to see the sunset as we ate. You just can't. There are only a few tables along the windows and the rental properties in front block the majority of the sunset view. Our booth just beyond the hostess desk was the best chance we had. While our meals were average, I didn't think they were... More

This place is located at the Tween Waters Inn. The food was excellent as was the service. It is directly next door to the best rated restaurant in Captiva: the Old Captiva House. That is significant because the 2 restaurants share the same kitchen....making the food quality excellent, but the price affordable. Nice atmosphere. My wife said that her ribs... More

This restaurant offers convenience if you are staying at Tween Waters Inn. The food is mediocre. and fairly priced. There is a dinner buffet. They draw a crowd on Nascrab night- and it pretty much guarantees you a "crab" if you dine there on that night! Food s Ok...atmosphere is relaxed.

The place has a nice setting but that's it. The whole meal was terrible, starting with our server Casey. Very limited cheap food menu. Cocktails are $10 each. Took a long time to get service. We placed our order and waited and waited and waited. The seafood platter I got I could not tell from the heavy breading what was... More

Had dinner here on a Saturday and really enjoyed this place. Food is above average. Fisherman's platter was very nice. Seafood salad app was very good. They had a band and it was really fun. If on Captiva island this is a cool place on Saturday nights.
