Came by boat for lunch, had the cobia tacos which were very good! Excellent and friendly service! Ping pong and bean bag toss set up outside, fun to do while waiting for your food! Looking forward to coming back.

Recently a captive there as result of our boat excursion stopping there /only show in town theory/ have been there numerous times in past - always enjoyed it - but the now price of $18.00 for a very small piece of grouper on a bun is ridiculous - I know grouper is high but have been eating it all over...

Nice little outdoor beach bar. We looked forward to sitting out, enjoying eats and drinks, however greatly disappointed in lack of entertainment and hours! Live musician starts around noon until 4pm! Limited drink selection. Place shuts down early! We ended up having our happy hours at our rental house!

Arrived by boat with my parents and infant son. We had a great server named Fletcher who took good care of us. The grouper was amazing and it was a good portion size, well worth the trip out here.

We tried all different flavors of ice cream and loved them all. The outside area was very nice. It has a nice island feel.

We ate lunch at Barnacle Phil's several times during our visit to North Captiva in January. You're on island time here...try not to be hurried, and just enjoy it, as service can sometimes be a little slow. Very good food. My husband and I especially enjoyed the peel n eat shrimp. Very relaxed and informal place, and when weather cooperates,... More
