Brought the family here for a late night meal (9pm seating). The decor has been updated to a simple, clean bride-friendly atmosphere and the menu has been updated to include your choice of smaller portions or full portions. Nice touch. We each had a different entree and each was very good. Pompano in a lemon caper sauce, diver scallops, and... More

We visited the Old Captiva House with a large group, and everyone loved the experience. Even though there were 28 of us, the food came out in a reasonable time. My shrimp was yummy, and everyone else enjoyed their dinner as well. Eric was funny and did a great job of serving us, as did the other servers. The atmosphere... More

We went to this restaurant and the food was very good, fine dinning and the sunset was beautiful. When I do go back for vacation again, I'll enjoy this restaurant because of the food, piano and sunset.

The restaurant is in a nice setting. The service was average as was the food. We were expecting more after reading several reviews....maybe we caught them on a bad night, or our expectations were just too high?

The setting of the restaurant is good but, when I went, the food and service were variable. My starter was great but my main course of white fish was dry and tough - judging by the temperature of the plate and the other food on it, it had been left under the grill to re-heat for too long. My server... More

My wife and I had dinner at the Old Captiva House this evening. We had reservations and were seated promptly upon arrival. They have nice selection of their own martinis to start. We were tempted by the crab bisque, but rather chose to share the crab cakes. VERY good, and we each got a good sized cake. For entrees my... More

Fabulous food, great atmosphere, Chopin Vodka (hard to find even in the finest establishments). Food and service was outstanding! It was pricey but hey, we were celebrating our Anniversary in style. Next time you're in Captiva, don't miss this gem!

A lovely, special place to dine for special occasion. It was my birthday and so we chose Old Captiva House based on reviews. We had to move because of some pesky ants near a window, but no big deal as it had been raining daily. Our server, Robert was wonderful and even had the pianist play Happy Birthday as he... More
