Nice outside dining with live music in the evening

We enjoyed dinner and breakfast here. It was nothing special, just good, hot, satisfying and reasonably priced. Waiter was pleasant and accommodating. We sat outside - enjoyable for people watching and highly recommended. Get there before 6:00 if you want an outside table. Would definitely return.

Had the calamari which was very chewy and lacking flavor. Outside area was great to sit and enjoy and amazing solo performer.

The menu has a great combination of ocean town offerings with classic comfort options. We enjoyed a couple breakfasts and dinners at RC Otters. The breakfast burrito was a fav am offering while the shrimp was a repeat evening selection. The Service Team was friendly and helpful.

So many reviews call this unpretentious restaurant one of Captiva's best- I will certainly agree after a wonderful lunch. We had two great lunch items and, according to my wife, the best fish tacos ever. Very friendly staff, nice mellow music, and a very good beer Selection. Definitely worth a try!

we dropped into this restaurant last Thursday for a bite to eat after visiting Sanibel and Captiva Islands. the waiter, Jo, was lovely, especially when we mentioned he looked like one of our friends back in the UK! Food was good but the oh was particularly impressed with the beer selection! Wishing he tried the beer flight now! Thanks

Great place to sit and take in the relaxed vibe of Captiva! Delicious food, prompt service, extra friendly and helpful staff. . . . . this set the tone for an amazing first visit to Captiva. Our nice server told us where to go for a day boat trip and we booked that exact trip! And it was wonderful. So... More

There was no wait at 6 p.m. for two people! We expected to wait an hour but we're given a table immediately during spring break! The server was slow and not the friendliest. The food was good, but not the most filling. The live music was fantastic. This place was good but not nearly as good as The Bubble Room.

Stopped for dinner tonight at R C Otters and we had the best time. Nice patio is shady and dog friendly and everyone was so very nice to Fido. Live entertainment was most enjoyable from Creedence to Seeger. Dinner was outstanding and priced reasonably. Food was better and priced less than at a couple other so-called upscale restaurants on Sanibel.... More

It's across the street from the Captiva Island Inn. We had breakfast one morning, and it was great. There is live music in the evenings.
