We ate here several times. Food was good, but there's no full service bar. A little pricey, but everything on captiva is. Staff was friendly, and very accommodating (we were a party of 10 with several small children). Would definitely go back!!

Great grouper and sandwiches. Totally casual. Small, go early to avoid long waits. Lots of kids on our visits. Outside seating unless it's 100 degrees in July!

Nice beer selection. Husband liked conch fritters. Blackened grouper was better than Doc Ford's. Slaw was bland. Daughter said her burger tasted like Wendy's. Son liked his noodles with grilled chicken added. Inside is pretty dumpy.

Something about the combination of the food and atmosphere always makes this a favorite of ours when we visit Captiva.

Our food was good, my husband and son loved the grouper. We enjoyed sitting outside listening to the live music. We will be back again next summer. Only disappointment was the ice cream shop next door which we were told is all owned by the same person, all 3 times during our stay when we went their the service was... More

Stayed at South Seas and went off property by means of a golf cart we rented. RC Otter's is only 5 minutes from the entrance of South Seas. We had steaks and cakes, crab cakes, and fajitas. Very good variety and fair pricing. The 4 of us ate dinner for $80.00. Service was also very good. Just keep in mind,... More

My family of 5 ate here for dinner and it was awful. We are not picky people, but each of us hated our meal. The clams were awful, very chewy. The crab cake burgers tasted like they came from canned crab meat. The French dip sandwich was nothing but bland, tasteless meat with a pile of cheese on top. I... More

We stopped eating at Bubble Room and get our cake to go now. The food at Otters and Mucky Duck is better and much less expensive. Mucky Duck was closed so we ate at Otters midway between lunch and dinner. Food was adequate. Given the choice I'd go to Mucky Duck. Better food and a view.

Food was okay - long drive from the east end. Would not recommend the seafood quesadillas as the aroma was less than appealing.
