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.

The bisque was really good. The conch fritters were also tasty. I had the pulled pork which I enjoyed. Laid back atmosphere.

...and at a fraction of the price. It's an unpretentious cafe serving well-sized portions of fresh seafood and other favorites. While you won't leave here thinking you had the best meal of your life, you also won't leave hungry nor thinking you've been cheated (see my Bubble Room review).

My family and I have been vacationing at South Seas and eating at RC Otters for years. We used to consider RC Otters a great little dive - good for breakfast or a beer or lunch. Not so much after our last visit. They offer fish taco's and I love fish taco's. When I asked that my fish be grilled... More

Neat interior decor but had a perpetual fish smell that other seafood restaurants were able to do with out. Food was rather greasy and lacking compared to other seafood places. Overall a decent meal for a decent price but we didn't go back this year for those reasons.
