If you like beer come here!!

Captiva is loaded with restaurants that can only serve wine and beer, shuts down by 9pm and is known for mediocre food, so when it was recommended to us on a Friday night to try RC Otters, we were a bit skeptical, but no worries, we were pleasantly surprised!

Nice casual place with live music, cold beer and clam boil to die for! I wish I could post a photo! That was absolutely gourmet! A must if you are a bit hangover :)

This was a quaint cute little place with wonderful service and yummy food! Don't miss the key lime pie! The atmosphere was fun. Our waiter, Joe, was fantastic!

Real island atmosphere in relaxed casual setting. Great service, fresh food, cold beer, and vintage live music. Great for groups. Family frendly.

I've visited RC Otters multiple times over the past 10 years. The food is good. Prices are too! This time we stopped by for appetizers, drinks, & key lime pie. This key lime pie is DELICIOUS. Get it even if it's to go! The restaurant itself is way too hot and way too dirty. Sticky benches, floors, & tables Fresh... More

The moment we went inside, we smelled a foul odor. It was extremely outdated. Food was average at best and little pricey. Only good thing was live music.

My wife and I were pretty disappointed during our first visit. We had a server who was inattentive. The peel and eat shrimp appetizer was very good and very fresh. However, the Ceasar salad both of us for our entre was pathetic; a bunch of cut up romaine lettuce with dressing that did seem to be Ceasar. The thing that... More

I almost gave it a three because it was hot inside the restaurant. Recessed lights shining right down on you in many places. Tough to control temp with doors opening constantly but at least get some low wattage, low heat lights. The food was wonderful... The service was wonderful.... So, it gets a four. But.... Sit outside

RC Otter's is an adorable little restaurant in Captiva that my husband and I like to visit each year. We typically go for breakfast and to enjoy some morning sunshine on their patio. I usually order the Captiva breakfast burrito, which is huge, it can definitely be split between two people or the leftovers can be taken home. My husband... More
