We have been to RC Oetters many times for lunch. Beer is cold, with great selections. Lunch music is fun. Everything is delicious. We give props to the best Conch Fritters in Florida and the friendly service. Thanks to Angie for a good time!

This place is authentic and doesn't try to be otherwise. It serves beers and wine....offering some very good local brew and the wine list while not extensive seemed to have a little something for everyone and was priced well. The Service was attentive and friendly and actually went the extra mile for our group. We were 10 and they handled... More

Love the atmosphere at RC Otters - outside, casual seating, live music and large selection of food. Highly recommend the beans and rice with either steak or chicken. Relaxing place to spend an afternoon or evening!

Large portions, and a fun atmosphere. Nice roomy booths that are great for large parties. The kids loved it as well as the adults. Fun kitchy , island atmosphere.

Have been going to Captiva for 8 years and there is not much in the way to brag about as to restaurant meals but, the crunchy grouper tacos at R C Otters are the best. Always have them and they are the best meal on the island. Additionally a special shout out goes to both Cecil and Angie as being... More

I decided this place looked like I should try it out and boy I'm I glad I did. They had coconut shrimp for a special and it was fabulous. They had a guy playing music outside and he was real good. I'm glad I had to go to the airport later that evening because if not I could have sat... More

Went here twice for lunch and loved it. We thought it had the best Island atmosphere of any restaurant we went to. Outside seating with entertainment gives a tropical feel. The ring game is an extra bonus. The food and service were both good but it is the atmosphere we enjoyed the most.

From the live music of the one man band to the service, this place seems to have it all. I had the blackend mahi mahi, salad, conch fritters and two beers. All was very good! Ticket was about $40. Special shout out to our waitress Jasmine who did a superb job while also answering all our questions about the resturant... More

We stopped here last year for drinks and apps after a beach day on Sanibel. This year, my husband remembered it and I am so glad! We stopped in late afternoon, grabbed a table outside in the shade, live music once again, just a one man band, but nice! I had wine and fish tacos. We were all happy, kids... More
