This choice was dictated by an available parking space but it worked out well. They had a good selection of beers, the gentleman entertaining sang a good mix of songs that ranged from James Taylor to Jerry Jeff Walker and beyond. Ate on the porch, our lunch was pleasing.

A couple of years ago, we ate here as a family group and had a really fun time, with typical but good island food. This is not that place. Our last visit turned up really ordinary food, indifferent service and a generally tired-looking facility. What happened? Best thing were oysters on the half shell . . . hamburger served just...

Stopped here late afternoon for drinks and entertainment. Wait staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was festive with a live guitarist. Fun place!

We actually went to Otters twice...once for breakfast and once for dinner. Both were winners and both allowed us to sit outdoors, a real luxury for a northerner in January. The breakfast was excellent with first rate poached eggs and omelets. Dinner though was the highlight as we listened to live music and ate spicy seafood chowder along with conch... More

Island prices but didn't find Island quality food. It was okay but I probably won't go back. The crayons and paper tablecloths don't add to the ambiance. My grandchildren don't need to be 'entertained' during their meal. If they did I wouldn't take them out to eat.

Had lunch there and the music was nice. Crab cakes were just so so. The salads looked really good and the outdoor seating is nice

I am not a fish lover as my husband is and there are only a few seafood dishes I eat and grouper is one if them, so I have tried this at several restaurants on Captiva & Sanibel & we ate there 3 times within the 2wk period we were on the island. I had the crunchie sandwich & it... More

If you are wanting to go out for a special much or dinner, get a spot at the bubble room. This was beside it and we didn't want too eat pizza at the hotel. As far as food goes its very average. I didn't taste anything amazing, yet nothing terrible. Honestly, its not worth your time.

Stopped at RC Otters for lunch with friends who had never been before. We make a 2 hour drive to this spot every year that we vacation in Englewood, FL, Not disappointed again as service was pleasant, fast and food was very good. The best fish tacos I've ever had, grilled mahi sandwich and shrimp basket was had by our... More
