Pleasant outdoor patio for Breakfast

Pretty good breakfast--good link sausages, the long-cooking kind with good flavor. The decaf coffee had an off taste but overall not a bad breakfast... Happy to sit under an umbrella in a pleasant spot. The server was very nice.

I love RC Otters beer selection and wait staff is excellent, including management. Beers, like most drinks on the island, are expensive, but they have absolutely the best microbrew selection possibly on the entire island. It's a fun atmosphere as well and they bring in really good music each day.

Everything we've ever ordered here has been incredible. Our family favorite is the crunchy fish sandwich. Their Cuban is also wonderful. The conch fritters are a big hit for us as well! Always a happy environment and always excellent service. A must try!

We loved this place! We had dinner there on our last night on the island and on the night prior. Everything we ate was fantastic (grouper, scallops, shrimp, vegetables) and ask for Joe to be your server, he is so much fun and very knowledgable about the island.

Food was ok and tasty, good value but would not necessarily return here. Wanted to sit inside but it smelt of cooking so sat outside on the terrace which was nice nevertheless

We dined outside with our large group of 20+. The kids were entertained by the hook and ring game and the live music was good too. The service was great and food was too. I had the blackened grouper it was very good.

Hit RC Otters on Captiva for an early dinner. The beach crowd wasn't around yet at 5 so was relatively empty, but our salads and service was outstanding. I had a blackened Mahi Mahi Caesar salad while my wife had the blackened scallop and gulf shrimp Caesar . Both were perfect.

Every time we vacation on captiva island we always go to r c otters for breakfast. food is always good and fresh and is served by the two friendliest and very professional waiters Cecil and Tom. They remember us every year we come. Maybe because it's a habit we have of sitting at the same table, but I think it's... More
