Located on the top of Pine Island in what seems to be the end of the world, Capt'n Con's does have a little bit of a Key West feel. We were told that the current building was from 1904 and it sat on top of...the old 1870 jail building. Located right on the water, we had a great view of it and the fishing pier from the window of the bar section. We loved the bar dining area and there is a larger dining area as well as outside patio dining. My oyster sandwich was great with the oysters cooked perfectly and the Key Lime pie was fantastic. My son liked his chicken tenders and we were loaded with very good fries. Our waitress was exceptional, answering all of our questions and giving us some local insight. This place has a perfect casual comfortable atmosphere, a large reasonably priced menu with great food. There is also a small gift shop right thru the bar area with local crafts, jellies, shirts etc.. We would most certainly stop back here if in the area again.More

Everything I have tried is great, but you have to try this trick. Have the seafood chowder. Put the spoon straight in the cup or bowl. It will stand up on it's own, because there is sooooo much seafood (clam, shrimp, fish) in the chowder!!!...Take a picture and post it here! Be sure to have a piece of pie too. The hard thing will be choosing which flavor to have!More

We were taken here by friends of ours while we were vacationing in Sanibel. First, they ordered fried mushrooms. These are the BEST mushrooms I have ever eaten. I am always on the hunt for a good battered mushroom and they nailed it here! They...are large and the app is share able. Then came the fish. I believe it is Friday and Saturday nights they have all you can eat fish and shrimp. Amazing, tasty, yum fish and shrimp. These are two different orders, one or the other. Priced reasonably. They also came with salad and potato.More

Felt safe here. Tables closed off. Masks were worn. Happy service throughout the meal. Definitely try the chowder. Recommendation was the Seafood. Chowder. Yes, your spoon will stand erect as it’s that thick and filled. Had sandwiches: tomato & melted cheese, and flounder. Both were...fresh and filling. Tables and Dinning room were clean. Glad we came here. Nice drive thru Pine Island to the north end, Bokalia.More

My husband and I were on an RV trip, staying on Pine Island, and decided to drive to the north end to see if he could do some fishing. While the weather was no conducive to fishing, I was able to get some great photographs...of the area, and we had a delicious lunch at Capt'n Con's. My husband had a seafood chowder that was absolutely delicious - creamy, and full of all sorts of good seafood. We had a table overlooking the north end of the island and the fishing pier and enjoyed watching people come and go during our lunch. The service was prompt and friendly, the menu quite extensive, the food excellent, and the prices reasonable. There is a small gift shop attached to the restaurant where I found a lot of very unique handmade items, one of which - a pepper jam - I have ordered several additional jars on line.More

Amid the rising tensions over the spread of the Corona Virus, restaurant owners have closed off their dinning areas and provide a take out service only. Taking the ride to Pine Island, Bokeelia is it's northern point. This restaurant lies across from the fishing pier....Coming up to the door we saw the menu and the cashier, Rachel, came out to take our selections. It was just a 10 minute wait and the food was bagged up, still piping hot. My wife and I took it and ate in our car. It was wonderful and filling. Hopefully, we'll be able to return to this establishment when the current worldwide situation is over.More

The place is old and run down. Very loud inside. Food OK. I had the Flounder and clams. One of several specials on the back page. Too much breading on the fish. The clams were crumbs and chewy. I could not chew several bite fulls....I had to remove them with my napkin. The salad was fresh and crisp. The rice was plain. I prefer dirty rice. There are various sides to order. Skip the rice. No flavor. The banana cream pie was the best part.More

You won't go away hungry...or be disappointed! The seafood is dyno-mite at Capt. Con's....and they even have great burgers, fries and prime rib. The service is fast and professional - the view awesome. You can watch the bay or the fishermen on the pier. The...seafood...top notch. I recommend Capt Con's highly......More

Stopped by for a quick lunch after a morning of bicycling the island. We were seated promptly with a nice outside view of the water. We attempted to order flounder and shrimp from the lunch menu. Waitress returned to our table and informed us they...had no flounder but would replace flounder with swai fish?? I quickly looked up swai fish online and discovered it was from the Mekong River in Thailand and there were several websites recommending to not eat the fish because of the water pollution. We asked the waitress to substitute all shrimp in place of the flounder. She quickly returned to our table and said that was not possible. We had already decided we were not eating swai fish so we chose a shrimp basket with fries instead. The food arrived quickly with the shrimp overcooked and tough. The fries were more like mashed potatoes, soft and mushy, than French fries. The two positives I took away from this experience was the nice view of the water and the service of our waitress. She tried to please but was overruled by management. Food was horrible! Recommendations would be to pack a snack or picnic lunch, sit beside the water and enjoy the view.More

Service was spot on and the food came out hot. Quite a choice of pies for dessert. The beef and gravy open face dinner with a baked potato was especially good. Nice size portions - A couple of us had leftovers. The waitstaff work hard...to give you a great experience.More
