We had dinner here last night and were pleasantly surprised to get a table without queuing since you can't book. The service is very good and the food delicious. Three of our party had risotto which they said was very nice and I had the walnut crusted snapper which was excellent. Probably the best fish I've had for a while.... More

We enjoyed sitting at the bar and watching the bar tender, as they were free entertainment at its best! Friendly, fast and fun. We also had dinner and service was excellent, writers also fun to watch as they move! We had surf and turf and shared, with no extra cost.

We had lunch here last week and it was fantastic. I don't know about the dinner menu, but the lunch menu was VERY reasonable and the food was delicious. I had the snapper sandwich and it was amazing. They also offer a kids menu that had some really good choices. There was live music while we were there -- it... More

Went here for dinner and it was the best dinner we have had while on vacation. We ordered the paella and the angus penne pasta dish. My husband said the paella was the best he has ever had. It is not a "traditional" style but a more Floridian style with key lime essence. The mixed green salad was good with... More

Loved this restaurant. To be honest, we tried to get into the Mucky Duck but the wait was just too long. We decided to try this place instead. So glad we did! Huge drink menu, lots of food choices, excellent live entertainment! We sat outside and enjoyed the music. This place reminded me of Key West. Food was very good.... More

We ate outside and enjoyed the music, fresh air and the feel of the island. People walking by, etc. Good food but loved the atmosphere. Parking is a terrible problem. We tried to go back another night and could not find a parking space

We visited Key Lime Bistro several times during our stay. The atmosphere of this restaurant epitomizes the easy, laid back vibe of island life. Live musicians play on the patio every afternoon and evening. They usually had all the doors open across the front of the building so even if you were sitting inside you could enjoy the fresh air....

The vibe here is island festive with live music every night that cinches the mood. The food is above average. The owner has 4 restaurants on CAPTIVA. We ate at 3. RC Otter is the bargain eatery (Just skip below average food), Keylime is a step up, and the Sunshine Seafood is top-notch with excellent food and service. I had... More

Great grouper sandwich with excellent fries. A relaxing experience on a lovely terrasse. A very talented musician who was there last year and obviously was called back this year. The music alone makes your day.

On our recent trip my son and I tried as many different key lime pies as we could. Keylime Bistro lived up to it's name! It also had an enjoyable vibe to end your day with a app and a drink while enjoying the live entertainment.
