Great food, music every afternoon and evening and 5 steps from our Inn. Get the fish tacos for lunch or dinner and the eggs any way are good in morning.

WAY up there on Captiva. Friendly. Real cooking. Worth the drive. We went twice in two days. Mellow live music. Sanibel and Captiva have tonnes of great restaurants, but this one is one of the good ones. Didn't have the key lime pie - likely as big mistake.

Great place to sit outside and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. Live music during dinner - food is good and consistent. Save room for key lime pie!

We were there for brunch. Love the tropical atmosphere and noticed they sometime have entertainment in their open air cafe. Wait staff were pleasant and courteous and efficient.

Crab cakes Benedict, very good. My friend and I both liked, came with breakfast potatoes, not very flavorful. Not crowded. Good orange juice

Went for the Key Lime pie but it was high on presentation and low on taste. Very creamy; could barely taste the lime.
