I absolutely enjoyed our dinner. The food was great. My husband ordered steak which was cooked to perfection. I had snapper rolled up in dough. The atmosphere is relaxing while they had a pianist play piano. Its right across from the beach so we took a walk afterwards. It is on the pricier side compared to the restaurant next door,... More

I booked in advance and noted that this was an anniversary dinner -- a waste of time, as nobody noticed. When we arrived, parking wasn't obvious so I asked the hostess for guidance, only to receive a shrug of the shoulders as a reply. Only when I mentioned our reservation did I get some grudging guidance. Those minor annoyances out... More

My wife revisited after 25 years away from Captiva. She had fond memories of dining in the delightful restaurant with the elegance of a pianist playing songs from the great years of American singers and song writers. We were delighted to find Frank still playing with the same style and grace. The food was also excellent and the service attentive.... More

One Place where you can believe the excellent reviews. Plenty of parking, greeted immedtiately upon entering. Waiter was at our side promptly gave us our menus and explained the specials. My only complaint is that their wine list is lacking. Both my Wifes Lamb Chops and my Steak were excellent. Dessert was rich and enough for two people. This is... More
