We can't get enough of the food and atmosphere at RC Otters, so much that we visited twice this year. Great service, fantastic music, plenty of beer selection, and just great food. Love the bronzed grouper (bronzed anything really!)

During our 14 day stay on Captiva, we visited here 4xs! With so many local spots offering similar food, we found RC Otters to be the most consistent and friendly. Loved the fish tacos, & grouper Ruben but it was the black beans and rice that we went back for each time.

Food was very tasty and reasonable priced. We ate outside and it seems that they could take some extra time to clean up a bit better. We sat next to some bushes and there was LOTS of trash in them and even a broken wine glass. The outside tables have paper on them that they are supposed to change, but... More

We visited on a Sunday morning around 9am and were sat within 5 minutes. Great! We thought! NOPE! Our waitress didn't come greet us or take our drink order for about 20 minutes after being sat and they were not even busy. My husband ordered a coffee and the waitress brought 3 other tables their drinks before bringing him his... More

We were able to sit outside on the porch for breakfast - it was so pleasant and comfortable, with a nice sea breeze blowing. Our service was great, and the food was delicious - I had a breakfast burrito & my husband had eggs benedict.

My husband and I have a tradition of riding our bikes from Sanibel to Captiva and back on each island stay. It is about 26 miles round trip for us. It is a reward for us to have lunch at RC Otters. We always get the grouper Reuben and it keeps us coming back each time we visit the island.

Food was good. My kids enjoyed drawing on the white paper on the table and the hook game. Easy walk from South Seas Island Resort.

Great spot to grab lunch and listen to music . They have a great fish of the day sandwich , and we also enjoyed the grouper bites. Be advised that they don't have a hard liquor license , and somehow made pina coladas with a wine based product (not as potent as the "real thing" yet very delicious!).

This menu has so much to pick from-- I would have gone back, during our vacation, if everyone in my group wanted to. And very reasonably priced compared to other places in the area. We ate outside and I thought the service was good. Parking is tricky so if you can get there without a car, I would suggest it.

Thank steph8564
