First time to try this place. Good amount of outdoor seating. Live music. Large choice of beers on tap. Server would not let us try a tiny sample of any of the beers. Said it was not allowed. So I ordered a bottled Corona. Conch fritters were not good-too chewy and tasteless. Then the seafood fajitas arrived. Only 2 shrimp... More

What a fun place. Some of the best shrimp I've ever had served to me. Huge and cooked to perfection (and I'm picky!). A copious selection of beers and the 3 ladies sitting next to us were stoked to score the last 2 pounds of fresh stone crabs. Great servers; I did find the young woman who seated us brusk... More

The breakfast is excellent and the fried shrimp at lunchtime is to 'die for' ,we can't wait to visit again during our vacation on Captiva in June 2017

We had an excellent dinner there. Seafood quesadilla, lots of fish more than seafood but very good. Husband had blackened grouper, good seasoning balance, nice coleslaw. Key lime pie one of the best I had in ages, cooked fresh everyday, it was a delight!

Our evening there was kinda so-so. Drink menu was not so great. Neither of us enjoyed our food that much. I asked for something I'd never tried before (so that was on me). Wife had a routine pasta dish that was over-cooked. Server didn't comment or ask when she removed our half-eaten plates. On the plus side, the music was... More

Really liked the atmosphere on the outside patio; Bobbie Blakey providing musical selections; the waitress was very personable and knowledgeable; food was consistently good. Higher prices than on the mainland, but that is expected. Parking is tight but they have quite a few spaces.

We have eaten here a lot over the past 10 years and most always have been satisfied with the our meal and service. Recently however my husband ordered the Crunchy Grouper which was not Grouper. We are Floridians and we know our local fish and what he was served was definitely not Grouper. He thinks it was Swai which is... More

We always eat at RC Otters when we're on Captiva, and enjoy every time! The stone crab is delicious, bronzed grouper wonderful, great service, and the music makes the atmosphere perfect.

We went to RC Otters for a late lunch, we started with conch fritters which were good. I had a group sandwich my wife had fish and chips. Everything was decent.

Thank bobkap
