When traveling to Sanibel/Captiva we always make sure we stop for a meal & drinks at RC Otters! The kids love playing the ring toss game, the live music is great (more guests should acknowledge the talent and not be such a rough crowd- such as meaning they should clap at the end) The outdoor seating and dining is the...

We stayed right on Andy Rosse Lane for 2 weeks back in July. "Otters" was our post-beach hangout spot! Food was great (conch fritters were a favorite) and the staff even better! One particular server that waited on us multiple times (Cecil) even noticed how I had scratched my bug bites to death...he even went around back and cut some... More

We stayed on Andy Rosse Lane for 2 weeks back in July. We made an almost-daily trip to "Otters" for bites and beers. Food was great...love the conch fritters! And the staff even greater! If fact, 1 particular server (I believe his name was Cecil) noticed how I had severely scratched my bug bites...he actually went around back & cut... More

This is our 2nd time to the island and we are being more adventurous trying new restaurants. The staff was wonderful and very friendly. The menu is decent but the food was just average. The shrimp were over cooked and salads a little bland. Compared to other restaurants it was just average.

Wait staff was less than helpful. The menu is ok, but the food is average at best. Not a good value for the price. Took forever to get food when there were very few customers.

RC Otter's is a venue with character, and the staff fit right in! They were cheerful, friendly and prompt. My beloved had a classing "bacon and egg" breakfast and I had "Egg On A Roll" -- think of an open breakfast sandwich, egg, cheese and Canadian Bacon. Hard to go far wrong -- but also hard to excel, and so,... More

Interesting decor. Paper tablecloths and paper towels for napkins. Breakfast, lunch and dinner - served indoor or outdoor. Noisy. Good service. Casual atmosphere. Family oriented.

We have loved RC Otters since we began visiting the islands in 2002 so when we became full time residents at the end of January 2016 we immediately dined there. Our delightful server, Thiel, explained to us that there was a resident discount and that we should let our servers know in the future that we lived on Sanibel. We... More
