My husband and I recently visited Fort Myers Beach for 4 nights and decide to take a day trip to Sanibel and Captiva Island, this little restaurant by far had the best food and service of our trip.

Stopped in for lunch after a cruise with Captiva Cruse. We were in search of Stone Crabs claws and the had them. The crabs were good but the fried fish was pretty good too. Friendly service in a nice environment.

OMG, the best breakfast Burritos ever! There is little to no breakfast served here on the Island of Captiva unless your staying at South Seas Island Resort. Having said that, RC Otter's is the Bomb for breakfast. Keep um coming RC. "must have"

My wife and I were on the island and wanted to grab a bite to eat and watch a football game. As luck would have it we found both here and had a great meal, (mostly small meals) and a great time watching the ball game at the bar.

Great atmosphere, definitely has the island feel. Servers were all friendly, the service was fast, and the food was great. We all left with a full belly. We visit RC Otters every visit to Captiva!

RC Otters is always a "must" when we are on our stay-cation. Great food (had the Reuben yesterday with the BEST sweet potato fries), very friendly and attentive staff and of course, always love the music.

Thank pacnan
