This restaurant easily serves the best food around. We ate at restaurants on Cabbage Key, Captiva, and North Captiva, and the Pink Elephant was the best by far. It was also actually less expensive than some of the others, which was ironic considering how much better its food quality is.

It was also the ONLY restaurant that didn't use styrofoam, plastic, and other "terrible-for-our-world" plates and utensils. It was nice to see real glasses and plates! The fish tacos and ham/cheese pretzel sandwiches were absolute standouts. The fries were amazing.

The only negative is the location--no water views and there were semitrucks idling in the nearby parking lot during our entire lunch, which was noisy and did not make for a pleasant atmosphere.

Delicious food, been coming here for many years. The staff are great with children and the kids love coming here for an early dinner. For late nights, you cannot beat the bar -- current trends, generous pours and inventive mixology. You can eat outside (with gas heaters in the chilly months) or inside. Great fun. Great food.

Stayed in Boca Grande for a few days and went to the Pink Elephant on our last night of out visit. The atmosphere and the food is awesome. Our server, Brandi was not only delightful to chat with but extremely helpful in suggesting meals as well well as wine. If you are in Boca Grande make sure to visit!!!

the pink elephants on some the drinks are very cute. The reality ... the special fries came out cold as did one of four entrees .. Sooo, bad that they took them off of our bill ... cudos to the management ... if you have a problem , they own it and fix it! I would certainly go back there anytime.
