Had friends from Tampa visit who had never been to Captiva, so off we went. Lunched at Doc Ford's on the patio that was wonderful. Between the four of us we had mussels, crab cakes, pork belly rice, pulled pork sandwiches, and beach bread. Food was special, drinks were great, and our server from Nashville was very professional. By the time we got back to Sanibel on our way home, we stopped at Doc's there for dessert and coffee....Tres Leche cake to die for, and entertainment on the patio, waiter even brought over some bug spray for our feet, how good does it get ?

Last visit in October, we found Doc Ford's had added another location near our resort. Same great menu, and even more room for Sunday football! We had a great time, and the food was delicious. The lime panko fish sandwich is one of my favorite meals on the island. All of the other entrees we have tried are equally appealing. My husband said the Rib Eye was perfect...and he is very picky. Outdoor eating was a nice experience on another visit.

Doc Ford's is my absolute favorite place in Southwest Florida! I am traveling to Sanibel soon and am looking forward to checking out the new location on Captiva. I am hoping I can be there when they have their scallop and black linguini special. It is FABULOUS!! Thanks for many great meals!

We had a nice meal here. The food is good, the drinks are creative and excellent, and the bar scene is lively. It's a little loud, and I'd recommend making a reservation on a weekend or high season, but the service was good and the food was tasty. All in all, a good meal for a good value.

My wife and I went to both Sanibel and Captiva locations. Both excellent quality and value in a fun friendly atmosphere fish tacos our best I've had and the feature fish special has always been great. Even the rice and black bean that accompany the meals are done perfectly.
