We went to Captiva July 22-24 to see the South Seas Island Resort - having done quite a research project on everything from golf, villas and food we did find that Doc Ford's was the place NOT to miss for good rum drinks and food - So we stopped there for lunch on the first day, went back for dinner - then lunch and late appetizer with a drink next day- and then stopped in for lunch before we left... they serve a full glass of wine for 1/2 the price you'd pay for the little bit you get at other places... They had a great selection of tap beer, we tried the Key West Ale which was really good... The small lettuce salad was quite large, and the Mahi added to it was 'out of this world prepared perfectly! The paella was awesome, Calamari appetizer was huge and delicious as was the fish fingers...The food was not only delicious and prepared fresh, but the quantity was very generous... This is a 'must' if you're heading out to the South Seas Resort. As you can tell, other than a scoop of ice cream at North Point Scoops, we ate all our meals there...

As always, TVs everywhere. Sterile atmosphere. Server too busy to care or notice us. Peel and eat shrimp very poor - at least they took them off the menu.

We ate here once and thereafter drove back to Sanibel for dinner.

Not recommended.

Love Doc Ford's menu. Just tried the jerk pork chop with plantains and it was delicious. Very nice menu, friendly, helpful staff and perfect location for visitors staying in South Seas. The new location is perfect.

Came at an off hour for an early dinner. Had a great rum punch drink special. Our waiter was super friendly and helpful and the whole family loved our meals. He recommended a dessert -- a chocolate bananna bread -- our best dessert of our trip

It was better than the two other places we had dinner. The food was exactly as the server described.
