“Great food and drinks”
Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

I am a seafood lover and I can honestly say, this was the best blackened red snapper I've ever had. My wife ordered the fried grouper sandwich and it was perfectly prepared and damn tasty. Top those wonderful meals off with Boddington's and Angry Orchard crisp (for my wife) on tap and you have all the makings of a wonderful meal in a prime location to watch the sunset. Assuming they are consistent I would strongly recommend this restaurant!

“Even better than usual”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

I've been dining at this restaurant every time I visit Sanibel/Captiva Islands for many, many years. It never gets old. The food is always great and they pour the best Black and Tan anywhere. They also have a Black and Blue featuring Blue Moon. The setting on the beach is nice, overlooking the Gulf. And you can always get a window seat (there's a joke there)! Service was friendly and efficient. I'll go back at anytime I'm in the area. Highly recommend it, but get there early or wait.

“Cozy Beach Spot w/Old School Charm”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Stopped in for lunch, midweek, in July. Early enough to get parking in their tiny parking lot. Had no wait for a table for six, however place filled up fast shortly after 12:00. Hostess/wait staff very courteous, up beat, and engaged. Dining room very comfortable; wood paneled with an English-pub-meets-beach-bar theme. Food was good; above average pub fare with reasonable prices commensurate with any beach vacation locale. A decent Americanized fish and chips and a really good clam chowder. Pretty safe option out there on Captiva... looks far less risky than several of the other dining options out there.

“Nice view...average food”
Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

It's a island staple and has been for over 30 years. Went because friends had been and said it was great. The food was average, waitress was very attentive and nice but was trying to force us out quickly, and and view is very nice but not amazing.

“Food was good, atmosphere for sunset was excellent!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Very nice beer and wine selection. The food was good, the staff was helpful though not overly friendly. The music and seating for sunset was well worth the drive out to Captiva. Will be back again.
