It was a beautiful day and Captiva Island was crawling with people. We walked up, got a table outside and ordered a beer. Perfect! Man playing guitar was very good and enjoyed by all. We split the fish tacos - as it looked plentiful enough for two, and it was! Came with beans/rice/cheese that was excellent too. Would definitely eat there and even eat the same thing. Help was friendly and completent.

We happened upon this great little eatery after taking a Captiva Cruise that left from McCarthy's Marina, right across the street. We opted for out door seating and enjoyed listening to the live music. The singer was excellent. I ordered the Shrimp Pot and it was wonderful. It was full of potatoes, cauliflower, yellow and zucchini squash, broccoli and onions, plus a few pieces of corn on the cob and at least 13 shrimp in a tasty broth. The shrimp were peel and eat so the meal was a bit interactive. It came with sides of melted butter, lemon wedges, cocktail sauce and crackers. The others at our table ordered the Crispy Grouper Sandwich and everyone enjoyed it. The wait staff was helpful and friendly. The restrooms were clean. The next time were on Captiva we'll come back. I would like to try the breakfast.

This is our favorite spot on the Island. The staff is great, always welcoming & courteous. Angie is the best! RC Otter has live music everyday which really is a nice touch. At breakfast, hit up the blueberry pancakes. The grouper & stone crab are a must. All the seafood is freshly fished from local waters. The management does a great job ensuring consistent service & quality. We've tried other places, but always recommend RC Otters.

We went for breakfast-maybe the lunch/dinner is better- and it was nothing special. Bland and tasteless potatoes and just okay pancakes. The service was a little slow, but the atmosphere was cool and beachy. I wouldn't go back.

It is a cute place on Captiva with a very island feel to it. The parking is difficult and hard to come by. The crab claw appetizers were excellent and very fresh. The baskets we had were fish and shrimp and were very good and fresh. The homemade fries were the best and a must get. Some of us had sweet potato fries and they tend toward the soggy. Excellent food, atmosphere and fun for a good price.
