Description: Enjoy a spicy and unique atmosphere while savoring the fine Mexican and Southwestern cuisine at Cantina Captiva. Try our homemade guacamole - “The green stuff!” It's made fresh daily. Served with a side of pico de gallo, and warm corn tortilla chips or perhaps you prefer something a little spicier? We've got you covered with our stuffed cheese jalapeno poppers served with a side of fiesta ranch dressing. Looking for a salad to suit your fancy? Choose a taco salad or a fajita salad with your choice of chicken breast, steak or shrimp on top of crisp lettuce topped with lots of goodies. Of course, we have the traditional Mexican food favorites like fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, and burritos. Feeling more non-traditional? Choose our chef's favorites - Shrimp Diablo – Gulf Shrimp sautéed with our chef’s secret chipotle marinade, or Tequila-Lime Shrimp. Complement your meal with a choice of imported or domestic beers or perhaps an icily refreshing margarita!

This is a unique restaurant with the money look. Service was great especially since the place was filled with customers an we were a party of 9. Couldn't ask for better. The food was very tasty and the Key Lime Pie to die for. Would go back in a heart beat

This was our second time there. The service is quick. Nice back ground music!! While the place is small with not much moving around, the food was still great! We enjoyed sitting in our chairs reading all the decorated $1.00 bills just to see where they came from. Our waiter did check on us enough times that we didn't feel like he was rushing us.

The Food was very good and we ate there several times. Other reviewer's are right in that it could be kept up better and a little cleaner inside... The staff was friendly and prices were moderate for the area.
