Finding a nice restaurant with a reasonably priced menu for New Year's Eve is hard to find in this part of Florida. Making a reservation was easy via phone. The Captiva House is located just across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset with our own drinks and snacks. An at 6pm, we walked into... More

Clearly the food served here raises above the average level of restaurants in Captiva. Xmas decoration was all around over the resort which gave an overall great experience to the stay. Food was very very good. We only ordered a selection of sushi and sashimi but since we were six we could try a lot. Only the shrimp sashimi was... More

The atmosphere was nice, but not outstanding. The server was terrific- personable, attentive and friendly. I got sushi which was really yummy, but someone else in our party got sushi that had tuna that was mushy. The crab bisque was phenomenal according to my kids. They have a little store there that has great things! The desserts are in little... More

Spent last night on this glorious island eating dinner here. Although the food was good, and m son-in-law's clam linguine was superb, several things occurred to dampen the evening. Our waiter Tyler was very much absent from our table. By that I mean he made several blunders: he passed by our table quite often without checking on how we were... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights on Captiva Island and this was our favorite restaurant for dinner. Service was great and fit with the white tablecloth environment. We shared a duck spring roll appetizer and salad and then had the sea bass and seafood lasagna which was followed by Key lime pie. Everything was wonderful. We would highly recommend... More

We had driven past this place just to see the Christmas lights the night before, not realizing that there were restaurants as well. Our mistake! So, the next night we pulled in and finally found parking. Strolled in without a reservation and were seated immediately - outdoors - which was perfect. It was a gorgeous night and we wanted to...
