It's not that good but if you have children, give it a try. We don't go there any more as we would rather cook at our timeshare than eat so-so food. To quote my sister after having had a so-so meal, "I could have made something that bad at home". Pretty much sums this place up.

Great blk beans and rice !! Fresh fish, great breakfast all at reasonable prices. They also have a great selection of beers. Seating is both inside and out and live music in the evening. This was a great option for the family.

During a week long stay at South Seas we ate at RC Otters twice. Both meals were very good. The atmosphere will not disappoint. We watched the sunset on the beach walked a few doors down and sat down outside for a very enjoyable dinner (with a great guitarist). Kids can play games in a safe area just near the... More

This is our friend's favorite restaurant in the Sanibel/Captiva area, mostly for his favorite guitarist. Casual atmosphere, we dined outdoors by choice which is great in the Spring. I did not care for the calamari appetizer, but LOVED my broiled shrimp dinner (see photo). Absolutely delicious!! I would go back just to order that again. Our waiter was very busy... More

We had a relatively long wait, but kids were amused with the tiki toss hook game they have set up outside. Good outdoor dining with live entertainment. Food was good and service was quick. Would recommend to other families visiting the area.

We stopped in mid-afternoon for a quick drink and some snacks. I was happy to find that they have a good craft beer selection. However, be prepared to pay for it (around $15). The food was certainly nothing special and service was just ok. While we didn't have any issues with the service, no one seemed particularly happy to be... More

Let me start by confessing that I adore this restaurant. We visit regularly and bring friends, family, and out-of-town guests as often as we can -- to the point where we don't really even read the menu, because we have our faves. (In case you're wondering, that includes the blackened mahi for Any Fish You Wish; Uncle Hank's Grilled Fish... More

Staying near the bridge to Sanibel in Ft Myers we wanted to explore a little bit. We saw good reviews and made the 30min drive to Captiva. We went on a Friday around 7:30. They had a table open on the porch which is outside and under cover. There was live music which was a nice touch on a picture... More
