Four of us enjoyed dinner here, and we were lucky to get a table upstairs without a reservation because the downstairs was full. Drinks were delicious. And service was good.

We boated to Boca Grande from North Captiva. Short wait for lunch at the Pink Elephant. Our service was exceptional. Each dish our table ordered was delicious. Highly recommend the brisket, burger and salads. Food is fresh and tasty. Atmosphere is fun. Think Pink!

Really enjoyed the Tuna Melt and the Deviled Crab Eggs. Indoor the table was a little small for 6, We definitely will return. Boat access is real easy.

I would check with the restaurant about it's hours in the summer. Boca Grande has 2 seasons: Summer and "Social". :) A lot of stores have limited operating hours in the summer.
