This is without doubt, the best public restaurant on Captiva. I have eaten here 8-10 times in the past 2 years and have always had a very good experience. The facility is charming (white tablecloths, twinkle lights, piano music certain nights) but definitely not stuffy....More

Restaurant was empty . We ordered the much touted shrimp and grits. THE CHORIZO totally overwhelmed the taste of the whole dish. The white grits had no flavor The price? $23.95 !!!!!

Love to go here f o r a special evening. Great new menus. Sushi is wonderful. They now have small plate choices if you want great food but do not need regular portions which are also available.

We were shocked with how delicious our meal was. On Captiva Island, you are more or less a "captive guest" as there are limited dining options unless you want to drive to Sanibel. The entrees were priced between $24 and $32 and we were prepared...More
