We stopped here for a late lunch as it was highly advertised as an island place. We weren't disappointed. On a hot afternoon a good place to stop for a beer and a sandwich.

Best key lime pie if you like it a little sharp and not overly sweet. Great fried fish. And the lunchtime live music was spectacular.

I found this place on TripAdvisor and thought my husband and I would give it a try. We walked up and the place looked super cute. We were greeted by a woman that said sit wherever you want. It took awhile to be greeted. We ordered crab stuffed portobello mushroom for an appetizer it was OK. I ordered a Sangria... More

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.
