Dinner here was excellent. We got here about an hour early for our reservation and had a drink at the Crows Nest. We were given a quite table along the wall. Food and service was great and I have no complaints. I had the oyster Alexander for my appetizer and the blackened scallops for my main course. I only got... More

For starters, this is a white table cloth restaurant with a piano player. Upscale quiet dining. It is a really lovely place. We would have loved to sit outside but it was raining and damp so we stayed in. The service is excellent. Lighting, noise level and ambience are all perfect. Plenty of room between tables and on table top.... More

We did not expect to find fabulous food at a "hotel restaurant" but this place was so good that we never left the property for meals! The choices were great, and the food was just wonderful. They had duck breast that was perfectly cooked. The polenta was fabulous, as was the risotto, and the fish they served was just superb.... More

We ate here 3 different nights while on Captiva. Amazing lobster tails and crab bisque. Great wine selection. During busy times you need a reservation. And the decor feels like old Florida- we saw the amazingly kitschy Christmas lights after Thanksgiving. So FUN. Servers are very friendly and helpful. Hostess sometimes has an attitude, even if you have a reservation.

Kudos to all the gals and guys working hard to serve us snowbirds. I was always greeted with warmness, friendliness and a smile. Here's a tip for guests of Tween Waters, your continental breakfast is included in your room rate, you should, however, tip your server, it's the kind thing to do.

Great redfish special, good service, nice, quiet atmosphere unlike most Captiva/Sanibel restaurants. The servers were very attentive but not obtrusive. Food had great island flavor. Will definitely go back.

The first time my wife and I visited Captiva Island and Boca Grande and Sanibel Island, we were surprised by the lack of quality restaurants and hotels. Maybe we weren't looking very hard. But things have changed dramatically in the last few years. Or maybe we're taking a closer look. If you're looking for good place to eat, Captiva House... More

Had dinner with a party of four last evening. Food and service was very good and the cost was not as high as I had expected. The small plates were quite sufficient following and appetizer.
