I went for a day trip and decided to go to RC Otter’s for an early lunch. There was a bit of a wait as they were transitioning from breakfast to lunch. I didn’t mind as the atmosphere was relaxing and the staff was friendly...More

Otters is one place always on our list when we come to Sanibel. Food is good and reasonably priced and it's a fun place to eat. The wine list is short and expensive for what you get. Variety of side items is great.

Found this restaurant to be well run and quite busy, always a good sign. Live music in the evening. Food is good quality and service good.

No sunset view from Otters. Mucky Duck and Old Captiva House at Tween Waters are the two sunset dining options on Captiva.
