It is a hike though from East Fort Myers. Everyone enjoyed their meal more no one raved about it. My medium well filet was medium rare and truly had no taste to it (no I don’t have Covid). Won’t be going back!

The shrimp bisque was excellent. We got the stuffed shrimp which was good but the sides were mediocre. The waitress was peculiar.

The calamari was not good- rubbery and soggy rings, but the tentacles were well cooked. The sauce was odd tasting, agreed by all. The crab cakes- well cooked but very reminiscent of cat food, again agreed by all. The bacon wrapped shrimp were very well done and cooked perfectly. Delicious. Garden Salads were good, and waiter recommended herb dressing was great. One had Chicken Porcini- was ok, flat and a little rubbery, au gratin was good as a side. I had Grouper Cafe de Paris’. I hated it, but ate it. Just a personal taste thing, it was cooked well and a good portion. One said she would try this restaurant again. Myself and one other said its not worth the drive from the mainland, and won’t be back. We drive to Captiva often, but will choose other options. The staff were knowledgeable and polite. Our reservation went flawlessly, and we were immediately seated, though there were several parties standing waiting. Good views of the water from anywhere in the restaurant. One quite odd thing- the urinals in the mens bathroom face the bar through what I assumed was a one way mirror. I thought it was kind of funny until we walked out and I told the girls about it. When we looked at the glass, we could see a couple of guys using the bathroom, clearly enough to identify them. That was a little off putting, thankfully we were on the way out.

My seafood salad was smaller with average taste, not as fresh. Husband ordered seafood boil speciality which he had to send back because shell fish was undercooked and saffron broth was overly salty. He then got Green Flash trio which was good but expensive for portions he received. Great place for the atmosphere and view; average food.

Service was very good. We both ordered the eggs Benedict. The eggs were good, but there was very little hollandaise sauce. The hash browns were a little dry. The fruit that came with this entree was very good.

There was a very large group there who made the place very loud and noisy. The bar area was very loud as well. Our waitress never brought plates for our oysters and we had to use bread and butter plate’s. When those were taken away she never brought fresh ones so had to place knives on the tablecloth. The bread basket was dry. Our white wine was warm. Was disappointed in that. The oyster Rockefeller appetizer was not very hot. Our food was ok but not as good as usual. We are not sure we will come back soon.

The service was fine—not particularly attentive, but fine. The big disappointment was the food. I ordered the grouper, which said on the menu it was the house specialty. It came out a small piece of dry fish, overly salted without much other flavor. And pricey. To be fair, my husband’s shrimp scampi was much better. But next time we’ll just go for drinks and the view.

Kept or ding items that were sold out but were not told ahead of time. Served us hot rose. Attempted to cool but did not get there. Had to use ice cubes. No discount or real acknowledgment that this was their error/not acceptable. Spilled wine when serving too.
