The restaurant is located on Cape Coral beach. There is outside dining live music and a beautiful view of the pier and water. The food isn't the greatest but it is what we expected. It's quick food easy eating food. We had tacos and sandwiches which were good just don't expected great! Relax and enjoy the view!

We made reservations here before arriving on the island for our vacation. I am glad we chose this restaurant to celebrate a milestone birthday (50th)! Two of us had the crab encrusted grouper special with grilled asparagus. It was amazing! The other two had steaks and found them to be good. Our waitress was extremely nice, personable and gave great... More

We stopped here for lunch and we loved it. It's an open deck and we found a table at the beach level and it was lovely. The menu is not very extensive but the location is perfect and the food and service is good.

We had dinner here for NYE at the BR and it was awesome. Jenny, her daughter and the whole crew were really nice. The chicken marsala and grouper were amazing, and the beer/wine selection was on point. They also have a full bar!

Welcomed by a very nice guy who was alone serving as host, waiter, bartender, & chef with an already seated table of 8 and our table of 7 coming in. He was joined by one of the ferry captains after we got our drinks & appetizers. Wish we had seen this restaurant on a good night but can't blame food... More

Good food. The atmosphere was really nice. You better get reservations. I saw people turned away. It is a small place. The food was overpriced. It will cost $30-$40 per person.. I would recommend going one time anyway. People are very nice.

We went there for dinner while we were staying on the island. You need to make reservations because it is very small. The food is good. Our waitress was very good but like everywhere else on the island she was the only one waiting tables and bar. It was good for a night away from cooking but pricey.

The Boathouse was the nicest place to eat on the island and also had the best fine food. The prices were expensive but so is everything else on N Captiva. Reservations are a must. Great place for a couples dinner with friends.
