“Awesome experience, will visit again!!!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

Had an awesome experience at Doc Ford's Captiva and look forward to the next time. I had their delicious Yucatan Shrimp to start which was excellent and a must try plus the feature entree from the chef Crab Crusted Triple tail. It was so good with a lot of flavor. Very kid friendly and our server Chris along with the great staff really made us feel welcome. Can't wait for next time. Thank you!!!

“Fabulous "Triple Tail" (local fish) Special”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Newest restaurant on the Island, Kudos to the Chef for fresh, healthy entrees!!! Good Decor, Great server!!! At the end of Captiva Drive within the South Seas Resort, but convenient to the north end of Captiva.. just steps from the Beach Daisy beach house (also highly recommended).

“GREAT FOOD!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

Out of all the restaurants we visited in 10 days in Captiva, this was by far the overall best! Food, drinks, ambience, service: all great. The paella was outstanding. Lots of seafood and plenty for 2 to share. The rum sampler is a must!! We will definitely be dinning there again upon our return to Captiva. Bob appetite.

“Delicious Food, Family Friendly”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

The food was absolutely delicious and the price fair. We had good service and enjoyed everything we ordered. The penne shrimp dish was delicious. The kids menu has plenty of options and even includes a free dessert. We would definitely come back here. Loved it!

“Tasty Carribean food!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

A nice change of pace from seafood for a night. New restaurant at this location (there are 3), friendly staff. We had a half chicken, roasted with vege's, black beans and rice, a spicy shrimp dish...all were delicious, seasoned very well. Would definitely go back.
