“Dinner in Captiva”
Reviewed 22 November 2013 via mobile

Had dinner with good friends in Captiva in November. Heard that Chris Berman from ESPN ate there the night before and gave it a try. Nick and Robin (Manager and Waitress) provided great service and we had excellent food. Best cooked scallops I've ever had - and highly recommend the swordfish. Definitely would go back again.

Small restaurant in downtown Captiva. Eaten there twice over the last two years on vacation. The food is fresh, simple and delicious. Definitely not to be missed.

“Best Restaurant on Captiva”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

We've been coming to Captiva for years and I don't know how we missed this place for so long. First discovered Sunshine Seafood last year and thought it was awesome - came back this year and hit it up several times during the week we were in Captiva because it is simply the best restaurant on the island. Food is phenomenal, service is outstanding and prices are reasonable. We have never had a bad thing on the menu. Only room for improvement (that I see) is that wines are served a little bit warm but other than that, it can't be beat. I cannot wait to return next year!!
