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.

The Boathouse Restaurant has great service and the food is yummy! The night we went (4 of us), we had a variety of entrees and all were well liked. I especially liked the Grouper (fried) but it is offered cooked over ways as well. The sides were plentiful and the atmosphere pleasant. They make a mean martini too! Highly recommend... More

We had dinner here on our last night on the island. The chef was great. When we made the reservation the chef asked us what we would prefer to have. We said shrimp and he had several dishes for us to chose from. It was a great setting also.

Nine of us had a wonderful Valentines dinner from caesar salad and coconut shrimp to grilled grouper. Krista did a splendid job on my coconut shrimp that were perfectly done and tender to the grilled grouper several of the nine had that was done just right with fresh steamed broccoli, beans and rice. The waitress did a great job keeping... More

Krista is the reason we even considered eating here. The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. We will definitely make a point to eat here again next year. With Krista in charge of things here, I look forward to what she brings to this restaurant, and other parts of the island.

Orders were confused, service was painfully slow, and food was delivered cold. This is the off season and the staff appears to be inadequately trained even though they are very nice and hard working. They just don't know how to prepare meals for a large group and get it served while it is still hot. Maybe 'in season' things are... More
