The meal that we enjoyed at The Boathouse was super. Although it was about 40% more expensive than On the Water, I found it to be about twice as good. If I were to return to the island, this is the only restaurant I would...More

We have always had great meals at restaurants that are owned by the Ford's Garage people. We were looking forward to a nice lunch outside at the Boathouse. The staff is very friendly, but our food was a bit disappointing. We had nachos, which were...More

The food here is excellent. Their grouper is to die for, but quite pricey. There is little to no ambience and the wait staff was so-so. They do have a full service bar and some out door seating. Small restaurant that does require reservations

I knew this would be overpriced, but this is just a rip-off. My husband and I both ordered the fresh fish, which is much tastier and more reasonably priced at Mangos next door. Also, for these prices, Boathouse, fork out for the Pandora subscription for...More

We fortunately made reservations well in advance for a late Friday dinner the day we arrived at North Captiva. The tuna tar tar appetizer and fried calamari were pretty good. Fish of the day was fresh swordfish, grilled perfectly, and the portion sizes were generous....More

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...More

Our menu is largely gluten free. Items that are not can be made gluten free upon request (except pasta). There is no specific dress code- "island casual" is fine.
