Old Captiva House
Once a one-room schoolhouse of Captiva’s pioneer settlers, Old Captiva House is today a TripAdvisor top-rated restaurant with a charming, casual, Gulf-front setting that features an award-winning menu beloved by guests and locals of Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Whether it’s a bright morning breakfast served outdoors among the flowers or indoors — or an extensive, creative dinner menu of mouth-watering island favorites that focus on fresh Gulf of Mexico seafood, plus the island’s exclusive sushi menu, all served with an extensive collection of fine wines, specialty drinks and coffees — you’re sure to be delighted by the amazing talents of our long-time islands favorite Executive Chef.
Throughout the past century of Captiva Island’s heritage, vessels of all sizes have sailed and moored here — for leisure, for sport, for exploration, and once upon a time, for the clandestine transport of whiskey and illicit goods.
Amid the captivating tapestry of our island’s nautical history, we christen The Shipyard restaurant — a tribute to the bygone days of Florida’s fishing and boating legacy, beckoning to the cherished past and the promising future, offering delightful experiences and exquisite feasts to all who venture in. Atop it all, the Crow’s Nest Steakhouse (coming soon) stands tall, providing an unrivaled vantage point to witness the legendary sunsets over the renowned Gulf of Mexico.
