RC Otters Reopens On Captiva Island Following Hurricane Ian
Almost ten months to the day that the storm devastated the Southwest Florida barrier island, RC Otters reopens on Captiva Island following Hurricane Ian. A ribbon cutting and celebration was held at the popular island restaurant last night. RC Otters is on Andy Rosse Lane in the heart of the charming Old Captiva Village.
It’s across from sister restaurant, Keylime Bistro which has not reopened. However, Keylime its next on the agenda for Sandy Stillwell. Stillwell owns both restaurants as well as the Captiva Island Inn, along with other nearby businesses. “RC Otters had lots of damage,” she said last night. “We had to totally redo the flooring, the walls and the roof but it is looking prettier than ever.”
RC Otters still has the same bright color scheme, neon signs and surfboards.
The new furniture is a little more contemporary. The photos above was pre-hurricane Ian. Find a few new ones below. The casual restaurant is known for it’s family friendly food and atmosphere. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The indoor-outdoor café is also known for it’s live music, daily during lunch and dinner. The stage is outdoors where there is also dining under a shady deck.
The menu is the same as pre-Ian, but Stillwell says a few new things have been added. It’s pretty extensive and includes everything from huge salads to succulent ribs. The breakfast burrito is legendary. RC Otters also serves a mean seafood omelet.
Now that another Captiva dining option is available, Stillwell is turning her attention on the famous Keylime Bistro. “My goal is to open by September for the annual Singer Songwriter Festival,” she says.
In the meantime, congratulations on this victory. RC Otters reopens on Captiva Island following Hurricane Ian.
