April Update: Old Captiva House Remains Open for Carry Out, and Coronavirus Policies

Posted on

This past weekend, Florida’s governor ordered all restaurants in the state be closed to foot traffic — while allowing carry out service to continue. At TripAdvisor’s number one Captiva Island restaurant — Old Captiva House — this policy and others are welcome opportunities to continue to bring you the finest dining experience in Southwest Florida.

Old Captiva House will be open for Take Home dinners only — from 3 PM to 8 PM — until further notice. Alcohol service is available only with food orders. View our Take Home menu here, as well as our Nightly and Family Specials menus here. Then call 239.472.5161 (423) to order, and pick up at a time convenient to you at Crow’s Nest.

In addition, guests should be aware of the following procedures that the restaurants of Sanibel Captiva Beach Resorts have enacted measures in compliance with OSHA 3990 Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19. These include:

  • Continue to follow stringent health and safety regulations already in place at all restaurants.
  • Continue to follow stringent health and safety regulations requiring sinks, soap and paper towels placed every 15 feet in kitchen and bar service areas.
  • Service personnel have been advised to avoid physical contact (i.e., hand shaking), practice diligent hygiene and to remain home if they are feeling any cold or flu symptoms.

Chef Greg Nelson and his team are enthused to continuing wowing guests with Captiva Island’s top dining experience. Just visit our online menus, then call us at 239.472.5161 (423). Thank you.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day on Captiva Island

Posted on

Picture this: A candlelit table, set against the backdrop of dusk as the sun has set. Music drifting between romantic tables inside a historic 100+-year old building. A table set for two. Special delectable entrees designed by the executive chef himself. A bottle of wine between the two of you. And something sweet to share at the end. Yum.

Old Captiva House loves love, and the experts will tell you, there’s no better place to celebrate it than on Captiva Island.

Start your night out by paying respect to the sunset, sitting on the brick porch entrance to Old Captiva House. Then join us inside for the real treats!

This year, choose from two executive chef-selected menu items. A Valentine’s Day favorite, the lobster and crab stuffed, cold water lobster tail is served with a beet risotto cake, white asparagus and citrus butter sauce. Another great choice, the filet of beef is panned seared and top with king crab meat, served on a port demi and bearnaise sauce with Hawaiian purple sweet potatoes and sautéed julienne vegetables with mushrooms. Not in the mood for surf or turf? The outstanding traditional menu is also still available.

Valentine’s Day fills up fast, so if you and your sweetheart want to soak in the romance this year, you’ll want to make your reservations soon. For convenience, Old Captiva accepts reservations online through OpenTable or via phone by called 239.472.5161 x 421 between the hours of 5:30 and 9:30PM.

Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year, so make a weekend of it, and join us at ‘Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa. Reservations are still available for a romantic weekend getaway, including on-site dining at Old Captiva House. Tween-waters.com
