About Barnacle's Island Resort
Barnacle’s Waterfront Dining (formerly Barnacle Phil’s Restaurant) proudly serves locally grown food to our guests. Buying local in Southwest Florida supports the region’s rich fishing, farming and ranching traditions and gives our guests flavorful food. Buying local builds our community and reduces our carbon footprint.
Famous for our black beans and rice, we have supplemented the menu with fresh fruit from Pine Island, grass fed beef and organic vegetables from Punta Gorda, locally caught seafood and fresh salads. Our ice cream and sorbet are made by Queenies in Fort Myers: she has a dedicated local following.
Barnacle’s Waterfront Dining is an iconic waterfront restaurant located in Safety Harbor on North Captiva Island. You may dine indoors or outdoors under the Chickee. We offer games for the entire family while you are waiting or kids can get fishing gear and bait dockside and drop a line.
The gift shop features souvenirs and locally made glassware and jewelry, pottery, prints, photographs and island apparel. Buy a Barnacle’s Waterfront Dining t-shirt, a cozie or a canvas bag to remember your visit. Make sure you have the sunscreen windshirt if you are heading out fishing. Ladies, find a sarong or a batik dress to wear on the beach while you are on “island time.” Guys, there is plenty of stuff for you as well. We have games and crafts for kids.
When you want to bike, kayak or go fishing, Come to us!! Have fun!
