This was our first place to eat in Sebastian and we immediately fell in love with the environment. We've been back many times and are so very sadden that the owner has chosen to "temporarily" close this location rather than hand the reins over to another owner. This closing is a significant loss to Sebastian - in our opinion.

So sad :(. We loved this place and we're sorry to see it close for renovations and never reopen. Hopefully, someone will take it over as it is a great spot on the river

Have been to Capt. Butcher's several times. Food was usually very good, and service was hit or miss. However we noticed that the staff and cook were not flexible, nor was the owner. Don't even ask for a fried egg on your burger, no way. Come on! Asked about whether there would ever be a happy hour and was told... More

Capt'n butchers is closed and does not look like they will open soon. Was told that they closed for renovation. Ah in November hmm I don't think so. This was a pretty good waterfront restaurant however pricey.

This was a nice restaurant with a great view of the Indian River Lagoon. Never ate dinner there, but breakfast and lunch were good - a little pricey - but as for most restaurants on the river - you are paying for the atmosphere.

I love Capt Butchers back patio that overlooks the Indian river on their own dock. Inside dining is a different atmosphere with white linen tablecloths & napkins. Many great fresh fish options are offered daily on the menu. A nicer restaurant for a special dinner or for out of town guests.

We love sitting on the outside patio enjoying a draft beer while snacking on the fish dip. The view of the Lagoon is incredible. A nice relaxing place to enjoy the ambience of nature.
