I go to this place often in large part because the food quality is very good and the service is usually excellent. It has an old school feeling but that is a good thing. Get there early; it fills up fast.

Went to pre-celebrate my birthday. Captain's Tavern is an excellent place to enjoy great, fresh and delicious sea food. On Tuesdays they have 2/1 lobsters and every day they have something's special. A bit pricy but worth every dollar. Enjoy.
