Like most of the restaurants in town it is quaint, but not great food. Service is friendly & quick. I'd go back. It was cold, so we didn't try the ice cream. The fresh waffle cones smelled great!

Great burgers, homemade soup, SHERMAN'S ice cream. No frills. In the heart of shopping district. A sure thing for a good meal. Friendly diner atmosphere.

Great little cafe downtown, hot food, reasonable price and great service. There is a regulars table up front, they even have a rack where they store their cups for the next visit - which I imagine is daily.

We headed into Captain Nemos for a late lunch. The place was not busy; only a third of the tables were occupied. We had a group of 7 and wanted to sit at the only table large enough to accomodate us. The table was empty,...More

We just stopped in here to get a quick bite to eat. Ordered a few appetizers and salad bar. The salad bar was very average- which was ok- we saw it and were ok w/that but the salad dressings were awful. We didn't expect home...More
