We go to Captain Bill's for important occasions: anniversaries, birthdays, important life milestones. Every single thing I ate there was always great. I've never heard a negative from someone that went here - EVER. Really nice view of the water and boats docked. While some pricey restaurants also skimp on the quantity, not so here. You will be full. Great... More

The food was delicious and priced fairly. I will definitely be returning for another meal at Captain Bill's especially because of the beautiful layout of the dining room. I highly... More

My friend and I were so excited to come here for a Sunday lunch. Unfortunately what we got instead was the rudest hostess I have EVER encountered. We walked up to the stand and before we could even try to speak to this rude woman in glasses, we were greeted with, "We just finished brunch. We don't even have a... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant. A friend wanted a nice place to treat me to a belated birthday lunch. It was perfect. The service was not rushed, allowing us time to catch up on our lives. It provided a lovely water view, and the food was good. I had the broiled seafood platter. While the shrimp were... More

We attended a catered event at Captain Bills. It was my first time eating there and I was impressed. Both the food and service were very good. After the meal is was nice to walk out onto the deck and look at the vessels in their slips.

Went for a late lunch on a gorgeous fall day, the staff was so courteous to clear a table right next to the waterfront, the flounder lunch special was fresh not fishy at all, we will be back in the summer for sure! Just perfect!

The spread of brunch was quite delicious. Fresh made to order omelettes, prime beef (fabulous!), roast pork, chickens,pastas , shrimp, crab legs, etc, not to mention the dessert which really could be better, I found the desserts just ok. The roasted potatoes were also worth mentioning. We had a great view of the boats in the canals. Good fun with... More
