Restaurant owned by Royal Resorts Group , which specializes is the fresh fish and seafood in addition to a wide variety of choices for all tastes.

It was just ok, not as expected based on reviews, was really hoping it would be better. The caeser salad dressing tasted like it was bottled and the sea bass was merely average.

Let me start of by saying that the food here is amazing. It was hands down a 5 star experience. Some of the best seafood we have ever had. The view was so romantic and sitting on the patio is an experience in it self. Make sure to get a table outside. So why only 4 stars you ask? The... More

Service is excellent, setting is amazing, food is very good! We've been going there since 1987, and it's always excellent - could use some menu updates, though.

The 4 of us had fresh seafood & drinks for $100.00. I had the grouper, my husband had the stuffed shrimp, our teenagers had shrimp alfredo & coconut shrimp. All was delicious. We sat outside with a great water view. The service was excellent. If we are lucky enough to visit the area again we will go back.

We visited the Captain's Cove in March and had previously been there a couple times in past years. Our party of four enjoyed everything about our visit. (except for a cloudy sunset) Probably the best ever coconut shrimp we've ever had. Great service!

We always have a great experience at this restaurant. The staff are first class and the food is always good. Sometimes we have steak and sometimes we have seafood-it doesn't matter- everything is good here.
