Good for chowder

Stood in line for chowder. Worth the wait. It was full of clams. Inside and outside seating seems to be available and very casual.

This restaurant anchors a cute boardwalk/shopping area tucked away amongst the recycling plants in Bridgeport. But don't worry about the GPS ride in.....it's a lovely spot with a fun fried fish spot. As my friend said who met us there.....you just "grab a picnic table and plop down". It's all take-out food and Wed. is a $3.99 fried fish special... More

the is a funky place on the water and looked like fun. the food selection is basically fried everything. ordered the fried oyster platter and it was not edible; either the oysters were bad or the batter or the oil or they just make horrible food. come for a drink if you want but stay away from ordering any food....

Would be okay for a family with young kids but not for couples. Not really a restaurant by my definition. Fast food at best. My husband and I pulled in because we saw the "river view market" and stayed the night in our boat. The downstairs is what I would call expensive carnival food. Upstairs is a bar but after... More

Stop here for dinner on the way home delicious crab roll and french fries prices were very reasonable. Atmosphere is fun and casual order your food and then find your seat on the dock. Definitely worth a stop. Wife had shrimp in a basket which was popcorn shrimp and she said it was delicious

Just very poor quality food. I would suggest eating home before visiting Captains Cove. Even McDonalds filet o fish is better.

We drove pretty far to go to Blood Root, only to find that it's closed for lunch on Wednesdays. Spotting this restaurant across the water, we ventured there and had a fine lunch. My partner had the fried fish with fries and cole slaw, which she enjoyed, and I had the tuna salad, which I thought needed more mayo (I... More

Basic deep fried fish. Counter service, eat on deck. Deck contains numerous curiosities that the kids loved, including small boats, amusement park mirrors, & fishing memorabilia. Wednesday fish specials. Best viewing from second floor bar deck.

An average seafood outdoor/ indoor restaurant . More of a fast food seafood type of eatery. Nothing special regarding the taste of the food. Mostly fried with a little too much batter. The price exceeded the quantity or quality. Did not like having to stand in line to order and then waiting in line or standing around for the food.... More
