Nice waterfront setting

Came here with my brother for a quick bite to eat at lunch time on a Saturday. Walked in and was quickly greeted by an employee and was advised to sit wherever. It was a pretty hot day so we got a table right next to the water with an umbrella that worked well at blocking the sun. The... read more

The first thing we noticed when we got there is how attentive the staff were. We got seated upstairs where the view of the water was fantastic. They also has a live band in the afternoon playing very upbeat soothing music. We felt like we were in the keys. We had one ribeye and one grouper which were cooked to... More

weve been going here for years. great atmosphere outside dining great water views , has always been a crowd pleaser. last time we went the seafood was only so so, and the prices seemed to skyrocket i'm sure its more for tourist now. which is fine. just not so good for locals anymore. if it hadn't been that my spouse...

This was our third visit to Captain Jacks which is very close to our home after a hard day at work. This time we went on a weekday at 7pm. Seems like it is a great drinking place day or night but food was just ok again. This time we tried just a sandwich platter and fries and it was... More

Atmosphere appeared nice as we walked up but as we approached the hostess stand(that we had to walk through the restaurant to get to passing a few employees) nobody was there to greet us or give us direction on what to do or where to sit. Food was good but nothing over the top. Service was very slow. Appeared to... More

I really enjoyed the restuarant. Food is reasonably priced, drinks are reasonably priced. Music was great. Service was pretty good but the food is not great, it's not bad, it's just not something very special. Appetizers were tasty but small (callamari, carribean shrimp). I would return, but more for the ambience and music than anything.

I have given this place several tries. It seems to me that it is simply poorly run and a highly dysfunctional layout. The place is like a bowling alley as it is long and narrow with a walk to the restroom having me pack a lunch. The food was passable but the service was not to be believed. It took... More

Love going here with my wife for a beverage at the end of the day to watch the sunset! Food is mediocre as is the service for food. Bartenders are awesome and friendly. Plenty of seating in or outdoors. Upstairs has a nice sports bar theme. Drawback: they always close early, so if you are seeking a late night beverage,... More

Although I live really close to this place, I went out with family for dinner there for the first time recently. This place has two levels, boats for rent, docks for people to pull in their boats while they eat. There is a bar and a lot of excellent food. The prices are very reasonable and nice for families without... More
