I was wanting to have seafood for dinner but did not want to do the typical big chain seafood joints. I had driven by the place many times and decided to give it a try. My wife & I were pleasantly surprised. The place is a small family type restaurant. At first, you are not sure what to expect as... More

A relaxed casual place with excellent food at fair prices. It's interesting with themed cocktails and seasonal decorations everywhere. I wasn't sure what to expect. The blackened catfish with chorizo succotash was excellent. BBQ salmon was ok. I'll definitely come back.

We dined at Captain's Quarters twice this past weekend. We went in to scope out the place on Thursday, because for Friday we'd planned a group of ~40 for dinner (see below reviews from participants). We had a light meal (calamari and cheeseburgers) and both were delicious! The owner, Flavio, came out to greet us ... what a delightful man!... More

We were there with a party of about 38 on a Friday evening. Everyone ordered from the menu with seperate checks. The orders came out on time and the food was great. The wait staff was so efficient and friendly. Even while waiting on our large group, they still managed to wait on the other diners, some of whom had... More

about 40 of us dined at this restaurant last Friday night...a pre-arranged dinner. The owner's father met us at the door and shook everyone's hand- it was a VietVets' reunion...The service was great, the food excellent. The owner walked around and spoke with all of us during the meal, as did his dad, who then broke out his homemade wine... More

Captain's Quarters has been a local favorite for many years in the area. New ownership has given the place a fresh, new look, but has maintained the approach to providing outstanding meals at affordable prices. The crowd tends to be more mature and very loyal. The old school feeling of how restaurants used to be is still alive and doing... More

We hadn't been there in a year, and decided to try it under its new ownership. The restaurant decor has been upgraded, walls lightend up. but the ceiling painted black for some reason. Overhead lights are orange with filaments glaring through clear glass, which my wife found bothersome. the new booths are very comfortable, and the faux marble tabletops are... More

Great and simple ingredients and excellent cooking. Large quantities. Half a fried chicken was excellent. Crispy and seasoned on the outside and juicy on the inside. Sautéed perch was phenomenal. Large quantity of fresh filets lightly pan seared with white wine and lightly seasoned. Skirt steak same. Excellent. Fried oysters app was outstanding as was the chicken livers.

We've enjoyed the Captain's Quarters for many years because the food is good a reasonably priced, but moreso because of its selection of entrees. It's got all the basics, but also offers items you don't normally find on menus, like chicken livers and frog legs. And the best saganaki around. It's a favorite spot for us.

It pains me to write this, but after more than three decades, Captain's Quarters has lost its way. I can no longer recommend it.
