My wife and I had a tremendously great lunch here. My wife had the homemade macaroni and cheese with lobster (AMAZING) and the server said it was her favourite. I had the lobster tacos. I was going to get the fish tacos for $ 13.99 but the server convinced me to go $ 3 more for the lobster. They were... More

The rest of the town closes down early. Cappy's open until 11PM (Oct 2014). Great fish 'n chips, clam chowder.

Sat at the bar and met a lot of folks from away, far away! Very friendly staff and clientele. Excellent lobster roll with their unique slaw & pickle.

We found Cappy's soon after arriving in Camden and knew we would enjoy it. I had a cup of the clam chowder with a mini lobster roll and the kitchen made a hot buttered lobster roll for my mayo hating husband. We both enjoyed our lunch and the service was very good as well.

As always when we're in Maine and near Camden we try to stop in to Cappy's. Some of the best food on Route 1. We were only in for a bite this time so we shared an order of Chicken Lips. Outstanding. The dipping sauce is to die for. Talked to the bartender in my attempt to deconstruct it. He... More

Very good food, good service, fresh haddock, sweet Maine shrimp, fresh blueberry pie. Ate here twice in one week. They also have a bakery that makes the pies and other things. Cappy's has expanded their space so they have the downstairs pub style plus an upstairs overflow with bar and the new addition to the side. When we were there... More

If you're looking for great Maine style chowder this is the place. In addition to very good food the staff is friendly and the harbor view very New England. It also has a fun locals style pub and lots on nautical antiques. Enjoy.

Food was wonderful and the service was outstanding! We sat at the bar because the place was full...but the bartender hooked up right up and took care of us!

2nd visit with friends. Better this time around. Great menu choices and daily specials. In heart of downtown Camden. A must stop and a good location for walking the waterfront

Ate here twice on a recent vacation, the staff remembered us the second day we came in. They have everything on the menu, and if they can make anything else for you, they will (they did for me). Also like the take out bakery in the back.
