Harbor View

Went for lunch at this cute place on the coast of Maine. Upstairs with a great view of the harbor. Very friendly and efficient service. Has steamed clams, very good. Others in the party had the haddock sandwich and a burger. All cooked properly and had very good taste.

My husband had the lobster tacos and couldn't stop raving about them for days. My diet is gluten free and the pesto pasta option (made with GF noodles) was delicious!!!!! We had children with us and the atmosphere was very laid back and welcoming. Awesome find with great views!!!

Must try the chowder and blueberry pie! We left feeling full and satisfied. My husband had the fried scallops and they were delish!

We ate at Cappy's twice during our stay in Camden. The first meal was lunch. We both ordered the lobster and avocado salad and shared a cup of the chowder. The chowder was good! The lobster and avocado salad was barely OK. The lettuce was a bit wilted and the avocado not ripe. The amount of lobster was adequate, but... More

We stopped for dinner after a cruise on a schooner. The fish stew was perfect with lots of fish and just spicy enough. One of the best I've eaten.

Traveled in a Snowstorm 50 minutes away on Valentines so we could enjoy a good meal together. Always stop here when we are in the area on our motorcycle in the summer alos. A Must stop!

The onion rings were perfect. The crab cake appetizer was very good. Portions were good. We did think the price was a bit high, particularly in comparison to another restaurant we had visited the same weekend.

We went with another couple, enjoyed the food and the view overlooking the harbor. We had seafood stew and one had seafood in a white sauce and all with side salads. Everything was very good with excellent service.

Cappy's Chowder House is well-known to the locals - always a good sign when you're visiting Camden and ask for a recommendation for some good seafood. Cappy's menu is so extensive, it would be hard not to find something you like. I ordered the fish and chips, which was not the batter-fried fish I usually order, but it was lightly... More
