Ok

I ordered a salad that was not very good at all, I was surprised. the meal was ok, not bad, but nothing that made me want to rush back. I have eaten here plenty of times, and most of the meals have been, "ok". I had lunch with someone else and that person had a similar opinion. The atmosphere... read more

My chowder was delicious but my boyfriend was not happy with his entree. They didn't do anything to compensate either. He was very upset, he barely took two bites of the burger and left the entire meal and they didn't take it off the bill either...

I have been eating here on and off for 32 years. Sat. 3/21 was terrible. One used to be able to count on this joint. No more! Two seriously overcooked burgers went home to my Lab. Dog downed them w/out complaint. Burgers were ordered "blood rare" and affirmed by server. If the "COOK?" refused to present as ordered then say... More

Highly recommend this Camden seafood restaurant on the harbor. Great service and very reasonable prices. The lobster mac and cheese is excellent! Can't wait to visit again.

I visit the Camden area occasionally and recently visited Cappy's when I was there. They added a new dining room a couple years ago, and it's such a pleasant place to sit and look out over Camden Harbor. Service is good and the menu has lots to offer, both for seafood and land lovers. The fish chowder was particularly good,... More

RJ the waiter was extremely attentive and helpful!! Please ask for him when you visit! Made us feel very welcome and gave great suggestions for places to try and see in the area. The food is great here. Especially the clam chowder! You will not be disappointed here!

Friendly staff, great food, great service. Try the seafood pot pie! Also love the lobster Mac and cheese. Interesting building and decor in a great downtown location. This is not a get dressed up kind of place. Jeans and a golf shirt fit right in.

We stopped here for a light lunch and were not disappointed. It is a nice place to eat lunch with family's as well. The lobster rolls were delicious as was the clam chowder. Not a fancy place but a nice place to grab a bite and enjoy Camden. Overlooks the bay as well.

I am from that "other coast" (CA) but travel to ME yearly for the gorgeous autumn color and NEVER miss a visit to my favorite ME seaside town Camden. Wonderfully picturesque and home to Cappy's, which is the local Cheers but with really good food. Eventually everyone comes here and on any given night you'll meet boat captains from Bermuda...

Tell the hostess that she didn't want us, a party of two at her booth. Kind of put a pall over what could have been a very simpatico lunch. Can't really blame her, the restaurant is crowded and busy, even on a winter Saturday. The meal was pretty good: classic thick (overly so, in my view given what has to... More
