good food, angry employees

A group of 3 of us showed up and were seated immediately outside by the water. Very pretty! But our waitress was just so rude, miserable and not informative at all! When asked if a substitution could be made for a side salad, she said yes but it would cost extra. Then messed up the cost of how much... read more

For starters, I ordered the clam chowder with clam fritters. The chowder was luke warm, from a can. The clam fritters were 99.9% flour no taste, cold with no clams. I also got a fish sandwich that was just warm with cold french fries and not very good. Great view. I would go again but just for a drink. How... More

Went to Captain Al's today for lunch. My wife ordered a fish sandwich and I ordered a small lobster roll. We sat at the bar for 40 minutes with no food, so we left. No apology, no nothing! Last time I'm going to Captain Al's, and I live practically next door

Visited this restaurant for a quick appetizer and drinks. Service was good and quick. The mixed drinks were watered down. I would stick with bottled beer in this establishment. I had a quahog because they were out of the seahog that I originally wanted. It was bland and mostly bread. I would go back to sit on the outside deck... More

Beautiful location and strong beverages. Try the ceasar salad with the broiled scallops, to do for! Mudslides on a hot day on the deck are a treat and they had live music on Sunday p.m. which made the ambiance all the better. We have been there many times and it can be very busy....who doesn't want to overlook the water??... More

It was a perfect day for a drive down to the Caped Cod canal, on the way back we stopped at Captain Al's for a great supper. The ambiance and view here are 5-star, the food is vood, and the service is outstanding. My wife had a lobster roll, which she described as "to die for", I had a Philly... More

A potential gold mine that could use a better eye for detail. Front of house staff needs training and a better place to roll silver other than right at the front door. 0 up sell or any sign of interest in job. Clam cakes contain 99.9% bread, clams nowhere to be found, basically fried bread with tartar.

The waitress was friendly and attentive giving you enough space to enjoy your food the view etc. We had the lobster roll which although very ample seemed dry, bland , maybe previously frozen.

Food is pretty good, location is great, update to outdoors is good, but the bartenders are the worst anywhere around. Just seem like they are on 1 speed & don't really give a sh@t! Such a bummer.

We wait all winter for Als to reopen. Nice views of the marina and Buttermilk Bay. Good food with a good selection. Try the Loaded Nacho's. There is now heat at the outside bar, so it's comfortable on chilly spring nights. Staff is personable and welcoming. One of our favorites.
