I used to rave about this place....not so much anymore

Back in 2011, 2012 , this place was the place to go (some would agree it still is, but not myself). I used to be quite a regular at this establishment. The good: fun staff, good drinks pleasant view with outdoor deck looking over Buttermilk Bay. The bad: food has taken a nose dive in the last... read more

Discovered this on the last day it was opened for the season and regretted not finding it earlier. The location is excllent, right on Buttermilk Bay, sharing it's waterside with a nice little marina. The casual tiki-style atmosphere was very cool with options to sit indoors or outside overlooking the water. They have a bar insoors with table seating and... More

We enjoyed it so much that when our out of state visitors arrived we took them there for dinner twice, because we knew we couldn't match it at our place except for the view. The service was friendly and helpful and the food and drinks were professionally prepared and presented, all in a traditional waterfront surrounding and ambiance. We had... More

This is a great little spot on a small marina with good food and drinks! The value is also great! Cocktails for $5 lunch items under $10!

We were directed to Captain Al's as opposed to our regular haunts in the area. We gave it a try and we're not pleased with the results. The food was mediocre and the restaurant was not clean. Service was good and attentive. Prices were comparable with other local establishments so why pay the same price for mediocre food? The outdoor... More

Went out with a friend for some appetizers and drinks. Upon entering there was a sign that said "please wait to be seated" Well we waited...and waited, and waiting. Although there was servers all over the place and many came up to the hostess station, not one acknowledged us. We finally gave up and just sat ourselves at a high... More

Pulled up in the boat which is cool. Service was good, food came quickly. Clams were good, not the best ever but good. Enjoyed a table at the edge of the water, great views. Very glad we went.

I echo the sentiments of my predecessors. This a great place for dinner or lunch. Come prepared to share. The portions are liberal. A bloody, then beer and nachos are a perfect way to watch whatever game is on. It is a Sunday mainstay for us.

Indoor and outdoor dining with the sunset overlooking the bay. The fried haddock and cole slaw were awesome. The staff is very attentive to your needs. Reasonable prices and delicious food. Highly recommended but only opened April through October.

Great place with a wonderful view. Indoor and outdoor dining and bars. We sat at the outdoor bar on a quiet evening on one of the last weekends they are open for the season. The sunset over the bay is a great backdrop for cocktails and a delicious seafood dinner.
