A Wonderful Waterside Experience

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... read 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.

We stopped here to have a cold drink and appetizers on a beautiful Sunday afternoon! It was crowded on the deck, which overlooks Buttermilk Bay! We enjoyed the cold draft beer and quahogs! They were very good! A fun place to stop and enjoy the view!

Great place to sit on the deck and have some cocktails. Food is good and not pricey. Definitely get the lobster bisque. Deck gets kind of busy, especially on beautiful days. Parking can be a bit rough but there is an additional lot next door.

Great views with outdoor seating. Food is tasty, hot and generous portions. We usually are their when they open up in April so there is never a parking problem or getting a table right away. Highly recommended.

Hubby and I had a great seafood meal. Food was wonderful especially the stuffed mushrooms. The drinks were extremely generous. The sevice was friendly and attentive. The only thing that would have made it better would have been if the weather had been good enough to take advantage of the waterfront location. As it was, it was a cool spring... More

Really like this place alot although service tends to be slow, we keep coming back. It has a great atmosphere, excellent rueben sandwiches I might add. We live over an hour away and when I crave a rueben this is where we go. Great summer time spot too
