It's obvious when you first enter the restaurant that the staff cares about their clientele. Friendly greeting, beautiful flower displays, clean white tablecloths, and attentive servers. We had a fun experience as 3 different servers came to our table within the first 2 minutes, and said they would be our server. The last to come said " I will REALLY... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with family members at the Captain Linnell House. The service, atmosphere, and food were all exceptional. I very much enjoyed the baby lettuce and bacon salad to start. The bouillabaisse entree was one of the best I have ever tasted. They have a fairly extensive wine list of moderately priced wines. The staff couldn't have... More

Have enjoyed a variety of entrees including seafood and beef and all have been perfectly prepared. Salads and desserts and equally enjoyable. We hope to continue to celebrate here for many years to... More

Last night I attended a holiday dinner event for 75 we all agreed it was a 10 out of 10 experience in every possible category. The passed appetizers were house made and delicious. The four choices of entrees were cooked to perfection, and the Viennese dessert bar was exceptional. The wait staff was efficient and courteous. I hope our group... More

I first visited this restaurant over fifteen years ago, and little has changed since then: peaceful, lovely atmosphere; efficient, unobtrusive service, and delicious food. We ordered off the prix fix menu available during the winter months, which made it a good value. I started with the tomato basil soup, which was hearty and very tasty, and my husband ordered their...

My husband and I just had the most wonderful dinner at the Captain Linnell House. I was thinking that the Thanksgiving crowd might be a bit overwhelming with noise and activity, but it was serene and just simply delicious. The meal was perfect - we had the turkey dinners - and my husband was relieved that they served dark meat... More
