Went in with my boyfriend and my two cousins. We were sat next to the window with a lovely view of the marina. Food was cooked beautifully and tasted even better. Prices are not bad and the portions are big! Which is not common at a high end establishment. Will return again next month when I visit the island.

It had been many years since I dined here and wanted to try it again. I was very happy we did! My boyfriend had Linguini with Shrimp & Lobster which he loved. It was filled with generous amounts of both shellfish. I had the Broiled Seafood Platter which included scallops, shrimp, flounder, and a baked clam. The flounder was especially... More

Plenty of fresh food. Excellent bloody Mary's Mimosas or Champagne served in nice wine glasses. Atmosphere is beautiful waterfront looking over the bay. Service was very good although a little slow at first getting a cocktail, but after awhile they were flowing and the refill service on coffee was very good. Plenty of variety and I'd say the price just... More

Captain Bills has great atmosphere, great food, and a great group of people who make sure their customers feel welcome. I would recommend Captain Bills to anyone who wants a fun night out either at the bar for a bite or excellent meal in the dining room!!
