Excellent Seafood!

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... read more

Fantastic dinner and even better service. The staff really go out of their way to ensure you have a great experience! The wine selection was broad and the waiters are quite helpful in helping you choose.

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!!

Captain Bill's was a great place for our New Years celebration. The food was very good and the service was great. They paid just the right amount of attention, not to much and not to little. The restaurant was very nice with must be a very nice view during the day. I'd go back if in the area.

We threw a retirement party and had 100 guests. The buffet food was spectacular, the appetizers grand and the drinks kept flowing. All the staff was so helpful even helped us set up out table decorations and arrange balloons. We had lots of help bringing things in to the Bayview House as all the servers were eager to help.
