Great Sunday Brunch

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... read 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.

We were there last Sunday and waited 1 and 1/2 hours to have lunch served. Once it came, it was cold and needed to be sent back. We also noticed other tables that had the same problem with cold food and sent it back. The excuse was that there was a "function" going on and they were busy. Obviously understaffed... More

We ate here during Long Island Restaurant week where the priced fixed meal was only $27.95. we chose this restaurant over about 70 others as the menu offered an extensive portion of the main menu and not just a limited selection that most other restaurants were offering for the deal. The four of us had full service meals, from calamari... More

My wife and I had lunch here on a Thursday. The place was not crowded, so we had seats close to the windows with a nice view of the water. They had a regular lunch menu and lunch specials. We ordered off the specials menu. We both ordered Martinis, my wife Lemoncello and I an apple. They were both good... More

While visiting family on Long Island, we ate lunch at this restaurant. Service was really poor and waitress abrupt. We has a very elderly person with us and she tried to rush him when eating. They were not attentive to our needs but when they did show up at our table, they were in a hurry. My family has been... More
