There are plenty of bayside restaurants and bars in the area but their menus are mostly fried seafood and burgers, This year round restaurant offers... More

Went on a Tuesday night with a party of 13 to celebrate a birthday. I never received my meal and the server blamed the cook and the cook blamed the server. The manager on duty was not sympathetic to my negative dinning experience. He was extremely sarcastic when I requested some type of compensation. He eventually he took 10% off... More

My mom is 95 years young! She loves her sea food. Me I like the food I see. In the case of Captain Bill's both sea food and other foods are quite pleasing. We've taken mom to Captain Bill's a couple of times my wife & mother both agree the fish and lobster are fresh and very tasty. To my... More

My friend had tyne fried flounder sandwich which looked pretty good. Nice to have a choice of tap beer. Good breadbasket filled with rolls ,... More

Recently took my mother to Captain Bill's for dinner. Going to Captain Bill's was a family tradition. My grandparents used to take my mother there many years ago. We had a delightful dinner this time around. The bread basket had some lovely, warm, fresh breads. My mother had the Pan Seared Swordfish Au Poivre, and she enjoyed every last bite.... More

Captain Bill's has been around since the 1920's in one form or another, and it's never been better than it is now. We went for lunch with a group of 12, and were immediately seated. Diane was our server and she was excellent! The Bloody Marys are quite good, with horseradish added (as it should be!), several olives, and a... More
