I have been here several times since it has reopened and have not been disappointed once. Twice dined in and one take out. Dining in was pleasant and the staff were nice. But the seafood platter was wonderful. The jumbo shrimp were so lightly breaded, not over the top like cheap seafood places. Very tastey!! The steamed clams were done... More

I go there several times a year, they have outstanding prices on Fresh seafood of all kinds. The seafood is right in the display case as you walk in and you can chose your pieces - they have take-out available or dine in, either way, it can't be beat for great fresh seafood meals.

Walked in to pick up my take out order! I order Ahi Tuna Tacos, I know sounds delicious! It was a dinner special 3 tacos, 2 sides, and fries. I walked and noticed the chef cooking something in the microwave, pulled it and chopped it up. Later I noticed that what he was chopping up was in my tacos. My... More

This was our first time going to the Captain's Cove restaurant on Dick Road in Cheektowaga and the food, service and value for our meal was outstanding. I had the haddock broiled and my husband had the lobster and steak. Both meals were cooked to perfection, the servings generous, fresh and service great. We will definitely be going back.

Waitress was O.K.- although it took VERY long to get our appetizer, and even LONGER to get our fish frys. She kept apologizing, although whats the hold up. Others around us received... More

After many months of being closed, Captain's Cove is now open. The old, tired interior has been updated into a fresh, pleasant nautical theme. Service was good and attentive, even on a busy Friday evening. As you might expect, the fare is seafood. Haddock fish fry was large, hot and tasty. The pan-seared shrimp and scallops were done to perfection.... More

Captain's has take out and table service. The place is a bit worn, but they have really good seafood and friendly staff. Don't let the looks turn you away from this hidden gem of a restaurant. The don't serve alcohol. Great prices too, I had a feast for $25.
