We have visited The Captain Loomis several times for dinner since it re-opened under new ownership. The food is really good. For an appetizer, try the Brochetta. Fresh herbs for garnish-yum! Entree-try either of the tuna dishes medium rare. Sirloin is also good. Dinner salads are really good-no iceberg there. We love this place-dinner for 2, a half carafe of... More

This little place, right off Main St. has historic roots in the town of Clarion. You can read about it when you walk in. We came in due to a local's recommendation. From the outside it looks promising, but doesn't have the best parking and access. The atmosphere is dull inside, at best. There isn't a lot of ambiance, however,... More

Since March 2014, The Captain Loomis is under new management and our experience there last night was wonderful. We started at the bar which is large, clean and fully stocked. After a drink, we moved to the restaurant and were promptly seated at a cozy booth. Our server, Bridget, was quick, efficient and pleasant. The food was absolutely delicious. My... More

We went to the Loomis today for lunch. We thought we would take our mother somewhere special for Mothers Day. Boy, were we wrong! The experience was horrible, from beginning to end. They only had a buffet. No menu, and they "forgot" to tell me that when I made the reservation. There was nothing posted about in the restaurant either.... More

The food was absolutely fabulous, my compliments to the chef! The waitress was VERY good! Very attentive and knowledgable, the only thing I would change is: if I had known the buffet was going to start I would have waited. But the Seafood Pomodoro was great! Definitely recommend this restaurant ! Thank you Trip-Advisor.(excellent app)

A business colleague and I had two meals here while in Clarion. The fact that we returned a second night is indicative of the quality of the food and the varied selections on the menu. The service was very good. I would return.

Great food! Creative recipes. The chef doesn't mind whipping up something new for a vegetarian. Summer menus take advantage of fresh produce. Wine list needs some help with variety.
