Interesting Establishment

I will start by saying that everyone should experience this restaurant at least once and decide for yourself. Atmosphere can most certainly win out over the food, so it depends which is more important to you. The food is just OK. The menu is fairly limited and mediocre. The uniqueness of the... read more

FUN tropical atmosphere hidden in the PA mountains. The food was great with plenty of options for those who are gluten free like me. The outdoor patio has plenty of seating and the live music was enjoyable to listen to! Very relaxing with good friends and good drinks!!!

My Wife and I took a drive and realized we were close to Mountain Spring/Captain Cove and it was a beautiful evening so we decided to stop. We had a nice table for two with a nice view. We had great appetizers and a wonderful meal. The waiter was outstanding and very on top of it, plus the customer service... More

I love coming to Captain's Cove with a group of friends! The ambiance outside is just beautiful. We always have drinks, eat, then hang out in the swings. The appetizers are all good. I really enjoy eating the fish tacos. Great little place, with ok service!

We went as a group of 8 ladies on a Tuesday evening at 6 pm. The wait to sit outside was long ( 1 hour) because it was a beautiful evening and understandably also because we had a larger group. So, we opted to sit inside. There was maybe 9 tables full (all but 2 already had their food) and... More

Been here three times, all in warmer weather where the outside seating feels like being on vacation. Just a fun place to relax with a beer and friends. The food is typical fare found in most casual restaurants and I can't say any of the meals I've had rated in the outstanding category. For me, summer is finding great outside... More

Beautiful place. Average small portioned food. Service poor and extremely slow. Go for the night life. Stay away from the restaurant experience.

Food was just okay, nothing special and overpriced. We were here for a birthday celebration but given the choice we would have went elsewhere
