Lobster stew which looked more like lobster bisque was outstanding. Lots of lobster! My wife had the scrod which she also raved about. Sat outside which had a beautiful view. The service had nothing lacking. We departed as happy customers.

We have been going to Cap'n Jacks for years! it is now under new management and a new chef. We loved the old menu. They new menu features 1-1/4 lobster for $24 with potatoes, which I consider a rip off, compared to the old menu. The mussels (app) had a tasty tomato sauce but only included 12 mussels! Chowder was... More

This year we took my daughter to the performance of Grease. great show. My daughter has a disability and does have a wheelchair. They were so great at the theater. Following the performance a decision had to... More

Heard the place was redone--wanted to check it out...came with family and friends. Chowder, although lots of potatoes and bits of clam, was watery and tasteless. I ordered the whole belly clams...they reeked and tasted of "old oil" although they seemed fresh. I sent them back. Two of us waited for our salads--they never came. The waitress told us that...

My parents came from Florida and wanted to try Cap'n Jack's Restaurant. The service was great. They ordered so much food, I took my whole meal home. The calamari was great. I had fried scallops, and they were very good. The white clam chowder was okay, and the clam cakes were delicious. My husband had whole belly clams and he... More

With company visiting for the start to the Memorial Day week-end, we headed to a spot that had outside seating. It was not crowded when we arrived at about 12:45 p.m. We were graciously escorted to the deck. Emma was our waitress and was efficient and friendly. All 3 of us loved our lunch choices. For $7, I had Baby... More

We have always liked Captain Jacks - we did try the restaurant across the street - but we always go back to Captain Jacks! So much homier. Today we went to the new addition to Captain Jacks - the pub and raw bar. Oh my goodness it was so good! I had a Rueben (lean pastrami, lots of saurekraut, perfectly... More
