When attending performances at the Theatre By The Sea for years, following the show we would always find some place local to eat. 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

Leaving the cold and rain of Buffalo,NY behind we enjoyed our meal at the refurbished Capt'n Jacks. I am not a big drinker but checked out the new Salt Marsh Pub before dinner. The bars overlook the water or the raw bar. Big screen TVs for watching the Preakness Race tonight. Very warm and welcoming atmosphere. I don't eat raw... More

This is a really fun lieel spot to stop for some fresh seafood. Look out on the water at the wildlife & local boaters. Great seafood selection as reasonable prices.

Say goodbye to the old menu, seating and atmosphere. Jack's new space is open and inviting. We started as a group of 6 and unexpectedly grew to a group of 12. We were immediately accommodated by shifting some tables around. There are three areas if you would prefer to belly up to the bar. One to view the shucking of... More
