Nice break from the State Park fare

We were looking for someplace wit "tablecloths" and found it at the Captain's Table. The waitress was excellent and efficient. wine was served quickly and reasonably priced. The entrees were cooked just right and the dessert, creme brulee was terrific. Overall, a good experience. $60 with tip.

We ate here the last night of our stay. It was next door to our motel. We had a delightful waitress and a lovely fish entree. Cocktails were moderately priced as were the meals.

we just decided to stop on a whim. from the outside, it doesn't look like much, but we generally like to stop at places that might be hidden gems. good food, great service. would go back if we didn't have to leave.
