“Missing waiter”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2007

Dined at the Captain's Table last week. Our waiter came over and took our drink order, delivered our drinks and ran off for about 10 minutes. When he came back he took our meal order and an order for more drinks and left again. We did not see him until after our food was delivered to our table by a bus boy, close to a half an hour later. We still did not have our 2nd order of drinks.
We assumed he had one or two more important tables he was waiting on and he could not be bothered with us even though our bill was over $200.
We had more contact and conversation with other waiters who were waitnig on tables next to us.
Very dissapointed with the Captain's Table-will not return.

“Captain's Table has shrugged off Hurricane Charley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2006

Ever since Friday the 13th, August 2004, when a force 4 hurricane devastated Punta Gorda, locals adopted a new motto: "Hurricane Charley is nature's way of telling you it's time to re-decorate". The Captain's Table, heavily damaged by the storm, has taken that motto to heart. It has rebounded wtih style, and added a new deck for diners who prefer open air eating - or who want to smoke. The menu is largely unchanged from "pre-Charley", with an emphasis on seafood. The restaurant still provides the best panoramic views of Charlotte Harbor available on the Peace River. The premium paid for those views is fairly high, as all menu items are priced $5 higher than you might expect at a restaurant without the scenic setting. However, the service is usually exemplary, and this restaurant is recommended for special occasions. Try the lobster ravioli in mushroom brandy sauce!

“Best Sunset Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2006

This place has the best sunset deck I have ever eaten at in my life. The price was a little high, but definitely worth it to see the sun set over the harbor. Located at the end of the pier in Fisherman's Village off of Highway 17 West.
