“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We were seated quickly and served quickly. We had a great view of the Harbor. All of our food was delicious. We would definitely go back!

“Chowda Chowda”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We were looking for a light meal after 7:00 PM and Cappy's was recommended by our motel. We waited about 10 minutes for a table - then enjoyed great Clam Chowder and Fish Chowder with a fresh salad. Service was good, a full bar is available, and the value is good. It was dark so there was no harbor view, but the simple furnishing upstairs was bright and clean. Canned chowder is available to buy also.

“Great place for Lobster dinner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

4 of us ate at Cappy's for dinner, after the recommendation from our Birchwood Motel owner, and were very pleased. We decided to all order the Lobster Dinner since we hadn't had a chance to eat our lobster in Maine yet, and Cappy's price was reasonable. The service was very good and the meal excellent. I had some blue cheese mashed potatoes that were excellent (if you like blue cheese!). Chowder was also very good. Atmosphere pleasant...a little crowded and noisy, but fun. Definite recommend.

“Hmmmmm....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Good Food, but way to pricey for a simple cup of soup and salad, just because it sits in a prime location in downtown Camden.
