“I liked it better when it was the Captain's Table”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

The views from the deck are still great, but the interior seems sterile and the menu / food isn't as good. We went on a Monday evening and the place was empty - no trouble getting a waterfront table. We had the whole family, so our orders were all over the place.
The kids liked the mozarella sticks. The hush puppies and calimari were ok. All of the apitizers appeared to be from a package (e.g. the calimari had no tenicle pieces). The honey serve with the hush puppies was OUTSTANDING.
I had a forgettable crab cake - breaded and full of filler.
My wife had a nice piece of tuna over a caeser salad. The tuna was good, but the lettuce was a bit wilted.
Another adult diner had a salad with steak on top - she really enjoyed the steak, but left a good sized piece of gristle behind.
The other adult diner had sauted soft shell crabs - tastey, but needed to be cleaned a bit better - found a bit of lung in two.
The kids enjoyed their chicken tenders, mac and cheese, and burgers.
Service was OK - a bit slower than expected considering the resturant was basically empty.
We may come back, but it'll be for the view, not the food. We used to go to Captain's Table for the food and the view.

“Missing the Captain's Table”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Had dinner here Fri night. Menu pretty blah and prices way too high. Miss the choices on the Captains table menu for sure.
Redo is nice and our server was good.
Probably won't go back and this used to be one of our "go to's" after a day of sailing.

“It was beyond awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

It was my Birthday and ruined the whole day...I had the Chicken Chesapeake and my husband had a Crab Cake. He said it was the worst crab Cake Ever. My Chicken Chesapeake was horrible and the Baked Sweet Potato was not all the way done. The only thing that was nearly edible was the bread. Never going there again.

The service was not very good either.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

We used to eat at the Captain's Table fairly often for breakfast and occasionally for lunch. The new owners have done a nice remodeling job; too bad they didn't do the same nice job on the food. We went a few weeks ago for breakfast and it was nothing special. The prices are high and the food was just okay. I miss the Captain's Table crab omelet and the friendly, motherly waitresses. The prices of the dinner entrees are astronomical, and there's nothing on the menu that stands out. I don't think we'll go back.

“They should have fresh food when they are on The Chesapeake!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Recently went for lunch with friends. There were 5 of us and we all agreed that the food was beyond awful. They did such a great job in redoing the building after the previous owners left, but they didn't save money for a good cook. My friends had a fried haddock sandwich and it was definitely frozen, heavily breaded and fried until way overdone. My crab cake was machine shaped - like a hamburger patty - and full of filler. It was definitely not a Maryland crab cake. It definitely came out of the freezer and did not fast fresh. The coleslaw was soggy and tasteless. Overall a terrible experience and we will warn others no to go to this one. JUST HIRE A COOK AND IT COULD BE GREAT!
