Went to Captain Pell's last night with friends. Been there many times over the years and it never fails. When you walk in you realise this is not some fru fru place, it looks like a dive with everything worn and signs from diifferent orginizations over the wall. But this is the appeal of Captian Pell's it is a crab house and crab houses are messy places! Due to the small group instead of crabs we had entrees. First time for me. I had the crab cakes and the portions were very generous. The two cakes were large and tasty, the server stated they were made daily in house and tasted like it. The fries were good as was the cole slaw. We also shared spiced shrimp which were large and well done. Captian Pell's is what it is and it does it well. If you like crabs or seafood and are looking for a place where you can just relax and not worry this is it.
