We sat here and watched the Masters for hours, had excellent service by the funniest bartender, Lupita!! She kept the bottles of Victoria coming, mixed excellent cocktails and made sure we had snacks to munch on. Very convenient location and a fun, open atmosphere.

Only stopped for a cold drink mid-day, however the place is very festive and the owners were super friendly. There was a small stage with wild horses statues charging from the back. A definite night time stop.

We stumbled upon Captain Don's on our first night in PV. What a fun place! Drinks are good and CHEAP, the band played lots of fun, familiar dance tunes, and we had a great time! We didn't eat here, so no review on that.

If you are looking for a place with lots of drunk Canadian and Americans who chain smoke with very mediocre food then this is the place for you. Not for us

Drinks were reasonably priced. The server spoke very good english. There is a bar menu but we chose to have supper elsewhere. Lots of ex-pats here so it is very easy to find other countrymen to chat with while you are here. The only drawback...More

You could ask them at Captain Dons. They have several TVs so they might do it for you especially if you have a few drinks & order some food.
