On Saturdays they have the most delicious seafood buffet. Lobster, shrimp, all kinds of fish, prime rib, side dishes and desserts. Bring your big appetite!

Visted Capitain Olivers with my wife, another couple plus a young child. We were visiting for dinner while staying across the pond at Oyster Bay Beach Resort. The restaurant is perfectly situated on the marina on the French side of the pond. The menu is...More
