We've been going to Cap's Place for nearly 10 years, and we keep going back for many reasons. First, the place itself. I won't discuss the history, because that would take away from the fun of learning about it on the boat and at the...More

It is certainly different. From the short boat ride, to the seriously quaint old bar, to the warm welcome in the restaurant, it all lived up expectations. Ambiance and great food sat with amazing new friends from Ohio, we had a fabulous time.
