Pleasant! Good food and beer. Nice outdoor deck seating. In the heart of Camden. Great raspberry wheat beer! Great service, comfy and casual.

Great chowders. Went here for a late dinner and had a bowl of clam chowder. Delish! Lots of choices to appeal to all eaters.

I can't say enough about this restaurant. Everytime we go to Maine, we make it a point to go to Cappy's. The food is always good as is the service. One thing you definitely need to try is their lemon meringue ice cream pie.....outstanding!!!!!

Had drinks and appetizers. A place the locals go. Fun place. Sat at the bar and chatted with some people from Camden. Had a lobster roll that was ok. Would go back.

We enjoyed a good lunch with good friends with a great view of the harbor and ships. Wonderful experience in a picture postcard town.

It is difficult to critique a business when it is closed and there is no explanation when it will open. It appears to be under reconstruction with the old part, newer addition and bakery shuttered. There is some evidence of work being done somewhere on...More

Fantastic food, drinks, desserts, great service and quality for the buck! Parking is the only negative regarding taking time to eat here. Then there are the shops and library, GREAT too. The view is fantastic.

And glad it was. The sidewalks were all but pulled in but upstairs T Cappy's was still open. Nice conversations with folk at the bar; glad they were open.

Just writing to let you know this restaurant is closed. It's being renovated and I heard it will reopen as sea dog brewery but not able to confirm that.

It was just announced on the news that Cappy's is closing. Bummer. They may have had the best lobster roll on the coast. They had a commitment to healthy eating and trying new things. I will miss it.
