This is a small restaurant and not for "fancy" eaters. You place your order at the counter and pick up and sit where you like. The food was fresh and cooked as ordered either broiled or fried. They have a fresh seafood take out counter as well.

Take out fried fish platter - Get home with order and as soon as the container is opened there is a horrible ammonia fish smell. There is no way that the employees did not notice this god awful odor when preparing this fish. DISGUSTING!!! Never will buy from this place again. Fresh fish - what a JOKE!!! The ammonia-like smell... More

Our family has been going to Captain Bob's for years, and are always satisfied. Good portions, and fair prices. Fried shrimp delicious, and the pepper hash a treat one does not find in many places. It can get crowded, so be prepared to wait at dinner on the weekends. Enjoy !!!

Great local dining choice. Eat in and take out options available. Our seafood was fresh, hot, and at a great price. No fancy lobster tanks or table settings... just basic seafood dishes done well.

I just started coming to Captain Bob's about 2 months ago. I was hoping to find a fish market where I could get really fresh fish and I found it, Captain Bob's. I have not visited his restaurant, just come here to buy fish to prepare at home, but I have never been disappointed. The fish here is very fresh... More

A "Go to" place for Fresh quality seafood in Quakertown. If you go to a farm for produce and a bitter shop for meat, then you'd go to Captain Bobs for your seafood.

The broiled scallops were delicious, but incredibly overpriced for the portion received (a couple were a bit sandy too). I got onion rings and cole slaw on the side. The slaw was completely dry, but tasted fresh. The onion rings were nice and hot, but the breading was a bit odd. I think they bread everything they fry in the... More

Bob's offers mostly fried seafood that's not inexpensive. Their chowder was unimpressive and way overpriced. The counter staff was surly and far from customer oriented. Despite all of that they appear to do a fairly brisk business, especially take-out. I have no plans to return after the unfriendly reception and the greasy, overpriced food.

I'm not rating the restaurant portion. I'm rating the seafood section. We come here frequently to buy clams, oysters, crabs, etc. Always fresh food and always good service
