Typically ratings on TripAdvisor are good to use. However in this case the restaurant was terrible. Bad food and the oysters were not fresh. The bar also smelt of rancid beer. Over the years the place has gone downhill. It's supposed to be a local place but it's not worth the visit as there are too many other places to... More

The fish specials are what came in fresh that day and were heavenly! We started with oysters on the half shell that were you..y too! We wanted dessert but didn't... More

Looking for seafood in this town isn't hard, but finding GOOD seafood is different. The food here was really good. Dungeonous crab cocktail, clam chowder and a small CA mussel sausage pizza were all good. Restaurant is old and smells it. Server barely spoke English so getting questions answered was difficult at best. Coin toss here.

We came across this place after eating dinner at the restaurant across the street. I had the dungeness crab sandwich and it was delicious. Waiter was very good and knowledgeable of the local fish and what was in season. I would have no problem going back to Capurro's. It is not a tourist trap as some in the area are.
