“Popular with locals and out -of -towners”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

My husband and I visit Captain's Place fairly often and it's always busy. Although it is classified as a Portuguese restaurant there are other dishes that satisfy pretty much everyone's taste. Everyday there are 6 or so specials including a couple of soups and varied entrees.The menu consists of several appetizers typically found in most area Portuguese restaurants along with some American choices.This is the case with the entrees as well which includes several codfish and other seafood and meat dishes. The restaurant has a full bar, which is quite lively on most evenings, and offers take out as well.
We visited with a large group last week on a snowy night and had to wait a bit for a table despite our reservation and the bad weather. The wait was not long and the owner Joe, quickly set up our 2 tables as soon as the lingering patrons left. Our 2 servers Nella & Candice were very efficient and friendly as always and everyone was served at approximately the same time.
My husband loves the Arroz com Polvo e Camarao, Octopus with shrimp & rice and it happened to be a special that evening. There were a few lobster specials as well and a few seafood dishes that included lobster.
The seafood with linguini looked very yummy and was a generous portion.
Other popular dishes that members of our group ordered were Steak Originale ,Baclhao Gomes da Sa and the Filetas (fried fish). I decided to go in a different direction and veered away from my usual Portuguese choice of Cacoila so I ordered the Lobster Ravioli with alfredo sauce. Although it was tasty, the pasta itself was much too al dente. Desserts range from the usual sweet rice( rice pudding) and flan to moulton lava cake, cheesecake and other non Portuguese choices. if you want to remain traditional the rice pudding is delicious as is the flan or Pudim da Avo ( Grandma's pudding) ,Capuccino and of course espresso are offered.
The owners, who also own The Mill, which serves breakfast and sits on the same lot ,have created a friendly atmospher coupled with good food and drink.They have established a loyal clientele of "regulars".
If you haven't been there, take a drive to Acushnet for lunch or dinner.and while you're there you might just catch Joe, the owner, performing some little magic tricks for the children dining with their parents.
