Reviewed October 3, 2011

Capt Thomson's Resturant is a very nice barge on the water. We went they had nice crowd but not crowded.
We sat down, ordered, our beverages were delivered and a crude loud "family" sat next to us. They were inappropriate and offensive to be kind. By the time our dinner was delivered we had heard and seen enough. We asked to be moved and were told it may be a while. We left before dinner and paid the full bill. My wife was very upset - we skipped dinner enitely that evening.
Dollars before service and satisfaction .

Capt.Thompson's new restaurant is Riley's right across from the resort.
We stopped for breakfast and the food was amazing!
Beautiful presentation. Generous portions. Delicious food!
Great service!
There were 4 of us and we loved everything.
We photographed the plates because the meals were so attractively presented.
The pancakes were the best I've EVER tasted at home or otherwise!
We returned the next morning and on our next visit to Alex Bay we will stop there for dinner.

This was our third or fourth trip to Capt. Thompson's. While we were never overwhelmed by the food, the setting always made it worth it. Now it seems like it's on the brink of closing. There was only a tiny menu. I ordered the veggie panini and it was pretty good. Came with a skimpy side of sweet potato fries. The place was dead and kind of depressing. We won't be going back.

chose the special-Beef Burgandy over mashed potatoes.was the 5th of july. Three of us ordered beef burgundy and three of coudn't find the beef. really skimped on the beef but couldn't finish the potatoes. $16.00 for mashed potatoes and a small piece of corn on the cob that was soggy, terrible food quality and the mashes pot, tasted like they were a salt lick. never again. told waitress about our orders and got back Im sorry... goodbuy
