We went to Captain Nick's while in Bangor last week, I've been there once or twice before for lunch, a few years ago. We all had steamers (clams) as an appetizer. The clams were fine, but dirty (clams live in mud, I know, but there are ways to clean them a bit better), the broth had no flavor, and be aware that they use unsalted butter. We had to salt the butter for both the clams and the lobster. Salt = flavor, so flavor was sadly missing. Lobster stew was also 'ok' but needed salt due to the unsalted butter, it did have a lot of lobster meat, which was nice and fresh. The lobster (I had the 1 pound) was just slightly overcooked; not enough to send it back, but not enough to truly enjoy it as I had hoped. It wouldn't come out of the shell, and I'm no lobster novice. The service was very good. The decor could use some updating as someone else mentioned. I wouldn't recommend this place, but I wouldn't tell anyone to stay away. It was just Ok.
