“Outstanding burgers”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

It may be named for the chowder, but it's remembered for the burgers. We had burgers (medium rare) with just LT that were the best in recent memory. The bar side is rather cramped and can be noisey, but don't let that stop you from enjoying some of the best ground beef around.

“Ruined”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

I used to love Cappy's because it was cozy and unique. Then they expanded and now it is just a tourist trap feel. Sterile. The crows nest, which was our fave place in town, is closed. I could cry. It is ruined.

“Cappy's Restaurants...best lobster ever”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Because of the advise of a friend we went to Cappy's Restaurant. This is a must go place for lobster. The restaurant is in the cute town of Camden, Maine. Cappy's is a very nice size place. You can sit in the pub area or have a view of the harbor. While in Maine we had dinner there twice. If you go order there summer salad and order the whole lobster. They have a very friendly staff and a great menu with numerous choices.

“good dinner”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Our dinner was quite good, but they brought the entrees before we had finished our salads. Great house salad dressing; we bought some at their store to bring home.

“Very Good Clam Chowder”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We just wanted something very little since we were still full from breakfast. We ordered a cup of clam chowder which was very good. We sat in the bar area which they really packed the people in. In fact, it was far to stuffy and crowded for us. Possibly ask to be seated in the main dining room maybe it has more room.
