“9/2013- Nice View, Average Food”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

My wife and I had lunch at Cappy's after looking over the windjammers for a future trip. The view out this restaurant is great. The food, however, was just so-so. I had crab cakes and my wife had chowder and a salad. The crab cakes were heavy on mayonnaise and undercooked onions (heartburn!) and my wife's chowder was mediocre; she was impressed with her salad. There is a unisex toilet on the first floor (generally with a line) and seperate facilities upstairs. All-in-all, it's still worth the view, but I would stay away from the crab cakes.

“Bad Bartender Attitude”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

We always rendezvoused at Cappy's in the bar because its near the docks. This time our fun was spoiled by a surly bartender. When we had enough of him, we left, but he followed us to the street, demanding that we justify our small tip. Don't drink there.

“Best Meals on Our Trip!”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We spent a week in the area and frequented the local restaurants for lunch and dinner every day. This place was the best of all of them. Lobster and clam chowder were outstanding as well as all the other items we had. Generous amounts of seafood in all dishes we had!

“nice view, average food, slow service”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Beautiful view of the harbor from the upstairs dining room. Totally unimpressed with the chowder, which is supposed to be their specialty. I had chowder in about 4-5 places during our trip to Maine and this was my least favorite. Even though we had lunch at 2:30, after the busiest time of day, it took a long time to get served.
