“Worth a try.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

Great food, but service was a bit lacking. Seemed more reasonably priced than other waterfront restaurants, though, so gave it four stars. We appreciated the casual atmosphere.

“Good chowder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

Well known venue in the center of town overlooking the harbour. Convenient location if shopping or taking one of the harbour cruises. Pleasant waitstaff...no problem when requesting to share the delicious turkey cove club sandwich

“Average at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

Stopped for a quick dinner and while the service and views were good, the food was below average in our opinion. Seafood was fair, portions small, and dessert was poor. We won't be visiting again.

“Service depends on who's working”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

The hostess we had this week was very unfriendly and did her best to discourage us from eating at Cappys. We couldn't have a window table at 8 pm because there were only four of us and she had only a six top open. I would have understood on a weekend at 6 but not 8 pm on a week night. Instead she sat us in the worst table in the place where we quickly realized the temperature was too hot to enjoy our meal. The waitress was lovely and very helpful. Although the hostess would not turn on the ac, our waitress moved us to a table near the windows.

We are regular customers at Cappy's and have always had great experiences. This hostess however is a poor representative for the restaurant and should not be in the service industry. The waitress on the other hand was exceptional.

“Not impressed with restaurant side-Pub is good though”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

First impressions are everything and the hostess ruined it from the start. We have been here before and always sit on the smaller Pub side (which is great). We decided to sit on the larger side with a view. The hostess was not friendly at all and sat another party who clearly came after us, with no explanation to us, then took us to a table that required 2 steps-never bothering to ask if that was OK, as I walk with a cane. The server was a bad and the food wasn't any better. The server didn't even bring our food out and didn't check on us once. The pot pie was not cooked thru and a frozen one would have been better. The same goes for the baked haddock with crabmeat stuffing. Not fully cooked.
This was a disappointment and we will return, but only to be served in the smaller bar side, where the sandwiches and servers were good on previous trips.
