At the conclusion of our trip to Mass we came back to port and we were hungry. On of the first restaurants we came to in harbor loop was Captain Carlos. They had a live band on the out side deck and they didn't have a line waiting to get in so we stopped. Service wasn't bad at all. Our waitress was busy running around but very friendly. Food came and that was decently portioned. The atmosphere on the outside deck was humming and loud. As a matter of fact, a woman took her TOP OFF. Guess it's not a place for a quiet meal or for young kids. It's a place for SEE FOOD!

We went there on a Sunday night on one of the busiest weekends. At the time we got there, we sat right down. We were greeted promptly by our server who was very pleasant and accomodating. Unfortuneately, they were out of several items from the menu - some of which we were looking forward to. once we ordered, the wait was much longer than it should have been based on the number of people left in the restaurant. It took more than an hour to get our food. The server was very accomodating, bringing rolls and crackers for our son to keep him satisfied. Before the meal arrived, we were informed that the meal would be comped due to the issues they were having that evening. That was great, and half our meals were good. Not sure we will go back, but would consider giving them another try.

We stopped in on a Thursday night, after seeing from the road that they had a mechanical bull and some great music from the DJ playing outside. There was no cover charge and I believe they do this every Thursday. Watching people ride the bull was fun and the DJ that night was absolutely awesome. We weren't planning on staying out too late our first night of our trip, but we were having so much fun we stayed.

Great atmosphere and drinks until about 10pm and then the underage crowd xomes in and the atmosphere changes greatly. All of the sudden ou are worried that fights are going to start and people are way too drunk. Before that, we did enjoy the music and scene.

We were looking for a place that was not too expensive and had good seafood and Capt. Carlo's fit the bill. It was a good location with nice views. The stand out dish of the night was the scallops.
The service was good.

We will return.
