“Good beer and seafood in cozy atmosphere”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Captain Parker's Pub is centrally located on the main road in West Yarmouth, right next to the Adventure Golf area and close to a number of motels.
We visited on a Friday evening and were told that we would unfortunately have to wait for a table for one hour unless we wanted to sit at the bar. We decided for the latter which turned out to be a good choice as we were served really quickly and got a chance to have some chats and laughs with the bar staff.
The Pub has 11 beers on tap (the ubiquitous american water substitutes but also some really tasty ones), a sizeable menu of seafood and other dishes at reasonable prices, friendly staff and live broadcasts of major sport events.
Overall, probably the best place to spend your evening when staying in Yarmouth.

“Went for the chowder”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

My fiancée is a Boston native and we went based on advertisements about the award winning chowder. He ordered it in a bread bowl and said it was good but not outstanding or especially noteworthy. I had a salad with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes which was goo. Both were a bit pricey but I'm sure everything is in the area.

“OK meal blah service”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

I really wanted to eat at Captain Parker's on this visit to the Cape since I thought it the place my husband and I might have eaten on our first trip to the Cape 29 years ago on our honeymoon. Once there my husband did not think it was the right place but we came for lunch so we ordered their "famous" chowder and Lobster rolls. The chowder was good but nothing special and the lobster rolls were also good but nothing to go crazy over. Our waitress had no personality and was just doing her job not friendly but nothing to really complain about. It was a kind of boring lunch. Nothing bad about it and I would give it another try maybe for dinner next time.

“Wannabe That Isn't”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This pub is nothing more than a trash sports bar trying to become an upscale restaurant. It failed. Your first hurdle will be getting by the clueless hostess who thought our request for "first available" meant an "outside table," which turn over far less frequently than inside tables. As a result, we watched a dozen couples get seated before us when we decided to ask. Clueless!

After that setback, this restaurant had nothing more to help it rally to a win. The view for example is nothing more than Highway 28 complete with noise. Patrons are asked to wait for their table in the parking lot. Thank heavens it wasn't raining. The wait staff are rushed to turn over tables so we were served our meal in thirty minutes flat. That alone is cause enough for indigestion and the food doesn't help. The fare served at this restaurant is no better than the food at your local 99 or Red Lobster except three times more expensive.

Pass this pub by and look for something else. I would rather stay home and eat cardboard than return to Captain Parker's Pub in So. Yarmouth, MA. At least at home I won't be kept waiting for an hour.

“Except for the chowda, just average”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Had salad and grilled shrimp, nothing special about it. Could have added cranberries to my salad for $2.50 more!?! Was expecting more for the #4 ranked restaurant...sat outside, right by the highway and Parker River...not that scenic.
