“Check your tab carefully”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

I have been to Capt'n Parker's a handful of times. Always sat at the bar for dinner, bartenders were never overly friendly but food was good and reasonably priced, especially the early bird specials. My wife and I went for an early dinner on a Saturday evening and were seated in the dining room. Prime rib was nicely done, baked potato was overcooked and mixed veggies were so-so. But the kicker is, when we got our bill and checked it we discovered that we were being charged for the more expensive menu for after early bird time and we were seated clearly long before the posted 5:30 end of early bird time. We were also charged for a drink that was never ordered. When we brought this to the attention of our waitress she said she was sorry about that with what we saw as a very insincere attitude and tone. We would have been happy to accept any reasonable apology, but none was forthcoming. So watch your tab when eating here, or better yet, try someplace else-we will. By the way, the clam chowder is a thick misrepresentation of the real thing.

“Delicious Seafood!”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Best chowder I have had in years! My husband's fried shrimp platter was a generous portion with medium-large sized shrimp - not a load of little fried ones most people are used to.

Pub atmosphere, great service.

“Best Clam Chowder!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

We love Captain Parker's Pub.
It is a year round restaurant on Cape Cod. Their food is excellent and the Clam Chowder has win many contests and awards. The crowds/wait time in the summer is very long. Try going off times.
Service is great.
