“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

We celebrated my Mother's 93rd birthday there with 20 adults and 8 children. The staff was great, taking care of everyone, especially Mom, and putting up with 8 kids. The Table was beautiful with the candles and linens. We ordered off their regular menu and the food plentiful and delicious. Everyone raved over their choices. Would highly recommend The Captain's Inn . We will definitely return again and again!

“Tiki”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

The tiki is nice for drinks, they usually have good bands and no matter how packed they get you can almost always grab a place to sit. Unfortunately their outside food is not too great. I would stay a way from their bar food, although the inside has pretty decent stuff. The buffalo calamari and raw bar are probably your safest bet if you're at the tiki. Always nice to be able to pull up to the bar in your boat.

“Large portions, tasty food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We have come to the Captain's Inn several times over the years. The food is consistently well above the usual with large portions. My teenage grandson took part of his hime! My duck was done to perfection, My wife loved her softshell crab, Definitely a place to return to over and over.

“Great atmosphere, food not impressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

I would definitely recommend this place for drinks and apps. Also they have 2 different menus, one for inside and a more casual fare for the tiki bar. So that was a little weird because the views from the deck were great but I wanted a entree. Soooo apps on the deck and dinner inside. Apps were good oysters and calamari(chewy, overcooked). Dinner inside was mediocre, I felt like I was at a banquet or upscale diner. Overall great place for drinks at sunset and snacks before dinner.

“They hate veterans...........”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Some friends of a friend of mine went to go to this restaurant, and they rode their motorcycles to the restaurant, and they were refused entry as the so called bouncer said they were part of a motorcycle gang. These men, were retired police officers, and other various positions in life, and most of all our VETERANS. Who kept this country safe so this establishment could be open!!! Well, this establishment should be showed what real motorcycle gangs look like, HELLS ANGELS BRING IT ON. Please do not support or endorse this establishment, as they cannot support our unsung heros.. Thank you. and as far as their food goes, who cares...... thanks
