“Re-opened and refurbished.”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

After many months of being closed, Captain's Cove is now open. The old, tired interior has been updated into a fresh, pleasant nautical theme. Service was good and attentive, even on a busy Friday evening. As you might expect, the fare is seafood. Haddock fish fry was large, hot and tasty. The pan-seared shrimp and scallops were done to perfection. Sides are large and quite good. They have a small fresh seafood counter, and all menu items are available for takeout. Glad Captain's Cove is back!

“Dive, but great food”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

Captain's has take out and table service. The place is a bit worn, but they have really good seafood and friendly staff. Don't let the looks turn you away from this hidden gem of a restaurant. The don't serve alcohol. Great prices too, I had a feast for $25.
