Very nice dinner. Not overly crowded, wonderful views, friendly service staff, and food quality was great. Being able to hear the music from the bar downstairs did deter from the ambience somewhat, but we were very delighted over all with the meal and experience.

Great service provided by Keith. Scallops were delicious, NOT overcooked and plentiful as well as a great price. Grouper also excellent and a great value.

Loved this place. Our party got there rather late and the staff stayed late to accommodate us. Older woman at the bar playing piano was a nice touch. The bread and butter was delicious and the chowder was THE BEST EVER! Big chunks of seafood in a sauce to die for. The salmon was amazing and my husband's chicken dish was delicious too. It's a bit pricey but worth it. More...

The escargot and lamb was excellent. The chowder was thick and full of seafood, very good. The meal started with crunchy bread and sweet butter. The decor is very nice and elegant. The views can't be beat. The service was impeccable.  The o my complaint I had is my steak was ordered well done and had to be sent back two times as it was rare each time. But once it was cooked to order it was very good.  Prices are on the more expensive side. There is live music curtesy of a piano player. Very mice atmosphere. More...

Rather quiet last Friday at lunch. Service good and not overly attentive. Great view of the harbor and bay. Food well prepared and presented. Great place to entertain.

Great view of the Peace River - strong emphasis on seafood.  Can sit indoors or out; restaurant is probably 20 feet above the river.  A little on the pricey side for Punta Gorda, yet fancier than most places between the view and the ambiance (leans toward the romantic).Many different types of seafood appetizers and main dishes.  They do have other choices; but that's not the specialty.  They have a full bar.  At the time we went, a piano player, friendly wait staff - and good food.  There's enough variety on the menu to suit everyone - about 12-15 different entrees.I've seen some of the reviews talk about making reservations and the crowds.  Can't speak to that; we went in June for my wife's birthday - off-season in Punta Gorda; place was nearly empty - got to banter with the waiter quite a bit.

It's been about a year since I dined at the Captains Table  and having the day off of work yesterday wanted something different we decided to try it again for lunch. The remodeling of the inside dining room is just gorgeous and you could never complain about the beautiful harbor views. It's always my favorite place to sit with the gorgeous view of the harbor. We started off with the captains margarita flatbread, tomatoes, garlic, basil and fresh mozzarella with a balsamic glaze. It came out fresh piping hot and just perfectly crisp. We then went for the Caesar Salad  with a piece of grilled salmon. The romaine  was perfectly crisp with delicious parmesan crisps and toasted rye crostini bread. The salmon cooked perfectly with  beautiful grilled marks and it had that perfect char on the outside. I have to say this by far was the best caesar salmon I've had in a long time. The service was great and the server was super friendly and on the ball. Captains Table is differently back on my list ! More...

Overall this place is pretty good it's at the end of fishermen's Village and it's upstairs although it does have an elevator if you need one. You can sit on the back patio on the second floor and you have a very nice view of the sunset or the water depending on the time of day. The food is pretty good although the beef tenderloin appetizer wrapped in bacon is very much overcooked although the staff did warn us about that. The captains chowder was really good although it could've been a little hotter it was very tasty. The  waiter his name was Richard he was a really nice guy and very attentive .  I did not have any main course meals here although the appetizers were nice and the lava cake dessert was definitely pretty good.

It was hard getting a read on this place because the reviews were/are all over the place! You really can't base a review on your drink since most places have more than one and they change often. My advice is if you don't like your drink, send it back!You also can't base a review on the prices because it's all relative. If you're a cheapo then you may find someplace pricey that I won't. (I'm not cheap)You have to base it on the food, service, decor, etc. It's not rocket science. Well for some I guess it is. So here is a real, honest, review.We sat outside which was great because it was a perfect night. Beautiful view of the sunset and passing boats. Our waiter was tip top. Brought our drinks right away and took our orders promptly.I love rum so I ordered rum drink. I forgot which one. Maybe a rum runner. Holy cow! Talk about rum overkill! OK, so I guess their bartender needs some lessons. Moving on.I had the Oysters Rockefeller and they were perfect! For my main I had the grilled salmon with a brown sugar marinade. It was just the right amount of crispy. It came with a mushroom risotto and steamed broccoli. My daughter had the coconut shrimp the was slightly on the overcooked side and the grilled Captains Platter. A nice assortment of grouper, scallops, shrimp, and I forget what else. My daughter said it was, "good."My only other complaint was that they only had regular coffee. No cappuccino or espresso. Seriously? Who doesn't have those two It's definitely, "touristy"  or rather placed right into a touristy spot. But all of the food was, "good." None of it blew up my skirt, but I'd go back just for the outside view. They also offer valet parking but you have to pull all the way up to the front of the restaurant. Be careful because there are a lot of people walking about. More...

My husband and I moved to Punta Gorda about 10 months ago and we try to go out for lunch or dinner every other week or so.  Tonight, we tried The Captain's Table and we were delighted with our meal!  We cannot comment on drinks from the attractive bar, because we only drink iced tea.  The tea was really good and we do tend to be picky about the quality or lack of in restaurants.  Silly, but that's just us.  Our wait-person was Melanie.  She did an excellent job, bringing hot bread and honey butter to the table, took our orders promptly and advised us wisely. We enjoyed our filet of beef with crab and hollandaise, served with really delicious garlic mashed potatoes and correctly cooked asparagus.  So many places cook vegetables into inedible mush, but this asparagus was al dente and good!  We were offered additional bread, refills on our delicious iced tea and dessert menus.  Melanie made our evening perfect and so did the chef in the kitchen.  We will DEFINITELY return...with friends next time!

Have been dining here for a few years now and used to think that the food was absolutely dreadful.  In the past year or so,  they must have changed chefs or owners.  The place has been completely renovated and for the first time, it is worth paying the higher prices for that beautiful view.  The place looks great and the food is wonderful.  They have had the same pianist for many years who is extremely talented.  Our family is always pleased at the Captain's Table, now.  Great job to the staff and owners!

The meal was amazing.  We got a view of the sunset over the water from our table, which was beautiful.  The waitress was friendly, professional, and attentive.  I cannot believe that the restaurant was empty because it was a fantastic experience.  The decor was interesting but wildly classy.  I was delighted by every little detail.  Even with a party of seven, we had an experience that blew us away.  I cannot wait to for my next experience!

Five of us went for a mother's day brunch food was excellent raw oysters, prime rib, salad and much more. Service excellent as well. Only criticism would be that with a brunch there is usually an egg dish. Despite no eggs it was a wonderful lunch! More...

This is one of our favorite places to visit in Punta Gorda! Today we were happily surprised by the updated decor inside and out. Our server, Brandy, went out of her way to be kind and personable and we really appreciated her "extra mile." The food was delicious and perfectly portioned. Will we be back to enjoy this lovely gem? You bet! More...

I lunched here with my grandma last Friday. My grandma is a regular and insisted I order the salad with the COCONUT VINAIGRETTE.... it did not disappoint! It turns out she has pretty good taste. The coconut perfectly juxtaposed the blackened shrimp, the bold Gorgonzola and the juicy tomatoes. So the food seems to be all around excellent quality and flavor. Portion size was decent for a lunch salad, but a little pricey! I dropped a star for the service. We were not read the daily specials that we heard another table getting. And the waitress was a little less than sociable. Also, while the portion size was adequate for me, I'm not sure it warranted the price. You are definitely paying for views and atmospheres... and that coconut vinaigrette! More...

Location, Location, Location!I visit the Captains Table at least once a season as it is a great meeting spot for my Naples pal.  What a wonderful surprise to see a major remodel took place over the summer.  The bar is all opened up, everything is modern and contemporary.  Very fresh feeling. They take a reservation via Open Table and that is a great thing to do in season.  We were able to sit outside with a view of the water.  So lovely.  Service is consistently good, they all hustle when it is busy.  My only disappointment is that the menu has also become a bit more "trendy" or contemporary.  I missed some of the more basic offerings.  Same ownership has a more casual open air restaurant on the first level.  Seating there is along the lines of tables and benches.  It's ok, we just prefer to be more comfortable upstairs.  There are golf cart shuttles to get people from the parking lots if you need it. I will be back! More...

Met with friends for a Christmas get-together and since I was the one who picked the place, I was overjoyed when everyone fell in love with the Captains Table. Everyone's food was perfect. One of the ladies who rarely eats much ate everything on her plate because it was so delicious. The service was friendly and we didn't feel rushed. The view is wonderful, as well as the atmosphere. Everyone wants to make this restaurant our go-to place. As a side note, my husband and I just returned from a transatlantic cruise and I would say the food, atmosphere, and service matched what we experienced on our wonderful cruise. Don't miss The Captains Table. More...

We were there for Mother’s Day and had an excellent meal & Service. Yesterday, the service left a lot to be desired (apologies from the waitress don’t cut it). We were celebrating a birthday last night, so was hoping it would be a special experience. The food was good, but not excellent. We were planning to bring my mother here for her birthday on December 20, but we will find somewhere else to take her after last nights experience. More...

Amazing view out in the patio for sunset! Megan was an amazing waitress, we had a wonderful experience!  Watching the sun go down over the water with great good & company made us realize the Captain's Table is quickly going to become one of our favorite spots! Definitely asking for Megan again next time we come, she was so great! Personable, kind, helpful...she really took good care of us & we can't wait to come back! Check out my pix to see what yummy creations we feasted on.  I'll continue to add more pics as we work our way through the menu! I cannot remember what the titles were of our dishes but they were both tasty! Definitely glad we stopped in after house hunting! More...

First time in years that we went out for Thanksgiving. We were seated immediately and had our drink order taken and served within minutes.

We had a late 6:45 reservation because of last minute plan change. We were asked if we had a reservation. We did. At the same time an employee said Do not take their table, no more people to be seated. The hostess said they have a reservation. This was offsetting as we could see a number of vacant tables.There was no soup or salad on the buffet. The meats were good, moist and well seasoned but the desserts were grocery store type and there was no fruit. The buffet was mostly carbs. Our waitress was very excellent and attentive. We felt the meal was overpriced for the menu. Golden Coral serves the same type of buffet for 1/3 the price. More...

We enjoyed our dinner outside on the deck where we could watch the sunset and boats coming and going into the harbor. It was a warm, beautiful evening, with excellent service, food, and drinks. The Escargot was outstanding! It was quite filling so I had the Coconut Shrimp for my main course and it too, was delicious. My husband had the swordfish topped with Mango salsa and he didn't leave a single bite! We look forward to returning again soon! More...

The Captain’s Table is located at the Fisherman’s Wharf in Punta Gorda. The only negative thing I can say is that there was difficulty in finding parking. On the evening that we were there, there was the first night of the mall’s Holiday Lights Festival. We had to fight the crowds to get to the Captains Table. What we hoped would be a relaxing evening was quite stressful.Three out of the four dinners were excellent. The Fruta Di Mare was not what was expected. On the disappointing side. More...

I have been going there for 17 years, and it was always one of my favorite places. I will never go back. They partially remodeled it and did nothing but make things worse. From the girls who greeted us with a bad attitude, to lousy service, to kitchen mistakes to a menu which did not include one single entrée or appetizer that I would order - it was a horrible evening. The following evening - Laishley Crab House (the same owners) - everything was great.JamesF More...

Myself and eight other friends went to the Captains Table after we heard of the big change to the overall ambiance of the bar and dining area. That was certainly the case! Everything is cleaner and more convenient to diners and barflys. The construction removed all the odd steps and different levels in the place and it is indeed a nice place to look at with great views of the water. Sadly, that was the best part of the visit. We should have been tipped off by the half empty restaurant on a Friday night. We've been there many times and it was always packed, especially on Fridays when the offered the seafood buffet.Sad point # 1. The seafood buffet has been discontinued. It was great but the menu changed and out goes the seafood buffet.Sad point # 2. It took over an hour after we were seated to get our food. There's no way it should have taken that long with the number of actual customers that had in the place. They're going to be in big trouble when (and if) the place is full when the snow birds come back.Sad point # 3. It appeared there were only 2 or maybe three waiters for all the tables. Granted, half the tables were empty but there's a lot of space to cover. There should have been more wait staff. Again, watch out for the disaster in the making come January and the season.Sad point # 4. I ordered a New York strip and it was so tough I could barely cut it. It had so much gristle in it it was barely chewable. Others complained of cold mashed potatoes which I can never understand. The plates must have been sitting out in the kitchen for pickup way too long. When the manager was told, he said he would bring more over to the table. Why would we want more cold potatoes?Sad point # 5. It took almost a half an hour to get our checks. We couldn't wait to get out of there.Be forewarned, this is not you parents Captain's Table. You will be disappointed. More...

I was disturbed by our handling at the front desk. We had a reservation for four at 6:00 PM. We arrived a few minutes early. At first the hostess wanted to seat us in the bar. I said that would not be satisfactory and I would like a regular table close to the window so we could enjoy the view. She then tried to put us in one of your high top tables in the back section of the dining room. I again told her that this was not satisfactory. She then conferred with what looked like a manager and he put us in what was probably the most desirable table in the room. It was a great dinner and a great view. My only contention was that I had made the reservation over 24 hours in advance and that should have seated us with a little priority over walk-ins. I hate to have a good experience tainted with the action of a hostess who was unsure as to what she could do. Thank you for reading this, we have been dining in your restaurant since 1983 when it was Nightingale's and have seldom had a complaint. The new layout and entrance are a great improvement. More...

Fantastic venue with multiple bayside views. New upscale decor with matching menu to fit any palette.Server Megan was articulate and kind explaining the beers, also suggested some entrees that were popular.Observed chef mingling with customers all smiles with full tummys. We had Floridian chicken with grilled asparagus which was served with heaps of grilled vegetables. The Caesar salad was well dressed and left room for a heavenly almond cake dessert which presented with a torte and fresh whipped cream.Well worth the visit, perfect for a romantic meal with sunset views!

Food was good, service not so good. Wine was very slow in coming. Arrived after we had half eaten our appetizers. This seems to be an ongoing problem with this restaurant, they need to review their system. I think the bar tender gets into the act and if he is busy, the servers have to wait for him to finish. Also, our server seemed to have tables all over the place, it was hard to track her down if we needed something. More...

We use to love the Captain’s Table. We were disappointed when they did away with the Friday Buffet. We have eaten there many times in the past. This time was a total disappointment. The menu was not as good as before. Didn’t have as many choices. The prices have went up and the food was not as good as it use to be. Service was ok. In our opinion, the food quality was not the same as before and we were paying more money for less satisfactory food. We have a 40 minute drive to Punta Gorda. We will not be making that trip to eat at Captain’s Table. Not worth the drive. More...

Not very good.Brought a table of ten and was kind of sorry we went there because many had never been there.Everybody thought their lunch was average at best.The salad always brought me there but without it i doubt i will go back.I think in an effort to be cutting edge, Chefs ruin their best dishes.Some had a new fad , which is a burger with a mac and cheese bun.Not very good.Also, the lunch took almost an hour to get our food and it wasn't busy.

We did not enjoy the food or service. Once seated we had to wait to get drinks and even during our meal we had to stop another waiter just to get our tea glasses refilled and even get our bill when done eating. They were not busy and we were not the only ones that were waiting on drink refills and food service. One couple at a table behind us even got up to leave before eating for they waited so long just for a waiter to even get something to drink. Maybe it was a bad day for this place or maybe it's a bad place to eat, I don't know but I do know I will never eat at this very high price place again! More...

Have been to the Captain's Table many times over the years. 4th of July was perfect to view the Harbor and the swim. The food was okay. Thought the Jambalaya was a bit mushy. The calamari could have been crispier. Service was terrific. A nice day. More...

The service was as outstanding as the food was a disappointment. The chicken was dry and the asparagus was so over cooked it was inetible. The bratworst was a complete failure. It did not even taste like bratworst! On the other hand, the waiter was attentive and made us feel as though our enjoyment was paramount. While we will return we will probably not pick a national holiday or the house's "special menu!"Kathryn J More...

Food was excellent t he only issue was my husband had small pieces of clam shell in his food.He had the Fruit du Mare,which had plenty of seafood in a marinara sauce but the pieces of shell were annoying .You couldn't see them until they were in your mouth.Other than that very good and I would go back anytime.

You must have had a server call out. The cook burned the bread according to server. Had to wait. He had too many tables to cover. I think he was tending bar also. He said you were out of Bacardi Gold for my drink. Worst experience I've had of all my dining with you. I think you were short staffed. Will give you the benefit of this. More...

Three of us went for lunch on Thursday and got a great table with a beautiful view of the harbor.  We saw some dolphins swimming, almost like they were our entertainment.  The food was good, we had the Cobb salad, the lobster grilled cheese sandwich (extremely tasty) and the lobster flatbread (special).  Our server, Richard, was friendly and very accommodating (though he may have been bored because the place was very empty).  I'm sure during the winter months it's a very different atmosphere, but we enjoyed the quiet meal and great service.

Great ambiance and service was terrific. Food was marginal to say the least. I had a grouper sandwich with a piece of very dry and tasteless grouper. My husband had a trio of fish which were very dry. We are not big eaters but I just say the miniscule amounts of grouper and scallops served was shameful for the price. We were a party of four and everyone felt the same. Will never go back. More...

My first visit to the city of Punta Gorda and we visited the wharf shops and this fine place.  Located at the very end of the wharf and on the second floor Captains Table offers inside and outside dinning with a beautiful water view.We came for lunch and I was looking for something different than the normal fish fare.  So I ordered the Everglades Jambalaya. While it had the description as being made of Chicken, Shrimp, Andouille Sausage In A Savory Creole Sauce with Dirty Rice.  I had once question and the name Everglades just screamed it must have alligator in it.  So I asked and was told no alligator.  But then they say alligator tastes like chicken.  hmm.  I enjoyed the savory stew, was told it was hot and spicy, It was not spicy.  No big deal they do have to warn everyone these days for everything.  It was a darn good jambalaya.Mrs. K. had fish and chips.  What can I say they were fish and chips.  Almost  ubiquitous in SW Florida.  They tasted just like any fish and chips I have eaten.  Mrs. K. professed to fullness and could not possible eat another bite.  That is how I got to taste the fish.  We  were finishing lunch and our excellent server came up and asked if we wanted anything more?  I said no Mrs. said yes.  Soooo she ordered Key Lime pie.I will say this having a taste of the pie it was one of the best Key Lime pies I have ever had.  It was tart but not too tart just perfect flavor.

I made reservations on line relatively easy. This dinner was for my 96 year old mother and my 67th birthday. It was a special evening and I wish to thank you and your staff. Your two hostesses were great and found us a table that was just fine. Our waitress was a very nice young lady. The roasted prime rib and the white fish specials were both quite good, the asparagus was very tasty, so hat's off to the chef, and the salad had fresh and crisp vegetables. The ambiance was pleasant. However, the serrated steak knives were dull and both of us struggled to cut the prime rib. The waitress brought us two other ones, but they were dull too. It was actually easier to tear the meat into bite sizes with our tools.The waitress brought us a nice coconut cake with Happy Birthday written very nicely by her as well.If it weren't for the awkward dealings with trying to cut our meat, it was an enjoyable evening. I guess my only suggestion would be to buy some new knives.Thank you,Case More...

Server was very pleasant but she was obviously overwhelmed. (we did not let that affect her tip however--as a matter of fact, we were quite generous --25%).Servere assumed that all 5 diners were going to be billed on one check. She should have asked about separate checks. Some diners came in after us and had their dinner served before we did. Table was OK but we would have preferred to be near a window--as requested when reservations were made. Pricing was "moderate to expensive" as expected. Chicken Marsala was not up to par. Rest of the party thoroughly enjoyed their choices. More...

Service was okay, with a couple of glitches but nothing catastrophic. We will definitely eat here again. More...

We have eaten at The Captain's Table a few times over the years as a mid-way point to meet family between Naples and Sarasota. The location is very pleasant and the food is fine. My problem is the cleanliness. It is hard to appreciate the lovely view through very dirty windows. The fabric on the chairs is grimy and old. The windowsills are not taken care of often enough The bathroom needs a renovation. The woodwork needs a brightening up. It has the potential to be a much more beautiful place. Needs some TLC and a hygienic going over. More...

Was were a group of four and each had four different lunch items. All of them were excellent. The jambalaya was spiced perfectly. We had reservations for outside, but were discouraged from eating outside because of love bugs. We sat by a window and saw no love bugs outside. This was a bit disappointing. We were in very tight quarters. The server took out order and eventually someone brought out our food. We had needed drinks refilled but she never came back. So service was lacking. But the food was great. A great place to bring out of town guests. More...

Great salad bar and terrific chef prepared entrees. Don't bother asking for a second salad bar for your spouse as the ill-trained young wait staff will fire back at you "that will be another $15.00 And don't bother trying to use a prepaid Visa card as the inexperienced and poorly trained staff will not be able to figure out what to do. Bring cash and you will be happier. The scallops with spices sweet sauce were first class. The view across the marina and bay are worth the visit alone. Our server John was adequate and thoughtful enough to have the chef split the entree for my daughter and husband and serve separate plates. Great job earned him a 30% tip but don't ask him to figure how to use a debit card. More...

Requested, reserved table was not available. We were seated elsewhere & were told we could move when requested shaded table came open. We moved on our own, no server assisted. The wait for our food was ridiculously long. Several requests for soup appetizer not fulfilled. One meal came out after at least 45 mins. It was sent back. Overcooked. Server asked us how the other meals were (?)--we hadn't received them yet! Server seemed surprised! Another several minutes passed. Three entrees arrived as did my soup! Mixed veggies were cool, seafood still over cooked, then excuse made for the long delays: 'the printer used to place order not working'. Oddly, several tables around us didn't seem to have such delays. Extremely disappointed with everything except the view of the boats on the harbor. More...

We had an early 5:00 dinner and the restaurant was not busy. We had a sweet server, but the service was the worst we have had anywhere. Nothing happened without us tracking her down. Do one came to our table for 15 minutes after we sat down. We finally got drinks and said we were ready to order. We had to call her back to the table twice and tell her again before she took our order. Our drinks were never refilled. The food came and was okay, but very average. Our dirty plates were not cleared. We ordered dessert and had to stack our own plates to make room for the dessert. What a disappointment!

We have been to this restaurant several times but this trip with special friends was way below the normal standard and very disappointing. Salad bar was poorly organized. Our server seemed new or easily distracted. Had to ask another server to get our server to bring our wine when we were all half done our meals. There didn't seem to be a manager on site to keep the serving staff organized and things running smoothly. There was one young female who we thought was in charge but she pretty much stood at a table of her friends and talked with them most of the time. I had the lamb which was really good other than two of the larger chops were raw, but was a large serving of chops. The lobster sauce was very bland and no flavour and the asparagus had a different sweet flavor. Like I said initially, this was a very unusually bad experience with this restaurant. We have never had a disappointing experience in the past but will not let this one bad experience keep us away. We will come back again because of our past experiences, but, if we have another experience like this last one, we will not return after that. More...

Let me start by the other 5 times I have been here, all ratings would have been all 5's. To start we were seated as planned. When server took order she indicated it was her first solo night, which was fine and she was very pleasant. All went well until our food was brought out. We had 6 people, and they brought out six dinners. They passed out 4, then took several minutes trying to figure something out. The 4 people started eating, as it was chilly out and they were getting cold. Turned out one dinner was wrong, pork instead of steak, and the other was mixed up the difference fish, and the one was partially eaten by the time they figured it out. They said they would remake and rush the 2 meals out . About the time the others were done, the 2 remakes came out. The steak was suppose to be medium, and was cold red in the center. The fish was way undercooked as well. They recooked another fish and steak. The fish was still not fully cooked in the middle, and steak again cool red center. Now over 2 hours in, and everyone chilled, the person with the steak said forget it. They took the steak and fish off the bill, and offered free desert. Only one person took a desert, and took it to go as we had enough. The manager did come out a few times and apologized, but really should have comped the meal. As I started out, not normal for here, and I really do not blame the waitress. Needed a few more days shadowing. I am more concerned about the food preparation. You don't serve undercooked fish, and should be able to tell extremely rare from medium on steaks. This is not a cheap place and need to have competent cooks. More...

In addition, our server did an excellent job and as a added touch , the manager dropped by to make sure that there were no problems. The only negative was the fact that the on line menus was $5.00 dollars less than the restaurant bill for our two items. While this was a small point, it is worth mentioning as these errors could be easily rectified by the restaurant. Also, when the reservations were made we mentioned that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and our friends Birthday that evening but these were never mentioned by the server nor the manager. There could be a communication problem between Open Table and the restaurant. More...

I was the only person at the table without an order problem. They ran out of what my father ordered. They brought my uncle's appetizer with his meal. My aunt's ribs turned into a steak tip appetizer. They charged us for a soup we didn't order. The next two tables were drunk and excessively loud. More...

Service started off slow, drinks took 20 plus to arrive at table was never asked if anyone want a refresher. Salads bar was a total disappointment, not very well laid out very unorganized. Diner order came out quick and everyone was happy. One of us ordered the ribeye and it was more fat then meat and the scallop diner was on the small size with only 3 scallops. Prices were ok at a average of $26.00 per person everyone had a good time.. More...

Friendly service, however the food was sub par to what an "on the water" restaurant should be and comparable to a chain restaurant. Prices were high compared to the deliverable . The problems is there is very few area restaurants in the area to have this view and setting.The Swordfish was over cooked and chicken marsala sauce was a mushroom beef gravy. Should have probably went with a grouper or snapper. The restaurant does have nice views. Great for a get together and drinks. However food is not worth the money. More...

First time diner here. Great view of the sunset off the water. My first impression as we were seated was that the place needed some updating. The fabric on the chairs at our table was so dirty and threadbare. As I looked at other empty tables around us, I saw other chairs in the same condition. The food was just so-so. Maybe the two meals we ordered just happened to be bland choices. I had the fingerling fish special that had cut-up strawberries and blueberries. The fruit was good but and if I closed my eyes I would have no idea that I was eating fish. VERY mild taste and very little flavor except for the fruit. It was served with fresh grilled asparagus. Unfortunately it was extremely bitter due to being overcooked with the olive oil. Ate a couple of spears but left the rest. Also served with a scoop of mashed potatoes. My husband had the snapper. He said it was just ok... not very flavorful as other places he's had snapper. Meals served with salad bar. That was good. Service was really slow. Nice server but he had his hands full running to different areas to wait on tables. The place was not full by any means. He did ask about why I didn't eat the asparagus as he came over to clear table of our plates. I said it was very bitter and overcooked. He apologized and said he was sorry I didn't like it. We paid our bill and walked to outside deck to watch the sunset which was really beautiful. But would NOT go back for the food. More...

We have eaten there several times & had a good experience. We made reservations & invited friends to order the lobster grilled cheese sandwich based on our previous experience . The food came out - the sandwich bread was burnt for everyone. The meat & cheese(minimal cheese) had congealed & was cold. The french fries were limp & soggy. We think the order must have sat in the kitchen for awhile before being brought out to us. The meal was served by someone from the kitchen & we didn't see our waitress until after we had finished eating what we could of our meals. She never came to check on us. She also failed to bring requested water & soft drink. When she did come to present the bill, she argued with us saying the burnt bread is how they serve it here. More...

The food was decent but took forever to arrive. We had a 5:45pm reservation (and were seated at that time) and it took about 30 minutes to get our drinks and water. The dinner finally arrived some time after 7pm. Our appetizers arrived after our dinner despite a couple of reminders to the waiter. The restaurant was very short staffed and the waiters just could not keep up. Neither the food nor the view was worth the wait. This was our first and last time at the Captain's Table. I would definitely not recommend it to anyone. More...

I had heard great things about this place--unfortunately the area around here does not have many really good restaurants. Also unfortunately, this place was not great. Very expensive for what I had. I started with a shrimp cocktail--defrosted frozen shrimp with zero seasoning and less flavor. For dinner, seafood with "lobster cream" featured more the flavor of pimiento than lobster. Shrimp were overcooked, scallops weren't bad, fish was also overcooked. Salad bar was quite pedestrian. Desert was a frozen, bought-in and vastly oversweet cake offering. All this, with one drink, $60. I was not impressed and won't be back. More...

I asked our waiter for water and he ignored our request and we had flag down the other girl. We will not be coming back to this restaurant and we will pass the word on to others that we know.

A dining companion and I both ordered their spinach salad for lunch, while a third diner ordered a burger. We ordered our salads without gorgonzola and our server appeared to have written that down. We waited about a half hour for our food- during a very slow lunch service- and when it arrived, both salads had gorgonzola on them. Other than that blunder, they looked lovely; they had a bunch of blueberries and strawberries and a heap of salmon or chicken (per salad ordered, of course). We told the person who delivered our food about the error and he swiftly took the salads away and had new ones made. Meanwhile, the other diner's burger was getting cold, our drinks were low, and we hadn't seen our server since we ordered. After about 10 more minutes of waiting, the new salads arrived- but were practically bare. There were about 3 blueberries and a few sliced strawberries on each- as if they rushed to throw together two new salads to replace the ones THEY messed up. Very disappointing. When I finally tasted the salad, the dressing was awful!! It was definitely a bottled salad dressing that I'd purchased once before (and hated). The music was also a little loud and didn't match the tone of the restaurant. Overall, it was a disappointing experience and I don't plan on returning. :( More...
