This is our new favorite spot for a date night. This is a quiet little out of the way restaurant on the water with absolutely amazing food. The prices are great and the wait staff are fantastic. I highly recommend Captain Bill's for any occasion or just a nice dinner for two.

Always a pleasure but more so this time. After an expensive Christmas Eve dinner at another Bay Shore restaurant where the bread basket was an additional fee and we were not feeling very welcomed, Captain Bill's was friendly and delicious.

Not my first time there but once again a very nice dining experience. Nice pick of cocktails and menu has something for anyone. Nicely decorated for the Christmas season. Our server was well educated on items being served, we had several questions that were answered to our satisfaction.

Went to Captain Bills for the first time and we will be back. We had the Lobster & Shrimp Linguini and the Pan seared swordfish special. Everything was absolutely delicious. The dining room was full so it was a little noisy but other than that, it was a perfect dinner.

A delightful restaurant with a great interior (nice outdoor dining in summer months too) and an expansive menu of delicious items. Service was a little slow, but the place is busy and they often have weddings, so it's understandable. Highly recommended for great seafood dishes!

We specifically decided to go for the eggs Benedict and left disappointed. There was no hollandaise sauce, eggs we overdone and cold. Overall ambiance, service and food was fine.

Came to Long Island with my wife to visit her mom. Took her here for dinner, which was the same restaurant we had her 90th birthday dinner at.
This is the best restaurant on the eastern south shore.
Best seafood around.
Thank You.

The service was horrible . Mary Rose the waitress we had was rude , didn’t smile , no personality . She had the attitude as if she did not want to be there.

She was so bad my husband which he never does asked to speak to the manger on our way out . The manger instead of saying she is sorry we experienced that, I will speak with her. She was making excuses for Mary Roses horrific behavior.

Our server was terrible. She never replied “you are welcome” or uttered a sound for the few times she did actually come to our table. Dropped food, never checked back. Then gave a smile when it was time to pay and leave a tip.
Food was mediocre. The mashed potatoes on my husband’s plate were so salty he couldn’t eat them but our server never came over so he just ate around it. Fish was good. Felt a bit like wedding food.
Drinks were not great. We skipped dessert because we just wanted to leave at that point.
For the bill of $150 incl tip it was not worth it. Shame this place used to be really good

The food was not good. Brunch buffet was not hot and was bland. The place a vibe of a old folks rehab center and the food fit right in as if it was a rehab center. By Coffee was lukewarm, mimosa was a light splash of champagne and weak oj, served with ice cubes. All of the hot buffet wasn’t hot. The omelette station ran out of cheese and my wife’s egg white omelette was not egg white but regular. The servers were attentive and polite.
