    It was my husbands birthday. He got the seafood platter and the fish was over cooked and the other seafood was so so he said. He was very disappointed. Was going to say something but with the other people at the table, didn’t want to disrupt the evening.

    Server said bartender couldn't make vodka martini so she suggested I order something else. Took 20 minutes for drinks & longer for food, however all of our food was delicious. Ambiance is wonderful. Think next time we'll just do drinks and sit in a couple of the many Adirondack chairs on the hill.

    It was my wife and I first time there and it was our 4th wedding anniversary. The place was very nice. Overall the restaurant was not super busy but it seemed to take a long time to get our drinks we ordered also our appetizer came out really quickly before we got our drinks. It took about 30-45 min to get our food while the dining room seemed to be getting emptier. As far as the food one of the prices of toast that came with the hot brown was burnt. I ordered my streak med and it came out more med well to well done and it didn’t Seem to hv a good sear on the outside as I continued to eat it it seemed to get saltier.

    It was an underwhelming experience. The price did not match the quality of the food served. The best item of the experience was the appetizer. Not sure if the experience was related to the time of day and day of the week. It was overall a disappointing experience.

    Salad’s came too close to the main course. Long delay between appetizers @ salads. Cajun Chicken fettuccine had penne pasta and a yellow sauce that looked like Velveta. Chicken on top was very dry. There were plenty of staff and good service. The food was the drawback.

    This was the first time we had gone to Captain’s Quarters. The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was definitely lively and energetic, which is not a bad thing if that’s what you’re wanting. Service was as expected as the place was very busy. I would still recommend the restaurant.

    Ok I would give it a 5 star but the one reason we came here was for burger week. they did not have any more burgers. The place was very nice. Excellent service. We did get other food which did not disappoint. It was actually amazing. Crab cakes for starter and our entree included fish tacos and my wife had the fish sandwich. Both were excellent. Excellent prices for excellent quality and portions. We will be returning.
