    My wife and I had a delightful lunch with four of our friends (two other couples) at the Captain's Table on September 23rd, my birthday. The food was extraordinary in it's tastiness and presentation and Stu, our waiter was very accommodating. Also, the portions were satisfying. We thoroughly enjoyed the view of the harbor from inside and look forward to sitting outside during our next visit later in the fall when the weather is cooler.

    We've been eating at the Captain's Table for a number of years and actually quit going for about a year due to inconsistent quality. We took friends there in May and all four of us were pleasantly surprised how good it was. Their escargot is the best ever!! We went again the other night with four people and all were very pleased. The Chilean sea bass was great and the chef was very accommodating with a special request. Weather permitting, dining from the balcony is the best view in Punta Gorda. We found that the off season the food is terrific.

    We were disappointed...we went there for the Friday night seafood buffet that we heard so much about that included crab legs! We drove quit a distance to enjoy this buffet and when we arrived we were told that crab legs are an additional 30.00 for 3 lbs. or 13.00 for 1 lb. what a disappointment! Also the restaurant needs to have some TLC done to it. General maintenance, to keep it looking fresh and kept up was lacking.

    Was suppose to be a nice evening with friends celebrating.Waiter never arrived at our table for at least 20+ min. Bus boy said he was "in the back".One person at our table didn't eat her short ribs.Waiter never offered to replace, she had to ask him to take it away.Hope it was removed from the bill.Wtr glasses were never filled. the waiter then disappeared.I finally had to go up front & ask someone to find him. He gave our host the bill without offering coffee or dessert, We all wanted dessert, especially the woman who hated her meal. Dessert best part of the meal. Our waiter could have been more attentive with so few patrons. Beautiful views are not going to keep people coming back, we can get those somewhere else.

    For $27.95 I expected better. I'm on a low carb diet so I thought this would be a great choice. I was not looking for quantity but quality taste. Both fish selections were dry and bland. Oysters and clams were average and snow crabs difficult to deal with. Oysters on the half shell were descent.

    From the moment i entered the Captain's Table, I was seranaded by a very talented "live" pianist on a baby grande piano in the lobby, greeted by exceptional hostess escorted to a breathtaking view of the harbor at sunset. I was then introduced to the most exceptional server, she was so knowledgable, competent, and gracious, I felt so relaxed that the evening was off to a great start... I ordered one of her suggestions, the presentation was exceptional and seafood was delicious... i'm going to make the Captain's Table a regular visit on my monthly culinary travels !!!!

    Whether you are taking advantage of the Friday Night all you can eat fish buffet or ordering from the menu, The food is delicious. The buffet has a very nice variety, and I especially enjoy the boiled fish and/or salmon which seems to change from week to week. But the unending crab legs and the peel and eat shrimp are my favorites.

    We went on a Monday night during the month of July! We had reservations and were seated outside on the deck. The scenes were beautiful and watching the dolphins while waiting for our meal was great. Staff was courtesy and attentive. Our party ordered the Dry Rub Delmonico Steak, Seafood Conquistador, and the Seafood Pasta Di Mare which were all delicious.

    I was disappointed at first because on the lunch menu I did not see something I was planning to order that is on the dinner menu. We had a great waiter, no problem, I got what I wanted and two others in our party also ordered dishes from the dinner menu. The only negative was the table behind us had a very loud domineering guest who talked the whole time. It was annoying and we should have requested a table change since it was not crowded when we were there. Next time we will.

    My mother and I had dinner here recently. Pros....good food, great view. Enjoyed the calamari. Cons... service was NOT good. We asked for additional time but really did not need THAT much time. Waiter seemed bothered and restaurant was not busy. Enjoyed the beautiful view but did not like table above us "looking down." As mentioned the restaurant was NOT busy and we could have sat at another table near the window. Salad bar did not really fit in with the "upscale" menu. Observed an employee dumping a bag salad of lettuce at the bar into the bowl. Really? Doubtful that we would pick this restaurant again.

    NotComingBack
    Dined on 6/1/2014
    Our experience at The Captain's Table was a dissapointment. We had been there many times in the past with much better results. We went on June 1st for a special occasion, our wedding anniversary. We both ordered the stuffer grouper which we were told by Stu that it was one of their most popular dishes. Both of our grouper meals presented fish that was chewy and without much flavor. Either the fish was old or it was previously frozen and kept for a long time. For $25 a plate the least a high-end restaurant can do is serve "fresh grouper". A great dissapointment and we will probably never go back at those prices. Go if you enjoy old fish.

    Service was excellent. I found the portions to be too large. With a shared appetizer, and skipping the salad bar, we each only ate half of hour meals, and were not in the position to take home the left overs. I had the Queen Prime Rib, and it had quite a bit of fat. It was cooked to perfection however.

    I ordered the sea scallops and they were so tender!! The salad bar was good and was just enough to not ruin your meal. We got mashed potatoes, vegetable and rolls to accompany our meal. Everything was very good and my meal was hot, which means a lot to me!! Great drinks also. We have eaten there before and taken our relatives and have never had a bad meal!! My husband had the Lobster ravioli and he liked it!! My friend had the steak and it was huge and she had to take it home!! Very happy with our service!! The view is fantastic!! Prices are slightly high for steaks so hope they offer some smaller ones at a lower price!! Ori is great!!

    We entered the restaurant around 12:30 and it was occupied with a handful of patrons. We ordered a couple of beers and lunch as follows. Shrimp Teriyake, Mandarin Chicken, and two Black Russian sandwiches. The Black Russian sandwiches where plenty full and well prepared. The Shhrimp Teriyaki was only ok, the flavor to weak and did not taste much like it should be. The Mandarin Chicken salad was served and waiter informed us that there was no Mandarin dressing, did we want an other dressing. In my opinion the waiter should have informed us before we did order the item, may he did not know either. The waiter was professional and tried his best being put on the spot by the chef?

    Had reservations. Got seated, with my mother for mothers day. Sat for 20 minutes no one waited on us. 3 tables came in after us that received service. It was also about 90 degrees in there and I wasn't aware it was a buffet which i wasn't happy about, as I didn't see thatn advertised or mentioned anywhere on their web site, but was fine, if we had been served. Although a 90 degree restaurant and a buffet are never a good combination. Went to the Perfect Caper and had a wonderful meal.

    We had a 2 o'clock reservation. The food wasn't refreshed on the buffet. After trying to make several trips hoping they would put more of the lobster ravioli, salmon and scallops out I finally gave up. Never did get to try them. The prime rib was overcooked, medium at best. Don't know if I would go back for a Mother's day buffet. Very disappointed!

    We met friends from our former gourmet club here for early dinner. Our waitress was knowledgeable and made helpful suggestions. The portions were ample and three of us thoroughly enjoyed our selected meal. I was not crazy about the stuffed grouper - not much flavor. The chocolate dessert was delicious. Because we were seated in a corner with an outstanding view, we were able to chat at a conversational level, which only added to our delightful time together.
