Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Very crowded due to 4th holiday-large group nearby- waiter was very pleasant -computers not working so we had a wait for the bill. Part of the problem was the limited menu for the holiday. Always enjoyed our previous visits."

  • "We had a wonderful experience there with a beautiful sunset and a storm rolling in. We started outside and then moved under the overhang and then finally were driven in by the storm but it was a wonderful evening. Great food and our server was very attentive."

  • "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."

  • "We had the best time ever. We had john as our server and we had the buffet which is to die for, but John was on top of everything. He is a big man with a big heart. He made our night perfect. The food speaks for itself. 6 stars if that was possible."

  • "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!!"

  • "The view was quite lovely. The food was not plated well, not tasting well, and our server seemed to forget about us in the corner of the restaurant. I wouldn't eat their "buffet" if you paid me and the best part of the evening was the drinks!"

  • "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."

  • "I was excited to find a restaurant in Punta Gorda as we live in Naples and our friends live in Sarasota - this restaurant at the Fisherman's Village is nearly halfway between our homes. We had a lovely table - gorgeous view of the harbor and we enjoyed the sunset after dinner. The food was well-prepared and fresh - the bourbon salmon was divine as was the pork and the assorted seafood platter. We were there on a Friday evening and the main special is an "All you can eat" seafood buffet which seemed quite popular. Salads are served via the salad bar (including a well prepared Caesar Salad). The only real drawback was the service - indifferent at best. We saw our server infrequently. Otherwise, this would be a 4-star review."

  • "We chose the outdoor seating on a beautiful afternoon for an 80th birthday celebration. Perfect day with great food and a super efficient friendly waitress. I had to change the number of guests a few times and each time I did I was impressed with how comfortable the hostess made me feel about the changes. Everyone had a wonderful time. Each meal was delicious and we all agreed we would be back for the outdoor dining We will use the Captains Table for upcoming group events as we feel it has the best food and ambience in town!"

  • "Visited on a Friday night, a group of six. We were very pleased with the menu, although chicken selections were extremely limited for our non-fish-eating friend. This was seafood buffet night and one in our party chose that offering, and loved the chowder - excellent. The rest of The buffet was disappointing, although there was a very nice selection of dishes. The oysters and shrimp were good. The scallops and crab a bit disappointing - salty and tasteless. The meals from the menu were better, overall, in fact they were delightful. Beautiful scallops, nicely seared, moist duck, tender and tasty salmon, a beautiful NY strip. The service was fRiendly and competent, just very slow. Our dinner, without dessert or coffee took 2.5 hours. "

It was a beautiful night, we were seated outside with a gorgeous view-relaxing, catching up with our friends, and watching the boats come in and out of the wharf. The food was delicious as usual, and we had made reservations via Open Table online, so there was no waiting time. Thanks to Captain's Table for exquisite service, menu, and ambiance. And to Open Table for the ease of making a reservation last minute without a problem."

  • "This restaurant was recommended by a close friend who is a restaurant critic and member of a gourmet club in The Villages. We were so glad we chose it. We met a friend there who drove up from Naples. The restaurant, along with the shopping experience was way beyond our expectations. We especially appreciated the nice and quiet background music so we could talk without having to talk too loud to each other. It was perfect. Our friend chose the coconut shrimp appetizer and I chose the salmon salad. My husband had the chicken caesar salad. Everything was excellent. We definitely would return there again."
