  • "The salad bar was pitiful. Overpriced for the quality of food. It's just "ok". The view is great, on the water. This is a tourist trap, and I found out later from locals that this isn't a place they go to dine. I know why."

  • "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."

    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Nice local place for both residents, visitors and tourists. Located in a walking mall - Fisherman's Village. Food is good and the view of the harbor is beautiful. Friday night seafood buffet is good especially if you enjoy snow crab, steamed clams and peel your own shrimp. Good salad bar."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The menu is filled with a variety of choices, steaks, chicken, but interesting seafood combos make decision making a challenge. We liked the bouillabaisse, the cioppino was oily not thick, the Captain's special was very good with a tasty lobster sauce. The surf and turf had a really well prepared lobster tail but the filet was very chewy. All 4 of us had a great time with the highlight being a special wine list of soon to be discontinued wines at discount prices."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "The view was very nice. The restaurant was clean and friendly staff. The only thing was the service was very poor. The food was ok."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We were greeted by the hostess who was unpleasant and the girl seating us was even worse. Walked way ahead of us while we were being seating and we were racing to keep up. Our bad experience started right from the moment we walked in with these two at the front. We waited and waited to be served. Not sure if they were understaffed but obviously nobody knew what they were doing. It ended up being a three hour dining experience. You really need on sight management. I did not see anyone who was in control of the situation. The food is excellent but doubtful we will be back because of the bad service."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "The Sunday Brunch is amazing. The omelet station has all the ingredients needed for an omelet prepared right before your eyes. The salad selections are plentiful and always look fresh and appetizing. The main course options change frequently, the pot roast is delicious. There is a carving station with prime rib and turkey. I felt one area needed improvement and that was the desserts. They were plated, small portions and not very fresh looking. I have dined several times and will be back again."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We were at the Captains Table on Saturday night . It was raining so the crowd was small We had Ari for our waiter. We have had him many times over the years. He is always eager to please us. The prime rib was very tender and the gravy over the meat was very good. We always look forward to coming to the Captains Table for lunch or dinner."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Having reservations, I did not expect to be seated in the bar area for a family with a child. The service was terrible. The waitress had no clue about anything. Steaks that were ordered were over cooked. Expected a lot more for the money and from Captain's Table."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We have been there before, but wanted to try the Seafood Buffet. It was awesome, waitress was friendly and from our area of New York! Atmosphere was very good, able to have a nice conversation and enjoy the meal. Would highly recommend for any occasion."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Since it was raining we ate inside, but the 'all glass' walls/windows made for a good view of the water. My salad was edible but not too good and my husband's fish was not good at all. A little pricey for what we got. Oh well, the location and service made it OK and because we met some friends there, the overall experience was good."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Waiter Ari was outstanding! Remembered what we ordered from previous visit. Food good. could use more menu items like white Mac & cheese. Grilled fish items."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "The view was wonderful. Sunset and all. Food was good, fish a bit dry, but overall a good dining experience. The drinks were a good size."

  • "Had a great meal with three friends. I highly recommend the Thai Calamari. The best I've ever had.."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Less than enthusiastic greeting by hostess, excellent salmon, Captains Choice good but grouper overcooked and vegetables were cold. Server was helpful/good, excellent view of harbor. Eat outside on the deck!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Captain's Table was recommended to us by a friend, and the reviews were positive but sadly our experience was less than satisfactory. The main issue was the food sadly which was pretty bland, and the cooked vegetables were far from cooked, in fact the broccoli was still frozen in the middle for both my and my girlfriend's plates. I ordered the Captain's Plate which had flavorless shrimp, and decent crab meat atop a fillet of again flavorless grouper. In our reservation we asked for a table with a view for the sunset which they delivered, and it was quite nice, the restaurant's one redeeming quality. Would not recommend for the high prices of food, though it has a nice view and good interior."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "I loved almost everything about restaurant. I have been there before and I will go back again. I DID NOT LIKE THE FACT OUR DINNERS CAME JUST AS WE SAT DOWN WITH OUR SALADS! We spoke to the waiter, who was very nice and helpful, by the way and he immediately took food back to kitchen and apologized . When he did bring the food back (after we finished our salads) in a relaxed manner. The food was hot and not overcooked or dried out."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Went for our anniversary dinner, it was very nice. The seafood buffet was great. Nice view over the harbor, great for a sunset dinner."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Food was good (not great for the price). Service was good once someone came over to us which took a little while. Carlos was a pretty attentive waiter, however, was a little sarcastic when my 16 year - old daughter wanted to order something more kid - friendly which made her very uncomfortable. I recommend this restaurant more for the location than anything else."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Good food, good service and the perfect spot to view the sunset. Come on a warm wind free evening and dine on the deck overlooking the harbor."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "We were seated right away- as we came in our table was ready, We had a very nice waiter, he joked with us, and made us feel welcome . He explained about the salad bar and told us the special for the night. Brought our drinks out right away and took our order. We enjoyed the salad bar, crab salad very good. Fish entree was real good and fresh sea bass and other fish grilled just the i like it. Our waiter was Ari, he made us feel comfortable and welcome and made the experience a nice one, and made us want to come back again."

  • "We winter in Nortth Myers and always try to get to the Captain"s table three or four times while here. Have always had great service and great food. The satff have always been very good and very nice."

  • "When a friend wanted to take me to lunch for my birthday she told me to pick the venue. Without hesitation, I recommended Captain's Table. I made reservations on line & requested outside dining. Due to weather conditions at our time of arrival the hostess sat us at a window table inside. We felt like we were outside. It was perfect and we enjoyed watching the beautiful boats go in and out of the marina. Our waiter John is the best ever. He has waited on me in the past and I recommend asking for him upon arrival. He knows the menu items & can recommend something for you if you have never been to this restaurant before. I know that my friend enjoyed the experience, she mentioned that her salmon caesar salad was the best ever."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "We wanted to take advantage of the nice outside view but were told that all outside tables were reserved. This turned out to not be true and there was a whole outside section that was not being used (maybe they had not arranged enough servers). Nonetheless our table was OK and the food was quite good. I would recommend the escargot appetizer - lots of snails and excellent sauce. The seafood with linguine was very good and the giant scallops were just OK ( they had some grit). Overall we would recommend but it is not at the leading edge."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We had an amazing night at the Captain's Table! I turned 80 that day and my 3 daugthers flew down from NY to take me & my sister out for dinner to celebrate. We got there to watch the sunset and the view was beautiful - right on the water. The food was delicious and the service was good. My only complaint was that they seated us inside next to an opened door and although we asked a very nice bus boy to please keep it closed due to the draft, he did, but none of the other waiters did. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great meal and a beautiful view."

  • "Best location in Charlotte Harbor with an excellent salad bar."

  • "We were not Impressed with our server, John, he seemed like a nice guy but not very efficient. We waited 20 mins for cocktails and were more than half done with our entree before our wine was delievered"

  • "Went to this place with a bunch of friends from up north. They loved it. The seafood buffet was excellent and the menu is pretty comprehensive without being overwhelming. The bartender was extremely knowledgeable. We (there were 7 of us) sat down right on time and the waiter was there immediately to take our drink orders. Food was served timely and was delicious as usual. I've been here many times and each time is has always lived up to expectations."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "My party of seven all found their food to be excellent. However, our service was not what we expected from this establishment. Our waiter was so slow in returning to our table and the restaurant was not crazy busy. We were seated in the outdoor dining area on a cool evening but it was comfortable with the heaters on. We waited what seemed like an eternity for our drinks to arrive, our order to be taken, our food to arrive and to get our check. In fact some wanted dessert but we were waiting so long that we just asked for the check, which took forever. Will go back and hope that this service isn't the norm, just the particular waiter."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "THE VIEW WAS VERY NICE OVER THE HARBOR. THE FOOD WAS GOOD ENOUGH BUT NOT EXCELLENT, SOME DINERS THOUGHT THE FOOD COULD HAVE BEEN HOTTER. THE WAITER SEEMED A LITTLE DISINTERESTED AND SPLASHED ONE OF THE GUESTS AS HE TOOK AWAY A GLASS OF ICED TEA."

  • "My husband and I went to Captain's Table for the first time to celebrate our 45th Anniversary. We were seated at a window viewing the Port Charlotte Harbor and Marina. The food was delicious and Neal our waiter was very good. The wine was excellent. We enjoyed our evening and will probably go back on another special event celebration."
