The food was mediocre, the service felt very rushed, there was a wedding going on there at the time so maybe that contributed to the lack of food quality and service.
It was unfortunate as we took special friends there and it was a complete disappointment.

The views over the harbor were so enjoyable adding to a fantastic dining experience. Had the lobster roll with fries and salad which was so good. They did not skimp on the lobster and the roll was soft as butter. The grouper (lightly breaded and covered with a lemon sauce) as a main meal was accompanied with string beans and mashed potatoes... food was perfection!

Captain Bills seems to have lost a step since pre-pandemic days. The food was decent, just not as tasty or sizeable as we remembered it. The seafood was fresh though and prepared in the typical ways. If you manage your expectations, you won’t be disappointed. Service was friendly but just a little harried and not as attentive as usual. It is moderately loud inside. It will likely be awhile before we return.

We received food before our drinks
Bus boys did not work the room
Had to beg for water
Table was left unattended and a mess for 20 minutes after apps. 1 hour before dinner order was taken.
No regular cappuccino decaf only.
Came out watered down. I have it all the time. Forgot to bring us dessert menu. We love the place go often. Just a bad night all around. Our 1 st time guest enjoyed the food. Probably would have had 2 or 3 more rounds of drinks but not able to order. Kinda of gave up. We were their from 7-10 at table.

Capt Bills has always been a favorite of ours. Being on the water and having delicious food made our decision easy on where to go for my husbands birthday. Unfortunately it didn’t work out that way yesterday. The waitress was very slow and had the appetizer brought out after waiting do long for it and then a minute later our main courses were being delivered. My wine glass was dirty, my husband ordered a second drink and waited 20 minutes for it. It was not an enjoyable time. My surf and turf that I ordered plain was swimming in grease. I had to remove it from the plate and use a clean side plate. Ugh!! Sorry captain bills but it wasn’t good and I’m now inclined to go elsewhere.

Mediocre, small portions of food. Decent ambiance, but prices were high for portion size BEWARE: on-line menu understates prices considerably - at least $10 more on your bill per person. Wine pour low.
