The service was horrible . Mary Rose the waitress we had was rude , didn’t smile , no personality . She had the attitude as if she did not want to be there.

She was so bad my husband which he never does asked to speak to the manger on our way out . The manger instead of saying she is sorry we experienced that, I will speak with her. She was making excuses for Mary Roses horrific behavior.

Our server was terrible. She never replied “you are welcome” or uttered a sound for the few times she did actually come to our table. Dropped food, never checked back. Then gave a smile when it was time to pay and leave a tip.
Food was mediocre. The mashed potatoes on my husband’s plate were so salty he couldn’t eat them but our server never came over so he just ate around it. Fish was good. Felt a bit like wedding food.
Drinks were not great. We skipped dessert because we just wanted to leave at that point.
For the bill of $150 incl tip it was not worth it. Shame this place used to be really good

The food was not good. Brunch buffet was not hot and was bland. The place a vibe of a old folks rehab center and the food fit right in as if it was a rehab center. By Coffee was lukewarm, mimosa was a light splash of champagne and weak oj, served with ice cubes. All of the hot buffet wasn’t hot. The omelette station ran out of cheese and my wife’s egg white omelette was not egg white but regular. The servers were attentive and polite.

Captain Bill’s has been a mainstay for us, and it was our first time back since the pandemic. The menu was not their complete menu, but there were varied choices from which to choose. The staff was welcoming and attentive on a busy Monday night. They are one of the few in the area that are open on Mondays. It was a lively anniversary dinner experience.

Valet attendant very nice. Seated right away and given a nice table with view. Disappointed we were not able to sit outside. The buffet isn’t very appealing. Eggs in Eggs Benedict were very undercooked and the shrimp were slightly undercooked. Omelet was good. Desserts also just fair. Surprised we were not offered coffee/tea to go with dessert.

Horseradish encrusted grouper was lacking the horseradish. No flavor. Mashed potatoes tasted like instant out of a box, watery. Small portions. Seafood tower was fair at best, asked for horseradish for cocktail sauce and was told they did not have any? How did they make the grouper? Wedding next door got all the horseradish?

We had a seat outside on the water and it was an exceptionally comfortable event. We were not rushed. The food was excellent and we got to see the rising of a Harvest Moon over the water so the evening was a complete success!

The atmosphere is amazing with a nice view of the communities fleet of boats. The service is always above board. We both has seafood and it was outstanding. Lobster bisque. Broiled seafood platter and linguine with crab, lobster and shrimp.
The server Gail took time to ensure we were enjoying our evening.

It was our 40th Wedding Anniversary. We both had Linguine with Lobster and Shrimp. It was delicious and the portion was large. Our view of the boats was just beautiful. It was a lovely way to celebrate! We never had a bad meal at Captain Bills.

I had the chopped wedge salad to start, while my wife and our friends started with the French Onion Soup. For our Main course, my wife and I had the luncheon Salmon special which was nicely plated. Our friends had the Broiled Fisherman’s Platter. I didn’t see any leftovers on their plates.

Excellent food, very busy on Saturday night, had to wait awhile for food. Entree was served before we finished our appetizer. We have been there many, many times, but never on Saturday night so didn't anticipate the longer wait for food.
Highly recommend this restaurant, but maybe not for a Saturday night in the summer, on the water. Yes we had a reservation. Will definitely be back during the week. Their seafood is excellent! If you are looking for a nice restaurant with table cloths, good food and nice atmosphere this is your place. They don't rush you out, either.
