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.

We love Captain Bill's. My only request is to have a chicken dish option for landlubbers. I do not eat seafood and only choice is steak or sandwiches. Thank you!

Service was excellent.
The Filet was a little over cooked for medium rare.
The stuffed flounder was delicious.

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.

We had a birthday dinner out on the deck at Capt. Bills. The food was delicious as always. The service was a little slow which was no fault of the staff. It's hard to get waitstaff right now and 3 servers were serving many tables. They did the best they could under the circumstances. This is one of our favorite restaurants due to the consistently great food and a kind and wonderful staff. It was a perfect night to eat outdoors and we had a beautiful view.

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.
