    Arrived just a few minutes befor our reservation. Our party of three was seated prompting followed soon by our server who introduced himself and asked if we would like drinks other than water. He brought our drinks promptly and asked if we were ready to order or needed more time to decide. We placed our orders (Shrimp tacos, shrimp and grits, and a cheese burger). All of our entrees arrived fairly quickly and were delicious. Our server was very good and periodically checked to see if our dishes met our expectations and to see if we needed anything else. All in all Avery good experience on a lovely fall day on the banks of the Ohio River.

    We had a great time at Captain’s Quarters! We sat inside because the weather was a little cool, but still has a great view of the river. The atmosphere was relaxed, casual. Definitely a great place to gather!

    Nothing can beat dining on the Ohio River in a beautiful lodge. The food was remarkably well-prepared and delicious. The burger was medium rare and juicy. The French fries were hot and crispy. The buffalo chicken quesadilla was hot and and full of tasty chunks of chicken and cheese. The bloody Mary was deliciously spicy. All in all, a very good and reasonable meal!

    The fries thatcame with the fish sandwich were cold. The waiter had to many tables and not o ly took forever to bring us items but forgot things almost every trip. The noise level was almost overwhelming. We could not have a decent conversation without bringing our voices to a yell.. it wouldn't take a whole lot if effort to remedy the problem with some hanging flags or tapestries to absorb the sound and echos.

Onion rings good Service were top notch but i came for the food At 4 pm restaurant was kind of dead maybe with a different order and coming when its more people would have made place more appealing
