So sad :(. We loved this place and we're sorry to see it close for renovations and never reopen. Hopefully, someone will take it over as it is a great spot on the river

Have been to Capt. Butcher's several times. Food was usually very good, and service was hit or miss. However we noticed that the staff and cook were not flexible, nor was the owner. Don't even ask for a fried egg on your burger, no way. Come on! Asked about whether there would ever be a happy hour and was told... More

Capt'n butchers is closed and does not look like they will open soon. Was told that they closed for renovation. Ah in November hmm I don't think so. This was a pretty good waterfront restaurant however pricey.

This was a nice restaurant with a great view of the Indian River Lagoon. Never ate dinner there, but breakfast and lunch were good - a little pricey - but as for most restaurants on the river - you are paying for the atmosphere.

I love Capt Butchers back patio that overlooks the Indian river on their own dock. Inside dining is a different atmosphere with white linen tablecloths & napkins. Many great fresh fish options are offered daily on the menu. A nicer restaurant for a special dinner or for out of town guests.

We love sitting on the outside patio enjoying a draft beer while snacking on the fish dip. The view of the Lagoon is incredible. A nice relaxing place to enjoy the ambience of nature.

My husband I enjoy everything about Captn Butchers from the beautiful waterfront scenery to the amazing food and service. We saw the sign closed for the summer. We are very excited for the re-opening date and to go back to a place we so enjoy. Hurry up October.

The seafood dishes served by Captn Butchers are fresh and delicious! We enjoyed every morsel of our dinner the last time we visited. The setting is so appropriate with the docks right outside bringing in their catches of the day!
