Was a little disappointed that the prefix menu started on the Sunday. But as usual the food was delicious and the staff very pleasant.

Stopped in and was very impressed. Did not expect the upscale establishment that my wife had described from years ago when she lived on the island. Service was excellent as was the food. I was a little nervous about market price raw clams and oysters but at 2$ each it did not break the bank and well under what I... More

We go to Captain Bill's for important occasions: anniversaries, birthdays, important life milestones. Every single thing I ate there was always great. I've never heard a negative from someone that went here - EVER. Really nice view of the water and boats docked. While some pricey restaurants also skimp on the quantity, not so here. You will be full. Great... More

The food was delicious and priced fairly. I will definitely be returning for another meal at Captain Bill's especially because of the beautiful layout of the dining room. I highly... More

My friend and I were so excited to come here for a Sunday lunch. Unfortunately what we got instead was the rudest hostess I have EVER encountered. We walked up to the stand and before we could even try to speak to this rude woman in glasses, we were greeted with, "We just finished brunch. We don't even have a... More
