Went in there one time, about half an hour before closing. The person behind the counter handed us a menu, then when we tried to order told us "the grill is already closed." Left the restaurant, and never went back.

Cap'n Yoby's is very popular with the locals. I did not grow up and am not sure what all the fuss. I think they have decent fish and chips, but I think it is somewhat overpriced. Not exactly in a user-friendly spot. I prefer Nips...More

Adequate service, reasonably tasty fish, hot fries (chips). The Cap'n has been here for years, and has recently switched from generic whitefish to halibut (supposedly). I haven't noted a significant difference.

A favorite of the family, the fish is very good, however the prices are what you would see in a nicer restaurant. The service and cleanliness is that of a fast food place. Tables are not cleaned between customers. Our fish was noticeably over cooked...More

We all lived the halibut but thought there was way too much breading. The tarter sauce is freshly made and amazing.Their fries were perfect.
