“Nice scenery - ok food- not fresh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013 via mobile

Its a very nice place with beautiful scenery (see photos) but the food is overpriced and frozen. If you don't mind frozen - pre breaded seafood then this will surely please your palate. Not mine though. Worth the scenery only. I would recommend to experience once for the view :)

“great summer spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

ive been going to captains cove since back when they sold fresh fish. yep, a very long time ago. i even had a little shop there for the season of 2005.

my sister swears this is the best fish and chips outside of england. i love the entertainment, great long bar and drink specials. lol

nothing better than dining on the water on a hot summers day watching boats come in and out whilst the sun sets.

great meet up with friends / coworkers. really great on sundays for families.

we've even had a few company events where we chartered a boat and cruised around for a few hours with food and drinks.

have not gone yet this season but planning to next week!

“GREAT!! FUN!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2012

Make sure you bring the kids and plan to spend some time. The seafood is the best!! Bring your camera to get some great photos around the docks at the whimsical cut outs. After you can't eat another bite, take a stroll down the craft shops and grab a memory to take home until your next visit.
