“Good Chowder/ nice view”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We stopped in for a quick snack and both had a cup of clam chowder. The chowder was quite good and the service was very friendly and efficient. Nice view from the rear of the restaurant.

“Local favorite and Travelers' find”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

My wife and I ate lunch at Cappy's on our way back through Camden. After a trip of eating gourmet meals there and in other towns, we simply wanted a burger for the road. We were surprised that the menu had many interesting choices at very reasonable prices; I enjoyed steamed clams and onion rings. The clams were tender, clean and cooked to perfection in a garlic, salt water broth and served with garlic toast. The rings which we shared were also cooked well, not greasy and not salty. They used vidalia or some other sweet onion. My wife had a salad that looked delicious. Her main comment is "why do they give us so much food?"

A great take.

“Great pie and nice view”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We went to Cappy's early in the afternoon when it was over 85 degrees, so we were looking for air conditioning. We found that and a good view of the harbor. However, service was very slow and began with two young women standing at the hostess stand ignoring us. When we asked for help one said the hostess would be with us soon. At least several minutes passed before she was. The waitstaff seems to work as a team in some cases, but overall service was choppy and unsatisfactory. Its location has probably kept it going.

“Great chowder”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Cappys was our go to lunch place while in Camden. The seafood chowder was delicious. The broth was very well done and it was chocked full of lobster, mussels, clams, and fish. A large bowl was about 8.00. Highly recommend.
