We enjoy sitting outside and Captain Lou's offers some seating right on the river. Great burgers, sandwiches and apps. Full bar - and music on some nights. It's crazy busy in July and August so you may want to go early to assure the best seating!

A short walk across the river/bridge, Captain Lou's had river ambiance, a bit weathered but fitting the scene. All seats were bar stools and tall tables. Food was good. No fancy here. Fun watching the activity/boats go by on the river.

Just after the draw-bridge and by the Marina. We stopped for lunch - average prices for lunch basket - typical bar and grill foods. I really liked the option they provided - any type of burger - you could substitute with a grilled chicken breast. My husband had a chicken wrap w/ fries and I had a chicken breast on marble bread w/ pepperjack. Both were really good - crisp seasoned fries and a pickle. Fun view of the river - cool to see the draw-bridge in action. I'd recommend Captain Lou's for a casual meal or a few drinks!

We didn't get out by the River but the food was excellent!! We loved eating outside! Just wished we could have had a better view!! Worst thing spider webs under the table kept touching my legs and whole place needed a good cleaning. But overall it was a excellent meal!!

We stopped in for afternoon drinks. The bartender was awesome and she gave us some good tips on which beach to go to and what not to do in town. The food was good, basic bar favor and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was awesome. Just a cool little bar on the harbor. Try to get a seat on the deck but definitely check out the inside. We decided to buy a coozy just to remember the place. Definitely worth a visit!
