Well my crab legs were wonderful and it didn't break the bank. Everything was delicious, I sampled! The service was friendly and a bit slow but the place was hopping!

Off the beaten path in an older tavern but worth a visit if you enjoy seafood. Not fancy by any means but great seafood at low prices. Oysters, steamers, crab soup and clam chowder were all very good. Service was efficient and friendly.

As someone who is used to Maine clams and mussels, I was pleasantly surprised by Captain Cat's. The clam chowder and steamers were delicious, but the New Zealand Mussels were outstanding. We had two orders of them! Service was great and included a fantastic musician on the piano. Really enjoyed this place as a visitor from Missouri who doesn't get... More

Have not been there for quite some time. Recent return found that I missed it! Had the seafood combo- too bad only available fried (would prefer broiled). The beer was VERY cold and refreshing. Atmosphere like a pub more than a restaurant. Good friendly service. Gets busy- be ready to wait at peak times.

This place serves the best crab legs I've ever had. The meat slides right out of the shell and is incredibly sweet. My husband loves the steamed shrimp which are never mushy. I love the cheesy clams casino! If you are looking for delicious seafood don't let the bar atmosphere keep you away. The food is 5 star.

Our group of 5 had varied entrees and they were all perfect. I especially enjoyed the broiled salmon, the seasoning was perfect.

This local establishment has and excellent following along with excellent always fresh seafood. The restaurant usually features specials of the day that are modestly priced and excellent quality. All of their soups appear to be homemade and delicious. A very good family restaurant, but necessarily a romantic night out. Top quality food.

This is a great place to hang out and have some really good seafood. We sat at the bar and received prompt and courteous service from Joann. My wife had the crab legs and I had a bowl of lobster bisque, which was a meal in itself. The crab was perfectly prepared with all the seasonings available on the side... More
