Stumbled upon this place by accident. It's set at the bottom rear of a shopping plaza along the water. Saw a sign for BBQ and figured we'd give it a try. We were the only people besides one other table for lunch time on a summer weekday. Which was perfect for us, since we had some cranky toddlers in tow.... More

I have been going to captain dicks every summer for the past 5 years, found it to be a great place with good food, good people, and a good atmosphere. However this summer it's under new management and what a disappointment that is. The menu selection has dwindled down to almost nothing, there is no seafood choices on the menu... More

We met another couple there hoping to get coffee and desert. No luck they did not have either. We shared a lemonade while the other couple had an excellent Cuban sandwich and crab cakes. They both thought their meals were excellent. Obviously since we had eaten we were disappointed at not being able to join them for desert.

This was my first time visiting the Captain. I had the chopped salad and it was really fresh and tasty. It had nuts and craisins in it which made it all better.

The third place we attempted to get something to quench our thirst and a quick bite. The good thing was the waitress/hostess seated us straight away on the deck. Took our order very quickly and efficiently. Drinks arrived and were very good. We had ordered the, Crazy Bread Sticks, Asian Wings, and Flat Bread pizza. Can't even describe what the... More

Again another mixed review so I went there w/o great expectation but my steam clams were so good ! We had the crab cake too and they were very nice. We ate at the bar because there was no table available and the guy was very nice an promptly served us drinks and food.

We ordered the lobster bisque which tasted like lobster, but I was unable to find any actual pieces of lobster in it. The steamers and Cajun peel your own shrimp were extremely good! However the prime rib was the worst steak I have ever had in my life! It had absolutely no flavor, not even the fat had flavor. It... More

Bf and I went to Captain's Dick after a day at the beach. The place doesn't look very welcoming but the staff was very friendly once we got in. We had the Clam Chowder, which was delicious, flavorful and had whole pieces of crab. Not cheap, but for lake George it was totally worth it.

Our server recommended the Crab, and they did NOT disappoint! The King Crab Legs were perfectly cooked. We also ordered a lobster, and we were VERY pleasantly surprised by the reasonable prices. We will definitely be back!

Totally outside dining. I had the flavor less lobster roll. It was served on a club roll. There was more celery than lobster and a single layer only filling 3/4 of the roll. It needed seasoning. The drinks were served in 8ounce plastic cups filled with ice so you basically get a watered down drink. Pricey too for what you... More
