Nice Staff & Food. Been noticing a woman sitting at the beginning of the bar. Very unfriendly and I happened to mention it to another patronage. They said she works there and eats there "every" night with her husband. They mentioned she's the owners friend and that a lot of people complain about how "unfriendly" she is. I've also noticed...

My wife and I went without reservations on a Tuesday night and were seated right away on the enclosed porch outside. We had streamed littleneck clams and mussels fra diavlo. The clams were too salty for our taste, but not so much that we sent them back. The mussels were really good and the portion was big. We split a... More

We ate outside in a enclosed area with a heater and good view of the river. The menu was ample with many choices and the service and food was good.

Captain Jake's has a great location on the Newburgh waterfront and serves good food. The menu has a wide selection of choices and portions are good sized. Value is also good as prices are reasonable. The service was spotty but they were busy and looked understaffed. Recommended for lunch and dinner.

Friendly, welcoming staff. Sat outside on this beautiful afternoon.New England Chowder was really good.Burger was top notch and cooked as asked (a rarity in many places). Cod sandwich and Crab Cake wrap were generous, fresh and tasty.

I had read favorable reviews of this restaurant and decided to try it for our 41st anniversary. A small restaurant but nicely decorated. The real business on a busy Saturday night was at the bar. You get your choice of indoor or outdoor seating. We chose indoor as the weather was a bit chilly and cloudy but we still had... More

Absolutely delicious portobello mushroom sandwich and sweet potato fries. We had an issue with the salad, which they resolved professionally and then swiftly comped. Excellent place! We'll definitely be back the next time we visit!

Captain Jake's is an attractive restaurant in a beautiful setting. The room is pleasant and relaxing, and the view of the river could not possibly get any better. The dining area isn't very large, but the outside seating (in good weather, obviously) probably doubles their capacity. The bar area runs the entire length of the restaurant. We started with soup....

We were out on a Sat early evening & decided to walk the river since it had cooled down from the humid days & nights we had been having. We've been to almost every place on the riverfront & have our favorites. We decided to stop at Captain Jake's just for a drink & to sit & relax.Bartender was great.... More

This is my favorite restaurant on the Hudson River. It has everything you could want. Excellent food, excellent view, excellent servers/hosts/bartenders. The atmosphere here is very welcoming & comfortable. I highly recommend Captain Jake's.
