Decided on a whim to stop in for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it! Priced just right and the seafood was fresh! We ordered all types of food without disappointment! Great views of the water and the staff was willing to do anything to make us warm with the heat lamps while the sun was heading down on the deck! Thumbs... More

Our meals and drinks were delicious...the staff was attentive and knowledgeable. It was winter so dining space was limited to indoors. The lobster in each meal was cooked to the perfect consistency. looking forward to going back!

Fantastic oysters coupled with superb Bloody Mary's makes a Sunday afternoon drift pleasantly by ... just like the Hudson River which is right past the deck at Captain Jake's. The food here is delightful and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming - with a very friendly crew. After at least 10 meals in the past few years, I can say... More

Our party of three arrived around 3 pm on Sunday. We had a wonderful table with a view of the river. The waiter took our drink order and than our dinner selections. One person ordered the crabmeat wrap and two of us had the twin lobster rolls. The food,was delicious and our plates were left clean. Would,definitely return !

11 of us had lunch the day after a family party. We had a wide variety of things and everyone was happy. Waitress was efficient and very pleasant. Can't beat the waterfront location, even in November! Prices were very reasonable. We live in the area and will return.

Well once again the twin lobster rolls were to die for. We started with the crab cakes they were also very good but split the lobster rolls with sweet potato fries and a wasabi sauce for dipping.

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...
