This is a small restaurant run by a husband and wife who have the best clam chowder on the peninsula. The crab rolls are excellent!

Bob always has 2 to 3 types of chowders that change daily and we have loved them all!! My fave are the scallop and the smoked salmon. Bob makes them all from scratch daily and it shows. We eat here every day that we are in town. He and his wife are the sweetest and you can tell it's their... More

When captain bob is out of chowder , he is OUT OF CHOWDER and NO SOUP FOR YOU TODAY! He usually sells out fairly quickly. There are few places we like for clam chowder but The Captain is on the good list.

I came back again for the crab roll. Best ones I have had since leaving the east coast. They use the right kind of bun (like you get back east). The last time I was there, they were having the buns sent in from the east coast. Now they make their own and they are just as good. She does... More

Coming from the UK, we know a thing or two about fish and chips! I am usually reluctant to have them abroad simply because it is a speciality here of course. Having read the reviews about this place beforehand decided to give it a go! Well what can I say, the fish and chips served here could certainly compete with... More

Stopped in for a bite . My wife and I split a bowl of chowder and some fish and chips. The fish was flaky and perfect, Not greasy . The breading was very crispy and the chowder was thick and very good.

Thought we'd see if the chowder is the best. I'm sorry to say it is not. And the salad they serve are like the ones you'd get from a vending machine. I was really hoping it would be great, because I love clam chowder. I would not recommend this place.

I'm sorry Glen you didn't enjoy your meal. We make several different chowders maybe one of our others will be more to you liking. We make everything homemade and fresh daily including our salads. Hope you give us another try and thank you for your review. More
