Terrific seafood right on the town line of Bourne and Wareham on route 6. Very small parking area is the only bad feature of this restaurant but is made up for with the wonderful food and being set on the shore of Buttermilk Bay. Staff and service is great and friendly. Try the Fishermans Platter.

Being lost we stopped at the first convenient place and it happened to be this place on the water. The staff were great, the service was great our first clam chowders and lobster bisque were great. The location and buzzy crowded atmosphere made for a great Massachusetts introduction. Highly recommended as a good bar&food experience.

We were in the mood for oysters which they did not have. The menu looked good but pricey. We sat on the patio, overlooking the bay and had a couple of drinks. The service was very good and the meals we saw the waitress bring out looked appetizing. Not sure if we would be back given the extent of comparable... More

I love the outside deck - great atmoshpere, waitress was great, drinks fabulous... but honeslty the food was hit or miss. I'm a vegan and will often eat dairy because of lack of vegan options. Only option here - salad. Sad that a chef can't put one veggie hot dish on a menu. Hot pastrami looked great, mac n' chz... More

The chicken wings are excellent. You've got to get them naked with hot sauce on the side. They got rid of the rude bartender. Salads are good. Drinks are a better pour than my last review. Great view of Buttermilk Bay. Will go back.

We tried this place based on reviews. The deck was awesome on this beautiful day. The food was OK. We both had broiled Scrod. The portion was huge but the fish was a liltte mealy. Not sure what kind it was. Not cod or haddock. Service left a bit to be desired. We asked what sides came with the fish... More

This was our first time here after meaning to go for sometime. The food was pretty good, worth going again The view on the deck while eating is amazing. We tried the lobster bisque which was good. My broiled haddock was okay, seemed fresh was cooked good, a little boring ( but then broiled is boring, usually). The onion rings... More

Stopped for lunch on a weekday. Ordered onion rings, fish and chips, and a Cape Cod Reuben. Onion rings had a thick batter and tasted as though they were reheated. Batter on the fried fish was thinner, but still bland tasting. Fries were mediocre and Cole slaw could have used more dressing and taste. Go there for a drink and... More

Captain Als has great views, the service is slow, the food is ok. I have come a number of times hoping that the service would get better, but it doesn't. But the relaxed atmosphere for a drink, or to take your boat to still makes it a great find
