Hubby had clam “chowda” and a Po’Boy sandwich that he enjoyed very much. I had the shrimp and lump crab sandwich which was delicious but was more wrap than filling. Saturday on the waterfront was very busy even though it was a very rainy day....More

We were looking for a nice place by the river and Captain Jake’s worked out well. As it was a weekday we found parking just across the street. I had fish/chips - absolutely the biggest piece of cod I’ve ever had - perfectly cooked. It...More
