We have been home from our 3+ week trip touring western New York State for two weeks now and are still talking about the deep fried prawns and scallops and haddock we had for dinner here. We were staying at an airport hotel and had returned our car so we decided to go to Captain's Cove because it was an easy walk. As others have said, the place is nothing special to look at. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. We shared a Captain's Plate and thank goodness we did..there is no way either of us could have finished one each. The prawns were hands down the best deep fried prawns I've ever had. The scallops were also perfect and we love haddock and it was done perfectly too. We both wish this restaurant was in our area so we could go back and back and back....

From the outside it doesn't look like much but the food is pretty darn good. I go there for their barbecue fish tacos. You will not find a place in the area where you will get more food for a great price. 3 tacos and they are extremely good with all the side salads...

I would highly recommend

It's definitely not something we would have driven past & said "oh, let's stop there!" We found the reviews on here though & decided to give it a try. It was AMAZING! Clean, friendly, FRESH, cooked just right! Will come again!

Doesn't look like much from the outside, in fact, we drove right by. Glad we stopped in though! Excellent service, food, and price. We will return! Good choice of seafood and not all greasy. Very well prepared. Also, the coleslaw is AMAZING! 4 stars because the bathrooms needed a good cleaning.

I have been here several times since it has reopened and have not been disappointed once. Twice dined in and one take out. Dining in was pleasant and the staff were nice. But the seafood platter was wonderful. The jumbo shrimp were so lightly breaded, not over the top like cheap seafood places. Very tastey!! The steamed clams were done perfectly. The side salads were good. The cole slaw needs a little work. Might I suggest some celery seed? Take our food was of the same quality. Lightly breaded and done perfectly and was waiting when we got there to pick it up. If you want good, fresh seafood you expect to pay a little more.
