Captain's Tavern Restaurant Review

: Proprietor Bill Bowers and his wife Audrey have operated this landmark for 40 years. It feels a bit burnished, like an old club with nautical clutter, but is fine dining with heavy tables, chairs and napkins. Most any seafood you might imagine is available, all fresh and cooked in innumerable ways. Best bets include conch fritters, pan-seared skate wing with preserved lemon butter and Jamaican-style yellowtail. There’s also a full sushi and sashimi menu. Bowers is famous for offering great wine vintages at very reasonable prices with over 500 selections, mainly from California, Australia and Europe. Prepare to wait as no reservations are accepted.
