Capt. Anderson's Restaurant Restaurant Review

: The Patronis brothers---Jimmy and Johnny---founded this seafood market and restaurant many years ago. It's still a family-run spot with a view of the marina and the docks where just-caught fish and shellfish come ashore. Indoor and outdoor seating, plus a plethora of umbrella drinks, make this a great place to idle away a couple of hours in the summertime. Go for the heads-on shrimp or the slightly more sophisticated Greek-style open-hearth whole fish presentations. Meat-eaters will be pleased with the certified Angus beef grilled churrasco steak with Bermuda onions. The adjacent Waterfront Market offers an abundance of fresh seafood as well as bottled sauces and cookbooks.
