Captains restaurant provided a quiet venue for a group dinner. We ordered garlic bread for entree and various dishes for the main. The fish of the day was a hit, mmmm

The menu looked good and the seafood was just wonderful. Paired with a glass or two of Cloudy Bay. And able to sit outside was an added bonus.
