Pros: Professional manager

Cons: Poor service

We arrived here at 8:50 pm on 7/2/10; well after the dinner rush. First we asked to change tables because ours was unsteady. The waitress arrived, never stating her name, took our drink order and returned after about 5 minutes. I had a certificate for a free entree w/the purchase of another which I gave to her when our order was placed. At 9:15 we finally received our soups and although good, my husband's chowder was barely warm but he was too hungry to send it back. Ten minutes later she returned, took our bowls and it was 9:35 before we received our meal at which time I asked for a glass of water. My salad and my husband's seafood platter were average. By this time there was only one other table in our area with patrons. She came back 10 minutes later, apologized for the delay with the water stating she was distracted. Her distraction was a lengthy conversation with the diners at the other table. When I received the bill I noticed I had been overcharged on my soup, not by much but still over the price in the menu. I went to the hostess about this and her response was "There must have been a price increase because the amount in the computer is correct." I pointed out the menu price and she hurried off to find a manager. He arrived, thanked me for pointing the error out to him and refunded my money. Pretty much the only positive aspect to the entire evening. I debated about the tip, knowing that to leave nothing would only give her the impression I was cheap. I left $2.30 which was less than 10% and I usually tip at least 20%. She still probably thought I was cheap and perhaps it should only have been 30 cents to make my point. I have a feeling that because I was not paying for one entree and ordered no alcohol, she decided she wouldn't be getting much of a tip anyway and we weren't worth her time. Too bad there are not negative stars to attach to this review

Called to make reservations and was told they aren't taking them (found out later they were talking them for inside but didn't say that on the phone?!?!?). Arrived at 7 p.m. to catch a sunset on the deck outside. Was told we would have a table in 20 minutes. I've been a waiter. I watched the hostess station. I watched the tables. Nice older woman (perhaps the owner) joked with us on our arrival about how nice it is that people are back out spending money and the restaurant was doing well because they actually had people waiting. I told her I was looking forward to spend my money, but I haven't had the chance yet. Later, I noticed the front end manager telling a hostess (as they were "rewriting" the arrival list on to a new piece of paper) that "Danielle was here before that"... apparently shuffling the order to "accommodate" his memory. A couple that had been waiting before us asked the hostess when they might get a table. The hostess said, "you're the next in line" (I was third on the list). I walked out through the deck and said hi to a group of people just leaving their table. I remember one guy had a Tampa Bay Buccaneer shirt on and I have family down there and we laughed about it (I'm a Wes Welker fan too). When I returned, I saw a different couple sitting at the freshly cleaned table. Not the next in line. Not even anybody that I have seen for the entire time we have been waiting (Perhaps Danielle). Meanwhile the sun keeps setting. So now the other couple got bumped but that meant, SO DID I. After a 1hour 20 minutes they said we were next. Thirty seconds later they told another woman that her table of three was next. If the back end of this establishment is as bad as the front end the food may be hazardous. I wouldn't know because we walked out.

Pros: can't use that word to describe them

Cons: with the way they shuffled my table, I felt "conned"

I stopped in here after work on Friday. Fortunately there was 2 chairs a the outdoor bar still. We didnt have food but everyone around us had food that looked delicious.

the bartender was very friendly. she made some suggestions to us about the infused vodka on the bar and base don her recomendation we tried one of each (pineapple and apple) and they were terrific! definetly strong so I was only able to have one.

This is a great location right on the ocean with a beautiful view of boston. I would certainly go back and eat.

I went to Captain Fishbone restaurant yesterday for the first time and the last time. I am understanding of the fact that my waitress was new, but when we pointed out her mistake and she did nothing to fix her mistake - that did not go over well with me.

When we asked about the current market price of the lobster salad roll, we were told a small was $13.99 and a large was $17.99. Fine, so we ordered the large. When the bill came, we learned we had received the jumbo size and were charged $21.99. The waitress (Sarah) never mentioned a jumbo size. We brought it to Sarah's attention and she stood there and apologized, unwilling to go change her mistake. I pointed out that when I ordered, I said, "large - $17.99" and she acknowledged that. It was only $4 and didn't seem worth arguing over but it just felt like I was being ripped off. Our server should have done the right thing to correct her mistake rather than make me pay for her mistake of informing us incorrectly. That would have been the right thing to do and made me feel better about the place. Now I'll always rememeber this negative experience there at this restaurant.

Besides that mistake, she also did not pay any attention to our drinks and forgot to bring our refills until we asked for them a 3rd or 4th time. One of folks in our group of 6 did not get her water until the very end right before paying the bill. The food itself is not very impressive. It is a casual place with great scenery, but the food is bland with not much flavor or kick.

Oh, and their menu is misleading. It says onion rings come with the baby back ribs, but when my meal came and it wasn't included-- another waitress said it only came with steaks. The ribs and steaks were under the same section and the the onion rings were included for everything in that section.

I will not be returning.
