Ever since the management change, Captain Hardy's has been elevating the greasy spoon game. It's my go-to place for a nice warm breakfast, the ramen is going to get me through the winter, and the cheesecake is delicious. The fish and chips are top notch;...More

The Fire Chefs have recently bought the Old Captain Hardy's Restaurant and have completely renovated the interior. We wanted the interior of the restaurant to reflect our commitment of bring about great colorful fusion cuisine heavily borrowing on France and Japan's attention to the culinary arts. Our two chefs bake fresh pastries daily. They buy their prized fish off the Haste (a local fisherman) and prepare a light yet crunchy fish batter. We produce fresh homemade soups and chowders, sushi, breads, muffins, cookies, pasta, Prime Rib Hamburgers, Caprese Salatas, Calamari with homemade tsaziki. We are new and we offer refined gourmet food and affordable family pricing. Try us.. We believe you will enjoy your experience!
