We didn't eat the food here but it was plenty busy with locals so I would assume it must be ok. It was clean and friendly staff. They had 16 boxes of pull tabs if you are into that! Not a huge beer selection but it was cold. We will stop again when we have more time and try the... More

This is now Captain's, took my MIL and FIL here for Mother's Day Buffet. Really enjoyed the chicken and Prime Rib. Salad bar was full of choices. Two different choices of potatoes which was nice. We enjoyed our meal very much. Since we live so far away don't get out there for a typical meal, but we were pleased on... More

Typical bar and grill. Has new name- Captains on the lake. Not much changed in bar and dining. Short list of beers and liquors. Has different menu items but nothing special. Shrimp was good and came in hugh portions. Small salad bar but selections were good. Home made soup was good. Wait staff were nice and knew the menu.

My experiences with Torgys prior to the restaurant changing into captains were not impressive. Tried captains and every one really enjoyed their meal. With the new management and new menu I will go again. Every plate coming out of the kitchen looked delicious.

I have eaten here for years great view and food. Dock for boaters to pull up. There's a homemade salad bar, nice drinks, pull tabs and dessert.

If you want to be right next to Lake Minnewaska with a wonderful view - this is the place! They have a cruise boat that tours the lakeshore during the summer months. My husband and I have made this our "home" for years. Give it a try! Stacy Gerdes and Ken Moe are the new owners and are there to... More

We have always enjoyed Torgy's. Good food, reasonably priced. Good place to unwind and have a drink with significant other.

Forget the negative reviews of the past. The menu is new and improved and the views or Lake Minnewaska are always great. Arrive on your boat and enjoy your meal outside in the summer. Be sure to try the turkey, bacon and cheese on raspberry fritter bread.

We went to this place for a light quick lunch on Saturday. We asked for any drink specials and we were told not until happy hour; ok I get that. Then we asked if there were any specials for lunch and were again told no. Since soup was on the menu, I thought a bowl of soup would be a... More

Been going to Torgys for 20+ years. June 1, 2013 was the last time. Horrible chicken-tasted spoiled. Dirty restrooms and salad bar area. Dining room looks like a storage locker. 2 booths were being used as offices. The menu is now very limited and over priced. We will never go there again.
