While on business, we strolled the Wharf to find a decent sea food restaurant at a decent price range. We found Capurro's. At first we though it was a dive, but later enjoyed the tacky, whimsical decor inside. They had all kinds of old fishermen's gear from nets, to diver's helmets. The place is bustling almost like a market, but... More

It used to be that you could never go wrong with any choice of the menu, everything USED to be GREAT! The owner Paul used to walked around from table to table making sure everything was good. Until management changed! The sons of a legacy took over, they remodel the place. Which did not need to and changed the menu... More

Nice atmosphere and food was ok. We had the calamari, a pasta dish and the clams/mussels/shrimp in the fish broth. The pasta and calamari were ok and the fish broth dish was tasty. The calamari could have used some dipping sauce. Overall it was ok food and the server was friendly and fast.

I was not pleased on my return visit from a year ago. I went there on a crab dinner for two from Groupon. The value was $150+ for only $50. Well, I'm glad I only paid what I did. The waiter took the coupon and our drink order without much of a greeting or welcome. I chased him down to... More

Had a Groupon for $59.00 for two whole roasted crabs, soup or salad, bread and dessert of the day. Service was below average he just came by once or twice. Acted like he was a little put out. We ordered extra appetizers. The shrimp cocktail and truffle oil fries. The shrimp cocktail was a joke. Five small shrimp spread out... More

We have had very good experience with dinners for lunch (over 8) groups of various ages and food tastes. We had our Idaho family down over Thanksgiving and had a marvelous early dinner. Burgers to crabs!

A girlfriend and I stopped by for some seafood. We had a great waiter Robert who was attentive and helpful. We ordered the crab for 2. It was just crab and sourdough bread but oh so good. It was very messy but oh so worth it. I even soaked up all the juice with the bread!!

I was look for a beer and sometime quick to eat. As I walked by a notice the bartender chatting up a elderly woman in a wheel chair.
