“Not that impressed”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

The dishes could be bigger. The lasagna meal didn;t come close to filling our son, good thing our daughter didn't even touch her meal. Dessert counter looked good but expensive.

“Average seafood”
Reviewed 29 December 2011

Average seafood at reasonable prices. Nice view overlooking the marsh. Could stand a remodeling.

“See my review for the Weathervane”
Reviewed 28 September 2011

If you're staying around Matunuk beach, you have 2 options for dinner: Matunuk Oysters or Capn Jacks. Choose the first one. Your first hint should be that there is a line out the door at Matunuk and no wait time at Capn. Its your greasy spoon friendlys type restaurant. The staff was friendly enough, but the food was less than good. If money is tight, you can go here. If you want a good meal, you should not go here.

“Once a Great Restaurant - Not Anymore”
Reviewed 10 September 2011

Haven't been there in 2 years since we moved. Wanted their fish and chips and chowder and clam cakes. Not at all like I remember them. They used to be so good. Now, a poor excuse for a once good restaurant. Portion sizes literally cut in half. The cream chowder was clotted but tasted okay, not a all what I expected for $6 for a bowl of clam chowder....not made fresh that day. Seafood platter was a rip off and it was even served overcooked, warm and not hot. I wanted to try the beautiful pastry that was on display but was afraid it was from the week before. The restaurant up the street a few yards had a parking lot full while Cap'n Jacks only had 2 cars there. That should have told us something right then and there. Do yourself a favor...try the one up the street.

“AVOID AT ANY COST”
Reviewed 10 August 2011

The permeation of rotten fish smell is just the beginning. Waited forever in the rain on a Tuesday. Seating by lobster shaker was hit or miss,depends on who and when. When questioned NASTY. Owner/Manager at register, more than happy to overcharge you for a drink?! and justify POOR service. Too many good places close by, DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME, carryout fair, but OVERPRICED.
