    This was the first time we had gone to Captain’s Quarters. The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was definitely lively and energetic, which is not a bad thing if that’s what you’re wanting. Service was as expected as the place was very busy. I would still recommend the restaurant.

    Ok I would give it a 5 star but the one reason we came here was for burger week. they did not have any more burgers. The place was very nice. Excellent service. We did get other food which did not disappoint. It was actually amazing. Crab cakes for starter and our entree included fish tacos and my wife had the fish sandwich. Both were excellent. Excellent prices for excellent quality and portions. We will be returning.

    Food is straight forward and not fancy but exactly what I want at a water front restaurant (the Ohio River) whether you sit inside or outside its a great place and if you just want a great place to drink or dine with a view its hard to beat.

    We ended up leaving after being sat because we waited for 15 minutes until I flagged another server down to ask if she knew who our server was and she told me she did but she was super busy and would be over soon but that she would bring us some waters while we waited and she never came back so after 20 minutes with still no drinks and no sever we left.

    Sadly, the last two visits, we were met with less than friendly folks at the hostess stand. I would say they were short and abrupt to the point of being rude. Oh well. I think I’ve given up on Captains Quarters. The good news is that it’s a great view of the river, the bad news is the food is nothing special.

    It was ok. We enjoyed being on the river. After dinner spent time on the lawn watching the boats. Disappointed in the quality of the food though. I was expecting more and didn’t think it was as good as some family style chain restaurants. Probably won’t go back to eat again.

    An awesome Sunday early evening dinner on the outside deck at CQ! We arrived just after a rain shower so quickly switched our inside reservation to outside, which was efficiently accommodated. Excellent service by both bar staff and waitress. The food was very good and enjoyed the early summer outdoor vibe on the river with music outside and boating activities in view.

    I’ve been here before and been perfectly happy, however we came for a anniversary dinner this experience and I was embarrassed by bringing my guest. Service was long, our food came out cold and the bathrooms had no soap or toilet paper.

    Food was good but service was horrible. We ordered our food and did not get it delivered to our table until 75 minutes later. Restaurant was not all that busy as there were plenty of empty tables. I understand that perhaps they didn’t have enough personnel to keep up. But just an acknowledgment that they’re running behind would have been appreciated. We had to flag down someone numerous times for drink refills. Truly disappointing.
