Clam Shack Of The Week: Captain’s Cove Seaport

Captains Cove

Since 1982, Captain’s Cove Seaport has grown from a vacant lot and a handful of slips to one of Connecticut’s premier tourist attractions and seaport complexes.  Located on Historic Black Rock Harbor, Captain’s Cove is an active maritime and amusement center.

Feel free to dress casually at this 400-seat restaurant.  Open seasonally, May thru September, you can find everything on their menu from different varieties of seafood, to hot dog & hamburgers to chicken sandwiches!  There”s also daily lunch special & soup dujour.  Call the take out number  (203-368-3710) and have a meal ready by the time you arrive!
Dine on a picnic bench on the boardwalk, under a gazebo, out on our upper deck overlooking Historic Black Rock Harbor or inside by their GIANT fish tank!! While inside, please visit the exhibit commemorating the anniversaries of Captain’s Cove Seaport.

Upstairs you will find the main bar stocked with Narragansett 16oz cans and built in the wheelhouse of a nineteenth-century tugboat.  Suspended over the dance floor is a 40’ model of the  RMS Titanic.  The Seaport crew meticulously crafted the model the winter of 1988.  Also, soaring overhead in the lounge is a 2” to 1’ scale of the VS44A “Excalibur”, the Sikorsky flying boat.  While in the lounge, sit back and enjoy the game on the BIG screen TV or one of their many other TV’s!

Lots of entertainment at “The Cove”, but most popular are the Sunday afternoon Bands on the Boardwalk!  Bring the family, have a bite to eat and enjoy the sun and sounds at Captain’s Cove!
