Captain’s Grille 2015 Lunch Review

October 2015 Trip (Review 3)

To my surprise, without an ADR we found that we had to wait quite awhile for a table. Even more surprising was that when we were finally seated, the restaurant was nearly empty at 12:30. I guess the reason for our long wait was something other than there weren’t any open tables. Possibly short on waitstaff or kitchen staff??? :confused3 It was not a big deal for us though since we had no set plans for the afternoon.

So anyway, here are photos of the Captain’s Grille lunch menu as of October 31, 2015…

I was tempted to try the clam chowder but decided that I should skip the appetizers since we would be eating a lot at the Swan & Dolphin Classic that evening. So we each just ordered a sandwich, with my choice being the…

The french fries were fine but I was disappointed with the amount of lobster in my sandwich. For $18.99 I was expecting a little more than a few small pieces of lobster, a couple of giant lettuce leaves, and a hot dog size bun. While the lobster itself tasted fine, there just wasn’t enough of it, IMO. :sad2:

Shaved Beef Sandwich with Roasted Shallot Mayonnaise, Pickled Peppers and Onions, Beef Jus Reduction, Vermont Cheddar and Watercress served with choice of Vegetable Orzo Salad or French Fries

This sandwich cost $5.00 less than mine but was much more substantial. The beef was good quality and flavorful…and there was plenty of it. My husband enjoyed both the sandwich and the orzo salad that he chose for his side.

We passed on dessert here and even forgot to take a photo of their dessert menu. I had had thoughts of sharing some ice cream at Beaches & Cream next door at the Beach Club, but my DH said he was too full and I couldn’t manage it on my own.

Though I had been to Captain’s Grille four times now for breakfast, this was my first experience with lunch there. I wouldn’t be opposed to trying it again for lunch sometime, but I’d rather first give dinner a try…and will definitely return there for the breakfast buffet. :thumbsup2
