If you're looking for decent fried seafood, water views, and cold beer (without kids running around), Captain's Cove can't be beat on a Sunday afternoon (I'm not big on crowds, so Sunday lunch is my go-to time). I like to sit upstairs - there's a...More

Very touristy, greesy fried foods. If you have nothing else to and want to be by the water it’s just passable. Go to anyone of the local beaches and bring lunch instead.

A highlight in the Brigeport area. Much better than Port Jeff. Plenty to see in the stores. Nice sun deck and restaurant. Plenty of free parking.

A great place for the whole family during spring, summer and early fall. Food although mostly fried. Lots of little shops along the water, ice cream, etc. Every Sunday there are live bands outside on the wood deck. Tons of dancers come back every year....More

Yet another gem in Bridgeport. Right on the water with vibrant bar life combined with a seafood fare and through in a band on a sunny day, can't think of a better location if your not a beach person

1.5 miles. If driving, easiest way is enter 95S, & go 1 exit (X26). I believe there are small road signs there. (A lot of turns thru a "weird" area)
