We had a very nice waitress. Took our order in a timely manner. Coffee was fresh, the hush puppies were an added treat and the crab cake sandwiches were excellent.

We spend two weeks of October in Avon. One of our favorite haunts is The Captain’s Table. They alway have fresh seafood and consistently great service. Can’t miss having a good time.
