Captain Bills Waterfront Restaurant features award winning seafood in a rustic, casual and fun waterfront atmosphere. Recently voted “Best Seafood Restaurant” in the Best of Madison poll, Captain Bills diners rave about the clam chowder, crab cakes and coconut shrimp. Take in the lake view while keeping warm by our fire, enjoy a signature cocktail or craft tap beer, a mound of shrimp, oysters, fresh fish dishes, excellently grilled steaks, lobster or our Friday night fish fry.

Taste why The Food Network featured Captain Bills as one of the best casual restaurants in America.

Christmas Eve Day Gift Certificate Sales


Twas the day before Christmas
When all through Captain Bill’s
Nobody was stirring, not even our chefs.

The silverware was polished and in napkins rolled tight
The stemware washed and shined up bright
All is ready for service this Thursday night.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But Robert and Kris all decked out with holiday cheer
With Gift Certificates and City Tins available here
When you need those last minute gifts, you need not fear,
The gift of good taste is available on this one day of the year.

But dash away, dash away, dash away today
Before time simply slips away.

From Captain Bill’s, we want to say,
Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Day!
