Captain Bill’s Deck

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.
