There's a place in town where a lobster caught yesterday in Maine, can be on your plate today. Where a comedian you saw on Comedy Central will appear onstage before you. Where an executive chef will prepare the fish you caught for your dinner and you can have the photos of your big catch displayed for all to see.
The place is the new Captain Brien's Seafood & Raw Bar in the Marco Walk shopping Plaza. Outside the restaurant, tables are scattered throughout the courtyard, and business bustles out through the large open window to the bar. You may get a sudden craving for oysters as you walk through the door and pass the icy raw bar filled with many types of fresh seafood. Some go for dinner, while others choose to just hang out at the bar with the extremely talented bartenders. Wherever you sit, the atmosphere will charm you. The walls are covered with weathered wood and nautical items and antiques. The decor, combined with the openness of the place, makes you feel that if you look out the bar window, you'll see sailboats swaying in the harbor.
And there is always live entertainment. Musicians and stand-up comedians occupy the stage during most of Captain Brien's open hours, the music rolls most nights till 2AM. For those hoping for a quieter conversation, you can always grab a drink and head back out to the courtyard.
