Cod and Capers Seafood is well known among restaurateurs in Palm Beach County who buy high- quality fresh fish and other sea delights from them such as stone crab and lobster. Their fleet of delivery trucks has been a familiar sight for years. They’ve also developed a loyal retail following among area residents.
Now they’re getting their feet wet with their own restaurant biz, a good thing for those who are looking for a very casual setting to eat some of the best seafood around; the café dishes it up as fresh as it gets.
Appetizers include crab-stuffed scallops, spinach-stuffed shrimp and clams Casino. There’s conch chowder on some days or lobster bisque. It’s all good, whether fresh fish sandwiches, lobster rolls, lobster tails, yellow tail snapper, hog snapper or jumbo soft shell crab as main courses The menu changes weekly with availability. Note: it’s almost cheaper to dine here than to buy their fish to bring home to cook.
Besides offering a collection of fresh seafood – local and cold water catch - Cod and Caper sells a range of gourmet sauces and spices, smoked salmon, fresh vegetables and wines. Unusual gifts for any occasion abound.
A patio provides a comfortable Florida atmosphere - not far from the waters of Old Port Cove; a pleasant indoor dining room is available during inclement weather. Cod and Capers can’t be described as inexpensive but they do have deals. Their stone crab dinners on Wednesday nights starting at 5 p.m. (until May 15, when stone crab season ends) are more reasonable than other dining spots. Family-friendly, plenty of parking. Limited evening dining hours.
