Take a break from the daily grind and dive into a game of volleyball, a trivia night, or just a few rounds and a hearty meal with friends and family with a visit to Capt’n Bill’s Backyard Grill & Sports Bar. This unique destination that’s appropriate for all ages features an expansive sand volleyball court, plenty of indoor and outdoor porch-style seating, and a menu that’s just casual enough to appeal to all appetites.

The Bar and Grill is almost a secondary attraction to the massive volleyball court and entertainment complex that’s cleverly hidden along Market Street, but hungry patrons will want to take a look at the surprisingly budget-friendly and extensive menu that features a host of southern specialties. Hungry diners can dive into big fish fry platters, “finger fry” platters with yard bird and spuds, and fried seafood combo plates with shrimp, scallops, clam strips and oysters. There’s also a big array of salads, sandwiches and wraps, and even pitas to satisfy a worldlier craving, as well as a nice selection of steamed seafood, including oysters, shrimp and snow crab legs. Boasting southern cuisine, seafood, and everything in between, Capt’n Bill’s Backyard Grill & Sports Bar is a fun hang-out and place to eat, both before and after the volleyball game.
