Gator ribs, spiced corn tomato clam chowder and tuna steak are some of the items available on the new menu at Cap’n and the Cowboy restaurant in Port Charlotte, Fla. This summer, the restaurant received a whirlwind makeover from Food Network’s television show, “Restaurant Impossible” with host Robert Irvine.

All it took to refurbish the interior and menu was two days, $10,000 and manpower. Of course, determination, perspiration and inspiration had to be part of the recipe, too. Patrons who have dined at the restaurant prior to the makeover and who have had the opportunity to experience the “new” eatery after Irvine’s visit seem impressed.

Jen Wulf, reporter for The Sun (Port Charlotte), wrote about the restaurant’s $4 cup of spiced corn tomato clam chowder saying it is “fabulous.”

Tune in to Food Network on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at 10 a.m., to catch Restaurant Impossible and see the transformation of Cap’n and the Cowboy. Then, visit  Charlotte Harbor & the Gulf Islands and check out the restaurant for yourself.

  1. Loved Captain and the Cowboy years ago when my Grandparents lived in PC – this was ourfavorite restaurant! So happy to see it on this show – hopefully they can regain the popularity and success that the restaurant had all through the 1990’s – hopefully the menu and service has returned!

  2. Just seen the episode and was very glade to see the couple with there wonderful restaurant.

    I wish the Captain and the Cowboy the best. However, they should immediately take new pictures of restaurant and food to post on Facebook/restaurant websites.

  4. Had dinner at Cap’n and the Cowboy tonight. The new interior looks great. The food was VERY good and reasonably priced and the service was excellent. We had She Crab Bisque, Salad and the Seafood Au Gratin. Yum!

  5. Went by the Cap’n and the Cowboy restaurant this morning and a “For Lease” sign was in the window. Any updates?

  6. Read in the Charlotte Sun that they have gone out of business.

  7. Restaurant impossible fixed them real good !
