I miss the place! Got married there when it was Townsends. Ate there every Sunday for brunch. Food was made to perfection. I also went to C & C after it opened. Personally, i think they shouldn't have remodeled parts of the building. Lost some of it's character. The food was a little over priced and wasn't as good as Townsends,.. but again .. that is just my feeling on it. My friends that i took loved it. I hope it does open again .. but more like the original restaurant. Kind of nice to go back in time with real tables ... not booths ..

Can ANYONE TELL ME anything about what happened to this restaurant? DID it reopen, burn down...become a shop, a cash-for-your-car business, a dry-cleaner?? My daughter is going down that way and asked about it. We have nice memories of it when it was simply Townsends. Please post something. Any news. Thanks. JC

I was contacted by the owner of Captain and the cowboy in 2007 to do a paranormal investigation as he believed the place haunted. Myself and another of my team member met with the general manager of the place. Sorry can't remember her name. We did a walk through of the house and the energy radiating from it was amazing. All though we never got the chance to investigate it as the owner changed his mind and didnt want the report to get out of it being haunted, we did research the background and history of the home and The owners. Dr McBride actually made the home into a hospital during the war, he would treat patients there. Mrs McBride flew airplanes in the war and also would do races. She was good friends with Amelia Airhart and often competed in races against her. They actually had a shooting at the home.I believe it was Mrs McBride that fired the shot from the stairs and it hit the right side of the door frame of the front door, i cant remember the details but i believe it was over her affair with another gentleman. Mrs McBride drank alot and died in a nursing home of liver failure due to her drinking and Dr McBride died in the home i believe in the 70's
I wish i had kept the research we did, it was really facinating the info we found on the place even down to the indians that once had a small tribe in the area. Where the home is now use to be the camp where the tribe stayed. There has been reports of seeing an indian run across the field. If i find the research we did i will write more.
