We were told about this place and decided to try it. I'm sad to say, Darn it why did we wait so long. The place was clean and bright. We ordered sangria to start. Spot on. Next was the main dish and the special for the crab legs a pound and a half. It came with a side. We ordered... More

My husband loved this place. My parents and I thought it was fair to good the first time we went. The 2nd time we went (on Thursday's Lobester Night), the food was not good. Tasteless and rubbery. Could have been that they are busier on that night, but very dissatisfied.

Had the two pound lobster special with shrimp, octopus, clams. It was great! My wife had the skirt steak over pasta and that too was wonderful. Nice atmosphere and reasonably priced.

This is a casual family restaurant with medium prices. Seafood is fresh and meats are delicious. They have two separate areas for dinning and you don't need reservations. Grouper nuggets are really good.

El Capitan is a family restaurant offering good sea food especially the lobster that is apparently brought in on Thursday fresh. The fish is good,basically prepared as you desire. Some of the puertorrican side dishes are well prepared especially the arañitas and the mofongo. It's safe with security. The atmosphere is basic and clean. It's a place full of locals.
