Very good sea food

This was a different experience ordering and picking up the order. I had crab legs they were perfectly steamed My wife had the sea bass and was happy with it. You actually do not have table service.

We had two great meals at Captain Kidd's. The location is near but not on the beach. You order at the counter, find a seat, and then pick up your food when it's ready (in about 5-10 minutes). The atmosphere is very casual, which is what we were looking for after a long day. There are a variety of seafood... More

The lobster bisque is to die for! I had the lobster roll and the restaurant did not skimp on the lobster. I will definitely come back for the lobster bisque and lobster roll.

Captain Kidds is a great place to get the freshest seafood and they don't disappoint!!! The crabs are fresh and cooked perfectly. The halibut is well seasoned and cooked perfectly!!! The service wasn't as good as some of the other places but the seafoos is excellent!!!

I had a fish taco, not exciting at all. Iyou give your order, take a number. It was very busy and had a big menu. Good for families and people who like fast friend food. I think there may have been better options. A friend had a huge lobster roll that he enjoyed.

Captain Kidd's is perfect if you are staying on Redondo Beach and want to walk to some great, casual seafood. It's self-serve style and seems to entertain as many locals as visitors, especially with the fresh fish market.

I went for the lobster, but they ran out and only had lobster tails left. I ended up eating crab legs. We also ordered other fish dishes and steak. Not too pleased this time.

I'm mixed on my review. I ordered the lobster roll and it was good. Beer was overpriced for the size. Wife had the shrimp bucket. I was underwhelmed with the bucket. For the price, I would have thought you'd get double the shrimp. Also they say it was old bay, but I guess I'm used to east coast old bay... More

This is a follow up to a review of Captain Kid's I did some time ago. We dropped for lunch while riding bikes on the bike path from Santa Monica to Redondo Beach. They actually have a new bike rack and a few new picnic tables on the northwest side of the restaurant outside. I ordered a bowl of seafood... More

This was great, so many options to choose. We chose fish out of the market side and chose our preparation. Can't go wrong with anything here, but don,t miss the fresh fish.
