Simple seafood without the fuss of a restaurant.

Pick your fish and get it prepared just as you like it and want it. We had opah (adults) and our boy you had grilled salmon. Everything was fresh and was yummy. The staffs recommendations were good and the fish market itself seemed clean esp compared to all the other fish places close by.

Captain Kidd's attracts a widely diverse clientele for its consistently good seafood dishes. We've been coming for over twenty years.

Stopped in to check this place out after reading reviews. I was apprehensive but after tasting the fresh steamed crab, I came back the next night for dinner too!

Good was awful; no taste on halibut(and very expensive). Magi-magi sandwich very dry; fish & chips were fair. A very poor dining experience.

I had a very nice dinner on a business trip. I opted to order off the menu versus picking my own seafood to be prepared. The meal started with a large Ceviche which was quite tasty. I also enjoyed Fried Mozzarella Sticks which were served with Ranch Dressing - nothing special. My mail course was 2 Combo Kabobs (Grilled Shrimp,... More

This is a great place to get live seafood to cook at home. Or, they can cook it for you to eat in their dining room or patio. There's nothing better than REAL fish and chips, made with real fish, not that frozen breaded stuff. It's a seafood market so you can get anything fresh (live). It's on the far... More

Fresh food and unique food selection concept. Order from menu or pick your seafood from display case. Very casual. Good beer selections.

Stopped in while on vacation at recommendation if a friend. Had grilled salmon, hush puppies and a local brew. All were outstanding. The place also is a fish market which might account :) for the adjacent "mess hall" fishy smell (almost too strong hence the 4 stars...) but overall great food (note plastic silverware and wooden tables that resemble picnic...

This is an excellent little restaurant. The decor and seating is basic and it is a fish market as well as ordering almost any type of fish that you then find a table to enjoy. The fish was fresh and excellent and I will be back.
