Restuarant in a Fish Market

We met "friends and regular's" for lunch at Captain Kidd's. The fish market sells fresh seafood from around the world - jumbo shrimp from Mexico, Salmon from Alaska, and lots of fresh fish. After checking out the seafood cases, I decided on six jumbo shrimp from Mexico for my lunch. You pay an... read more

Decided to try this place on our recent trip, I ordered the seafood combination platter, came with two fried shrimp, two scallops and two fried cod, and two sides. The seafood was very good and I had salad and calm chowder for my sides. A salad is a salad but the calm chowder was excellent! It had so many calms... More

We ordered fish tacos, ceviche, and smoked fish salad which were all delicious and served up quickly. We ate outside in the fresh air, and sipped beer from the tap. There is also a wine selection, and maybe next time we'll try that with our fish :)

We stopped there twice on our visit. The service is awful but its always crowded. Everyone raved about the fresh seafood, I paid $44 a lb for the cooked lobster tail which looked great but was tough when I ate it. The crab bouillabaisse was just ok and the crab is not cracked so its a mess to eat. Garlic... More

From the Hush Puppies to the Lobster you can not go wrong. We eat there when we do not want to cook it. When we take it home, ahi, shrimp, scallops, halibut, salmon and lobster we are never disappointed.

I've been going to this place for at least 25 years, and we've never had a problem. The fish is fresh, the service is awesome, it's totally casual, so don't get all dressed up, because you will get dirty, especially if you order crab. The prices are good. There is a wide variety of food. You have a choice of... More

...you pick your fresh seafood from the fresh fish counter and they cook it however you like, or you take it home and cook it yourself. With a real mix of clientele, this is a non pretentious 'local knowledge' kind of place. Not at all flashy or pricey but if you like seafood, you should certaonly give it a go.

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.

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!
