A Captian D's clone with extras

We were attracted to this place mostly because it's not a national chain. The decor is dated and the seats in our booth were in we bad shape. Table and chairs would be the way to go. Service was OK and our food came out of the kitchen FAST! Wife ordered coconut shrimps and I had the shrimp and... read more

The seafood was good, fresh, hot. The sides, not so much. Reheated sides with foil over them. Mushy, soggy Lima beans, overly sweet, mashed sweet potatoes (they were cold) but the coleslaw was very good! Good hush puppies, good coconut shrimp, popcorn (peanut) shrimp was fresh, not greasy. Stuffed crab shells very good. Had gumbo as an app but it... More

Lunched with another couple, they loved their food, ours was just fair except for the New Eng clam chowder which was excellent. My salmon was very dry, almost like baked-frozen-then microwaved. Spouses coconut shrimp was overcooked. Friends had other fish entrees which they really liked. We will go back but avoid the salmon and coconut shrimp. Hint, get there before... More

My husband especially loves this restaurant as he likes the fried oysters There is always enough food to share. I especially like the catfish grilled. Love their vegetables, especially the okra and tomatoes, something I would never cook at home. This is a restaurant that has been around for a long time in Leesburg and is consistently good.

Fried, fried and more fried frozen what-they-call seafood. You can order non-fried, but I think the cook in the greasy white apron washes the breading off the frozen stuff and sticks in a broiler. Not a place for gluten conscious eaters. Lots of sweet iced tea (nothing wrong with that) in big glasses. Wine is available (cheap). Some non-native senior... More

I had not been here in 6-8 months. Glad I went back. Had a shrimp dinner at a good price. The staff was attentive and seemed glad to see me (party of one). I will be back to try another combination.

We went thinking fish and chips.Coming from New England, We're used to good seafood. Afraid it didn't meet up to what we had heard. Plenty of food but greasy.Place was not crowded.

Really love this place. Huge portions of fried fish with a choice of tilapia, pollack or flounder. You can get it grilled or blackened but portions are a little smaller. If you go for the AUCE (everyday for the fish) then no problem. Also all the sides are AUCE too! Mondays you can get AUCE shrimp ($14.99). A variety menu... More

the food is great; although majority is fried, can order some things on the menu grilled or blackened. The fried green tomoatoes are wonderful. Large portions could very well share or have leftovers. The Gumbo is terrific.!!!!!!

The all you can eat lunch is great. Can't wait to go back. It's a long drive for us but worth the trip
