Fun stop for lunch

We ate outside, shared a table with folks we didn't know and had a great time. The waitress recommended grouper cheeks. We'll be going back!

Have passed this many times, never ate there.. some people had concerns. Well, the oysters were freshly shucked, tasty with no fishiness. The combo of Snapper, Grouper Cheeks and Shrimp (grilled) was fantastic and Nancy enjoyed her Crab Cakes a lot (even though as the server told us, these are not Maryland crab cakes, they were the best on the...

Captain Eddie's has a fresh fish for purchase. We went to buy shrimp and man it work out. We told them how many people and they gave great estimate on how much we needed and how they recommended to cook them. They even provided us their recommended spices. We BBQed them and they were fantastic. There is nothing like fresh... More

Have been coming here for years with my folks, and enjoy the fresh seafood, just not a fan of eating off of paper and plastic...especially for the price you are paying. I'd suggest they use nicer plates and utensils. The service is always great, and love the outdoor seating during the cooler months. Always a good meal, but can be... More

When I say I have not been back here in over 20 years, that's quite telling. Captain Eddie was still in charge all those years ago. The place has been expanded greatly, and I was happy to see that there are now soft cushions on the benches... big improvement! The place is nicely decorated and they have an outside Tiki... More

Ordered the seafood platter broiled. Crab cake, shrimp and flounder tasteless. Hush puppies raw inside. Side dishes of fried okra and cucumber salad only passable. Won't be back.

We gave them a try tonight and was very disappointed. We started with a pound of steamed shrimp which was bland and tasteless. It came in a boat shaped dish and was not anywhere close to a pound unless they weighed the dish too. The cocktail sauce which was already in a dispenser on the table was so old that... More

Lots of locals and they get the best service. Vintage decor is rustic and the menu is good, however if you are from Chesapeake Bay Area, not the seafood recipes we are used to. Can hold large parties and the new Tiki bar out back is really nice.

Captain Eddie's has been a local favorite for years, but it does not take itself for granted.They offer new items,as well as some favorites that people come here for.Their Black and Blue Tuna is out of this world good! My husband does think their portions have become smaller. My favorite is Rock Shrimp, which is always excellent.You can get the... More
