A little local hangout filled with beach goers from all over the country. Service is great .On a busy weekend night it can get really loud so if the noise bothers you a week night would be better. However, for the chowder I'd sit through a storm. It is delicious..Captain Curts has won awards up and down the East Coast... More

Our first visit to Captain Curt's was fantastic. All four of us ordered some derivation of their fish basket and the fish tasted fresh and not the least bit fishy. Despite the crowds we knew we'd be back to this Siesta Key institution. On our next visit I thought I already knew what was good and so I quickly ordered... More

As our friends stepped off the stage from karaoke they stepped onto a glass that another patron had placed on the floor. The glass broke and lodged in our friend's foot cutting her deeply and even lacerating a tendon. The bar staff handed her a bunch of napkins and REFUSED to fill out an incident report. We argued with them... More

Siesta Key is a busy place. What do you do for a meal for a group of people with no reservations who want solid food, while the younger children might be restless. Go to Captain Curt's. On the plus side - chowder and sandwiches are excellent, portions are generous, kids are given something to color, the plate for their fries... More

Went toCaptain Curt's for dinner as it was right across the road from our accommodation. Didn't look fabulous but was one of the best dining experiences of our vacation. There is a fun relaxed vibe and it was very family friendly, our server Christian was ver polite attentive and efficient. The food was excellent and the portions HUGE. They provide... More

The food is good and plenty of it. This is a great place for families with little kids. From the picnic table decor to the paper towels within reach your kids will love it. Make sure to get a cup of award winning chowder!

they were the winner of a clam chowder contest. It was really good. Other than that, the food was OK...It is really more of a tourist spot.

We stayed just one block away so we ate at Capt. Curt twice and attempted a third but as the other times we ate there they come off as if they really don't need the business. One of those places like "we know every one wants to eat here" attitudes. So basically they don't try very hard to make your... More

We always eat here when in Siesta Key. It's near the marina & is a great stop after a day on the water. Our group loves the corn fritter appetizer as well as the fried shrimp- they are huge! Just a great dive for casual eating.
