We often stop in Byron, Georgia, on our way to Florida. This year we found a surprise!

We often stop in Byron, Georgia for an overnight on our way to and from Florida. We have often eaten at the Captain Jack's Crab Shack. To our surprise,this restaurant was closed and out of business. Not many restaurants available in Byron for sit down meals that are not fast food. Disappointed.

This is my wife's and my favorite seafood restaurant. About every other month or so, we make the 90 mile or so trip to Byron to eat here. The food and service has always been fantastic. Unfortunately, when we arrived here on 5/22/15, the parking lot was empty and the entrances were blocked off with crime scene tape. Apparently, it... More

This restaurant was recommended by my hotel's desk clerk. Was VERY surprised by the depth of their menu. Amazing selection of seafood dishes in a land locked Georgia location. Basic decor with southern servers. You should make the stop here.

I will admit...the food was good. The fish, scallops, shrimp, and just about every thing was okay in my family's book. Now, my family and I love fish and we had heard great reviews about this place so we decided to try it out. To out dismay, this place is the last place we would want to visit. Every thing... More

This is just the type of place I'm looking for on the road. They serve delicious food made from scratch on the premises. Laid back atmosphere with newsprint for table coverings. Service was fast and friendly. This reminded me of a southern BBQ place but with seafood instead of BBQ. We had the shrimp and grits and crab cakes. The... More

They are cool people that let you write on the tables... They have great sea food, or pizza. The bar is standard, a bit dim, but then I was there late (just before close) I liked it so much I grabbed a gift cirt. to give to a friend, just to have THEM try it out!! Well worth the time.

It was a quaint little place, the food was knock your socks off good, and the bar was well stocked! Very "home style" with a lot of good country love thrown in to make it a very good place....and I LOVE the fact you get to write on the tables! (table cloth is paper)

Visited friends who live in the area and we all decided that Captain Jack's Crab Shack was the place for great seafood. We ordered both the cheese grits and shrimp platter and the fried shrimp basket with cole slaw. The grilled shrimp were large and seasoned to perfection and the fried shrimp were crunchy and flavorful. The sides of French... More

Did our birthday dinner here. Good service for a table of 14. Everyone had something different and enjoyed it. Grouper Poboy was massive, shrimp basket excellent, crab legs good quality and prepared well, blackened grouper tacos very tasty. Good job all around.

Kinda an unusual place. Some of the decor is nice and the rest looks in disrepair. Are they trying to look "old and weathered" like a real crab shack? Not sure. I stopped for a snack and beer since I was not that hungry. Once I finally received the beer that I ordered (took about 10 minutes after sitting down... More
