Not even the best food in Jesup

This is our least favorite place to eat in Jesup. They do have a varied menu, but it is all tasteless. The fried foods are greasy with no flavor. They do have an excellent salad bar, but that is all that is commendable about it. It is a shame that we live this close to the coast and can't get... read more

Captain Joes used to be my favorite go to place for seafood but this recent trip has me looking for another place to eat. Just last year it was so good that I raved about it but this recent trip made me ashamed of my review. Let me explain. My husband, my sister, and I went in at 4:00 p.m.... More

Visited Labor Day not very many people in restaurant! Wait staff was very friendly and took order promptly! Salad bar was good but Shrimp plate was not! Very few shrimp on plate with COLD hush puppies and onion rings! Don't usually stop here and won't again!

We were greeted by a friendly hostess right away. Our server was just as friendly and very attentive throughout the meal. She didn't miss a beat of anything even though she had many other tables to handle. We ordered the seafood platter for two. It does serve all three of us with leftovers. The salad bar is always nice with... More

The wait staff is mediocre; the food is too; the salad bar is not good either. Wish there were a place in Jesup to find good seafood...if there is, this ain't it.

I come from a family who takes pride in family dinners and always reward the waiter/waitress well for good services. As a tourist my family was very excited about eating at a sea food restaurant near the beach expecting good fresh sea food "as advertised" but later I I find out that shrimp cocktail appetizer was frozen shrimp that you...

We stopped by for lunch while returning from a cruise in Port Canaveral. We were immediately impressed by the overall cleanliness of the restaurant. The restrooms were spotless! I don't usually rave about that but when everything in there is shiny and clean you don't have to inspect the kitchen area to see it, you already know it's the way... More

Stopped at Captain Joe's on our way home from Florida. Had noticed the crowded parking lot on a previous trip, and decided to stop by and try it out. Pleasantly surprised at the nice clean restaurant and immaculate restrooms. Nice salad bar with many choices - included in the meal. Had the clam strips, which were typical, nothing out of... More
