Good local food

Good seafood choice. A famiily owned restaurant, as if your mother is in the kitchen. Good choice of plates and good execution. The portions are big. Staff very friendly.

Stopped for a break while driving to Savannah and were pleasantly surprised. Very nice server who brought a pitcher of pop to the table when we ordered a glass. Lots of seafood on the menu but opted for salad bar which seemed fresh with ample choices. Shared some delicious grilled shrimp also- only wish we would have had room to... More

The staff is very friendly and welcoming, The decor is nice. There are hardly any places, if any, to eat in Midway, and most of them are closed most of the time. So, Captain Joes is pretty good! Mostly seafood dishes. Food is OK. If you are in Midway, and you're hungry, find Captain Joes and sit a spell.

We frequent Capt Joe's on a regular basis. The soup and salad bar is always a good choice. The shrimp is another good choice.

We stopped at Captain Joe's in Midway, GA on 9/13/14. I had a fish sandwich and iced tea. The sandwich was ok, but the tea...NOT so much!!! My husband had boneless buffalo wings which turned out to be chicken fingers. Since he wasn't sure about the sauce, he ordered it on the side which was a good thing because it... More

We took some customers to lunch and since it was early most of us just got the soup and salad bar. There were several items on the salad bar and two soups to pick from and a couple deserts. All was good, as was the service, and reasonably priced. I'd go back.

CPT Joes is a decent restaurant with great service. We have frequented this restaurant many times over the last two years mostly because it is the best restaurant in Midway. We have found it to be hit or miss...sometimes we go and get a great meal while other times it is just okay. The Soup and salad bar is our... More

Great place for Baby Shrimp! Our waitress, Shellie, suggested the small dinner since it comes with their salad bar. We were very hungry so we ordered the large. The salad bar was amazing. Very fresh with tons of options. The lobster bisque was very good. I ordered fried Mac and Cheese with my dinner. The shrimp was lightly battered and... More
