We were introduced to this family run restaurant several years ago. I have never been a fan of fried fish so was skeptical. What a great surprise! The special seasoning makes all the difference.

Captain Luey's Calabash is worth a visit. Good service and waiting staff, food comes fairly quickly and good size portions. I had the shrimp and Hushpuppies which were mouth watering. I like the cosy atmosphere in this seafood restaurant.

Was hungry for bluegills very good and they actually have real hush puppies lately when you go for seafood you don't get the real ones. Very good service and food.

Love their shrimp and also their pan fish. Their hushpuppies with honey butter are absolutely delicious. If you love seafood you can't go wrong.

Captain Lueys is my favorite seafood restaurant. I always order the all you can eat jumbo salt and pepper shrimp for $16.99 and it is a bargain. They are the best shrimp I have ever had. My wife usually gets the chicken strips. They are juicy and huge. The portions are generous and my daughters love the kids meals with... More

For the AUCE, additional servings were provided without... More
