We arrived at 4:30 on a Sunday for dinner. The place was empty; not a good sign. It did get busy around 6 pm. The restaurant is in an old house which sometimes can be very nice, however this was just ok. The wait staff left much to be desired, very opinionated in my opinion...lol. I don't really care what...

Was not that crowded when we arrived at 7pm on a Friday night but soon the place was filled. Service was slow and we were told that there were only two servers because usually it is a slow time.

Not only did I make a reservation, I still had to wait 25 minutes because the host said there were walk ins before us. After we were seated, we waited at least 10 minutes for our waiter to come to the table. Never introducing himself or welcoming us , he says "do you guys need drinks?" Seriously...who says that! After... More

I took my family to Pt. Plst. Beach to find some good seafood restaurants along the inlet. It was a Sat. night in August. Oh man....so crowded! No where to put our car. Then I remembered Captain Ed's Place. It was just 5 or 6 minutes inland on Arnold Avenue. Same delicious seafood without all the crowds and aggravation. I... More

We've been to Captain Ed's several times and the food is always consistently good. Waitress is always fun! Looking forward to going back there this summer.

We have been to This restaurant quite a few times over the last 10 years. I have always enjoyed eating there but over time certain things seem to crop up in an annoying fashion. First waitresses should not be allowed To smoke when on duty. I don't know where they go to do it but when we were greeted by... More
