Good for groups or couples

I ate here in June with a group of 10 people at lunch time. The service was fine, the food was good and the portions were excellent. Although crowded, it was not overly noisy nor hectic. Every one in our group tried different lunch items and all remarked how good it was. I wouldn't hesitate to send... read more

First time we ate here. Will definitely not be the last. Clean, friendly, fast and great seafood. We had fried clams, fried fish fried oysters, and fried hush puppies. On top of all of that, the price was very reasonable ($67 for a family of four adult age)....HIGHLY RECOMMEND

You couldn't ask for fresher seafood. The crab cakes were to die for. Also some of the best flounder in town!

The food here was great, but for me, the great service is what stands out the most. The side salads were at our table within a couple minutes of ordering and the waitress did a great job of keeping our drinks full. We had our main courses at our table within 15 minutes of placing our order. There was one... More

We visit Hatteras Island every year and find The Captain's Table a pleasant, reliable dinner stop. Our waitress was superb. Our dinners, broiled bluefish, crabcake & shrimp were excellent. The atmosphere was fine. The prices are reasonable. This is a seafood lover's delight. Will we return - most definitely.

We were driving around trying to find somewhere to find lunch and decided to try this place. The decor is nothing to write home about but the food and service were great. Very kid friendly. We will definitely go back!

We order a variety of menu items including seafood and pasta. Everything was really tasty. Our server and the greeter were both super nice. Portion size was large. Overall a very good meal. The decor and interior could use a little updating.

The food was so good!! The scallops (broiled) were a real favorite among many of us. The pickles veggies are a fresh side that I really loved. The fries are so good too. My husband got fried shrimp and oysters. So wonderful! We may come back though we only have one day left here!

Ate here the 2nd night in Buxton. Short wait for a table (about 5 minutes). Service was very good and the food was excellent. Wife had fried shrimp and I had shrimp broiled in garlic and both were so good. Sides were good and the cole slaw was excellent. Very good restaurant.
