We shared the captains feast with a twice baked potato and green beans. The food was ok but I was not overly impressed with the taste of the food. The waitstaff seemed impatient and ready for us to leave as soon as we finished eating. Again food was good but nothing other than that.

Hello, We had Shrimp (overdone), Scallops (underdone), Broiled Oysters (tasted like Boiled Oysters), Fish that was dry and the Hush Puppies were cold and tasteless. The portions were very small.

We went there with 10 friends. Those who ordered something fried were satisfied with their meal. The broiled crowd however were less than happy. I shared some of my fried shrimp with the person next to me and she loved it. Her broiled scallops on the other hand looked like they only had a passing acquaintance with the oven. Almost... More

This is another place in Buxton, Steve and I look forward to... More

Their food is good, prices o.k., service good too. My husband and daughter had seafood. And enjoyed it. I got the chicken strips that were quite dried out and tasteless. Was disappointed. Enjoyed the fries and slaw though. Nice place, too.

Friendly staff, good value. Fresh catch was as fresh as it gets. Crab bisque was excellent. Look forward to coming back again soon.

When we vacation on the Outer Banks we always go to the Captains Table for dinner a couple of times that week. Several years it was named The Tides. The original owner sold and it became The Captains Table. We ate there at every trip and when it changed to the new business we could hardly tell any difference. The... More

Four of us had lunch at the Captains Table yesterday for the first time. We were seated promptly and all of the waitstaff was very friendly and accommodating. I had a Chicken Caesar Salad, which was huge with a generous portion of chicken on top. Others had the clam chowder (which they said was delicious,) a buffalo chicken wrap, a... More
