My husband, son and I ate at the Captains Table while staying in Avon last week. We were taking in the area and wanted something to eat. We had passes the Captains Table a couple or times and decided that is where we would eat. Hubby got the Ruben, son had the crab cake basket and I ordered the "captains... More

I've been coming to the Outer Banks since I was a little kid. This restaurant used to be called "Captain Daves" I believe. Back then they had hush puppies too. I was glad some years back to see when the restaurant changed names that they kept the pups and the same recipe. I would walk ten miles over hot sand... More

Visited The Captains Table again this year (today actually) as we have for the last few years. The quality of food is not as good as it has been in the past. Each party at our table made the comment that their food was barely warm, the mashed potatoes had no taste. We tried adding butter (and even though I... More

This has all the features of a classic seafood restaurant, great nautical decor, staff was good, if a little over worked. Good menu. The problem was the food itself. Our Hatteras chowder was tasty but cold, our broiled seafood platter and stuffed flounder was overcooked. Doubt we will be back.

At least the portions were big. But there was absolutely nothing special about the food. We had the - something - fresh caught that day - it was fresh, but tasteless. And the coleslaw was too sweet. The staff was friendly though, and there were two pirates eating there. I don't think they were real pirates (they wore cowboy boots)... More

After paying quite a bit more than we are used to for seafood on island, I was pleasantly surprised to find The Captains Table. They have a wonderful basket special that makes feeding a family with hungry teenagers very doable. It is 9.99 and includes your drink. Fir value, it can't be beat in the area.The food was well done... More

First off. We appreciated the friendly professional service and eagerness to be helpful from all the staff here. The hamburger and seafood sandwich that my hubby and I had were a cut above what you might expect from a diner with such reasonable prices. I was especially impressed by the quality of the roll. I am surprised this restaurant is... More
