Didn't remotely live up to any of its hype. The food was truly bland and awful & the atmosphere was overwhelmingly depressing. Wanted to give the food back!

We have been to Captain's Cap in Denver NC several times over the years and 5 times in the last 3 months. We like the salad bar which is a nice feature. We always enjoy the seafood with various friends, and the service always great. I have read some critical reviews about the food and service, and I can honestly... More

Typical inland, chain seafood eatery. They have other options on the menu besides fish. Portions were good and food was well prepared. They were busy and drinks were allowed to run out. Seemed like regulars got a little more attention. I understand this, but less chit-chat might have left time for better service to the first time visitor.

My mother and I usually eat at Captain's Cap about every month or two. Great salad bar, I love the broiled scallops, they have a great flavor, and the serving is plentiful. I tried the baby flounder, it had an okay taste, I prefer the baby flounder from Safari Miles right down the road, which is excellent.

The restaurant has plenty of seating area , so even during busy times , we haven't had to wait. The salad bar doesn't have alot of choices, but it has always been fresh and very... More

A decent menu served by friendly staff. Nothing exceptional but generally good, well cooked food. The overall image of this restaurant is that it could do with updating as if feels very plastic. Better booths and tables would help the image of this restaurant. No complaints about the food though.

They have very good seafood and are reasonably priced. The Captain's Cap seafood platter is great but it's more food than I can eat at one setting.

This place tends to be pretty busy during peak hours. I only like shrimp and it was fine. I get the impression that they are taken advantage of by the signs at the salad bar "on trip only" type signs.

Visiting friends in the area, we were looking for a place for dinner, and found Captain's Cap. Pleasantly surprised at the very good dinners we all had for a reasonable price. My shrimp hit the spot, my husband's catfish was succulent (his comment), our friends enjoyed their dinner as well.
