Great food and great service

I am from the area, however, I live out of town now. Whenever I come into town I try to make it a point to come here to eat. Love the atmosphere, love the salad bar and the food.

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.

We have eaten here a number of times. The seafood is very good. We have never had a bad meal. The prices are very reasonable. 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.
