We like to order the house special and their Saturday shrimp and grits did not disappoint us at all. Not asking ahead of time about the portions served, we discovered when our meals arrived that one would have been sufficient for the two of us. That was fine as the waitress gladly helped us wrap up half of each serving... More

We had been staying more toward the ferry and wanted a good "local spot" without having to deal with a summer hustle/crowd and Captns was it! I felt like I was right at home with the great staff! The tuna melt was awesome and the cold beers were delish! It was a good find that we somewhat stumbled upon but... More

We had raw oysters and fried oysters, both excellent. Liked the selection of beer on tap. Friendly staff, sports bar feel inside with the t.v.'s. I could do without that, but I know most folks like that.

Ate at the bar - buffalo shrimp was outstanding! Had another fresh seafood appetizer on special that day that was also tasty. Burgers were good too - a bit overcooked but that's so typical today. Service was good, bartender was friendly. Interesting beer selection on tap - Pabst Blue Ribbon? Old school. House wine is Jagermeister - joke sign but... More

What can I say? Average. I ordered a buffalo chicken wrap and got a BBQ wrap. My son ordered a clam strip basket and got an oyster basket. Our table enjoyed the hush puppies and fried okra. Never had either of them before, so unique to us. Kids fried shrimp wasn't coated and fried... No coating, which was fine, but... More

Well, maybe it was what I ordered but the fried shrimp tasted like it came from a freezer bag. The fries are battered, not my cup of tea. The hush puppies were really good, however.

This is where we've gone 3 years in a row for dinner on our first night in Frisco after a 2-day drive. Seafood is basic, generous and done well. Service is friendly and fast. We like it.
