Great seafood

Hit this place up, returning from the beach. Welcoming great staff serving up delicious seafood. The fish n chips got to be the best buy on the East coast. Great selection of oysters and other appetizers. Great views from the bar. Good selection of beers. Really pleasant and great experience.

We only ended up here because the line to get into the Matunuck Oyster Bar was backed up onto the road. Waitress acted like she was doing us a favor to serve us. She must have forgotten where her tips come from. Food was average, menu uninspired, View is pretty. Certainly not my first choice.Get to the Matunuck Oyster Bar... More

We have eaten at Cap'n Jack's before, and the meals were fine However, this place has gone downhill. First, we wait 15 minutes to get our waitress' attention, and that only happened after we asked 3 different employees if we could order our drinks. So we did not start off well. It is a bad sign when you get a... More

I experienced a wonderful time at Cap'n Jack's during my vacation in South Kingstown, RI. It was my son's birthday and we walked across the street from our wonderful rental cottage and were able to munch on cupcakes to celebrate! On another evening we dined in and had delicious steamers and lobster rolls! Both were exceptional. The atmosphere was casual... More

We went here on a late July evening. Just caught the end of the dinner rush. Service was good and attentive. Food was average, probably a bit less. Calamari appetizer had soggy batter coating, but was otherwise ok. My scrod was very overcooked, dry and seemed to have sat for awhile before it was served. Portion size was just average.

Decent seafood and a moderate price. The fried scallops were exceptional. So light;y battered that one would hardly know they were fried. Tender and sweet.

Went there for lunch as a party of three. We sat outdoors although there is plenty of indoor seating. Food is of a very good quality and there is plenty of it. I had the fish and chips and it was a generous portion of white fish that was lightly battered and golden brown, in other words it was not... More

Great place to be. Crowded as anywhere at the beach. Staff extremely attentive and friendly, food had very food quality and taste. Prices are reasonable. More in a style of a diner than a restaurant. Perfect for a quick dinner after a day at the beach.

The lobster bisque was excellent. The fried fish was soggy. The beer selection was better than most. The wait was long but the restaurant was half empty. As you can see, it was a mixed bag. Honestly, I felt the prices were a bit high, and I didn't feel I got my money's worth as a result. But some of... More
