Captain Johns serves fabulous seafood at a great price! It is fresh and delicious! During our week at Pawleys, we ate here four times! That's how good it is!!! Only once did we have to wait @ 30 minutes for a table. This is a gem in Pawleys! I am sure they will have to expand when the word gets... More

If you want excellent seafood prepared by the owner, which includes fresh Haddock from New England and Lobster Rolls, then have lunch or dinner here! It is a small inconspicuous restaurant in a strip shopping center on Highway 17 near the South Litchfield beach entrance. Go before 9:00 pm for dinner. Captain John closes at 9:00 pm. Order "take out"... More

We have eaten here twice and it's the last time. The food is so so quality, however It's not a lot of food and it's not great. For the price it should be great tasting and a larger portion. Service is just ok.

I really enjoyed eating at this restaurant; the atmosphere was welcoming and our server was kind. I ordered the haddock, which came with a side of rice and French fries (side options vary, but these were my choices!). I was thrilled that when my plate arrived at the table, the portion sizes were perfect. I got to sample the other... More

Cousin wanted me to try this place.. Have to say that they have a wonderful chicken sandwich. It was one of the best I have had in a long time. The service was great and they were very fast and attentive. I can say that I will be back here when I am in town.

We were searching for a seafood restaurant close to our condo and this fit the bill. We were seated quickly and the server was attentive enough but not overly friendly. We all had seafood combinations that were good, but not great. The prices were also just ok.

I am always looking for the best fish sandwich and heard I could get one here. I had blackened and my husband had his fried. I believe it was haddock. The service was good but the sandwich was just ok. The bun was cold and kinda hard. The fish was good but the bun killed it. Good coleslaw. I would... More

Very good sea food at good price. Nothing fancy, but nice atmosphere. Nice place to go after a day on the beach.

Stopped by here on our way to Georgetown. Great food and atmosphere. My wife had the Maine Lobster Roll which was excellent. I had the Lump Crab Cake Sandwich which was also excellent. Everything was great all the way down to the tomato slice served with my sandwich. It was very fresh and delicious. Will definitely be back on future... More
