The Captain never ate this well!

What this place lacks in atmosphere it makes up for in food. Had the crab cakes and was pleasantly surprised with the quality. Friendly staff and my waitress was right on in her recommendation. Reasonably priced, too. They do need Robert Irvine to redesign the place. Very vanilla...

Enroute to Montreal from Florida, Santee S.C. was a good stop-over point, and the Captain's Quarter was recommended for dinner because of its variety of both meat and seafood. The quality of the meat was good; the cooking was not quite as expected. My wife's streak was more rare than medium-rare and my roast beef was even rarer than rare,... More

We visited while traveling to Florida. Arrived about 6:15 and had to wait till7 to be seated but worth the wait. Definitely make a reservation if you know when you will arrive. My wife wanted flounder, but the menu and specials all had it paired with shellfish, which she is allergic too. The waitress told us they could do just... More

Not only did we have a wonderful meal here, but the servers all made us feel like we were family somehow in their positive attitudes and excellent service. The Blufeld Reisling was perfect for my liking. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his Mixed Grill of Seafood and I loved the Salt and Pepper Catfish. We shared a piece of light, tasty... More

We ate dinner here because it was adjacent to our motel. The menu was varied, the food was excellent and the waitress was very efficient and helpful. We made a reservation, but really didn't need one. We'd definitely eat here again.

Since I staying at Best Western right next door, I read the good reviews of this restaurant. The staff was friendly and I was seated right away. Nice cloth tablecloths & napkins. My house salad was fresh and an average size. I ordered the shrimp scampi on angel hair pasta. Since I cook at home a lot, I knew the... More

Great seafood dishes. All entrees enjoyed by all. And the chowder was excellent. The salad had been out a while so it wasn't as fresh as it should have been. Service by Courtney was superb. A good stop.

We had the best fried catfish. It was crunchy on the outside and moist and tender inside. It was very taste without ànything on it. The service was excellent and wonderfully southern.

We note the overwhelming number of 5-star reviews, but we cannot agree with them. Santee has few eating choices, so we were optimistic that this would be a saving grace. It was OK at best. Sorry.
