Menu has everything from beef to seafood and pasta. Highly recommend the prime rib and crab-stuffed grouper. A little atmosphere and it would be five stars. Competitively priced with Bonefish Grill or Outback restaurants.

Santee has become a destination instead of a halfway stop for me on my frequent trip to Orlando! CQ is a real, refined restaurant set down in the middle of an I95 interchange with every chain ever devised and a couple of very questionable local enterprises. But CQ IS SUPERB. Try the shrimp and grits. The best I've ever had.... More

We've eaten here a few times. Food is good but an uninspired menu. Also a little pricey. Service is good and staff is friendly.

Was questionable after reading some of the reviews. But our experience was very good. The stuffed grouper excellent, prime rib with shrimp was good, think the prime rib was just a bit over done. Salad with blue cheese crumbles, pecan & balamsic vinegar was very good. Had cheesecake with strawberries for dessert, but had to look really hard to find... More

My husband had the stuffed grouper, kids had frog legs and i had the best catfish i've had in a long time. Oh and u must try the creamy dinner grits, to die for. Wish... More

On our way back north from Florida, we were looking for a place to stop for dinner and found Captains Quarters here on Tripadvisor. We called ahead and made a reservation for the time we expected to arrive, and once we arrived, we were seated immediately. I thoroughly enjoyed my mixed grill of broiled salmon, shrimp and scallops, my husband... More

Bad service, terrible food! Do not waste you time and money. We're told by the woman running the wait list 10 minutes it was forty-five. My ordered a piece of fis it was the thinnest piece of fish I have ever seen and it was overcooked .
