My wife and I stopped in Santee for what was to be an overnight stay before heading home to Florida. We had the pleasure of having dinner here and it was very good.

My husband and I have eaten at Captain's Quarter's many times. For a predominantly seafood restaurant, most menu selections are frozen! Their whole fish selection is fresh, but we haven't tried it. Remember to make a reservation because it's a popular choice in SANTEE...for locals and golfers. Otherwise, there is a long wait!

The place was packed but the service splendid. The shrimp and scallops on the seafood platter were delicious but not the fish. She-crab shop was outstanding. Not sure the meal was worth the hefty bill.

My family and I went to the restaurant here and OMG. They have the best steaks I've tasted in a while. The cod looked really good too. My husband had the mahi mahi. Wow. Glad I'm close to this establishment. I will be going more. There is a motel attached to if you need to stay for the night. I... More

Best in class if you are into deep fried food, the service is outstanding, the food is a 7 out of 10. However it's what for dinner in Santee.

Captain's Quarters is located right of I-95 in Santee South Carolina. They specialize in seafood and it is a good alternative to all of the fast food places along 95. They are a little hard to find but look for the Best Western Motel and they are in their shadow. The dinner options are numerous and the house wines are... More

There are few choices in this area that are not fast food. You can make a reservation. Do so if it is an hour ahead even. We had a 5 and 7 year old with us and used the childrens menu. Meal was plentyful for them but drinks were extra. We both ate off the seafood selections. My platter was... More

When you are traveling this place will keep you from starving. That's about it. Specifically: Pros: it seemed clean. Clientele was genial and comfortable although a distinctly older crowd. Cons: Gordon ordered the oysters on the half shell. They arrived; they were canned oysters which had been scooped out of the jar with a spoon and put on sterilized oyster... More

We were in town this past weekend and decided to try Captain's Quarters as it was near our hotel and the reviews online seemed pretty good. We had 6 in our party and were seated promptly even with out a reservation. Some of us ordered seafood, others ordered steak or prime rib. We were all delighted. It is definitely worth... More
