Good time was had by all

Two families on vacation with joining rooms. Very pregnant at the time with 2 little ones in tow. Swim areas were great. Breakfast place upstairs was alright. Alittle more than I wanted to spend. Bowling and arcade was a nice treat. Parking was good and close to our room. Staff was friendly... read 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 .

Captain's Quarters is in a fine location very near to 3 motels. Service is very good and menu choices are great. The Grits and Shrimp entrée is as good as I have ever tasted anywhere. The only negative is that they don't serve draft premium beer. It is a favorite meal stop for us between FL and VA.

This place was very dated and pricier than I was expecting. However, the service was fast and the food was good.

Great service, great seafood, steaks (prime rib sells out nightly), owner makes the Italian sauces daily for great lasagna, chicken parmesan etc. Only open 5-9 -it is packed every night. We love sitting at the small bar/lounge where we meet travelers who make this a permanent stop every year. What I like best: Consistently great food. What I like least:... More

On trips from Florida to DC, we typically stop over in Santee and stay at the Hampton, as we did tonight..Because we had previously eaten at the Captains Quarters across the street and loved it, we rushed to the Hampton to get to the restaurant before it closed at 9...we checked in, raced across the street to CQ, arrived at...

Who would have thought you could find outstanding seafood in Santee, SC? Not me but the Captains Quarters proved me wrong! This restaurant was across the street from my hotel so I walked across the street to give it a try. The place is very well decorated and very well run. My waitress was at my table instantly and told... More

This restaurant was located just across the street from the Hampton Inn and was recommended by the staff. The food was very good and the service was very friendly.
