While staying at the hotel next door to this restaurant, we walked to dinner July 16, 2014, after a recommendation by the hotel desk clerk and a check of reviews for it. Our server, Mark, was excellent and knew the menu well. We arrived about 6:00 pm and were seated immediately. The restaurant was not very busy but became busier... More

We had a very nice meal with another couple. I had the stuffed Grouper with crab. Excellent. My wife had the crab cakes very good but a little dry, but they were all crab and everything was very fresh. The Calamari was ok, very tender but plain breaded with no seasonings-I have had much better. It is a causal dining... More

Loved everything about. Our waitress was the greatest, so upbeat and cheerful. The food was epic, the lasagna tasted homemade.

I went pretty simple, salt and pepper catfish with a sweet potato. Fried fish is great when done right and this was.

Nice restaurant. Good (not great) oysters. OK salad. Fish looked tired. Other diners confirmed that. Bread substandard. Nice waiter. Good malbec at a reasonable price. Thanks to the waiter for steering us clear of other wines in its favor. In Santee, if you are there on a Monday when the local Thai is closed, this might be the right place.... More

On the way home from FL, spent the night in the hotel next door and being a seafood freak, I didn't really need anyone's recommendation to try this place. The full parking lot says a bundle, too. I was having a hard time deciding but had it narrowed to scallops or oysters. Our server, Sadie said "just try the oysters".... More

We eat here every time we stay at the Best Western Plus Santee Inn. It's very convenient and the food and the service are always excellent. My wife always orders the salt & pepper catfish and she has never been disappointed. I simply ordered their 1/2 lb. sirloin burger because they always cook it to perfection & it's fresh. They...

Living here in South Carolina we get to eat a lot of fresh seafood being a little over an hour from the coast. Captain's Quarters puts many of the seafood restaurants in Charleston or on the Grand Strand to shame. The food was outstanding, the wait staff is friendly and even offered fishing tips for the nearby lake. Our waiter... More

Very friendly staff. Good food. Salt and Pepper catfish is recommended. Good kids menu. Be careful if they sit you next to the bar, they allow smoking in there.
