We live close by and eat here a few times a year. The seafood is above average for this area. Hushpuppies are always good. The service and food is sometimes great, other times not so much. It does not seem to be effected by day or time - I've had same experiences with lunch, dinner and weekends... read more

This mostly seafood restaurant is so close to the I40 interstate, exiting from the westbound ramp, you can see it's roof. It is definitely worth stoping for a wonderful fish dinner. The free appetizer of seafood "fritters" are a treat as well. This place respects seniors as well, having a dedicated back page of several choices. All the fish plus... More

My wife and I stayed the night at the Dandridge Exit off I-40 in East Tennessee. It was New Year's Day, so perhaps the restaurant wasn't up to par because of that. We knew, however, we were in trouble when we were seated at the table and whipped margarine instead of sweet, creamy butter was served. The food was exceptionally... More

Generous portions. Fresh and quick. Only wish they had offered dessert as I forgot and would have loved to try the banana cream pie

We had wonderful seafood. More than we could eat. We took our leftovers home and warmed them up in the oven and they were great. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is in the area. This is a must stop whenever you are in the Dandridge TN area.

There aren't many seafood restaurants around this area. This restaurant gives you all the hush puppies you want and their menu is reasonable. Service is fast. Plenty of parking. Unique atmosphere. Log Cabin structure with exposed beams.

Fairly diverse seafood offerings including salmon, crab, shrimp, scallops, clams, oysters and haddock. Also freshwater fish such as tilapia and Alaskan whitefish. Large complimentary serving of hush puppies. I had a stuffed crab and clam strips. Both were good but not exceptional although the serving was very generous. My wife had popcorn shrimp which was very good and oysters which... More

"The Captain's Galley is usually where my folks and I stop to eat on our way back from visiting my sister and her family near Nashville. When we got to the restaurant, we were seated in the very far corner being that we were there on a Sunday (their busiest day). A friend of mine had highly recommended the Alaskan... More

My fish smelled and tasted raw. I love fish. Grilled, blackened, baked or fried but I will not give this place another chance. Good thing I did not pay for it. I was on a date. Felt bad for him because he lived around the area and was told it was good.
