My husband and I have been eating at this facility for years and we LOVE it! The food is consistent and the gumbo is amazing! Fried jalapeños, jalapeño stuffed shrimp and catfish is to die for. I have never had the flounder special but it flies off the shelf when in season! Do yourself a favor, treat yourself to a... More

Different atmosphere than what you are used to. Most like a crowded lunch counter of the 50's NOT gourmet with fancy plates or beautiful displays of international cuisine, But just damn good good for a really good price. Order a dozen oysters and you will always get a plate full, even if it means that you get 15 for the... More

Expect to wait in line at lunch but the seats do turnover quickly. We shared a seafood platter and an order of hush puppies. All good and I look forward to going back.

Almost forgot about Captain Toms until out of town guest want to eat at authentic oyster bar.

This restaurant might be a little out of the ordinary. There are no real tables. Everyone eats as if in a bar. There are no menu's. There is a board on the wall and you pick from there. You dont have a set "server" you get the attention of the guys in the island and ask them for what you... More

We ordered a dozen oysters and dozen boiled shrimp...and some seafood gumbo to eat first. I am an iffy seafood gumbo eater...I don't... More

I am a big fan of this seafood and oyster bar and for many years have eaten there frequently, even though I must drive 45 minutes one way. Once before, the fried catfish had an awful taste, and they said they had gotten some bad fish from a different supplier. This time, a year and a half later, the fish... More

The food at both of the Captain Tom locations is always great! This is very casual dining so don't go there for fine dining. But if you want fresh seafood this is the place. You can watch the cooks batter and fry the catfish, shrimp and oyters. The raw oysters are shucked as you order them. Try a michalad to... More
