We found this restaurant jewel via trip advisor and it was excellent! My husband had a quesadilla filled with steak, Mom had fried oysters with "the best fries" and I had the shrimp bacon with their special cabbage salad and huge baked potato. Staff was very friendly and aimed to please.

We had dinner at Cap'n Roy's and were surprised by the super friendly (and hard working!) staff. The place is simple (ie: not a beachfront nor fine dining) but clean and extremely welcoming.

We hadn't been to Cap'n Roys so we thought we'd drop in for lunch. I had the fried shrimp basket with fries and coleslaw (Fumi salad) which is awesome. The whole meal was. I don't normally like fries, but these were the best I've had, ever, anywhere. Also ordered tacos. Thumbs up there as well as the Mexican plate. The... More
