One of the best spots for a soft shell crab sandwich

When soft shells are in season, don't miss out on Cap'n Chuck A Mucks. They serve up the best soft shells in the region. The crabs often measure 12+ inches across from pincer to pincer. The coating is light and tangy. Very nice. Make sure you try the homemade hush puppies. And on rare... read more

After a half day of hard fishing on the Nansemond River, we visited Captain Chuck A Mucks Ship for grub. Ill-dressed and starving, friendly wait staff greeted us. The menu was excellent and filled with authentic locally sourced food. I ordered the soft shell crab dinner, freshly made coleslaw, and corn and beans. One word-DELICIOUS! I highly recommend this quaint... More

Very laid back local seafood on the creek...Always a great place to get seafood in a "boat" or on a plate. Staff loves engaging with the patrons. Great food and fun either a lunchtime or dinner

The restaurant was clean, the people were friendly, and the service was excellent. On the whole, the food was very good and mostly in the prices were in line with other seafood restaurants in the area. Everything was cooked perfectly. We went on a slow Sunday afternoon and could not have asked for better service. The clam strips were small,... More

The owner kicked us out because we had too many people. We said that we'd have drinks on the deck until tables were ready but he he said that we needed to call ahead for 10 people. We did have a wonderful lunch at Smithfield Landing on the same river.

When your spending $25-$30 on a seafood dinner you would expect all the sides to be included in the price. Not to find out that a salad and Mac n cheese is extra.

Took one of our best friends for his birthday to Captain Chuck A Mucks on Sunday, March 1. We started off with the fried tuna bites for an appetizer. They came out piping hot and there were plenty for the four of us to sample. Two members of the party had the corvina, one had the fried shrimp, and I... More

The quality of the seafood begins with the owners knowledge and ability to buy the freshest seafood available. The chefs turn the seafood into excellent meals you can enjoy while dining on the waterfront. We usually come by boat to enjoy a casual meal. The fish, crab meat, scallops or shrimp are always a great choice.
