They were running a special of scallops fried or broiled $8.99. Ordered it with green beans and slaw over rice pilaf. Well scallops were cooked also burned a bit and were very tiny, the green beans were straight out of the cans and heated up in the microwave. The cole slaw was about the only good part of the meal.... More

Still dependable when I want to think I'm eating healthy fish but want the flavor of the fried food that is bad for me.

We eat at Captain D's at least 2 x a month. We decided to order the 8 piece fish Dinner. We got our Meal Home and they left the Hushpuppies off the order. I like the Captain best because of the Hushpuppies. Was very disappointed. Tried to call to let them know but Phone rang busy for 8 tries. Wanted... More

Love this restaurant! We ate there tonight and the food was excellent. The service was very good. If you want seafood in a casual setting and don't want to spend too much, this is the perfect place for you. It's a great place to sit back and relax. No one pushes you out.

For a fast food fish restaurant, the food was as good as it gets. My order is always correct there and the food is always pretty good.

Slow service. Too many times on the restaurant report. Food on the bar looked like it had been there all day.

If you like seafood and don't want to spend too much money, this place is great. The fish is excellent, the service good and the Hushpuppies are wonderful! Plus, this is a place you can just sit and talk without being rushed. The service is also very good. So, if you feel like having fish, try Captain D's, you won't... More

We eat there all the time. The fish is soooo good! For the past 14 years, it has no changed. The service is good, too. It is inexpensive and great fish, but they also have shrimp, clams and chicken. Their Fried Green Tomatoes are good and as for their, hushpuppies, wonderful. My husband loves them.
