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.

Captain D's is a chain/fast food type restaurant, however my fried shrimp was great as well as the cole slaw - They seem to have a wide selection of seafood with different types of fish - They also had fried green tomatoes which I'm sorry I didn't try -
