Friendly Helpful Staff

Friendly helpful staff, consistently good food. We come here when we want good fried seafood, I have never tried their grilled or baked dishes. This is my favorite Captain D's, we have tried others and they fall short of this Cpt D's.

Captain D's is a fast food chain, so one really cannot expect much. The scallop special they are running is pathetic. The scallops are the size of a penny. The only thing I like are the oysters. Sunday, three days ago, I ordered shrimp on skewers. These were basically raw. I also got broiled cod which tasted bland. The loaded... More

For year we had not visited this location. I always remember the staff was a bunch of kids and was not the cleanest place as a result but we recently visited and was quite surprised. The menu is more varied from just the deep fried fish and french fries. more vegetables and fish other than deep fat fried. I have... More

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.
