Great little gem of a place!

Vendor at Chincoteague Blueberry Festival, we tried the crab cake and alligator at the show, we both got SICK! Plus the guy had horrible people skills! SO, hubby went looking for something we could eat and keep down. Saturday he found this little gem. He got the Fish Tacos and Sunday Crab Cake... read more

The plus side: Capt. Zach will deliver seafood to your hotel room. LOTS of seafood. The portions are huge. The down side: This was probably our least favorite meal that we had on the island. Perhaps the food would've been tastier if we'd had it on site as soon as it was cooked.

We go to a place in Keyport, New Jersey to get our fish take-out. It's got a great reputation because it has great food at a great price. In comparison, Captain Zack's doesn't come close. I ordered a flounder sandwich that turned out to be some un-breaded broiled puckered-up-fish-thing-with-skin-still-on-that-didn't-look-like-flounder between two pieces of bread. Tartar sauce was mayo with a... More

I read the reviews and it looked like Capt Zack's was one id the higher rated seafood places on the island. I went with my family on our first night in Chincoteague. Trying to order it is loud and hot in the small shop. I had to shout at the woman taking my order. No one working there was especially... More

The seafood here is amazing...always fresh and well prepared. The biggest drawback is that there is no inside seating...only a few picnic tables out on the grass...so in the summer's heat..this is a problem. Otherwise, it is a good place to go for great seafood!

Great crab cakes and fish and chips. Loved the covered outdoor seating. Just wish they sold beverages from a cooler and didn't have only a vending machine outside. But that still doesn't take away from their rating! Reasonably priced as well.

I've developed both a gluten and dairy allergy, and they took the time and effort to make sure my meal was safe as well as delicious - thank you!!

Not worth it. There were about 5 people there in the picnic area, 4 waiting, and I walked right up and ordered. The ladies behind the counter were very friendly and I ordered a grilled cod fish and chips, my friend got a soft shelled crab sandwich and they said it would be 40 minutes. We were hungry but figured... More

Love the crab cakes. Great crab soup. Breaded shrimp were tiny, could buy them at Food Lion, or buy at any hole in the wall bar, complete waste of time putting them on the menu.
