Tasty seafood, friendly staf

You might miss Captain Zack's because it is a small building and it's just off the main road, but it is easy to find. The food was tasty and the staff was friendly. They do a good job with seafood!

Ordered an assortment of food for our family of 5 - everyone enjoyed it - nice to share out on the picnic tables. Had some sodas left over in the cooler from the beach - a reasonable meal for the family - not buggy (our rental house was swarmed with mosquitoes - but here was fine)

Got takeout, and it was very good! Everything was fresh and tasty. Nice to have everything made and put in containers so all we had to do was go home and enjoy! Will definitely go back!

This was our first time there. Who knew you would be greeted like you are a regular customer. The food was very well prepared and the offerings are impressive and reasonable. We liked it so much after we stopped to try them out for lunch that we returned for dinner fare. Every entree was cooked the way we liked it... More

Captain Zack's has the best and freshest seafood at very reasonable prices. It is a take out restaurant only, but prepared to wait - the food is that good. Portions are large. They have daily specials. The cream of crab soup is to die for. We always get all of our lunches and dinners there whenever we visit Chincoteague Island.

I make it a point to stop here once (if not more) each time I visit Chincoteague. At busy times the wait can be long but it is worth it. I recommend the chicken strips, soft shell crab, among other sandwhiches. The fries are average at best (to me). Smells are free! Would recommend any time.

We heard about Captain Zack's from some other tourists we met and decided to stop in for lunch. I asked at the counter if the shrimp basket was larger shrimp. They said "no" but would gladly make it that way for me. It was fabulous! My friend had the oyster basket he enjoyed that as well.

Had the Scallop special it was amazing! and cheap. Also had fried clams and oysters. They have a fresh seafood counter you can pick whatever you want and they cook it for you, nothing fancy you order and wait outside and they call out your name when its ready.
