If you don't mind take out, this is a great choice. NOTE: Get it fresh and eat it immediately. They put the food in Styrofoam containers, which causes condensation, which causes the food to get soggy in a short amount of time.

I really wanted to like this place. It is "carry out" seafood and has a really neat area outside to eat, complete with outdoor games. We were here in the off season and it was not busy. We ordered fish tacos and the fish was so overcooked that it was almost gone from the breading shell that remained. We also... More

We have eaten at this place many times during our visits. This year was simply not one that should earn a good recommendation. We fully understand that it is after the "prime season" and we understood the note on the door on Monday saying they would open at 11:30 on Tuesday. The problem was that when we pulled up before...

I'm really sorry we missed you on this trip as I enjoyed talking to you on previous visits. Our posted hours are clearly visible & we are flexible, just as we are all summer, opening early & staying open past closing for late night arrivals. I hope to see you again next year! More

During our day of riding a rented scooter around Chincoteague, we moseyed into Capitan Zacks for a quick lunch. Last summer we when we were here the lines were out the door, so we figured we would check it out. I ordered the Clam Strip Platter, and the wife had the Shrimp Po' Boy with the Boom Boom sauce, both... More

Looking for atmosphere? Looking for the maitre d'? Drink your tea with one pinky raised? Go elsewhere and annoy someone other than the people who like great tasting, well prepared seafood specialties. Truly "no filler" crab cakes made my wife demand our appearance at Capt. Zack's. I was having an "off" day so I helped finish her ample helping of... More

This is a walk up to a counter and order your food to go or to eat outside. The seafood is very fresh and very good! Grouper sandwiches are hard to beat from anywhere. Quality and quantity are very satisfying. Prices are very inexpensive for what you get. The outside eating area has a large connect four game and a... More

Went this year (2014) to pony swim, which was later than usual. Wanted to go to "steamers" but daughter and I thought it was closed. we lost track of time, because last year we went to Captain Zack's and it took so long to get an order of oysters, we really didn't want to return but we did because we...

I'm really sorry you had to wait...Pony Penning is a very busy time on the island for everyone. As you could see our oysters are fresh, in our showcase, brought in each day by local watermen. The size of the oysters vary depending on the oyster ground they have come from. Since they are in the shell, you can usually... More

Fast, delish huge portions left over for lunch the next day. Very friendly staff that answered questions without hesitation. The Crab quesadilla and fish tacos were so good!! Hush puppies were great too!

The coconut shrimp was the best we've had, and the fish-n-chips were decent, though the fries could have been done a little more. Sadly, we should have skipped the crabmeat quesadilla. A little overdone with the cheese. But maybe that's just us.
