Yummy takeout

Captain Zack's is a takeout, with picnic tables and Adirondack chairs scattered around so that you don't have to go far. Everything is made to order, and they call your name over a loud speaker when it's ready. We thought it was a great spot for lunch and enjoyed talking to other tourists while... read more

We were so glad yhey opened on Wednesday before Memorial Day. We missed them Monday and Tuesday. Seafood Boats were wonderful as always. Daily special was fish and cips. My husband had Drum. Meal was excellent and priced fairly. Good size portions. Try the blackened any type of fish. Thanks for another great meal.

Crab cakes were very good, as were the hushpuppies. Fries were a bit soggy. Main issue was we ordered off their website menu, five minutes later when we went we were charged a much higher price than their website stated. Was told,

Zack's has been around a long time but we never tried it, even though we have been coming to Chincoteague for many years. On a crab cake binge, and with other places closed on Mondays before the full season gets into the swing of things (we were there in early May), we decided to try. I had the crab cake... More

While traveling back to VA from a wedding in DE, we decided to try a local seafood place. We were not disappointed with Captain Zack's. I have a hard time finding a crab cake that has zero fillers and this place does just that. The entire crab cake was just that...CRAB. It was melt in your mouth amazing! The raw... More

We probably would never have tried Captain Zack's if someone had not recommended it. It's a small, out of the way, sort of shack...but don't be fooled. Those two women in there know how to cook some of the best seafood I have ever tasted. The fries are out of this world and the portions are huge. We had plenty... More

Yes carry-out only, but you can eat on their outside tables in good weather. Outside games to play in their "yard" while waiting for your order - fun. I had the daily special which was blackened scallops quesadilla - filling, tasty, and easy on the wallet. Daily specials make you want to come back again. Easy to find, central location.

Title says it all. Fresh,delicious seafood. Big portions! Best crab salad......$9, would have cost me at least $30 at home. It is take out but they have tables outside you can eat at. So far during vacation have visited it every day!!!

We liked the fast service, the fun activities outside in the eating area. The food was fantastic serving it fried or grilled!

Take out only but that is what we wanted on this occasion. It was recommended to me when I asked where to go for crab...the recommendation was much appreciated as the crabcakes were indeed great.
