My husband and I went here for lunch yesterday. To be honest, we passed it up the day before because it was so small and it just didn't appeal to us based on looks. Well we sure we're wrong to pass it up. We went somewhere else that was just so so. When we gave this place a chance, we... More

We were in Chincoteague after Labor Day in the middle of the week to get away from the crowds. On night we decided to order take out and sit on our balcony and enjoy the sunset. So we called Captain Zachs to place our order. We would like the oyster Po Boy-we're out of oysters. We would like the crab... More

Really freaking good! We had the crab cake sandwiches and crab chowder for dinner. Everything was delicious. While you wait there is corn hole and other games to play, great atmosphere. The soup was so good we went back the next day for lunch.

There were a lot of choices on the menu and we enjoyed the crab balls. But, the only place to sit is outside and the bugs were annoying. We missed hearing our name called when our food was ready so have someone from your party sit by the front door until your name is called.

We had lunch @ Capt. Zack's and loved it! I had their fried oyster sandwich, and my husband had a sandwich of sushi-grade seared tuna. Both were fresh, perfectly prepared, and ample portions. There's no sit-down service, but there are plenty of umbrella shaded tables outdoors. The staff pointed us in the direction of a store that could sell us... More

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
