Mas, not Ma's

Came to get All You Can Eat Snow Crab Legs. Suffice to say, we had about 10 plates b|w the both of us. The Crab Legs kept on coming, every time hot & fresh. Good service, we had Jason F. who kept our glasses filled. Gator tots were a delicious appetizer. They served free home made potato chips... read more

We came to this place to eat crabs. They usually have an all you can eat promotion, but not on the day we came so we just ordered a dozen of large ones. In addition to the crabs, we ordered soups and a few appetizers, and they were very good, especially fried calamari and gator tots. What was not good... More

The food and service are, at best, average; however, you pay an above average price for the food. I had the swordfish and it was the thickness and texture of a shoe sole. The crabcakes and steaks were not well prepared as the crabcakes were doughy and the steak was grisly even though it was a "filet."

Mother's day lunch and the restaurant is only 25% full. Curious why. Start with, hidden back behind Home depot, behind Famous Dave's BBQ. You would never accidentally drive by. Looks new, as the street signs are still banners over the old signs. Cute generic exterior. Cute interior, could have been more nautical. Large bar with TVs. Lots of large tables... More

I was pleasantly surprised last night at how good this restaurant is. It occupies an unassuming little corner of the Marketplace, so my expectations were not high. However, I found the service very attentive, an appropriately constrained menu full of great seafood, and our meal was first rate, delicious, well-prepared, and well-presented. The owner seems to have put good attention... More

We've been wanting to try Captain Mas, but wanted to wait until it had been opened for a while. TA reviews were good, so we gave it a shot. We were greeted nicely and our server was great, but we noticed right away that it was rather cool and so the kids complained the whole time, which was made worse... More

I found this place on an advertisement, checked the online reviews and took a chance. I have to say it was one of the best restaurant experiences I've had in a long time. One of the owners greeted me with a warm smile welcoming attitude. When I told him I was only in town for a few days he made... More

In observance of the Persian New Year (first day of Spring--not a religious holiday) we attended a special evening, complete with Persian food and entertainment. The relevance of this review for the general public is that "management cares". They did a great job to accommodate our family of 14, complete with children and grandparents. The servers were attentive and everything... More

Many dishes had a variety of seafood. This gave us an opportunity to try several fish items. The oysters were great and a fantastic price on Thursdays. I would defiantly go back for more.

Had dinner here with friends. The fresh chips were a great way to start, so good we got a second serving. We had shrimp, crab legs, salmon and seafood plate. Everything was fresh and well prepared. We are looking forward to our next visit.
