Reasonable prices for dinner and drinks

Visited on a very busy saturday night. One server for many tables. He did his best and I cannot fault. They had a live music band on that night. I ordered calamari and shrimp cocktails with Hush puppies. The hush puppies were the best. They were crunchy and soft in the inside. Compared to... read more

The restaurant's stuff and the manager/owner are rude and unacceptably unprofessional. They charged us for the wrong wine, same type as we ordered, but twice more expensive one. No one of us even thought of checking the label on the bottle they brought! We tried calmly discuss the problem with the owner, but he didn't even want to listen, he... More

Absolutely awful customer service! Waiter made a mistake and brought a wine bottle that was double the price of the one we ordered. Bottle was already opened and he started to pour the wine. Since he wrote our order down, we assumed he brought us a correct wine. Later we ordered another bottle. We only noticed a mistake when the... More

This was a busy night as we celebrated a holiday there sitting at the bar and being consistently ignored by both of the bartenders. What is the point of having bar seating option if you cannot attract the attention of the bartender? Both of them proceeded doing their work as if restaurant was empty. Apart from that and extremely dated... More

We've been here before and the food was ok, but we felt it could use a tweak. Tonight we were here visiting our family and thought we'd try again. Our server was on point and the winner of the evening was the Louisiana shrimp and grits! We were told that a new chef has arrived. Please try this option if... More

We ate here on a weekend night. This restaurant is located in the middle of the Sterling, VA shopping district, near the Regional Library. The place is ok looking with modern, popular music playing. Seating is pretty good with adequate lighting. The bathroom was clean with plenty of lighting and the bathroom supplies were well stocked. The waitstaff is attentive... More

My first visit was great. The second....crabs were served cold; service was not great; swordfish was thin and overcooked and not fresh although waiter insisted 'all of our seafood is fresh.' The last visit...service was BAD. The place was empty but I was ignored for 20 minutes. Took my drink order and advised me that what I wanted was not... More

Hot summer afternoon, spent eating all you can eat Blue crabs at Captain Mas, was very good, the medium sized Blue crabs were hot and fresh well seasoned with extra Old Bay on the side. Each serving is roughly a dozen Crabs. Service was good and responsive

As others have mentioned, the interior is the original Ruby Tuesday's. Not so fancy for your special date. I would recommend the owner enforce a classier dress code for the wait staff. Other than that, the seafood we ordered was cooked perfectly and sides all tasted great, with great presentation and service. Since it is seafood, the dishes are perhaps... 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
