“A delicious step back in time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

An evening at The Captain's Table is like a fine beach dining experience, circa 1970. The dark wood ambience, seafaring pictures and colonial furniture put me in mind of my childhood visits to the Delaware and Jersey Sores. The service was great... Our sassy waitresses Amy and Terry never led us astray, and I'll be forever grateful for Amy's recommendation of the Stuffed Lobster Tails...over the top delicious. Loved being invited to the kitchen to meet the 91 year old matriarch 'Granny' who still makes oyster stew, crab imperial and crab cakes daily...a must for every seafood lover. This was our second visit, and I'm certain we'll be back again and again!

“Where the locals go.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

I found out through a friend that this is one of the restaurants that the locals prefer. We decided to give it a try and we are glad we did.
Now, if you are looking for a fancy outside entrance with a big sign. You will not find that here.
The ambiance in the dining room is nothing to write home about either. However, if you are looking for a restaurant where the portions are big and the prices are reasonable, then you might want to give this place a try. The food leaving the kitchen is made with love. There is nothing else to say. It is a great place to eat and there are no frills. The wait staff is friendly and the deserts are tasty.

“Hidden Gem for Fine Rehoboth Beach Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Captain's Table Restaurant is situated on Route 1 just north of Dewey Beach. The signage and outside appearance of the establishment do not do it justice as the ambiance inside makes one imagine they are indeed dining with the Captain on a ship in the 1800's. There is a nice bar area with a lengthy bar and numerous seats. The menu is an excellent variety of seafood, pasta and other American favorites priced in the $12 to $26 range. If an entree isn't in the works, there is a fantastic selection of sandwiches. Homemade pies and other desserts complete the meal nicely. Our server tonight was Brenda and she made us feel welcome from the moment we were seated as did the host. My advice? Don't fight the traffic and challenging parking along Rehoboth Avenue when you can have a splendid dining experience nearby.

“O’ The Captain!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

O’ The Captain!!

This is a vintage 60-70’s flash back restaurant. Traditional captains tables, wood paneling, coke bottle glass between the bar and dining. Average age of customers is around 62 but DON’T LET THIS SCARE YOU! The food is a wonderful taste of traditional Delaware seafood. Prepared the way your mother may have done it. It is great. A very relaxed environment right on the Coast HWY strip. Needing some 1 on 1 with your special someone? This is the place to go. There s[special are wonderful and all food is fresh…really fresh. A+ for this business and a fun change up for dining experience.
