This is an old Florida style restaurant. Great wine values. SUper fresh and delicious fish. Best Conch Fritters I have ever had.

“Good Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Recently had dinner at the Captians Tavern and enjoyed it very much. Our previous visit several years ago left quite a bit to be desired as the Hostess was not a very pleasent person and the food was not even average. However, this time we had a very efficient server and the food was quite a bit better. The menu is so varied that it's pretty hard to choose but if you go with the basic's, i.e. Snapper, Dolphin, Shrimp you won't be disappointed. I had the broiled Sea Scallops and they were excellent. The Captains Taveren is most definately the best seafood place in South Dade.

“Very Nice Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

I took my mother to the Captain's Tavern recently and we had a very pleasant evening. They did not take reservations and we were told that there would be a 20 minute wait when we arrived, so we settled in at the bar. The bartender was incredibly nice and offered excellent suggestions for wine and cocktails. Our 20 minute wait turned into less than 10 minutes and we were duly shown our table by a very pleasant lady.

Our meals were very well prepared and the server was very kind and friendly. He was also quite knowledgeable and offered excellent entree options. When you visit this restaurant, please try the white chocolate creme brulee - delicious!

My only reason for not giving an excellent vote was that we were in a very crowded area. We were jammed pretty close to our neighbors, but it was still pretty comfortable. I will say that I will be back on my next trip to Miami.

“Ahoy Captain!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

The side salad was very good, crisp and the tomatoes was the best I have has in years!! They do not use "hot house" tomatoes but field grown jewels that burst with taste!!

The Oyster plate was divine, very lightly breaded that was not heavy at all. In fact it was almost like the texture of a tempura batter - yummy!!
