“Love fresh seafood?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

To me, the specials are the way to go at Capt. Tom's. Daily lunch specials are invariably fresh, hot and delicious. So much so, I haven't ried anything else other than a salad one time. OK, but pinkish "blue cheese" dressing clearly had blue cheese in it, but something else in the red color family. I'll stick with the seafood specials from now on.

“Mother's Day Dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

First time to this restaurant as a special treat to celebrate Mother's Day and my birthday. We finished up a delicious meal. The crab legs were cooked to perfection, the fried meals were great too. When we requested desert for the three of us, the waitress told us the kitchen was already closed. We asked if we could get it to go and she had to check. It was ten SECONDS past nine! The restaurant is suppose to stop seating at nine not role up the aisles and kick out the paying customers. So much for a celebration. That left a really bad taste in our mouths. I'm not so sure we'll go back. The staff could really use some decent training to maximize profits for the owners.

“Good ole' fish house!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We have eaten here on several occasions and my husband has eaten here for 30 years. It is good, consistent fried seafood. They have revamped their menu over the past few years and broadened beyond the basic seafood restaurant. The onion rings are delicious and the fish is flavorful.

“Better seafood than the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Great fresh seafood, even Oceanfront Murrlles Inlet doesn't make them this good. Even the chicken is great. Take out is great for families. Kids love looking at the Aquariums too.
