The food here is quite good. It is a local spot and even if the parking lot is not full, you can be assured that they are busy with all the take out business they do. We realized this as we sat at our table during an early dinner. They have a separate entrance for take out which is a... More

We arrived around 9PM and it was very slow for a Saturday night, probably normal for the rural area. The service was great and the food portions were very large. Mostly, fried seafood which was very good. Good selection of Beer.

Horrible waitress. My company and I shared a pound of steam shrimp. Our waitress never brought us silverware. When we asked for plates she brought us one. We heard the specials for the day when she told another waitress.

Captain's Galley has changed from what was pretty good to just fair. The quality of the food is not consistent enough.
