If you’re looking for fresh fish, this is the place. There are other restaurants in the area that may have better atmosphere and fancier accommodations, but I doubt there are any that served better fish!!

Captain Kidd’s is more than food; it is a destination and an experience. We loved the freshness, friendliness and casual atmosphere. It’s a must if you’re in this area. Always busy expect long lines but they move fast. Know what you want. It is all...great. I’ve enjoyed the crab cakes, lobster roll, sea bass and this time red snapper.More

We enjoyed our fish and chips and the friendly staff. But we were horrified by the tons of rubbish generated by the disposable dishes. Everything comes in paper and plastic. As you are very popular, couldnt you afford to go back to proper china, cutelry...and stuff? Thank you for your attention.More

Captain Kidds is located on the pier. Parking is nearby and something of a walk, but you will find a spot. You wait in line and order your food. They give you a number when your food is ready. You can eat there or take...away. There are two lines that I saw, one for the market, you can get your raw oysters there or order fish to take home. The other line is for the hot food. We decided to try a few things and see what we liked. We had a lobster roll which was excellent on a fresh roll. We also had fish and chips which were super tasty, but a tad greasy. It comes with two sides I think, but you have to tell them otherwise it appears you just get fries. We also had macaroni salad and that was great. What we really loved was their soup. We had a clam chowder and a lobster bisque. We will come back just for that. They were so good. The clam chowder had loads of clams and the lobster bisque was thick, unlike some bisques, but I loved it that way. The service was very nice and pretty fast. There is always a line, but it moves fast. I think you will love this place. Have fun.More

I enjoyed the clam chowder. It was rich and creamy with a healthy portion of clams. Very tasty but needed a touch of salt. I really loved the ahi tuna sandwich. A nice slab of tuna with a great bun (not too big, not too...bready) You get a healthy portion of sides with your meal so come hungry. Good fries that were just smothered in garlic. Heaven. Once again needed a bit of seasoning, i.e. salt, to cut through heavy garlic. The IPA on tap was awesome. Friendly staff. Tables outside were great. be sure to grab a paper table cloth on your way out.More

We walked and in and the line seemed to be moving. You order at the counter, you find your own seating, and your number is called when your order is ready. The tables were not cleaned so we had to wipe it ourselves. The food...looked good. The calamari and fries were tasty. However, my daughter got sick from the clams. We're not sure how "fresh" this really was even if you see the live fish at the market.More

Always delicious with lots of fresh options in the counter. They have soups and several sides and offer several different cooking styles for fresh fish. Good beer/wine menu and lots of seating indoor, partial indoor and fully outside. Can get packed during weekends and at...dinner time - with a line outside the door and around the building :) but it moves fast and the food is worth it.More

We were excited about being able to choose our own fish and have them cook it. That part was pretty cool. We got fish and chips. It seemed like we had to wait kind of a long time as there weren’t that many people in...the restaurant. It was nice to sit outside at one of their picnic tables. Our expectations were high as this restaurant has been in business a very, very long time. But it wasn’t really anything extraordinary. Just pretty ordinary seafood.More

Great friendly staff, ordered a scallop plate takeout meal with coleslaw and rice pilaf. Entire meal was excellent especially for a take out and was prepared in 5 minutes. I highly recommend this as a dinner takeout option during these lockdown times. Great job folks...we appreciate it.More
