Over the past 4-5 years, we've eaten here numerous times. The service and food have always been good. Last night was a disappointing exception. We experienced long delays in acknowledgement, ordering, receipt of orders and getting our checks. I don't fault our server as the...More

Good food & prices. Friendly service. Nicely decorated inside with patio service and a patio bar. Lots of parking. A large tourist store with rides for young children & a zip line with water ponds and a museum.

This is the more expensive restaurant that is part of the Shell Factory and on their grounds. It is almost always packed. The food is decent enough, but you don't eat here only for the food. It has a wonderfully fishy, nautical, hokey tourist atmosphere...More

A trip to the Shell Factory wouldn't be complete without a stop at our renowned Capt'n Fishbones Seafood Grill. Open for lunch and dinner all week long, it offers comfortable table and booth seating in the dining room and bar, or at our open-air (weather permitting) new Swamp Bar Patio. You can even bring your dog for a treat at our new outdoor DogBones Café. The MENU Ranges from appetizers to fresh seafood which includes our popular fried fish special. Both Capt'n Fishbones & the Dolphin Room are newly renovated and offer great service with Old Florida Charm.
