As of April 17, this restaurant remains closed with a “Reopening Soon” sign in the window. I have come here each time I am in the Miami area for the great food & was sad to find it closed. If I had checked TA, I...More

I went of dinner last night and the place was closed and the windows were all covered from inside. I called and someone answered and they told me that the place has been sold and should be open again in 8 weeks.

This is real-deal Florida, not some rip-off chain draped in fishing nets and plastic mounted fish. To get any more authentic, you would have to be sitting on the fishing boat. Totally unpretentious. Captain Jim’s has been a go-to place for locals for decades. It’s...More

Really enjoyed the food...service was decent and friendly but since we were one of 3 couples in the whole place that was expected. They were out of iced tea (?) and clams but other then that I would return for sure.

Great service & atmosphere, but the food (captains trio- mahi/ conch/ shrimp) was not very good. But waitress offered to bring something else since I hadn't eaten much, so I ordered the crab cake- which was actually very good.More

Yes, the triple play is not the best way to go on a hot afternoon. It is a rather hearty dish! That dish is very popular for dinner. I think your choice for our crab cake was a better way to go for our hot...More
