The BEST clam chowder anywhere ! We ate at the bar and also had oysters on the half shell. Service was quick and friendly. We loved it!

Captain Curt's never disappoints. Very consistent and good. Probably the best clam chowder I have ever had.

Enjoyed everything at captain curt's!!! From the conch fritters, to crab cakes and the grouper sandwich, it's a must see place when in Siesta Key.

Get the chowder! Lots of clam in every bite. "Best" is thrown around a lot but this was really good chowder. And the rest of the meal was pretty good too. I had the grilled file fish which I liked. Well cooked with good flavor. My buddy and his lady had fried pollock and fried cod and he found her... More

Our family had an excellent meal here. Crab legs were amazing, crab cakes delicious and the chowder is wonderful. May have to wait for a table since.

If you're near South Bridge, it's a decent place to eat. Just don't expect anything special. I was there about two weeks ago, and, frankly, can't remember anything I had. Whatever it was, it wasn't bad, Judy not hood enough to remember.

The crab legs were good and so was the service! It was really busy but the wait wasn't long at all which was awesome! Parking was a little tricky we eventually found a spot on the street. It's also located right next to a plaza with a bunch of other stuff to do!

Went here for lunch after our bike rental from the place next door. Best clam chowder I ever had, hands down. They sell kits to make at home, but you CANNOT carry it on a plane in your carry-on. Either checked baggage or order it online. Go early for lunch (opens at 11:30) to avoid crowd. Fried Grouper sandwich was... More
