Captain Joe's has the best Soup and Salad Bar in Jesup by far!! Everything on the Salad bar is very fresh and Delicious. I am allergic to Shell fish, the staff at Captain Joe's took extra precautions to ensure my meal was cooked shell fish free!! The service was also excellent!!

They have the best deviled crab! I've had it several times, and it's always delicious. Their baked sweet potatoes are really good, too. They have a really nice salad bar, with a crab salad, and a tuna salad that go great with their garlic biscuits. It's a cute and clean restaurant. The hostess is a sweetie, and the servers are...

And sausage. Stopped for lunch and my husband had the jumbalaya and I had fried shrimp. Both excellent. I was impressed with a pitcher of iced tea on the table and a lid for a to-go cup without asking. Also the Caesar salad had lots of Parmesan and dressing on the side so you didn't experience dressing overload. Would have... More

Surprisingly good seafood away from the coasts! Food, shrimp, flounder, sides, and deserts were excellent. We did not expect to find good fresh seafood this far from the coast, and were pleasantly rewarded! Service was a little slow, but I think they were not expecting the amount of traffic when we were there.

Went for dinner- ordered the Coconut fan tail shrimp. The portion was sizeable, but then it was rather expensive for a fish dinner. The salad bar (included in the price) provided a good selection. The sweet tea was very good.

Captain Joes used to be my favorite go to place for seafood but this recent trip has me looking for another place to eat. Just last year it was so good that I raved about it but this recent trip made me ashamed of my review. Let me explain. My husband, my sister, and I went in at 4:00 p.m.... More

Visited Labor Day not very many people in restaurant! Wait staff was very friendly and took order promptly! Salad bar was good but Shrimp plate was not! Very few shrimp on plate with COLD hush puppies and onion rings! Don't usually stop here and won't again!

We were greeted by a friendly hostess right away. Our server was just as friendly and very attentive throughout the meal. She didn't miss a beat of anything even though she had many other tables to handle. We ordered the seafood platter for two. It does serve all three of us with leftovers. The salad bar is always nice with... More

The wait staff is mediocre; the food is too; the salad bar is not good either. Wish there were a place in Jesup to find good seafood...if there is, this ain't it.
