Some local friends and I went to lunch at Captain Joe's and I was more expecting an average experience. What I got was a unbelievably great home-cooked meal, incredible value for the price and perfect, friendly service! The Grouper was melt in your mouth delicious and portions so large I easily got another take home meal. The buffet was chock... More

Driving on I-95 and was looking at TripAdvisor to find a good spot to stop for a late lunch. Our meal was just ok. The service was good. The place reminded me of the classic country restaurant you'd see on TV. My wife exclaimed at how expensive items on the menu were for such an out of the way place.... More

This restaurant is not at all intimidating to any guest. Shorts and flip flops or your Sunday best flies here. Service is good, the food is most often great but when it is not...send it back. They will make it right in my experience. They have an ample soup and salad bar. I have eaten here my entire life of... More

Captian Joe's is great. I love the salad bar and my husband is a seafood fan. There are options for kids too. If in Midway, stop by...you won't be disappointed. :)

I love the salad bar in the Midway/Riceboro area. Perfect spot to eat for any and all occasions. I usually get shrimp or seafood platter but everything is exceptional including the wait staff.

Mediocre seafood for the same price as good seafood other places nearby.Service was excellent. Head east or south for better food at about the same pricing.

Came here on a lunch break from work and ordered the soup and salad. Salad bar was pretty pathetic. Mushrooms looked like they were about to grow mushrooms. The lettuce trough only had the whites left. No one seemed to be checking on it. Most of the rest of the vegetables looked pretty bad unless they had been preserved (jalapenos,... More

FABULOUS waitress helped us since this was our first visit. She recommend the seafood platter for 2 (we had two adults and two children ages 7 and 9) and allowed us all to get the salad bar for $39.95 total! The fried shrimp are beyond words. Definitely different from B & J's in Darien, but equally delicious. I don't know... More

This is one of our favorite seafood restaurants for good basic fried shrimp. You won't find frill and fancy here. It's a great value for your money. The food is plentiful and tasty. The servers are friendly. The sweet tea is just perfect to accompany that bite-sized shrimp dinner. I usually get the small appetite portion of bite sized shrimp... More
