Nothing specular !!!

Captain Joe's has been around a number of years and their seafood has always been okay. The salad bar seems to be better than the seafood. It is a little expensive for what is offered.

My husband and I really enjoyed having dinner at Captain Joe's. The service and food selection was very good. Especially enjoyed the salad bar which is included with the meal! My husband had the scallops and I had the stuffed flounder and both meals were well prepared. Even though they had a large party in another room our service was... More

The salad bar was well stocked and ok. The hamburgers here are tasteless. The fried shrimp is very good. I recommend this if you go. The prices are terrible though. They seem way too high priced. I recommend the fried shrimp and grilled chicken plate. That plate seemed like the best price option. The seafood platter plates were just priced... More

My husband and I enjoy this restaurant when we get a chance for a night out and want seafood. Parking lot was full when we arrived, but we were seated right away. We were expecting a long wait for our food since there were a couple of parties in the back. We both ordered bite sized fried shrimp. Salad bar... More

Growing up in a small town about 40 miles away, this was the go to place if you wanted to go eat seafood. Family oriented, wait staff always friendly, good value for the meals. Salad bar is always fresh, with a variety that some "chain" restaurant's are skimping on. Word of warning: don't get the buffet unless you are really... More

My husband & I went here for lunch on Memorial day during an off hour (between 2 & 3PM). We ordered from the lunch menu (available until 4PM). I ordered the chicken quesadilla, seafood gumbo & onion rings. My husband ordered fantail shrimp, coleslaw, and onion rings. The onion rings were fresh battered, huge, crisp, and delicious.

I have been to Captain Joe's only twice before, because as a seafood lover I don't find it very good. This time I was surprised. I ordered the catfish and fantailed shrimp, both fried. the shrimp were great, but the catfish was just ok. The salad bar was good, but the baked potato was just average. I don't know when... More
