Captains Pizza has been a neighborhood fixture for years. Food always good and the owner and staff always friendly. They even know most of their regular costumers by their first names.

A local pizza spot, a regular pizza place! The pizza we have ordered is hot, fresh and tasty! We will go again when we want a no fail pizza!

A Swampscott staple for years. Serves up pizza, calzones and sandwiches all day long. The chicken kabob is famous and definitely the best I have found. Order a roast beef "three-way" for a great roast beef experience

So convenient from the train and their pizza was soo good. I called in my order while on the train home and picked it up before walking home. I will say that there is a fee to use your credit card if the order is under the minimum. Luckily I had cash on me to avoid the fee :)

Captain's has been an institution in Swampscott for many years and when you try their food, you will understand why. From a simple slice of pizza to the calzones, they are nothing short of perfection. I think the best items they offer are the chicken kabob dishes (subs, calzones or salad)- luscious pieces of chicken and the Roast Beef sandwiches... More

Captain continues to offer consistent reliable non corporate pizza, sandwiches and salads. Love the family run focus and the same faces over the years. My choice for quick take out on a regular basis.

I have eaten here many times over the years. Yes, the pizza and calzone are great, and yes, the steak and cheese sub is outstanding, but the veal dinner is simply phenomenal... enough for two meals! Very accommodating staff too.

Thank Al M
