Friendly service, was busy-ish but no wait. Both got fried fish, one mackarel, one flounder (Mackarel was better than the flounder).

Spoke with an older, local gentleman whilst waiting for our table. He advised the this restaurant was a local favorite, providing good food at less than the other restaurants on "the good side of the road." While The Captain's Table doesn't sit ocean side, we all enjoyed our meals. Hush puppies were the best we had, this trip. I enjoyed... More

We were lucky enough to meet the OWNER on this visit!! We've been here before....Sweet Lady!!! And our waitress/hostess was super nice to us. She was just there everytime we needed something. And especially after I was telling her throughout the meal how GREAT everything was prepared.... The fried popcorn shrimp and fried oysters were outstanding. I think that everyone... More

Possibly the worst seafood ever. Bad presentation, over cooked, no flavor. Seemed crowded but I highly question what people see in this place. I got a sampler type plate, so I got a bit of everything and nothing was good.

The seafood was so fresh and cooked to perfection. The had half portions available which was great as I had taken several seniors on this trip. Flounder,crab cakes and even side dishes all were good and hot. Priced so reasonable.

Went on a Saturday night, but they were closed because they ran out of food. Not sure how that happens on an anticipated busy evening.

On our annual leisurely drive down Route 12 from Corolla to Hatteras we were looking for a quick, inexpensive place for lunch. Captain's Table filed the bill just right. At first glance, the Captan's Table looks like a VFW Post or American Legion; the type of place popular with the locals who throw down a few beers in the afternoon.... More
