Hole in the wall bar with average food but overpriced for what it was. Drinks were good. Appetizer was good. I had fish tacos but what I got was odd shaped fried fish sticks in a wrap w/an obnoxious amount of shredded cabbage?

My sister and I split a seafood platter, and it was so delicious. The Spanish Mackerel was as good as brook trout, coated as opposed to battered. The crab cake was huge and full of crab, oniony and perfectly seasoned. The oysters had great depth of flavor. The scallops were *perfectly* cooked, not remotely chewy. I didn't try the clams...

Enjoyed a nice dinner at Capt'n Rolos. I had the fried oyster salad and they tasted great. My husband ordered a non-seafood entree and it was really good as well. If you catch your own fish, you can bring it in and they will cook it for you for your dinner! Love that. Sadly my husband and brother-in-law didn't fare... More

We had a family meal for 4. Nothing fancy; burger and chicken strips, but the staff were friendly. The food was good and came very quickly. An easy walk from iur campsite. We would go back.

Capt'n Rolo's has a good selection of seafood and standard fare (hamburger, BBQ etc.). The menu is not overly expansive, but there is something on there for everyone. The fried banana peppers and the Ahi Tuna were both great starters. The seafood tacos never disappoint. There is also a good selection of beer on tap including some Belgians. The service... More

We camp next door at Frisco Woods Campground once a year. During our weeks stay we normally walk over to eat dinner at least once and go two or three other times for late aternoon drinks and appetizers :-) Both the seafood plates and appetizers are made from fresh ingredients and properly cooked. The staff is first rate.

We stopped here on the reccommendation of captain Tammie who said their fish tacos and shrimp were great. A small kids menu - so we ended up ordering off the full menu for all four of us as it wasn't much more expensive. All our entrees cost $10.99. I had the fish tacos which were tasty and filling with lots... More

Food was good and inexpensive. Only problem was I had ordered a wrap and got a sandwich but it was replaced with the right thing, just took a little while.

Local food....MY favorite food was the fish tacos, and coleslaw ! The crab cake was a little mushy, but the pasta salad was pretty good. Great customer service.
