We ate here when we found Oyster Factory closed for renovations. I wanted to like it but was disappointed. My fish tacos had an earthy taste. My husband was happy with his fish sandwich. Waitress was very sweet and attentive. There are usually much better options on the island.

A group of six out-of-town friends on vacation here selected Captain Woody's as the evening's dinner destination. A very good choice indeed! We were seated promptly and attended to just as quickly. The dinner menu contained a wide array of options to suit most any taste. From house-recommended chef-inspired entrees to fried seafood platters, salads, and sandwiches, there was something... More

The food here is very good. The restaurant is nice and spacious. They are always out very quickly with your food. The staff was very friendly. I would go back here again!

Captain Woody's has a great coupon for the winter months. There is a reason they have been in business for so long, excellent food and reasonable prices. When you're lucky enough to have their BOGO ad, it's even better. I had the grilled grouper melt on brioche. It was awesome. My husband had the fried oysters with seasoned fries. He... More

At Captain Woody's the portions are generous, but not over-the-top. I have had their shrimp and grits (excellent) and recently had their broiled grouper (also excellent). My grouper came with a garden salad packed with veggies, rice and stir-fried veggies, all well-seasoned and tasty. My husband always has a fried seafood combination and he has no complaints. He said the... More

For several years we have stopped at Cpt. Woody's for dinner on our first night's visit to the island. However, this was the first time we have stopped on a Sunday night which may explain the food. First, the beer was cold, the service, the fried shrimp and clam strips were good. However, the broiled grouper had a strong fish... More

Have been to both locations. Ordered shrimp and grits in Bluffton last year and loved all the Tasso ham and chopped tomatoes on top. HH location used no tomatoes and could not locate any ham. Good meal nonetheless. Grandson adored chix tenders!!

We went in just before happy hour ended and sat at the bar. There weren't many options for beers and the happy hour deals weren't that great. The hush puppies and nachos were good but not the best on the island. The bartender wasn't the friendliest but the menu for dinner looked good. We left because we were so full... More

This and its sister restaurant are always fun places to visit; they often have special coupons in the local magazines and papers. Wait staff have always been friendly and helpful, while food is not fine dining it is always tasty and plentiful.
