On out trip to FL, we stayed in Santee. We had modest expectations as we searched for a place for dinner. We did not want chain-related food. We decided to try captains Quarters. Great decision! My Santee salad (feta instead of blue cheese ) was very fresh tasting. My husband had their prime rib. He was really happy with his... More

Seemingly part of the Best Western Plus Santee Inn next door. This restaurant was a great unexpected surprise ! Friendly Southern Staff stood out to us. Nice atmosphere, clean and neat decor. I had the Tilapia dinner and my husband had the Grouper. Both were exceptional to say the least ! Both came with vegetables, potatoe of your choice and... More

It's easy to see why this is in the list of the top restaurants in this town. The service (Zack was our waiter) was impeccable and the Southern hospitality and food can't be beat! The crab cakes were delicious and seasoned perfectly. The pineapple mandarin orange cake for dessert is a must-try. Don't miss this place!

I've really grown to like this place. Convenient from I-95, good food, good service, reasonably priced. If you're a Heineken drinker you might need a fallback choice like Stella. The don't serve Greenies...

The staff was personable and very concerned that you enjoy your meal. I took away one star because my $25 steak was very thin, more like a $15 steak. My husband's seafood dish was excellent. They have a good wine selection and a very pleasant atmosphere. They take reservations, and you'll get a better table when they're busy if you... More
