We were staying at a resort nearby and this restaurant came highly recommended. My family and I were very glad we came here for dinner. The food was very fresh and delicious. We would definitely return if we return to Santee.

Service was poor. Food tasted like a TV dinner. Parking lot small. My husband and I were put in the large group tables. It was so noisy . Awful. Couldn't wait to get out of there

I was staying at the Hampton Inn across street and they recommended this restaurant. It was very good, Prime Rib on Saturday night was very good. I usually don't like to order Prime Rib in an unknown place but I lucked out here. Cooked perfectly and served hot. Service was very good. There is smoking inside at the bar. Did... More

Food is consistent, but a bit pricey. This is more upscale than most Santee establishments, with a good wine list and linen table cloths.

SANTEE, SC has limited food choices, but Captain's Quarters should be at the end of the list. Frozen fish in all but one special is what you will find. The one fresh choice is a whole fish, and I have not tried it. Chicken tenders are usually safe, but not tonight. The baked potato was the highlight of my meal.... More

We first ate at Captains Quarters last February when we came in late, tired and hungry. Even tho they were just about ready to close they served us anyway. So we decided to go back on our next trip. There was a wine who's variety I'd never heard of so our waiter graciously brought me a taste, then I ordered... More

If you are expecting "high-end dining", please don't stop. Leave the tables for the rest of us. The food is spot on -- best crayfish (crawfish) I've had outside of New Orleans. The lasagne was an unexpected high spot. The menu has something for everyone. We would seek this out again.

Considering the atmosphere of the restaurant and the prices on the menu...I expected more. My husband and I both ordered steaks...neither was cooked as ordered. And, honestly, not the best cut of meat I've seen...especially for the price. The meal was...just okay.
