From time to time we like to get fish to eat and this is a place you can get in and out of quickly. We don't like Long John's fish but we do like their fish. They usually run a senior's special with two or three choices which are usually reasonable in price.

Restaurant is clean but bathrooms are always dirty. Food has always been good but very pricey for the amount you get. Would rather go across the road to Red Lobster to get more bang for my buck.

We loved going to Captain D's after church on Sunday. It has been years since eating there. The lunch buffet was great and the kids kept going back for more fish. We will be back!

This Captain D's was one of the nicest I have been. Looked new. The food was excellent and fresh. Prepared very quickly. They also had a buffet that I didn't get. But you don't always see one of these in a Captain D's. Highly recommend if you are in Kingsport.

I liked everything. A very clean eating establishment,associates very professional. There wasn't anything I disliked about Captain D's. Each time I stay at the Super 8 at Lynn Garden,Kingsport,TN.,Captain D's is where I always eat;that's my favorite eating place.

Like the selection of sides. Like that you can order baked fish. Service is quick.
