I had my first meal there this year; it will not be my last. I had the crabby bites special with macaroni salad and hush puppies. Everything was delicious. All their seafood is delicious and they serve the best hush puppies on the island. Service...is always friendly.More

And by that I mean get the boats! Yes the seafood boats are worth the wait! Everything you want and more, these are so yummy we took them to the beach the next day and ate them cold and they were still delicious. Love the...fried scallops and shrimp and fish! Not the place for a crab cake, but not to worry, plenty to choose from.More

We had lunch from Captain Zach's when we arrived in town on Friday. Crab sandwich was excellent! We then ordered dinner take out dinner on Sunday evening and unfortunately the wait was close to 3 hours. When we called they were honest in saying it...would be minimum of two if not longer. Food was good again but hard to wait so long for dinner. I would definitely recommend when visiting the island.More

We actually ended up discovering this place because it was after 8pm and several places were already closed. I have both a dairy and gluten allergy. Not only were they accommodating but the food was really good. My companion - with no dietary restrictions- has...the same opinion.More

Great option for social distancing, with a wide variety of seafood options, some of them not deep fried so there are healthy options as well. Service is quick and friendly

I have had good food here in the past. Eating on-site is best as the take-out containers trap the steam and food can get mushy. Just had our 2nd bad experience this summer. We won’t be going back. This restaurant only offers take-out. They cannot...handle orders for some reason. Tonight’s visit consisted of a simple order for four people at 5:20. Was quoted 60-90 minutes wait time. It’s 8:02 and we’re still waiting. Can’t get through by phone. They’re just not set up to handle a Saturday night in a tourist town. Mgt - don’t take the orders if you can’t fulfill them. Kids are starving. It’s a nice menu, but we’re done with Zack’s.More

Call in and order ahead! The restaurant is only offering carryout right now, but still very busy. We put our order in around 6pm, but didn't get food until 7:30pm. But, it well worth the wait! The crabcake is fresh and cooked perfectly, literally feel...the cheers from my stomach! My husband ordered oyster and fish tacos, large portion, fresh meat and nicely balanced veggie! Everything takes sooo good! I have decided to go back for lunch already!More

We always make this our first stop on the Island, lunch from Zack's before heading to the hotel. The cod and chips are amazing, the crab cake is ALL crab and the hushpuppies delicious.

My family of four split two seafood feasts. They were great and plenty of food. Be aware they can get very busy on the weekend so order early especially on Saturdays in the summer.

Capt. Zach's really has some of the best food on the island. All kinds of fresh seafood and veggies. I am gluten free, and I could make a meal just on their steamed broccoli and corn. My family likes the crab/crabcakes. Unfortunately, they are super...busy and have limited hours so a wait of an hour and a half is not unusual. Plan ahead, get there early, or take something to do while you wait. The food is worth waiting for but VERY frustrating if you don't have the time.More
