We had take out. We tried to call but they must have forgot that we were on the line. So we went to them. Food is okay. Prices are a little high for the quality. Family really enjoyed the scallops.

This is a small hole in the wall restaurant in a shack-like building, but it's full of fresh seafood in this small waterside town. Dining is outdoors, picnic style, with small umbrella tables on sand and a few board-type games for child entertainment. No air-conditioning inside while ordering, with only a fan, so a little uncomfortable in the recent extreme... More

The best fresh seafood on the island. They were a little over loaded this trip. THey had an hour wait, but if you order from home and come, it is not a problem .The fish is fresh and each order is made right then. It hasn't been sitting under a light. There are games outside and the picnic table areas... More

Fish tacos were delicious. You choose your fish from the case, which is their fresh catch of the day. Fish can be blackened if you prefer. Sides are great. Ask for the broccoli substitution.

We stopped here for lunch. Luckily it was not too hot out, so we could eat outside at the picnic tables. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Note there is no indoor dining. They serve a lot of local seafood-the fish tacos were amazing!!

the first two times I visited CAPT Z's everything was on point. last couple times all I got was over-fried fish. blackened fish or shrimp tacos are always good from here. Staff always seems tense. A lot of food for the money, and when they get it right it is great.

After reading the reviews we just had to try this place out. The place doesn't look like much from the outside but looks are deceiving. We ordered the seafood platter for two and it was excellent. The portions were very generous and we couldn't finish it. Definitely give this place a try if you are looking for some good take... More

We drop by the cap'n's once or twice every time we're in Chincoteague, and while the place -- it's take-out only -- is a an oven with fans, the food is consistently excellent. It's a good idea to call and order ahead.

We stopped for lunch. There is no indoor dining and it was too hot to sit outside at their tables. So we took our lunch back to our hotel to eat inside in air conditioning. My fish tacos were delicious. You can choose any one of about 7 or 8 fresh fish options to put in your tacos. I chose... More
