After a very disappointing dinner at another local restaurant (Bill' Seafood) the day before, our truly wonderful experience at Captain Zack's really changed our opinion of the seafood available on Chincoteague Island. We had a 'real deal' grilled scallop basket that we could also have ordered fried or broiled. It came with fries and homemade hush puppies.and the portions were... More

We managed to sneak away for another beach day at Assateague! Our first stop was Captain Zacks! They fried up a pound of beautiful sea scallops for us, and an order of fresh cut fries! We feasted on that, then spent our afternoon relaxing on Assateague National Sea shore! On our way home we had to stop again, and get... More

Saw the big sign and though "ok, let's stop there for lunch". Take out only w/ a few tables outside in full sun. We went to a little park down the road and when we opened out boxes of food we were ALL disappointed with what we had. The fires were limp and covered in old, nasty grease. Everything that... More

We are never disappointed. This is a take out only place and is always busy even during a tropical storm. The staff is very nice, efficient and accommodating. They also have fresh local seafood for sale that is very good. Their hush puppies are phenomenal along with the main dishes. Best lobster rolls (special menu item not always available) outside...

Fortunately there is a nice area to hang out and wait (sand, games, seating) because the wait was pretty long. Probably close to an hour from when we ordered our food. It was really delicious though-the shrimp tacos and coconut shrimp were so good! The tacos came three to an order and were huge. Downside...no drinks! They have vending machines... More

Stopped for food after sightseeing tour on the Pony Express with the family. Ordering was easy wait time was short. We took our food back to where we were staying but they have a few picnic tables outside. No tables inside though so plan to grab and go which was what we wanted. When we got back to the house...

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
