An open warm friendly atmosphere, clean and welcoming. The menu was concise and well laid out. After much consideration I decided to go with the two 5oz crab cakes. When it came out, the presentation was great, but that didn't compare to the taste. Without...More

I really enjoyed this place. Had the all you can eat snow crab legs and really enjoyed it. The crab legs were so meaty and fresh! And I really enjoyed the staff and management. Their service was beyond excellent. Will definitely visit again!

Captain Mas is our favorite "special" restaurant. I think their crab cakes are the best I've eaten anywhere - faintly sweet, almost no filler, and cooked to perfection. Delicious scallops, crab legs, and oysters too. They prepare everything as it's ordered - no microwave food...More

I go to Captain Mas regularly. My favorites are the Clams or Mussels casino and the crab dip. They have an all you can eat FRESH BLUE CRAB feast for 45 dollars. Definitely worth it. The staff and owners are awesome!
