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 here! Side dishes, appetizers, and sauces are excellent as well. Dining facility is very clean... 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!

I enjoyed this restaurant for a small business dinner last week. The menu has a lot of variety, attractively served with colorful side dishes and it tasted great! I think this restaurant is under appreciated as there were few customers Tuesday and Wednesday nights. The decor was nice too. I would definitely return!!

We had a very pleasant dining experience. My husband enjoyed the New England Clam Chowder and the Captain 's NY Strip Steak. I had the Seaweed Salad and the Diver Scallops. My son ordered the Gator Tots and the Blackened Catfish. The portions were plentiful and the food was good. The service was great. The atmosphere was welcoming. The owner,... More

My husband and I dropped by late Sunday evening. We have dined there several times in the past. It was only an hour before closing time but we were famished. In spite of the hour, the owner personally greeted us graciously and couldn't have been more welcoming. Our waitress was pleasant, professional and attentive. My husband ordered sea bass and...

The customer service is super great! But tried a variety of food and the only dish that was good was the alligator bites. I think the blue crabs they served us were all bad and way over priced for the size. The tomato sauce they put on the seafood boil is horrible, unless you like tomato paste. The snow crab... More

My husband and I visited Captain Mas seafood for the first time. The owner greeted us at the door and was very personable. Our server was also the bartender,and while she was very nice, she was not very attentive. Especially since the place was empty as it was early. We had to repeatedly ask her to refill our drinks. We... More

Went here on a Friday night. Web stated open until 10pm but when we arrived they said 9pm. There was about 14 of us. I must say we were pleasantly surprised we were taken good care of. I ordered fish and chips was good. Every one else said their food was ok also.

This is in an out of the way location, but you have to go. I had the shrimp and grits, my wife the crab crusted mahi. Both were excellent. Fresh ingredients, great taste, large portions. We each had the house salad and it was large and very fresh. I can not recommend this restaurant more highly, it truly is worth... More

I had king crab legs. Delicious. Asked for extra butter. In the beginning the server said that there is no more butter, but later on came with 2 small cups.
