Captain's Tavern serves the most consistent fresh and best fish in the area. If you read a review that says otherwise, either that person had a bad night or doesn't like fish. If you ever are served a bad meal, tell the server and they will fix it, pronto. But it has never happened to me. They serve a huge variety of fish, prepared in any fashion you want, and accompanied by a large variety of sauces and toppings. Tuesday night 2 for 1 lobster is a killer. And with all the sides that come with dinner (salad, side, potato, bread) you will never go hungry!

I just read a review of someone who said they had a bad meal there - on their birthday. Hard to understand as I've been a local for 20+ years, been eating here forever and really, unless you are eating the napkin, everything else here is really good. The fish is caught daily (Captain Ray Rosher goes there - he wouldn't bother if it wasn't good as he knows fresh fish), the conch chowder is the best around, the yellowtail encrusted macadamia nut is just amazing and my wife always orders the yellowtail a la paulo and it tastes great. Their oysters Rockefeller is probably the best I've ever had and their extensive wine list is maybe the best deal in Miami. Wait staff is usually moving fast and they do a fine job. I've never had a bad meal there. They have lobster specials during the week - come early and plan to wait - but the wait will be worth it.

There are some people you can't please but for 99% of the world, this place will be the best seafood in town.

A fixture in the Kendall Pinecrest area for almost 40 years. A favorite of locals that demand fresh seafood and reasonably priced wines. Their Tuesday night twin lobster special draws big crowds and long lines (no reservations). Preparations run the gamut from standard broiled fish to imaginative such as Macedamian encrusted snapper. Save room for the key lime pie.

The lace to have fresh seafood well prepared and at reasonable prices and a wonderful wine list at rock Bottom prices,go there on Tuesday and be ready to wait a while but worth it for the. Lobster special , every pinecrest old timer shows up for this one. The baris a good alternative if you don't want to wait too long

The interior needs a little updating

No reservations accepted unless more than 6 people in the group

Their offerings always depend on what the fishermen caught that day. They do have special steak and lobster nights but the big draw is their fresh fish. They do not advertise but the place is usually packed, even mid week. We have never been disappointed and we usually eat here when in town. The place is just 1960's in style but the food is great. Just don't expect to dress up or expect that fellow diners will.
