“Excellent food excellent waiter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Went to Captains Tavern on a Saturday night with a large party to celebrate our parents 55 Wedding Anniversary.

We were seated immediately and throughout our dining experience the waiter was excellent.

Many of us ordered the 2lb lobster that comes with salad and a side for 30.00

Let me tell you. The lobster they give you are 3 lb lobster and they are delicious.

No small lobster here.

The lobster has so much meat that two people could share a meal.

Definitely a excellent deal for 30.00

Highly recommended.

“Consistent good food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Captain's Tavern has been in business since the early 70's. The decor hasn't changed much since it opened but the chef keeps up with current trends and the food is consistently good, at times excellent. This restaurant often sells a two pound main lobster for $29. with salad and potato. If you're wanting consistent good food, this is the place. The wine list is extensive and prices are very fair. The fish is very fresh and the chef always has wonderful specials. Oh and Thursday night is steak night. Who would think you'd get a fantastic steak at a seafood restaurant. No wonder this place stays in business for so many years. It's one of my favorite places in the area.

“Good Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

Recently had dinner at the Captians Tavern and enjoyed it very much. Our previous visit several years ago left quite a bit to be desired as the Hostess was not a very pleasent person and the food was not even average. However, this time we had a very efficient server and the food was quite a bit better. The menu is so varied that it's pretty hard to choose but if you go with the basic's, i.e. Snapper, Dolphin, Shrimp you won't be disappointed. I had the broiled Sea Scallops and they were excellent. The Captains Taveren is most definately the best seafood place in South Dade.
