This place, located in a strip mall looks very unassuming. You walk in if you can get in because the place is always packed, and you find the freshest fish probably in Indiana! You order from a wonderful menu and you get some Great fish and seafood

This place has been named the best restaurant in Indiana more than once and there’s a good reason for that. Their seafood is beautiful and they prepare it lovingly. The sides are way better than you’d imagine. Plus the staff is just nice. What’s not to like? The lobster roll is unbelievable. Ditto the soft shelled crab. Gorgeous oysters. Huge shrimp. Are you hungry yet.

So you order the special sandwich or the dinner (or something else from their extensive menu)....what about the sides???

Our favorites are the collard greens and the baked beans. Although the collards might welcome a little heat, they are very flavorful with many pieces of ham (we think).

And the baked beans......sweet but not too sweet.....very balanced and "creamy".

Maybe in the future we might try some of the other sides, but it is hard to leave these two favorites.

And, if you are able to do so, avoid the traditional meal hours unless you want to wait a long time. Better yet, call ahead with your order and pick it up and dine at home.

We enjoyed this place enough that we went twice during our stay in Indy. Caplinger’s is a very informal place with very reasonable prices. You sit at community tables after placing your order and they call your number when it’s ready. You get their attention and they bring the food over. The fish is great, a variety of cooking methods and you can even pick your own seafood from the case for an extra fee. Sides are interesting: corn with old bay, collard greens, chipotle coleslaw, baked beans, green beans, etc. Plus you get two hush puppies. Service is efficient and friendly. And you sit with and meet others while waiting. A good time was had by all.

We went to the restaurant for dinner on a Tuesday and it was very busy, but the wait for the food was worth it. They have seafood for everyone's taste. The side dishes are very good, too. We had the fried catfish, fried shrimp and fries. My wife enjoyed the fried okra. The staff was very friendly and did not rush us out of the restaurant even though the store had closed and we were still eating. Endless fountain drinks. Parking no problem.
