We stopped for a quick bite to eat after hitting Southampton Harley Davidson. Hubby ordered the Pulled Pork Sandwich w/ fries. I ordered the grilled Chicken Breast w/ Brie. Both were tasty. I definitely will try the seafood next time. Hubby LOVED their fries!! We like the picnic style bench seating, old school :)

Roadside dining is the secret to eating great food cheaply throughout the summer in rural Mass. Second only to reading the reviews is looking at the number of cars pulled up outside and Captain Jack's always has plenty.

It is basic. One wooden shack with two windows, order through the first window and collect through the next, then take your food to the tables around the side or back to your car. The secret is simple, high quality ingredients cooked well. They do serve burgers, hot dogs and specials like grilled pork sandwiches but the seafood is outstanding - especially the fried full belly clams and the scallop sandwiches. There are some good looking veggie options as well.

It's not exactly health food but they do source carefully and responsibly. You can see the farm stand where they get produce just across the road and the seafood delivery direct from the fish Market in Boston pulled up while I was eating.

A special like a Lobster roll or Portobello sandwich with sides will cost $5-10, a cup of chowder nearer $3. They make great homemade lemonade but if you want beer or wine they don't mind if you bring your own.

If you made a 50 mile detour just for the onion rings it would be worth it.
