Excellent fish tacos. I had the grilled fish and my wife had the blackened. We would have licked our plates if there would have been anything left :-) Good food, reasonable prices and friendly help. It works!

I had the fish and shrimp combo, was very good, very large slab of fish. Wife and daughter had the Thursday special, Chicken Fried Chicken, they raved about it and the sides of green beans, mashed potatoes, and salad. Nice atmosphere, good service and decent price. Was hesitant to stop as we stopped by about 7 PM to eat and only 2 cars were in parking lot. That normally means a bad place to eat. Not so here. By the time we left there were 10 cars there and everyone seemed happy. Give it a try.

We were recommended to come here by a friend and was not dissapointed. The food was fresh and service wonderful. Decor is so so but for a nice mid priced meal it was great.

We went to Cap'n Roy's based on reviews & agree wholeheartedly with the positive reviews. This is a Mexican restaurant with a variety of dishes, including many seafood dishes. The 3 fish tacos (grilled or fried) came in corn tortillas, topped with shrredded cabbage, pico de gallo, & a zippy sauce. Alongside came charro beans in a bowl made with cilantro & tomatoes, rice, & a small green salad. A lot of really delicious food! The prices are reasonable, the waitresses friendly, & there are lots of photos all over the walls of people catching some really huge fish. The ambiance is totally nautical which is perfect. It is a delightful place for an informal meal & we highly recommend it!
