“Solid Fried Seafood, If A Tad Pricey”

Captain Bill's Seafood & Steak
Ranked #82 of 916 Restaurants in Greensboro
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 4, 2012

This place has been around forever, it seems (30 years actually), and has built up a loyal base of customers. Obviously, it is primarirly a seafood joint, but also serves a small number of steak dishes, salads, sandwiches & subs, and Chef's Specialty Platters that include: Shrimp Creole, Beef Tips, Greek Chicken, & Souvlaki. There are Pasta Plates (Spaghetti, Lasagna, etc) and there are a number of Children's Plates - something for everyone.

Some of these items are nice, but the seafood is the thing to get here (Remember Restaurant rule #1 - It is usually best not to order a steak at a seafood place) They are known for their Popcorn Shrimp, and rightly so - it is consistently very good. The Flounder here is also excellent. The traditional sides for seafood of slaw, FF, and Hush Puppies are nice, as well.

They are a little pricey here on the standard menu items - 3 item combo plates range from $17.95 to $19.95, and their Seafood Platter is also $19.95. Their single item platters begin at $9.75, rising to $14,95 . They also do something I've never encountered before - they charge 15 cents for To Go Boxes.

They do have daily specials with some better pricing, but all in all, this is not the cheapest place to eat fried seafood in the area (better in Kernersville, Burlington, Eden, and Walkertown), especially when taking into account portion size, but it is probably the best place for fried seafood in Greensboro.

I used to eat here a lot until i moved from the area. Food was good, service was great and you cannot beat the prices. This is the best seafood joint in Greensboro, no competition. I had a large group here as well, and we were all eating with 20 minutes.
