This is a quick serve seafood family restaurant. That's it. The food is like the Mayflower chain, but not as heavily breaded or greasy, and better tasting. The servers are friendly, fast and very attentive. Portions are large. And everything is served hot. Nothing fancy here, and the salad bar is under par, but it is what it is.

If you are looking for a great seafood restaurant with wonderful seafood and a terrific salad bar, head to Captain's Cap. We choose it over other good seafood restaurants in the area because of the excellent fresh salad bar. The coastal decor adds to the enjoyment of the experience. There are also non-seafood choices, such as spaghetti and steak. Very... More

We had a lunch special, grilled tilapia which was a huge portion. Fries were very good, and a salad bar was included in the price. Sodas were less expensive than typical. The floor was shining clean. The whole place was in excellent condition, despite being in a building that looked 20 years or more old.

We went here for a birthday party of 18 people on a Saturday around 5:00. Captain's Cap was ready for our party and our waitress and the kitchen did an excellent job of getting our food out fast. The food was just average. I had the 3 combo platter of fillet flounder, perch, and calabash shrimp. The prices were really... More

Took my dad for lunch a few months ago and ordered green shrimp. Waitress brought out tiny Calabash shrimp and tried to convince me their green shrimp is always that size. Simply not the case. It was pretty greasy too. Hope that was just that one waitress on a bad day, but I haven't been back.

Nice mid sized restaurant has been there as long as I can remember so you know they're a winner. The buffet is extensive and everything is fresh. If you want broiled fish instead of the buffet you can order from the menu. Their hushpuppies are some of the best around and that's a good indicator around these parts! The only... More

I didn't find anything exceptional about this fish camp, but they did have a good selection on the salad bar and they salad bar is included with your meal.

On a business trip in the area and we wanted to eat healthy. So we gave this restaurant a try. There were four of us and each tried a different dish. My broiled flounder was decent. Tuna and Salmon were ordered and found to be very dry and they were both disappointing. Fried catfish was good. One of my friends... More

Our family eats here regularly. It's always delicious, and the service is always quick and very friendly. Decent little salad bar comes with your meal. My favorite is Calabash Shrimp
