Very much enjoyed our meal. One of us had the fried scallops. Fresh and tasty. The others has the grill special, with shrimp, scallops and grouper. Week prepared. Started things off with fried frog legs. All were very good. Good prices and nice atmosphere.

Although the hostess told us there were gluten free options (I have an allergy), the waitress looked like a deer in headlights when I asked what was available. We had traveled all day and did not want to try a different restaurant (not many in the area), so we stayed. Ended up with tasteless broiled shrimp with no seasoning or... More

After traveling all day in heavy traffic, my husband and I stopped at a hotel and walked across the parking lot to this restaurant. We arrived about 8:15 pm and since it was Sunday, they were scheduled to close at 9:00 but the hostess welcomed us and many customers that came in after us. The menu was varied and the... More

We spent one night at the Best Western in Santee, SC. This restaurant was located right next door. It was a little pricey but the food and atmosphere was worth it. Very pleased with all aspects of our meal. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious.

Hidden gem! I have NEVER had a better piece of prime rib in my life! Strike that, slab. Thick, juicy and tender. I had quite the evening eating and listening to old men tell golfing stories and lies! If you are driving I 95 in SC, stop in!

The service from the hostess to the waitress was terrible. Then the food came. Bread was old and cold, fish was mushy and bland. I can't believe I spent $34 for this meal. Fast food would have been better. They have a tourist type area there and the majority of people that come in there are late fifties on up.... More

We both ordered crab cake dinners.. side salad .. and potatoes (fries/baked). Salad was good but small portion..potatoe(s) were good. Now for the crab cakes .. thought they were ok ..but... More

My sister and I tried this place on a tip from a local. We were traveling from FL to VA and staying the night in Santee. The restaurant is pleasant with friendly staff. Our waiter, Zach, was delightful, knowledgeable and very attentive. My sister had Chicken Parm and I had Shrimp Scampi. Both were delicious, and I liked that the... More

We make sure we always stop at Exit 98 in SC so we can eat at Captains Quarters. It is definitely one of our favorite restaurants. We have never been disappointed with any of meals. The food is excellent, the staff is friendly and helpful, and prices are reasonable for what you get.

Thank Jan B
