The woman behind the counter was so sweet, so accommodating, and so patient that I feel guilty not rating this place with 5 stars. Unfortunately I have to agree with the folks who said that the seafood is greasy, way over breaded, and the portion small. Looking at the reviews you would think that there are two restaurants here. One... More

Super casual -- almost diner-like atmosphere. My sister and nephew say the hamburgers are terrific. I wouldn't know. There are a lot of places that sell a good burger. Captain Seas sells good seafood. I can't see any reason to order anything else. There's nothing fancy about it, but it's all fresh, good and quite tasty. In addition to the... More

Had been coming here for soft shell crabs when in season. Let down this visit. The sales person forgot my drink. Had to ask for catsup for the table. Food was not as good. Maybe because they were busy. I guess can't be good all the time.

We had clam strips and they were very very good. We also had scallops. The scallops were huge, but very watery with lots of breading, (I didn't mind the excess breading, hubby did though) not much seasoning, needed a little something more. I added salt, though I rarely add salt to my meal. Overall a very good, reasonably priced seafood... More

Tuesday July 11. Fish & Chips (1) and Crabcake Special (1). Not an experience to ensure a return visit: batter too thick, fish fresh, fries terrible. Crabcake "OK" July 12. Went to Big Y Meriden: Haddock and Chips. Ah, the joy! NOT MORE COSTLY. Sat in car, ate dinner. I will stick to 'Take Out' from Big Y for F&C.

Quite a variety of seafood, partial to their scallop roll, fish sandwich and lobster roll. Save money and don't the fries - they are not that good. Have also enjoyed their hot dogs and burgers. I am not a soda drinker, but they serve white birch, which is a favorite of mine. The service is quick and the people are... More

Not much to look at, the interior is definitely dated. I go here for lunch on Saturday. I have never had better fried clams even on the shoreline. Just ask for extra tarter as they tend not to give enough. Hot dogs as good as you could expect. Would like to see free refills on drinks but other than that... More

Frequented this place a few times, and they have the best fried fish in New England, not just ct. Better than the clam shacks in Maine or mass.

The friendly staff had a smile from the moment we walked in. For their service I give them five stars. For the food... three stars! The portions were big, but the taste was just ok. We loved the skinned fries. The kids menu was also nice. It comes with your choice of one entree, drink, fries and ice cream.
