A local institution, and a great seafood dinner awaits. Fresh seafood, nicely prepared, and a large variety of options await. And the added bonus is the service. Tip-top! Easy to find right off US-1, and ample parking. Captain's Tavern has been around a long time, and after you spend a little time here, it will be obvious why they have... More

Our overall favorite restaurant !!!! Over 30 years of some of the best fish/shrimp/lobster and specials - a very comfortable nautical setting with five fish tanks creating a relaxing atmosphere. The Captain (now retired), and his outstanding wife Chef Audrey and Chef Dale have built one of the finest restaurants in all South Florida. We are fortunate to have become... More

Best oysters in the area. All the fish is fresh , very fresh! There are weekly lobster specials but the best is the "Caribbean" which is probably Australian if you ask me. Share this lobster because they are huge and taste wonderful. The crowds thin out at 8:30 pm or so. Wines are fairly priced too.

We had dinner there with another couple. We had a very short wait for a table. Appetizers came out promptly; the stone crab claws were excellent. Three main course meals came out; one assorted seafood platter was missing due to the lobster being over-cooked. While I applaud the server's judgement to hold back the platter, I have to give a...

Sorry to say but this was a terrible lunch. First of all "who keeps old carpet on the floor of a seafood restaurant". The food was terrible and the prices were outrageous. The server had personality minus. All of this resulted in a huge bill and a feeling of having thrown my money in the trash. ( not to mention... More
