Oysters Rockefeller smelled a little fishy but tasted OK, not great. Fried seafood platter was large, scallops did not taste like the real thing, oysters had too much breading, large shrimp tasted good, French fries were OK but too many of them. Fried okra had a good flavor for the time of year.

Captain Tom's Seafood has been a staple in the Kernersville area for many years and continues to serve the same delicious meals as ever. Over the years they have expanded the service to include a full bar and TV for those sports enthusiasts. Each meal is plentiful with a number of combos and something for everyone including grilled cheese for... More

We go often. The food and service are good and the prices are reasonable. Thre is a large selection of seafood but there are other options if you have someone that does not want seafood. I enjoy the large house salad with blackened shrimp but occasional go for a seafood platter. The do have small portions that are nice for... More

We went here on a busy Friday night. The staff were all friendly, and after a moderate wait of about 15 minutes were seated. The broiled seafood is very good, the portions were ample and the hush puppies were some of the best we have eaten. They also have burgers, and a good selection of meals. There were several families... More

Some of the food is good some not so good. The potato and Cheese app was good, children's chicken tenders the kid enjoyed, New Orleans talipia was ok.The service was friendly but slow. 45 min wait to get our appetizers and the room was half empty so not like they were busy. Could be so much more.

Visited with a group of 4 co-workers. Hostess upon entrance wasn't very welcoming but our waitress was better, and very friendly. 4 of the 5 of us felt the food had a strange taste as did the water. I felt the flounder and sweet potato were both very good. Portions were good - especially for the daily specials. All in... More

So the night we pick to go was actually a pretty slow night . The restaurant was not crowded. It also did not have that fishy fried smell must seafood places have. We were served very politely and quickly. I always order oysters my sons a burger. My man did love his tomato based Alfredo. It was a pleasant surprise... More

I suppose if you don't mind greasy, bland seafood this place is for you. I never got anything that tasted good. Service is very slow even though we were the only ones there. I enjoy fresh seafood grilled, blackened, raw, or baked. They might have have something in this category but it wasn't fresh. I'll go to a real seafood... More
