Fuimos seis a la mesa, mis tres nietos, mi hijo, uno de mis yernos y yo. El sólo llegar al sitio fue agradable, corría una brisa agradble y estaba nublado. La encantadora mesera nos trajo una bandeja con cangrejos de los tres tamaños disponibles. Comenzamos...More

I went there twice in early October: the first time, a taxi driver suggested it to me and I liked the seating by the water. The crab cake was good enough, but in an additional order, the mussels were microscopic, who knows why. (the next...More

We went to Capitan James for breakfast. Coffee was fresh. Everyone's breakfast was very good. The staff was very attentive to our families needs.

We recently attended a crab feast here, group event. The set ups were basic, some cheese cubes, a cold pasta and some chicken wings. As a non hard crab picker it was a tough go. The crab soup was ok, the corn was fine. My...More

Friends swear by the place, so gave it a try. Ambiance is cheap pirate. Service is indentured slavery. Food is mediocre. I found it pricey for the quality. The portions are large, so for hungry folks or those who think more is better, this is...More

I have 2 boys, ages 10 & 7. There is no children's menu currently on-line, but there are plenty of good selections on the kid's menu, such as fish, burgers, and chicken nuggets. My boys had a great time here!!!
