The bar is lucite with imbeded seashells. There is an indoor waterfall with carved pelicans which are cute. The fish is fresh and I can not say enough about the fresh bread. A bit pricey for what is gotten

We ate upstairs on the outside deck. Had an awesome view of the ocean. The bartender was also our waitress (was busier than they had anticipated and were trying to call additional employees in). She gave such great service and was extremely friendly even though they were very busy. Food was really good and so was the mojito!!

When you walk into. Place and the furniture is all stacked up and there's 6 customers on a Saturday evening......walk out. I didnt and I regret it. The service was super slow. The poor gals had to walk up and down a huge flight of stairs to service the enormous dining room which also had only a handful of customers,... More

The nautical-themed restaurant was very busy, even for a Tuesday evening in the off-season. Families are welcome. The seafood is excellent, portions are plentiful, menu selections are numerous, the service good, and the hush puppies to die for. This restaurant has been a favorite of mine whenever I visit the area. I highly recommend it.

We stopped here for lunch a few days after hurricane Matthew. Unfortunately, the upper deck was kind of destroyed so we sat "beach level". The food was great and our waitress was exceptional in helping our sisters with her special dietary needs.

Came off Cocoa Beach for lunch and decided on Captain J's. Service was good and so was the food although my wife thought the coconut shrimp were a bit greasy. My Chicken Caesar was very good. It was over 100F on the beach so we were hoping to cool down in CJ's but it was nearly as warm in there!... More
