Its a seafood market and serves very fresh seafood. Special that night was Fresh Salmon belly over salad - delicious. Oysters were from three different places and tasty. Partner had the grouper and was very happy with her selection.

Is this the same Capt Jims that in the 60's & 70's used to be on Biscayne Blvd. at about 159th st? He periodically would sell the restaurant, it would go downhill, then he'd reposess it, build it back up again, and a couple of years later would repeat the process.
