we visited 1/23/17. Biscuits had an odd flavor. Slaw tasted bitter. Fish was good. Salad bar was nice. Overpriced for what they served.

The food was very good. I ordered the stuffed flounder and my lady friend ordered the fried shrimp. Both meals were delicious. I really liked their salad bar too. It has a lot to choose from. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive and I liked the rustic nautical decor. I would definitely recommend my friends to dine there.

Captain Joe's is clueless about how to prepare shrimp. I ordered steam shrimp. They were tiny, slimey shrimp with NO seasoning. The meal was beyond disgusting. I don't eat fried food. The other patrons were wiser than me. They has everything on their plates fried. Had to "pick through" the salad bar to find edible pieces. Our waiter was the... More

The food was plentiful but just average tasting. The shrimp and oysters were breaded and a little greasy. The salad bar was free and was good. The waitress was nice but there was no sense of urgency to clean off dirty tables in spite of us being the only customers at the time.

I had a wonderful dinner and drink and the employees are simply awesome. And it was in walking distance from the hotel.

I had scallops and red fish grilled..it was very good and my husband had swai and flounder grilled also very good...our waiter was good and helpful..I feel that some of the other staff should be cleaning off tables of guests that had left and if they drop something it should be picked up..

We paid $42.00 for 2 chopped steaks (over cooked and tasteless) potato and salad. Way over priced. I had to find someone to wait on us. Salad bar was good.

Big sign that says they have the best pork sandwich in town. Maybe they had it years ago, but mine was tougher than leather. My hot dog was pretty good, so there's that.

I had the catfish, it was good. My husband had fried shrimp, he said they were fresh and they tasted good. The restaurant is just so EWWW though - old, very grimy, dust on all surfaces. Price was mid-range but would have been more acceptable with an updated menu and salad bar. The salad bar was a mess, spills sat... More
