This place may not look like much, but the food is pretty good! We got complementary hushpuppies upon sitting, and our waiter was very attentive and helpful. I ordered the clam strips and they were very good, if only a bit overdone. Would definitely recommend...More

While in the OBX my husband wanted to get some fried fish and The Captains Table was the only place in the area that didn't use peanut oil. Unfortunately this was the only good thing about this restaurant. The food was dry and had no...More

I had fried clam strips, fries and baked apples. Clams tasted same as prebreaded frozen from a box. Apples were a smidge away from being warm apple sauce. Hushpuppies were bland. My daughter had the crab bisque and fried oysters. Bisque was ok. The last...More
