Got more food than another Calabash restaurant. We had 6 adults. Food was great, but one member's food had set and was warm. The waitress immediately address the matter and brought a whole new plate-hot and plentiful.

First time eating here and it wasn't bad at all. The fish was fresh, the tea was really good but I wasn't a fan of the coleslaw. Overall not bad at all.

It's on the waterway, so it has a beautiful view. The staff is friendly, and the service is great, and food is delicious.

The waitress was friendly. That's the best I can say about this place. It was old and a little dingy. The food was tasteless and overlooked. Wine selection was a joke -- they offers 1 brand. One very horrible brand that I've never heard of....More

Captain Johns never fails to provide the best hush puppies, shrimp and fish!!! We took friends with us this last visit and they raved about the grouper and grilled tuna! You never walk away hungry or disappointed!

Depending on the time of year quiet is kinda hard to define. Most of the late spring thru labor day everywhere is busy, so quiet is tuff. There are quite a few very nice golf courses in the area with nice club... More
