Saw some other guests enjoying take-out at our hotel, and they were excited to recommend Captain Zack's. We couldn't pull up the menu online so we drove there and were pleasantly surprised at the selection - even for vegetarians and non-seafood eaters! Seafood is fresh, prices are reasonable, and the portions were more than satisfying. The wait was over 45... More

Zack's seafood is a establishment that sells fresh seafood as well as a variety of prepared lunch and lite fare dinners. I had a mahi-mahi fish taco which was delicious and my daughter had a crab cake sandwich also very good (did have a shell piece in it). Thankfully on the day we went it was pleasant to sit outside...

A local had tipped us for this place. Loved their food, and they serve a LOT of it! I had their clam strips with hush puppies, yummy! Again liked the atmosphere here - just take your food outside and sit in the white sand!

Probably would have gotten five stars but I got the clam strips...I have come to the sad conclusion that while I love clams, clam strips are just too much batter. But my family got crab cake sandwiches that were great! The hush puppies were great too!

Yes, if you order on a Friday or Saturday night, be prepared for a 40-60 minute wait. This place is busy because it's popular and the food is cooked to order. Plan ahead. This is a takeout place, so yes, your food will come in take out containers with paper and plastic ware. If you don't pick it up promptly... More

Wow, what else can I say. This place is off the beaten path. Well worth turning off of the main street to go to. You can watch them pulling what ever you ordered out of the fresh fish and making it to order. I had Rock Fish Tacos blackened. Fantastic!!. My wife got shrimp tacos. They were spectacular!!

The people could not have been nicer and the seafood looked super fresh. They put so much Old Bay on everything though it took over the taste & I don't care for Old Bay anyway. We got corn on the side that was not good at all. The salt oysters were good which is what Chincoteague is famous for. I... More

Great takeout food as you head out to the beach. Fresh quality seafood, good service and great value. These folks are well organized. Excellent grilled flounder sandwiches. Excellent chowder. Great tasting hushpuppies. Would go back again.
