“Very slow service, average food”
Review of Captain D's

Captain D's
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 September 2018

We have been to this Captain Ds many times, as it is really the only fast food fish restaurant in Lenoir City. While the food is hit and miss, the service is very slow, particularly from the time you place the order to when it is received. This makes very little sense with a cashier who is not terribly busy and who could retrieve the order, and 4-5 people in the cooking area. Today, we were the first couple in line, and we placed an order for two of the $4.99 specials-- the trio and the Nashville Fish & Shrimp. It took 12 minutes for them to prepare our 2 plates, and another 4 minutes for someone to notice the food was sitting, ready, at the front, then to text us that the food was ready. This was while 2 of the employees in the cooking area were standing around talking while two were preparing the next patron's order. The food was ok, but the Nashville Fish and Shrimp was disappointing, with one tiny piece of very heavily, oversalted fish and tiny, but good, popcorn shrimp. The hush puppies were excellent, and the Trio was pretty good. Unfortunately, the most striking thing about this Captain D's location is the generally ambivalent attitude of the workers to peoples' orders once placed. It's a big disappointment, especially considering that other locations in the metro area are better. If there were another decent alternative for fish in the immediate vicinity, this would be our last visit to this Captain D's.

We have tried this location several times. The drive thru only gets worse. The fish is old, forgotten items. The employees make you feel like a inconvenience. Sad thing years ago, it was our favorite go to.

We were looking forward to a good seafood meal.
Disappointed. Nothing tasted up to par--except maybe the broccoli. The crab cakes were flimsy, not much flavor either. Husband was disappointed with catfish. The hush puppies were grease-filled.

This Captain D's was not up to the standards I am used to at many other Captain D's I have been to, and I eat at Captain D's frequently. The food was very greasy and reminded me a lot of Long John Silver's cooking. The fish I ordered was different from the same menu item I order in other Captain D's.

One of the best fast food restaurants that serves fried catfish. The sides are good and tasty. The baked potato is especially good!! Close to I-75 and HWY 321 exit. Good parking.
