I took my wife for lunch. The restaurant was quite, the service was prompt and friendly and the food was fresh and delicious. We had Stone crabs plus hushpuppies, spinach prepared in two different ways and a large yellowtail fish. The quality and test of all was superior. Also I had local craft beer which reinforce the theme of the... More

It has been a few years since we have been to Captain JIm’s, and being in the mood for fresh fish and not wanting to drive too far. I suggested that we go back there as we had always like the place. We did not know that the place had changed ownership since we were last there. We found this... More

Sorry you were not happy with your experience. Let me help you understand some of what you say here. First, the entire restaurant was renovated. The area you believe to look as it was during your last visit is completely different, every square inch. It in no way resembles the old restaurant, from ceiling to floor. As for the clams,... More

Awesome food and service. Where the locals eat! Off the beaten path in an unassuming little strip of shops.

We go to Captain Jim's whenever we want fresh fish perfectly prepared. This is a no frills inexpensive fresh, fresh fish place. The chef prepares nightly specials and there is a large variety of fish and shellfish options. You cannot get a better fish meal no matter how much you spend or how much you are willing to pay for...

This is a quaint seafood place that has been around for 20+ years and a local favorite. The interior is very plain and not that big. There is an attached seafood market. The ingredients are fresh. I would recommend the crab salad - a nice size portion of real and fake crab that tastes good.

We used to go frequently. Now with new owner service and food still good but overpriced for this restaurant.

Please let us know where you can find fresh quality seafood prepared as we do at less expensive prices; we would be interested to know. Also, we are not new owners, we purchased Captain Jim's nearly 3 years ago and assume you noticed the extensive... More

Don't come here for ambiance...come for the food. It's actually a fish market and restaurant so you can take away or dine in. You can pick out the crabs or fish you want. The crabs are good! Far better and less expensive than the famous crab place on Miami Beach. Make sure to ask the server which you should order...large... More

Every time we eat at Captain Jim we are impressed by the quality, tasteful prep, correct pricing, very hygienic conditions, no smell of fish and super friendly service BY ALL. Ask for Yvonne and you will immediately feel at home. You try once and you will come back for ever.

My family and I just finished our meal but the sour taste of the poor customer service we received couldn't be washed away. It's the day after Christmas and my family and I was wrapping up what was a busy day. Life with with three children means you're always on the go. This evening we decided to order out. My... More

WE are sorry your experience was not to your liking. As it is clearly explained, groupon is for DINE IN ONLY. We made an exception in your case as you asked for one. We did that as a favor. There was a large party going on when you arrived. As you should imagine, our dine in guests expect a certain... More
