You want some healthy seafood, then come to Captain D's. Their grilled fish dinner is very good, with rice. I add green beans and broccoli for a more healthy touch. Good place to eat.

Fish sandwich is the best. Better than red lobster or anyone. Coconut shrimp is very good too. And everything is priced great ! Not over priced.

For a fast food restaurant it is one of the better ones. They have "healthy" baked and broiled options with a decent selection of side items. The store is usually clean and the service is about what you would expect - not horrible but not five star dinning good.

Every time I have tried to get something to eat at captain D's, I get frustrated and leave. The service is horrendously slow. I have never in my life been to such a slow fast food establishment. I'm not sure why it takes so long to get a fish sandwich. Not going back.

Don't even bother, It had been quite a while since we had been here and now I know why. The staff is more busy talking with each other about personal problems than taking your order. The restaurant was almost empty and filthy but no one was cleaning, just complaining. I did not finish any portion of my meal, it smelled... More
