I haven't eaten here since it was Tides restaurant many moons ago. The place I usually go for ribs on Saturday night dropped them from the special menu and I wound up at the Captains Table. The service was very good and the ribs were beyond belief. I had leftovers for the next morning. I plan to eat here again

If you're looking for a good/fresh seafood meal, I recommend The Captains Table. It's no frills and low key -- and that's meant as a compliment! Quality and service is always reliable; staff is friendly and accommodating; restaurant is clean.....and they serve beer & wine if you'd like a drink with your meal. My husband and I always eat here... More

We had a good meal. Fish was cooked well all though could have used a little more seasoning. Portion sizes were good we left feeling full. Service was kind and efficient.

Very good cuisine. I got the combo plate with fried flounder and fried fan tail shrimp. It was very filling!

We enjoyed well cooked local seafood. Ben had blue fish and Jane NC Shrimp. Both were excellent and the sides were OK. We particularly liked the Senior portions. Plenty of food for us at a reasonable price. Very busy but we were served promptly.

Food was great. Staff super friendly. Senior portions perfect. Wish we had returned rather than trying other places.

We had crab cakes for every meal while visiting OBX and these were our favorite! Excellent meal and very friendly staff.

We have been here several times and were always very pleased with our meal. One reason we traveled to Buxton this time was to dine here, but we were disappointed that they were not open yet on Sundays. I should have checked the webpage. We will be back.

Preordered lobsters. Supposed to be 2 pounds but were smaller for sure. Clam chowder was mediocre. Waitress ever asked how things were or if we wanted refills of anything. Asked for butter for our bread and baked potato. We were given a spread mix instead. Midway through when we were able to get her attention we asked again for real... More

A Tad above Average in food area, expensive, but family atmosphere and a full menu ...We either have bad timing but we can't seemed to figure out when their open or what time they close..it seems to fluctuate with the amount of business their doing at the time..
