The food was horrible,... More

We love to eat at Captain's Cap when we come back to visit. We were pretty disturbed by our experience today. We dined early as we needed to get on the road. My 13 year old ordered a corn dog but was told she couldn't get it because she was over 10 (children's menu item). She doesn't eat seafood and... More

I don't miss coming to Captain's Cap everytime I'm in NC. Highlights include the Slaw Bar (really a salad bar with some great slaw), the fried fish and the hush puppies. The place is huge so it's great for a crowd. The service is really friendly and fast. LOVE this place.

My wife loves this place. In fact, we don't go to any "fish camp" unless it's the Captain's Cap in Belmont. Wonderful shrimp, and my wife loves the flounder. The salad bar is exceptional and unusual for a fish camp, but is well done and continually restocked for the line of customers eager to try the salad bar and both... More

So many menu choices! It would take years to try it all! Lots of options for seniors at reduced prices - the broiled selections are quite good!

This is our families favorite seafood restaurant.My husband always gets the all-you-can-eat fish and I always get the fantail shrimp. You can get fries, baked potato, onion rings or sweet potato fries with a choice of slaw or a trip to the salad bar. We love their salad bar which is an option that most seafood places in the area...

We have been going to the Captain's Cap on LInwood Road for years & are never disappointed with the fresh seafood & service! The staff works very hard to provide excellent service. The salad bar is kept stocked & clean at all times, even when they are crowed. The food is hot & delicious & we highly recommend Captain's Cap... More

I've been here many times and I have yet to be disappointed. My current visit was no different. The restaurant is designed with a fish camp feel. There are tables and booths for seating. Upon arriving, we were greeted and seated quickly. The waitress was prompt, nice, and friendly. The menu has a broiled and fried selection of seafood. A... More
