My family and I love Cap'n Roy's food! Best Mexican food on the island. They have a good balance of seafood, Mexican food and foods such as pasta and sandwiches. The meat is always very tender! We would recommend this restaurant!

We shared a seafood platter and some calamari. The fumi salad was really good. Service was really good. No complaints on the food. We'd go back.

Looking for a change from the deep fried fare offered in too many places on the island we decided to try Cap'n Roy's for some Mexican.

This was the best fish taco I've had in a long time. Everything about it was good from the corn tortilla to the fish to the cabbage and sauce. The staff were as friendly as ever and service was great. A MUST if you are on the island.

Fish poboy was good. Waitress claimed the fish was "whitefish " think tilapia. The shrimp was also good size and taste. Fries were good. Atmosphere and price were modest. Good service and value. Would go again.
