Took my 6 & 8 year old girls here. Service and food were both excellent. Try the daily special, there are some good seafood options if wanting to eat form the menus as well. Kid friendly.

There's nothing at Captain Roy's that you can order that you won't fall in love with. Hands-down this is a Hidden local spot worth having every time! I would highly recommend cap'n Roys
