Good place to eat and they have great fish tacos. A lot of locals eat there. The prices are also reasonable and the service is fast.

We have hit Cap'n Roy's 3 times in the last two months of our stay here for the winter. The food is great, and the service is top notch.! Roy's taco is bigger than the plate! Pasta dishes are all excellent. Casual dinning and very...More

Went there for some of their Mexican food. It was so good, we went back the next night and had the fish platter special. Portions were generous and very good. The prices were also very reasonable.

I've been here six months and I just love this place!!! It's so delicious I could eat here everyday. I always get the fish tacos but my friends have had just about everything and it's all good. HIGHLY recommend!!

Had a nice lunch. Above average but not the "best". Would return however. Good value for what get. They specialize in seafood which we did not have.

A lot South Padre Island restaurants choose a tex-mex and seafood menu combination. It sounds odd but it's very common. The enchiladas were delicious but I'm use to the chips and salsa with my tex-mex.

We ate lunch at Cap'n Roys. I got fajita plate and husband got a Mexican everything plate. He really liked his plate. the chicken for the fajitas were tiny strips of meat so they were dry. The flavor wasn't great.

Crab is not a common item on any restaurant menu on SPI. If it is, it is most likely a frozen, imported variety. Stick with the local fish and shrimp! You'll be hooked.
