We both got the grilled fish and shrimp and it was wonderful. Also, try their camoronitas diabolitas. They are award winning and you can see why. Definitely worth it. Our total bill after tip was under $40

We found this restaurant jewel via trip advisor and it was excellent! My husband had a quesadilla filled with steak, Mom had fried oysters with "the best fries" and I had the shrimp bacon with their special cabbage salad and huge baked potato. Staff was very friendly and aimed to please.

The food was made when ordered and excellent. I had the Cap'n Roy taco (huge!), my wife had the blackened seafood platter (exceptional). The ceviche and coleslaw... More

We hadn't been to Cap'n Roys so we thought we'd drop in for lunch. I had the fried shrimp basket with fries and coleslaw (Fumi salad) which is awesome. The whole meal was. I don't normally like fries, but these were the best I've had, ever, anywhere. Also ordered tacos. Thumbs up there as well as the Mexican plate. The... More
