We had take out. We tried to call but they must have forgot that we were on the line. So we went to them. Food is okay. Prices are a little high for the quality. Family really enjoyed the scallops.

This is a small hole in the wall restaurant in a shack-like building, but it's full of fresh seafood in this small waterside town. Dining is outdoors, picnic style, with small umbrella tables on sand and a few board-type games for child entertainment. No air-conditioning...More

Fish tacos were delicious. You choose your fish from the case, which is their fresh catch of the day. Fish can be blackened if you prefer. Sides are great. Ask for the broccoli substitution.

We stopped here for lunch. Luckily it was not too hot out, so we could eat outside at the picnic tables. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Note there is no indoor dining. They serve a lot of local seafood-the fish tacos were amazing!!

After reading the reviews we just had to try this place out. The place doesn't look like much from the outside but looks are deceiving. We ordered the seafood platter for two and it was excellent. The portions were very generous and we couldn't finish...More

We drop by the cap'n's once or twice every time we're in Chincoteague, and while the place -- it's take-out only -- is a an oven with fans, the food is consistently excellent. It's a good idea to call and order ahead.
