I found Captain James on GROUPON and so I purchased $80 food credit for $38. Their prices are very fair. We had the lobster mac & cheese stuffed soft pretzel, the special of the night mussels, the signature crab cake entree & the seafood platter with lobster. EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING!!! I have never been more satisfied with seafood from start... More

Two nights ago I took a party of 12 to Captain James Restaurant. Now, I must be clear that THIS was at their RESTAURANT establishment and not the CRABHOUSE across the street. Our group was looking for a varied menu of seafood and non-seafood so, as organizer I had done research on the restaurant operation as Chesapeake Bay crab houses... More

We went there for dinner. The place is interesting and clean. We ordered XL crabs, corn and baked potatoes. Everything was delicious. I will recommend this place to all Baltimore visitors!

My birthday dinner was amazing. Stuffed lobster was great! The restaurant was extremely crowded, but the waitstaff was on point and very nice! Will definitely return!

Came here for a rehearsal dinner recently as an out of town wedding guest. The staff was so nice and accommodating - and very attentive to our party of about 25 guests. They offered three options for dinner that evening - crab cakes, chicken and a filet. Most of our table opted for the crab cakes and they were absolutely... More

This is my favorite place for Crab Cakes!! Real lump crab with just the right amount of seasoning and not packed with fillers. I always choose their grilled vegetable of the day and the rice which both complement the crab cake. My husband and I shared oysters on the half shell and they were very fresh. They are always busy... More

Food here isn't memorable. Nothing we ordered was out of this world, but we had a Groupon, so we gave it a go. All of the staff was super nice, and willing to offer their opinion of what was good. There are plenty of options, but none that really stuck out. I would have been upset had we paid full... More

Used Groupon and came here to eat. Staff was friendly. Inside the restaurant was small so they were unable to accommodate other larger parties. We ordered the boiled seafood platter. The flavor of the food was decent, some of the portions were a bit small for what it was. The food was served hot, but lacked seasoning. I would go... More
