We were looking for something less expensive for lunch and wanted something other than burgers again, so we thought we would give this a try. We all had the $4.99 full meal deal which included 12 fried shrimp, hush puppies and two sides. Everything tasted good and was better that expected. Since we all ordered the same thing, we can't...

My husband and I ate at Captain D's while vacationing in Florida. The food was pretty good, for a fast food place! I had shrimp and my husband had fish. The portions are average and everything tasted fresh. They have a nice selection of sides. We dine out frequently, especially on vacation and there are so many choices!

My wife and I had the 12 piece shrimp dinner. I've been to places and paid 3 times the amount I spent here and the shrimp wasn't as good. Good fried shrimp has a distinct fresh taste to it , and this place nailed it. Some of the best I ever had.

Captain D's offers their signature fried fish, but they also offer lots of other options that are better than the typical fast food, especially if you are looking to eat healthy. They have a great baked tilapia dinner that includes a large portion of nicely seasoned fish and comes with rice as well as two sides of your choosing plus... More

Friends recommended Captain D's as a great fast food restaurant with healthy choices. My husband and I tried it and thought it was great! We both had grilled fish - mine was the lemon pepper white fish and his was the blackened tilapia. I was able to have broccoli and a salad as sides. We each had a soft drink... More

This is a fast food restaurant serving white fish, shrimp, salmon, tilapia, butterfly shrimp, surf & turf plus some chicken dishes. There were three of us and we all had the 2 piece battered dipped fish plate. This comes with hush puppies and 2 sides. Choices are – fries, coleslaw, side salad, green beans, okra, broccoli, baked potato or corn.... More

Food was cold. The staff was not friendly. One of the workers had either a friend or family there and more concerned about taking care of them. Soda machine was not working right. There was no one else in the restaurant except the friends of the employee. It has been years since I went to a Captain Ds. I don't... More

The restaurant is very dated. Hard to maneuver a wheelchair into restaurant. Food quality has went down. The fried shrimp looked as if someone sat on it...very flat. There was four of us and we were all disappointed. The fish is an oversized fish stick.

We eat here on a regular bases because this is one of my wife favorite place to dine. Have good food at times when the microwave works good enough to heat it up. The tea is great.
