Knowing our favorite Chincoteague spot is closed for the season, we went to Captain Zack's for an early dinner. Softshell Crab Sandwich was better than expected! Two fat juicy soft shell crabs made up a fat juicy sandwich, quite delicious, quite filling. Hush puppies were...More

Always delicious! We order the seafood platter for 2. Almost $40, but hubby and I eat our fill for dinner and leftovers fill us up for lunch the next day and we still didn't finish it all. Great value! And the hush puppies...YUM!

The crab bits were delicious, and the hush puppies were out of this world. All of the seafood appears fresh and delicious.

What a cute little place! We got shucked oysters and clams; both were excellent! The service was friendly and prompt. We enjoyed sitting outside since it was a nice day. Note to non-locals: there is no indoor seating at this restaurant, only picnic tables outside.

Lunch was OK. The seafood soup was excellent; the quesadilla was bland. Dinner choices were very good. We really enjoyed the seafood platter (grilled). The sides, brocolli salad & cole slaw were tasty.

Captain Zack's is really a fish market that also serves fish dishes. With the sand outside, the picnic tables and the beach umbrellas you only need to add the sound of seagulls and the water lapping the shore to imagine that you're at the beach....More

For about 16$ a sandwich, the lobster rolls are a good option if you're craving fresh seafood. I personally like my lobster a little more seasoned but this was not bad! We loved the picnic tables outside, it was a perfect quick stop on our...More
