The restaurant is cute, with a nautical theme and porthole windows. It is very noisy and it is hard to have a conversation with people at your table. There were five of us on a Friday night. Service was friendly and reasonably prompt. Our meal...More

Nice atmosphere but meal just so so. If you are visiting MD splurge and enjoy the crab cake or hard shells.

We enjoyed our dinner here. The crab cake was very good. My husband did not care for the cream of crab soup. The service was excellent.

We had 0 complaints. This was one of the best Resturant's we have been to in years. Maryland has the freshest seafood and Capitan James brings it to you in the best way it can be prepared. You will not be disappointed.

I was recommend to eat at this place for the all you can eat crabs at $32 per person. We get handed a ton of crabs, a mallet and a knife and was told to enjoy! BUT... how the heck do you open a crab?...More

I have 2 boys, ages 10 & 7. There is no children's menu currently on-line, but there are plenty of good selections on the kid's menu, such as fish, burgers, and chicken nuggets. My boys had a great time here!!!

I don'know. But I will never eat in that restaurant again based on the way they treated me & my family. Also, the food does not taste good. I only went to this restaurant to get the Lobster and they could not even... More
