My husband and I have been crab lovers since we were able to ride bikes and we've eaten our fair share all over the world. By far, Captain James has the absolute best crabs for the best prices! Yasou!

This is a great place to just sit and relax. The food is good and the staff is friendly. We took the water taxi and it dropped us off and picked us up at the restaurant dock. The crabs were delicious.

Outside dining was fun. Crabs did not disappoint. Staff was helpful and knowledgeable about eating the crabs that made my table mates excited for the experience.

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!!!
