Its a seafood market and serves very fresh seafood. Special that night was Fresh Salmon belly over salad - delicious. Oysters were from three different places and tasty. Partner had the grouper and was very happy with her selection.

All I can say is excellent. The service is attentive and the waitstaff is very knowledgeable. They start you off with a little complimentary crab salad with bread. It is addicting. I ordered the grilled snapper filet with steamed vegetables and my husband ordered grilled grouper with Captain's rice. Both fish dishes were cooked perfectly; the fish was flavorful and... More

Definitely off the beaten path, Captain Jim's is worth the trip. Fabulous food, great staff and service. They also have a market off the side of the restaurant to buy fresh seafood. Tried the Stone crab claws and they were delicious. Also had shrimp and grits, and grilled yellowtail snapper. Captain Jim's was featured on Anthony Bourdain's Places to Eat... More

We visited with 2 adults and a teen. We had Jumbo Shrimp (grilled), beer battered prawns and Snow crab legs. All tasted great. Lots of crab legs. Prawns are huge but not a large quantity. I traded rice for chips so was less filling but still good. The cost is high but you pay for quality and fresh. Decent and... More

A great local seafood place located in an unassuming strip mall in North Miami. Try the shrimp and grits or the daily fresh catch. The service is second to none! Even the owner mingled with us. Come as you are. No pretentiousness at this place. Well worth the cab ride from wherever you are staying in Miami. Definitely on our... More
