My husband and I both got the fish and shrimp special, and although the food was good, they got my order wrong, and just dumped the wrong item in the trash, although I had never touched the plate. I hate waste.

You never know what you will get when you stop off the highway to eat, but the Captain D's off I20 west bound in Ruston, La has the best fish plates and kids chicken meals. Their broccoli is steaming hot and fresh and their Mac and cheese tasted homemade. I can't say enough about the staff either. From the "hello... More

We stopped here for lunch. I hadn't had Captain D's in a few years. The food is really decent. The fish & shrimp lunch special for $5 is a great deal. It also comes with two sides! The food is served fresh and a little greasy, but that's what makes is good!

We do not have a Captain D in Illinois so I love to eat at Captain D's when I come to Louisiana. Good eating!

The $5 dinners are very, very good deals when you are on a budget and want fast and good food. Two large fillets of extra crispy cod with fried okra, fluffy hush puppies came on one plate. Our other plate had a doz. shrimp with sides, so we shared our plates to get the variety we like. You have options... More

Returning to Ruston on I-20 I saw a sign showing businesses at next exit. Captain D's was on the sign and it had been years since I had seen one. I am here on business from Texas and don't recall seeing any there. Pulling up the place looked deserted and I had to pull by window to see someone inside.... More
