I have no idea what the heck happened to this place, but the service is lousy, and that is because I want to keep this clean. Never Ever, again will I set foot here. Asked for a take out box 20-25 minutes ago, still waiting. Took 45-50 minutes to get all our food. Terrible service.

I was in your restaurant on Sat Feb 4th. My sister was visiting from Florida and your restaurant was one of her favorites when she lived here.

Absolutely the best crabs around. The shrimp is second to none. Prices are very good and the bartenders and servers are great. Love going there.

I love Cap'n Cats but they need to offer more sides. The seafood is great but I'd like more than just seafood. Needs more variety. I still love it though and the piano guy is my highlight! Love him! Great atmosphere!

Stopped in to have a couple of drinks and get something to go. Service was good, drinks, nothing to rave about. It's basically all about seafood, and it can be pricey. They only sale as it is on the menu whether it's to eat in or to go.

Our second visit only because we ate there a number of years ago, so this place requires a visit when back in the area. Soup, crab legs and tiramisu for dessert!
