Don't know what is going on with this new location they've moved to but the attitude I saw was very poor. The female at the cash register looked and acted like I was the enemy. I would think working in the public area the people would be more friendly. The greeting when a person walks in is the only friendly... More

Visited last night after a trip to the YMCA; very convenient as they're right across the street from each other. Restaurant very clean; was greeted upon arrival; order taken pretty soonafter getting in line but food was brought to table very quickly even ahead of the couple in front of us. Two people came by while we were eating to... More

I visited them when I was in Elizabeth City that weekend and went through the drive thru and ordered the fish tenders meal and it was very delicious. Its much better than Long John Silver's. I go there every time I'm in Elizabeth City. The service was good too.

I bring my client here because she likes the popcorn shrimp lunch special. I prefer the shrimp skewer salad, always yummy.

I have no complaints about the food, but the service in this joint is awful. We went thru the drive-thru to pick up dinner on a typical weeknight. We asked 3 times whether they had put malt vinegar in the bag, and were told "Yes". Got home 15 miles away, and no vinegar. This is honestly about the tenth time... More

As a regular of the Norfolk, VA, 21st location, I am obviously a fan of Captain D's. I was excited to visit the Elizabeth City location prior to seeing a play at the College of the Albemarle. I was surprised to note the windows, every window, to be so dirty as we approached. We speculated that perhaps there had been... More

We were hungry for fish and were short on time. Pulled into this fast food place and were not disappointed. The fish was not overdone at all like many other locations I've gone to. The cod was breaking apart into defined delicate flakes and the flavor was very good. Not the very best I've had but very good for a... More

Service was great and prices were good. This place is much better than a Long John Silvers because it is a lot less greasy and I like the platter choices they have. My dad and I stopped here and we both got a variety platter and I think we tried everything because we left there are full and still had... More

It's OK for a fast food chain seafood restaurant. Service was good, decent value, Quality of food you get what you pay for, average. We had the Boiled white fish and shrimp good choice over the fried stuff, Great to see it on the menu. Good place if you're in a pinch need a seafood fix. After all it's a... More

Food was good and reasonable. Lots of deals to choose from. Platters were not skimpy. Worth the money.
