We have a family gathering at Captain Bob's and it was terrific. This is NC country cooking with chicken pastry, fried chicken and NC BBQ being the best. The Buffet has something for everyone. The lady that was our waitress was exceptional. She took care of our every need and was super friendly. If you want lots of good country... More

Buffet is the way to go! It's hard to beat the BBQ and fried chicken. I've even had fried pickle fried here and they were to die for!!! :) Southern, Country cooking at its best!

My family and I came to eat at this restaurant today. Everything we ordered was great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone and will be back very soon. The dessert was very good and my waitress was awesome.

The price to me for such a small Buffett is rather high. It is good home made food. The fried catfish is very good. But I can get an un limited Buffett of a much larger variety of food at a Chinese place. Therefore I think this place is a little too high in price. But it doesn't stop people... More

If you have never had Carolina BBQ, suggest you stop here for a sandwich or even the Buffet, you will not be disappointed. Definitely a plus if you are hungry.

Ive eaten at Cpt Bob's three times, always take out. In each case, the take out came pretty quickly and the prices were affordable. Beyond that..., I don't think I've ever got a correct order from Bob's. First time I ordered three sandwich's, fries, slaw, hush puppies. Never got the hush puppies and to this day, I have no idea...

Very popular with many locals. Only God knows why. I asked one customer why he went there and he said they give alot of food. Personally, when I don't want a normal portion, why would I want a large portion? Unless you grew up eating this and know you like it, skip a meal before choosing this restaurant.

This is perhaps THE best kept secret in the world of NC BBQ. I never pass through Hertford without stopping - and ALWAYS bring some home!
