We both got the grilled fish and shrimp and it was wonderful. Also, try their camoronitas diabolitas. They are award winning and you can see why. Definitely worth it. Our total bill after tip was under $40

We hadn't been to Cap'n Roys so we thought we'd drop in for lunch. I had the fried shrimp basket with fries and coleslaw (Fumi salad) which is awesome. The whole meal was. I don't normally like fries, but these were the best I've had,...More
