After reading the reviews we just had to try this place out. The place doesn't look like much from the outside but looks are deceiving. We ordered the seafood platter for two and it was excellent. The portions were very generous and we couldn't finish...More

We drop by the cap'n's once or twice every time we're in Chincoteague, and while the place -- it's take-out only -- is a an oven with fans, the food is consistently excellent. It's a good idea to call and order ahead.

We stopped for lunch. There is no indoor dining and it was too hot to sit outside at their tables. So we took our lunch back to our hotel to eat inside in air conditioning. My fish tacos were delicious. You can choose any one...More

We never make a visit to Chincoteague without ordering take-out seafood from Captain Zach's. In season they have the best soft shell crab sandwich on the island. Their oyster poor boy is also worth the trip. Never had a bad meal there.

Ordered their seafood platter which included flounder,clam strips,crab cakes,oysters,scallops and shrimp, it was fresh and delicious. Also ordered a blackened scallop sandwich, highly recommend that. Definitely should make this place a stop if your on Chincoteague Island.

We love Captain Zack's! A variety of seafood choices that never disappoints! This is not an "eat-in" restaurant; however, there are picnic table, games, etc. if you'd like to eat outside. The seafood is always fresh, hot, and delicious!
