THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE I WILL BUY FISH FROM. I love the atmosphere and I always feel so welcomed. I used to buy the prepared food but the consistency in quality started to change and that happens with a lot of places for various reasons so please try it anyway. It was delicious at some point. Now my fresh fish, it’s non-negotiable, Capital Seafood is the only place that will get my business. They are fast and efficient when it comes to cleaning the fish and always have a great variety. I LOVE IT HERE. And no lol I wasn’t bribed for my review. This is 100% from the h e a r t.

You can buy fresh seafood there. And have them cook it to perfection for a decent price. Definitely come here if you are buying in bulk or if you just a little. They can help all size orders. Family owned and operated.

I give this place 10 thumbs up! My opinion! I'm from Charlotte but I had work related business in Durham NC. I was hungry for some home cooking and the first place my eyes paid attention to was this Capital seafood sign. But the kicker was the parking lot that was over crowded. To make this short. I ordered a plate of pig feet with Mac n cheese and candy yams!! People I can not put into words the way this food tasted. Good,great, delicious, fabulous, melted n my mouth,too good for the price,! Seriously people I wanted to ask them if they could move to Charlotte NC, I have never tasted pug feet that burst open in your mouth!! I couldn't help talking about it while I was stuffing my mouth!! Ths lace is a must!! And the prices are good, not too expensive, they have full meals under $10!! And it's hard to find great food at a low price!! Keep doing what you do Capital!! I enjoyed every drop of it!!

Quintessential seafood market with a delicious cafe. This place has everything we need for our seafood recipes. The staff is so friendly and helpful. They answered all our questions and the oysters we got were too notch!

The staff was nice! The flounder and shrimp was very good! The vegetables needed a little more seasoning. The yams needed more butter, sugar, and cinnamon. Overall, great experience!

I l love being able to go and get fresh Seafood Raw and the also cook there but the store owner needs to get some more respectable cashier's to serve customers. They were rude and had nasty mouths and getting sassy with Customers. Those types of issues affect your business.

Great, delicious food 😋 👌, with great prices. Seasoned to a T, with nice size portions. Not enough parking spaces, but you can make it work. Wide variety of food 😋 choices to choose from. Don't waste your time at J&J's, or C&H cafeteria. You can get fresh seafood, soul food 😋 and and any other food your heart desires. Great staff as well.

Good options for seafood or soul food. I think their portions for sides could be bigger. I got popcorn shrimp, fried oysters, and fish with 2 sides and hush puppies for about $20.00. Prices are great and food is even better.

Went in to pickup fresh shrimp and live blue crab. Was surprised to see they also had live crawfish! Went home and had an amazing boil with friends. Great selection of seafood. Would recommend getting there early. Lots of people grabbing the crabs up!
