On 1/9/24, I had ordered a chittling dinner. It came with macaroni and cheese, hush puppies and candied yams. The food was cooked to perfection and it was so good!!!! I will be back.

Fresh from Minnesota and the first place my Auntie took me to. My Soul Food palate has realigned back to East Coast cuisines. 😂❤️ Seriously, love this place. Thank you, Capital Seafood Market. You won't be disappointed! I forgot twice to snap photos of what I had. Fried okra 👍🏽 Fried Fish 👍🏽 Mac and cheese 👍🏽 Candied yams 👍🏽

I always enjoy my food from there!!! Mr. Clarence and his staff are always very pleasant to me and one of the staff members call me Ms. P😊, she recognizes me when I enter and I love that. Occasionally they may get my order wrong but when/if that happens they are quick to rectify the situation without any trouble. I can't get there as often as I used to, but the service I receive never changes...Love It!!!

The fried croaker fish dinner was so tasty and fresh. Everything is cooked to order, and fresh. I also got the red velvet cake. They have the best red velvet cake! You got a try it. I did a carry out, because they don’t really have a place to sit and dine. However, just up the street, the City of Durham North Carolina maintains an open public play park with tables to sit and eat. It is not very far from Capital seafood.
