My husband and I go here often to split the whitefish and shrimp platter. Plenty of food for each of us. Their bread sticks are the best! Friendly staff

Prefer this store to any other location. The fish tenders are consistently a great portion. I usually take out but drive through service is pleasant.

I really enjoy going to this Captain D's the food is really good and well worth it for the price and they always have specials. If you want to eat in the dining room it's pretty large I have always been able to find a place to sit. They also have a large communal table in the center for large families or groups.

Food was very good, and staff was super-friendly. Green beans could have been a tad warmer.

The fish was so fresh and hot!!!!!! I'm so glad I got the lobster balls because they were so delicious!!! My sister in law referred me to this place. They were a little pricey but it's worth it. And this was my first time too.

I went through the drive-thru with two screaming children in the back saying their orders at the same time; also, I went inside to order my food because I wanted to experience the dine-in service. But at the time, it was take-out only. The server was very patient with the screaming kids and gave us time to get them situated and make our order. She waited patiently without rushing us but in a timely manner like a manager. She offered condiments, excellent customer service, answered questions and was polite and kept the line moving very proficiently. So, I decided to go inside to see how service would be. I saw her and asked her was she a manager, she replied, "No". I told her she worked professionally just like a manager as she handled stress and customers very professionally. The staff member is named, "Patrice". I commend her and the rest of the staff at Captain D's for having an excellent staff, and the food is excellent and affordable. I always come back.

My wife and I every so often eat at Captain's D's. Everytime we go the line goes quickly and the food is always hot 🔥. The customer service is really good always asking us what else we need before leaving. We are never disappointed. May they continue their good service.

Good food, but drive thru and take-out only. Reasonable prices and quick service. I'll go back when I'm in the area.

I go to Captain D's sometime because my mom loves this place. She loves the fish sandwiches in the crab cakes. And she absolutely has to have those cracklings lol

Today was probably my best experience at this Captain D's! I purchased the family size 10 piece battered fish dinner. The order was ready within 10 minutes and everything tasted great. The cashier was super friendly as well.

I don't know how fresh the food was because of the gas pain for two days I won't be going back. But the store was clean and crew look like they wanted to be at work, I love that they wore the mask.

Picked up two dinners. It was very good. The fried fish was golden brown so you know they take care of the oil properly. Used post mates to order, didn't get my email until after I picked up the order but they did and that's what counts.

Popcorn shrimp was awful! Salmon good. Shrimp was all breading. Service pretty good as usual. Wish they would learn how to properly cook lightly breaded shrimp that doesn't break my teeth.

Descent service. Seemed like forever to take my order! After about 15 minutes I finally got to order. They were polite though, and I did get my food pretty fast after order. Food was good, so I do recommend if there not busy!

Food was good and hot. Came out pretty quick. As we were waiting we went towards the dining room, the manager, Nancy, remarked to another employee, but loudly enough for us to hear, "I hope they know it's to go." Of course we did as signs were clearly posted and there were chairs on top of the tables.

Best Captain D's ever. Food is always done to perfection. Very tasty. We travel 30 miles out of our way to eat at this particular restaurant on Roxboro St. In Durham, NC. Friendly service as well as good food.

Love to come here for stuffed crab! The gentleman that works the drive through is so friendly and always making us laugh! We eat in the parking lot so the food is good and hot! The manager even stopped by to see if we needed anything! Food fast places need more people like the ones here!!!

First I must say my daughter and I enjoyed our dinner when we finally got it. I ordered through postmate for me to pick up cause I needed to be somewhere.. I was on my way when postmate messaged me to say order was ready and I should wait outside and they'll bring it....hmm I would've waited all day. Went in and waited for a chance to ask for it. That was when they started cooking. SMH

I come here often. The staff is always responsive to my needs and kind. The food is always delicious, if you'd like a recommendation, my personal favorite is a grilled blackened salmon. There are a lot of sauce options, so don't be afraid to experiment. But the D's dipping sauce is a MUST if you're getting fries as a side. If you're in the mood for desert, the funnel cakes sticks are seriously good. Can't think of anywhere else to something like it.(don't forget the caramel) Pro tip: ask for some lemon and add it to your grilled fish, it makes it taste even better!

Ok chain fried seafood. Decent, friendly staff. Mostly fried stuff. Not haute cuisine, but ok when you want some seafood but don't have a lot of cash. Also serves a decent number of vegetables.

Fast and super friendly service on drive thru. All the food was delicious. We had clam strips and shrimp, funnel cake sticks, batter dipped fish family meal with mac n cheese and fries and an order of green beans. Would recommend all. The green beans are peppery so if you have an aversion to black pepper you wouldn't want those. But overall I would say much better than any fast food fish and fixings you can find in the triangle area!

Typical Captain D's food. Tasty and filling. Very importantly, friendly and gracious people behind the counter and on the floor made it an enjoyable evening. Definitely going back!

It was busy but customers were taken good care of. The food we ordered was to go I tell you it delicious!!!💯We were given more than enough tartar sauce, ketchup, & lemon juice. Napkins were freely given for the two meals we ordered. Staff was very considerate & courteous, wait time was not too long considering cooking fish, shrimp & fries.👌👌👌💕

I've never had a problem with captain D. But tonight I went to the restaurant and there was a customer who had a service dog with her. The dog was small so she had the dog in her arms,and then took the blanket out to fold it up. She never washed her hands. She went to the stand that holds the cocktail and tartan sauce. She smelled bad too. I completely understand why the animals are important. But if she has such an emotional problem , maybe she should have gone through the drive thru. Not in the restaurant where there's other customers that were trying to eat. The employees were very understanding about and kind about how others felt. I'm sure but shaking the blanket out in the eating area was and will appropriate.

Food is served fast and hot. Love their fried whitefish and I can always add hot potato on the side. Staff is always friendly and they always keep my drink filled up (and this southern girl loves her sweet tea).

I got a fried sampler platter which consisted of 1piece of fish, 1 stuffed crab, and several shrimp. The sides were a baked potato and cole slaw. The fish wasn't fresh and I couldn't eat it. The shrimp tasted like breaded cardboard and the stuffed crab was too salty with chunks of fake crabmeat in it. I would have scored it less but the potato and cole slaw did taste good.

We ordered the $26.00 family meal for "4 to 6" people and the 4 of us were full, and took home almost as much as we ate. It was really tasty and priced so reasonable.

Happy people work there and it's contagious ! Fair prices for fast food sea food. Workers walk thru eating every 5 minutes asking if they may get anything for you like a drink refill.

I loved the catfish feast or whatever they call it. My son loves their takeout. The hushpuppies are fried just right!....... Baked potato is a great side instead of fries.

My sister and I went to this fine establishment today. Our Captain Ds in Burlington had closed down. I was very pleased with the customer service we had received. It is top notch. Every one was so nice. Thank you Captain Ds team. You made our day and we will be visiting again.

So so so so very good food. First time trying it was amazing last week. I had to return. Workers are very nice. They don't rush you to order. Its very clean. When you walk in you DONT smell the scent of oil or anything.
