The first Captain D’s restaurant, which was then known as Mr. D’s Seafood and Hamburgers, was opened in Donelson, Tennessee on August 15, 1969. The chain’s current name was changed to Captain D’s in 1974, a time when its management also changed the menu to focus more on its seafood dishes including classic fish-and-chips and shrimo.
Nowadays, the chain has numerous restaurants in several states including Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Virginia, Tennessee, and Texas.
What It’s Known For
Captain D’s prides itself on being the leading fast casual seafood restaurant chain in the United States. In its restaurants, diners can feast on a wide range of seafood-based dishes. Keep in mind that the menu doesn’t feature American staples like pizzas, burgers and chicken dishes.
Why Eat Here
Don’t be afraid about treating your family and friends to delicious seafood meals at Captain D’s! You will find that the prices here are affordable and there’s even a $4.99 value offering on the menu. You will also agree that the prices are a bargain considering the high quality, both in presentation and palate-pleasing flavors, of the dishes and desserts.
There are no processed seafood here, too, and it’s a great thing considering that nobody wants to pay for, much less eat, bland food with a plastic flavor and feel. Instead, many of the food here are made from whole cut filets with a true-blue flavorful quality to them. Indeed, if you’ve ever been the victim the former, you will immediately taste the difference in the latter.
Every Captain D’s restaurant features an extensive menu so there’s a couple of meals that will satisfy every person’s palate. There are actually dozens of choices in fish, grilled meals, variety meals, salads and sandwiches, appetizers and sides, desserts and add-ons, and kids’ meals. For large groups, the family meals provide the best value for the money – these are served in generous portions and priced reasonably.
The seafood dishes are a must regardless of the number of times you’ve already been to Captain D’s for your lunch and dinner, perhaps even for a substantial snack. There are just so many choices that it can be challenging to choose so we narrowed the list for you.
The Extra Crispy Shrimp and Fish has a savory buttery flavor with just a hint of spice from the black pepper, and the satisfying crunch makes every bite a pleasure. The classic batter-dipped fish is cooked to perfection – it isn’t greasy or oily at all – and it’s the perfect complement to the hush puppies and your choice of two sides.
The Shrimp, Fish and Crab Cake is a filling meal on its own. Aside from the batter-dipped fish fillets, which can be quite addictive because of their delicious flavor, the meal also consists of four fat and juicy butterfly shrimp and a savory breaded crab cake. And if that wasn’t enough, you can also choose two sides and enjoy the hush puppies that come with it.
Are you a sucker – the good one, however – for shrimp? Then Captain D’s has the 12-piece butterfly shrimp meal that will satisfy your craving for the juicy, succulent and plump seafood treats! Again, make your meal complete with your choice of two sides and hush puppies.
Other shrimp-laden dishes that we think should be on your plate are the Popcorn Shrimp and 2 Piece Fish Meal as well as the Grilled Shrimp Skewers (i.e., served with rice, two sides, and a breadstick).
The fish dishes at Captain D’s are nearly divine, too. The Blackened Tilapia is served with rice, two sides, and a breadstick, and it’s a great meal on any day. The Wild Alaskan Salmon is likewise a filling and flavorful lunch or dinner option.
For people with a big appetite or who want to share a plate, the Deluxe Seafood Platter is a must-try. The platter is filled to the brim with six plump shrimp, two fish fillets, and two stuffed crab shells, as well as the restaurant’s signature hush puppies and your choice of two sides. There are also family meals, as well as the Seafood Feast with its batter-dipped fish, butterfly shrimp, stuffed crab shells, family-style sides, and a dozen hush puppies.
We love the Captain D’s brand of Southern hospitality and table service, too. Every food is delivered hot – or cold, depending on the expected temperature – to your table while only real silverware and dishware are used.
Carry out and drive-thru options are also available.
