By far..THE BEST FISH RESTAURANT IN S. FL!!!!!!!!!!.
Captains Tavern has such a warm quaint feel! Aside from the atmosphere, the food is the best around! I travel 1 hour for this place. It is SO worth it! I recommend this place to everyone I know...it's my favorite place to eat out!!!! You may have to wait a bit on Friday and Saturday night, I usually get a drink at the bar and they'll come get us over there. It's by far my favorite fish place around!
My Favorite Seafood Restaurant.
This is one of my favorite restaurants but definitely my favorite seafood restaurant. Fisherman that we know love eating here and ordering from their market. That's all you need to know. We love it so much. The food is just awesome. My favorites include the Salmon Tartare (always must order it) The main dishes are delicious. My favorite dessert is the white chocolate creme brulee.. Yum!!
My Favorite Seafood Place in Miami.
I have eaten here numerous times and I have yet to have a bad meal. The ipswich belly clams, coleslaw, salmon...everything is delicious. The service is usually right up there, but can lack slightly in very high traffic times which is expected, but the food is fresh and yummy...I would eat here once a week if I could.
For more than 30 years, the Captain has dished up the freshest fish without pretense or reservations.. In Short Despite the faux-nautical kitsch, this is a serious restaurant with real skill in the kitchen. There are many fish in the sea, and most of them are on the Captain's five-page menu. All are pristinely fresh and come cooked in a veritable United Nations of styles. Clam chowder is creamy and full of clams. Pan-fried soft-shell crab is golden, crispy and sea-sweet. The signature cheesecake is almost impossible to pass up.
Watch out for calculation of added gratuity for 6 or more diners.
Waiters calculate their own tips on bills for 6 or more diners, and "erroniously" add tip on the sales tax as well. You have to check the tip calculation carefully as management does not do so and it is not computerized.

Their food is remarkable! The best lobster bisque I have ever had (I could eat it every night). Service is outstanding, but go early otherwise there is a long wait. Tuesday night is 2-for-1 lobster night.
No pretense is right..
Captain's Tavern is a refreshing break from the rest of Miami. The waitresses are old school and friendly. The food is incredible and interesting, without being frilly. And I've never had a bad (or even mediocre) meal there.
The Captain's Tavern is a GREAT seafood place with dock-like decor. They have a great variety in the menu and an extensive wine list. If you are in the mood to eat fish, this is the place.
