Miami New Times' Description

Though it's hidden in the shadows off South Dixie Highway, there's hardly ever an empty table at Captain's Tavern. This unassuming local favorite seafood restaurant is decorated in a style that can best be described as seafarin' Seventies. It's a magnet for large families and old folks, and the menu is vast. Hot and cold appetizers range from $2 oysters to a $17 king crab cocktail. Lobster bisque is exceptional, and the conch chowder - served with a thimble-size shot of sherry - is spicy and strong. Coconut shrimp come with a sweet, slightly peppery dipping sauce. Entrées offer myriad possibilities: Order the fried oyster caesar salad to keep things (kind of) healthful, or try a fish dish. Fillets come either lightly breaded and fried, or baked to perfection, all with a dazzling array of toppings from which to choose. Many patrons favor the yum yum sauce (zesty green onions, lemongrass, and chive teriyaki), but the "à la Paulo" - a white wine, mushroom, and garlic reduction that perfectly complements yellowtail - stole our hearts. Cocktails are potent, $6 martinis are popular, and the mai tai is a certified ass-kicker. For dessert, try the chocolate pizza.

    If you like spice... Ask for the home made scotch bonnet sauce!

    Nothing is really better than lobster night at captains tavern!

  • Patrice G. on 11/12/12

    If you have a large party (10+) call an hour ahead and ask to put your name on the list. It's always great food!

  • Get the Yum Yum sauce on your choice of fish - it's sooo good.
