Captain Mas Seafood and Crab House
Never had service. Person came by once in 30 minutes. Ended up leaving. No dinner
We were seated snd it took quite a while to get drinks. Then our drinks sat on empty for over 10 mins only to be told they ran out of the sweet tea and the lemonade we had previously been drinking. Luckily they didn’t charge us for them.
We ordered the boil for two and it was terrible. Potatoes were undercooked. The lobster I paid extra for was over cooked as well as the shrimp. About the only thing cooked right we’re the crabs, corn, and the sausage.
It was over 50 mins to get there from DC. I wouldn’t be back unless I happened to be in the area. They are worth a second shot on maybe a better night but not to go out of my way for it.
Food and service were excellent.
The food was excellent and a great value. The crab cakes were real; they had lots of crab meat with little filler.
Large group dinner after a wedding weekend. Awesome menu and service and meals were terrific. Everything came out hot and delicious. Recommend the fried snapper...presentation is something to experience! Great end to a great weekend. Glad to support a locally owned restaurant.
Great service and great people but the food not really what I would like it to be
The food was excellent and the service generally great. We were seated quickly and providing a rose to the ladies was a nice touch. We had a little issue getting a second glass of wine, as they evidently ran out of wine glasses. Sadly the ambiance really detracted from the otherwise great time. It just looked a little run down, and not like what you would expect from an up to date restaurant. It did not appear that any of the furniture was ripped or too worn, just not what I would expect. So if you can get past that, then I recommend it highly. I would suggest they invest in a little capital renewal. They could probably recapture some of the expenses in higher prices, as the food was that good.
Good food. A little pricey. Desert was horrible . One waitress taking care of 6 busy tables. Drinks overpriced
Not the freshest crab..
In town from ny and our whole rockfish was delicious. Fried oysters were delicious. Our server Leo was so pleasant and attentive that we thought he was the owner.
The owner also stopped by to ensure that we were doing well.
Wld drive from ny to visit again.
I was expecting more flavor from the steam pot. They use a tomato based sauce.
Food was really good. The venue was primarily a bar atmosphere, and it happened to be a “borrowed” venue for a Russian trivia game in Russian. Looked like the Russian speaking customers had fun.
I got a half dozen jumbo steamed blue crabs. They were perfectly cooked and seasoned. There was not a light crab in the lot. We also ordered crab cakes and hush puppies. The crab cakes were wonderful as were the hush puppies. You can not go wrong with this restaurant. I know we will be going back very soon.
Thank you Captain Mas!
We made a reservation for 930 because the restaurant says it closes at 11. We got there 5 minutes early and the place was empty. We were told that the kitchen was closed, very rudely. I strongly recommend staying away from this place
Went to Captain Mas Seafood on 3 August 2019 and the food was not great. My friends and I ordered the Seafood Boil for One- Cajun style. It didnt taste like cajun at all. The sauce tasted like they use a tomato sauce with water. So, it was tomato sauce watered down with no flavor on the seafood. Also, the shrimp and crab legs were overcooked, the potatoes no seasoning, the list goes on. Our overall experience with Captain Mas was not good. We will not go back to Captain Mas.
The food is great but the all you can eat prices are the highest I’ve ever seen. Even with the quality of food, $80 for a 13 year old little girl is just too much.
Food was awesome! Waiter was Great! Overall experience was niceeee
All you can get for an overpriced amount? Then they never bring more so it's really just a scam.
We went on Father's Day. We got a seat quickly and the server was at the table right away. We placed our order which was for one meal plus two all you could eat. The meal was served quickly; however, the crab legs took longer. With each remaining request for legs, it took longer and longer. As we left, the manager apologized indicating that he had not expected such a large crowd on Father's Day. The crab cake dinner was excellent as were the legs when we could get them.
The food was good as always. We had the seafood boil, enjoyed it and had more than enough clam, mussels, crawfish, crab and shrimp. My only desire is that they use larger clams. Our waitress was very good and attended to us faithfully. I will be returning.
They were short staffed but the food was worth the wait. I will visit again
Relaxing nice out w my husband.
Great service. My husband ordered seafood and loved it. He said is was extremely fresh. My pasta was disappointing but the shrimp was fresh and delicious. Appetizers were delicious.
We had a wonderful evening with good food, good service and great ambiance.
Why 50 characters. Seems silly????????
Scallops were perfectly done. Had nice flavor and balance.
Also had oysters on the half shell. Fresh, salty and good.
There was a private party starting as we arrived. The party was so loud they hurt our ears, and we left taking our food to go. The owner/manager was very apologetic, and gave us a discount on the food. I think it would have been nice otherwise.
Always great service when ever we visit. The food and service is impeccable.
We met some fine people that made our experience even more enjoyable. Food and service was exceptional as usual.
My family and I had another amazing experience at Captain Mas Seafood and Crab House. The food was excellent and everything was very fresh and cooked to perfection. The staff members were all very nice and helpful with the menu. They have also helped us celebrate a wedding anniversary in an unforgettable way ! We will definitely be back soon.
I absolutely loved it! This was my first time at Captain Mas Seafood and it definitely won’t be my last !
The food was cooked perfectly. The chef himself came out to us which was a very nice touch. We ordered the seafood boil for two, gator tots and crab Mac and cheese which were all amazing. I could have not made it better myself.
Our waiter, Steven, was great! He made sure my husband and I have a nice Sunday date. He took wonderful care of us , made recommendations and funny jokes which made our dining experience unforgettable.
Lastly, the decor was perfect as well. It had lots of cool stuff to look at while waiting for the food. The lake overlook made us feel like we were on vacation.
Thank you so much, Captain Mas Seafood! We will be back really soon for more of your amazing food.
I've driven past this restaurant many times and have heard great things about it, so I decided to stop in for dinner. I'm not sure why this place always seems empty -- I found the service and the food to be excellent. It's a bit pricey, and the ambience doesn't seem to match its pricing -- its open seating dining boths and tables aren't very intimate, and the decor seems underdone for a place that is this expensive, but those are minor things compared to the importance of great food, and my item was well prepared and delicious. A nice destination for great seafood!
My only comment is that they need to dust. It was a slow night and the sill was very dirty and dusty with spider webs. When people come in to sit that is not what they want at eye level. This is something that should be tended to daily. It was rather gross.
But the food and staff were great!!
The clam chowder soup appetizer was very good. The Crab Mac & Cheese was excellent. The 1lb king crab legs main entree was excellent. I highly recommend Captain Mas Seafood. Live Jazz music was playing during my meal. Very nice! The service was spot on, very attentive.
The only small issue I had was with the Hostess that greeted me when entering the establishment. I told the Hostess that I was here for the OpenTable Reservation, but the Hostess did not know what to do to find my reservation and was directing me to sit at the bar. Very strange. Another owner person walked up to the Hostess stand and corrected the misunderstanding. There must be a lack of Hostess training for the summer help.
The service was friendly, our server did his best despite having 5+ tables. The food was good: The 1lb crab leg entree was tasty, the crab cakes were acceptable (a little too brown after obviously sitting in the window for a bit). The food took a bit long, approximately 45 minutes; apparently the "circuit breaker" or something wasn't working properly. Overall, it was acceptable, friendly staff, and edible food. If you don't go in expecting much, you should be ok.
We've been to Captain Mas before, but I have to say this experience was the worst due to the fact that we didn't even get to eat there. Typically the food is great, but service is slow. If you know that going in and are prepared to wait, it's not too bad. For this particularly occasion, we wanted to go for Father's Day. We made a reservation and before we even entered the restaurant, other patrons were telling us to find another place to eat. After waiting about 15min to speak to someone (host, waiter, or otherwise), we were told that even though we had a reservation and there were open tables, we should find somewhere else to eat. We were advised that the wait for food was over 2 hours at that point. Apparently there had been some events earlier in the day that precipitated this issue. Either way, I could only see one waiter serving the entire restaurant, and I imagine the kitchen was understaffed given the long wait for food. It's disappointing because the food itself is great, I just think this place is poorly managed and understaffed. If you choose to go there, be prepared to wait (even on a "good" day) and have a backup plan.
The host was rude to our party and the other guests who were waiting to be seated at our reserved times. Apparently there was a 20 minute delay to be seated, which was expressed in a very rude nonchalant manner. Then, the manager came and told us all that it would be 2 hours to wait for any food to be prepared. Strange that would happen on a holiday. This restaurant seemed more like "Captain No Mas". I won't be visiting this one again. The parking lot was fairly empty too which means this may not have been a very reputable restaurant to begin with.
This was a horrendous experience! We didn't even stay for the food the service was so bad!!
Food was decent. They seem to be understaffed. Manager not engaged. Arrived 5 minutes early prior to our reservation. Waited to be seated more than 10 minutes because no one greeted us. Staff moved right at us but didn't approach. Finally shown to a table in the corner that had a coat rack beside it. The coat rack was left there and we had to move it every time we needed to get out from the table. Food didn't come out for more than an hour!!! And when it did it wasn't hot. Items were missing ( which then took even longer to come back out). I had to ask several times for my check. We order all you could eat but didn't get to experience it because a fire broke out in the kitchen and smoke came through the vent causing us to cough and my daughter's asthma to flare up. No apology from manager. No nothing. I probably will not visit this establishment again.
I waited at the door for 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged we had arrived. When we were finally seated it was 30 mins before anyone came to get our drink order. During this time I watched 3 other tables walk out. I asked the waitress how long it would take us to get our food. She informed me that a table ordered their food at noon and was not served until 1:50 PM. After being told this I thanked her and we walked out.
