A Baltimore landmark since 1978, Captain James Landing Restaurant has earned the name "most unique eatery" in Baltimore City. For starters we are the only restaurant shaped like a merchant vessel. Five brothers created a restaurant in the 70"s with the goal of providing quality service to the citizens of Baltimore, Maryland as well as the thousands of tourist that visit our Monumental City. Our Waterfront Crab House (located adjacent of our restaurant) was awarded in 2012 "#1 Best Crabs in Baltimore" by Baltimore Magazine. Our Crab House is the one spot in the city where you can eat steamed crabs with a true waterfront seating. Water Taxi Stop #14 brings you right to our waterfront location.

The food is always great, anything we order, and the groupon has to be one of the best deals out there... always get service as well.

The food was good. My waitress was amazing. There was a bit of noise due to the kids at my table and other tables. However it wasn’t a big deal to me but it was to one of the other servers. He was a bit rude in the aspect that he went to physically turn down the volume on my nephews phone instead of saying something to an adult that was at our table. Other than that dinner was great

We were seated upstairs with a great view of the city and Greg was the best waiter! Funny and attentive, but not pushy. Food was good and portions were huge. Would definitely go back.

Our server, Greg, was great! He was personable, knowledgeable and professional. My wife didn’t want her specialty drink too sweet, and Greg made it so. He certainly went the extra mile to make our visit a memorable one. The food was awesome, from the crab dip app, to the stuffed rockfish followed by the baklava. It was all expertly prepared. We will definitely return!

Service was really slow, the food was cold and overcooked. Also, they automatically charged me gratuity for a party of 2! This has been unheard of and may be my last time back.

Just be mindful that if you bill is over $70 they charge 18% gratuity which I never knew and I have been there quite a few times.

This is a great place for any kind of gathering. We mostly go with 2 kids, and it's got a great atmosphere--don't feel like kids are unwelcome. Not a huge place, so I feel like the food is freshly prepared for our order. Always a good value and the service is great!

I dine there almost every time I'm in Baltimore. Love the food. It was great overall but this was the first time that we had to constantly ask the waitress for assistance. She was covering a good number of tables & seemed a bit overwhelmed in trying to get to all of us.

It was my first time at Captain James and it was overall a great experience. My boyfriend and I went for a Valentine’s Day dinner where they also had a nice Valentine’s dinner special prepared. The food was delicious and our server was great as well, because she did her best to make sure we were taken care of despite how busy she was. That night was very busy, and was a bit crowded with how many people they were seating at a time.. there was about 1 foot or less between the couples beside us which I believe was the biggest downside.. I wish the spacing was better between tables so it wouldn’t feel like others were on top of us and in our conversation. Otherwise it was great! Thanks!

The waiter was under trained and distracted to the point that we had to flag him down repeatedly. Food was pretty good and reasonably priced. We will probably try it again at some point but with so many choices nearby it would be hard to go back for the level of service that was received.

The food was excellent and the service from our waiter, Greg, was great. Only negative would be that it’s a little small so you’re close to others.
