The service was exceptional, and I truly commend the waiter that we had - I believe that his name was Ryan. The food as creative, filling, and simply delicious. It was a laidback, enjoyable atmosphere that made this late V-Day dinner really terrific. Would certainly return!!

I have to admit, I have been sleeping on Captain James. I’m a seafood lover and I was scared to try something new. Captain James’ food was the best seafood I have had in a while! Everything perfectly seasoned and presented. The first of many more date night options!

First, I must say that the FOH manager Greg was Amazing. When we were seated he promptly greeted us and asked if he were using any discounts or Groupon. We used Groupon for $80 worth of food for $40 which I actually paid $20 for. He told us what was included and what wasn't which was very helpful. All the regular menu options were available expect for their happy hour specials. The food was costly but the food was good. There is an 18% gratuity that is added to the bill which was about $14 dollars. I wasn't too big on the Mediterranean Salmon because the feta and kalamata olives made that dish too salty. The steak was amazing. I would return without a doubt.

Good food was my 3rd time visiting. This time I had the Salmon (wasn't wild caught as I was told) but was pretty good, my wife had the chicken & shrimp pasta which she really enjoyed. They have a Groupon $40 gets you $80 worth of food unfortunately mine had expired, but they still honored it for the value in which I paid for the Groupon. I will return.

The food took awhile to come out. The couple to the right of us got seated about 10 minutes after us and received their food and dessert before we received our appetizers. Our waitress was polite and offered a free drink but even after that there was no sense of urgency towards our table.

I've been to Captain James twice now, both times during Baltimore Restaurant Week, and both times I've come away saying "that was exactly what I was looking for." Nice casual atmosphere, not too stuffy, not too loud. The food and service were on point, and you can't beat Restaurant Week prices. I will certainly return and recommend Captain James to friends looking for a good meal.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. We were expecting to use a 'special' menu, however, we were an hour early and...luckily, their daily special was just what we were looking for. The seafood was phenomenal - especially the crab cakes & crab imperial. We were excited for the desserts, but they were just "so-so" ...but the meal itself outweighed the dessert!

I hadn’t been here in years and was excited to give it a try during restaurant week. The grilled octopus, hush puppies and crab critters were yummy. I had the stuffed shrimp and grits which was very good. My husband and brother had the prime rib and found it to be fatty and just ok. The drinks were good and we would come back.

My husband and I had a wonderful time here for our date night out. We got to sit upstairs and could overlook the city lights and water. Our waitress took great care of us and the food was delicious. I had the salmon, which was cooked perfectly, and my husband had the fried fish sandwich, which he enjoyed more than I've ever seen him enjoy. The only issue we had was having to sit next to a loud group, but that wasn't the fault of the restaurant. It was a Saturday night, which I understand is typically busy, but this group was just obnoxious and foul mouthed. We will definitely be going back.
