Amazing food and attentive staff. Great place for a special occasion.
Our special occasion, yet casual dinner at Captain James Landing was great. Crab Cakes were good, Scallops were tasty, small, but tasty, and the Cream of Crab soup was outstanding. We will be back soon!
Captain James Landing is a great, local destination for crabcakes and seafood when you're in Baltimore. Among two or three other restaurants, this place has the best crabcakes in the city; lotsa crab and little filler. If you're not into shellfish, they have a great selection of fish and what look like great burgers, although I must admit I've never ordered one from Captain James. If you're into cocktails, be sure to check out what their mixologist's latest offerings are. On my last visit I had a delicious margarita with habanero-infused tequila. Muy delicioso! Bonus points for having an exterior that looks like a ship.
The restaurant was old and furniture was pretty sorry looking. The tables were old chairs uncomfortable but food was good and service was Above Average the crab cakes and hush puppies were delicious
Food and service were great! Maybe a little on the pricier side but you get what you pay for.
Our meeting finished early so we headed to the restaurant at 9:30 rather than the 11:30 reservation. Bill (manager) was very accomodating and seated us promptly with a choice or breakfast or lunch menu. We chose lunch. Paul our waiter explained the specials and when asked made a few recommendations. We started with the fried calamari w/ Old Bay - terrific starter - hot and tasty. We both had the fried flounder sandwich which included a whole filet of flounder deep fried to perfection - served very hot with a huge portion of french fries. Came with pickle and lettuce and tomato. Very nice. Too big to finish so we both brought half home. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Paul did a great job.
We enjoyed our meal here and plan to return.
Food was great and I really like the Sangria. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Good seafood is a must
Friendly staff and great food
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.
We come here every time we come to town! It's so comfortable, relaxed and the food is phenomenal. We are already planning our next trip to Captain James Landing!
Our sever was excellent! I dont recall his name but he was great. Very knowledgeable about the menu and how foods are cooked.
Great service and food! Found a great deal on Groupon.
Not able to accommodate allergies. Wait staff didn't know they don't use old bay. Food was pricey for what you got.
We love the crab legs here! They are always so tasty!
Our experience here was awesome. The food was amazing and the service was great. Already looking forward to returning!
High quality, high priced, groupon helped, its not a buffet
Great time. Thanks!
We used a Groupon. Great value. We ordered crab imperial meals. It was a bit mushy. And for the prices 9f their entrees..I couldn't believe we had to pay for extra rolls.
Too many limitations on what is available and when. No bread until I asked. I think it all was a result of being a Groupon customer
Great food and great service. Love the ambience !!! Would come again and recommend
The service was excellent and the food was great too! My water glass was never empty and the wait staff was amazing.
Very good food! We were seated in a timely manner and everyone was friendly and attentive. Would recommend to anyone :)
Our server Greg was top notch and the seafood dinners were delicious!
One in our party had a soy allergy and our waiter was extremely accomodating considering how busy they were. We thought the food was OK...best for seafood. Will definitely go again to try something else on the menu.
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.
We had a wonderful time and loved the food. The crab cakes were great, brussell sprouts yummy, steak very good as well as all the appetizers and desserts!!! Service was great no issues quick & friendly staff!!!
This was my 3rd time attending this place. We used a Groupon for our meal, so it was a great value. Services was good and attentive.
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.
My husband's salmon was delicious. My crabcake was okay. It did not have a whole lot of taste.
We drove an hour just for lunch here and it’s always worth it. The food is always amazingly delicious and the service is always spot on.
Always delicious, fresh and friendly.
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!
Captain James Landing has become my go to spot when I travel to Baltimore. The atmosphere is lively and you get good portions of food for decent price
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.
Place was great outstanding service,food was hot and taste was outstanding
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.
We had a great time! Food was great & service was top notch!
