The Sea Captain's House is one of those rare "tourist traps" that actually deserves the crowds who eat there each night.
The seafood items in particular are world class. Fresh, and well prepared. I had the Chefs Seafood Muddle, which is a low country translation of French Boullabaise. It was superb. And the She Crab soup is to die for. The servive was highly professional and yet still very friendly. This is definitely not one of those hoy polloy pretentious places, yet it serves even better food than can be found at most of the restaurants that claim to offer gourmet cuisine.
The dining room is immaculate and tasteful. It appeared to be newly renovated. Considering the high quality of the food, this place was terrific value. Highly recommended.

Waitstaff needs quite alot of training. We had 8 people in our party, 2 of us ordered soup as an appetizer and the rest of us just our lunch. 15 minutes of waiting and someone finally brought us or 2 cups of soup, note this wasn't our waiter. We finished the soup and the server came and cleared the table. 30 minutes later we got the rest of our food. When we asked the server why it was taking so long we got the steryotypical answer ""The kitchen is a little backed up"" Being a chef and working in the front of the house at fine dining establishments, I already know that most servers will blame the kitchen rather than admit a fault on their behalf. When the food finally arrived it was lukewarm and not too impressive looking, it tasted satisfying but nothing to rant and rave about. All in all if you want to have a cup of soup and chicken sandwich during a stressful 1 1/2 hour session go ahead and give the Captain a try, I for one will never bring them back my business nor will I recomend them to any collegues or friends.
