    Big FAIL
    I ordered a 4 pc chicken meal with coke slaw and fries. My husband ordered a combo meal with shrimp, chicken and fish along with coke slaw and fries. The manager who took our order repeated it back to ya as he entered it. He brought our order to us and commented chicken when he sat mine down. I noticed that the meat on my plate looked exactly like the fish in my husbands plate and it was. I took my plate to the counter and asked to see the manager. I explained that this was not chicken which is what I ordered then returned to my table with his promise to bring me chicken. I looked at my receipt and had been charged for a 4 piece fish meal which was $1.60 more than my chicken meal should have been and was the same price as my husbands combo meal with more food on it. The manager brought out 4 of the same small size over cooked pieces of chicken that was on my husbands plate. I commented that I did not want to have to lay $8.79 for this chicken as it was more than it should have been plus it was small and over cooked. He manger was holding the receipt dumbfounded but made no attempt at an offer. My husband interjected to just forget it as I am sure he knew where this was headed. He manager left the table and we never had anyone visit our table again. In the meantime another staff was apologizing to he couple next to us for their meal. The staff are noisy and carrying on conversations of personal matters far to much for them to be getting much accomplished.

    Hi, I log on to your blog daily. Your writing style is witty, keep up the good work!

  24. Martha Blackwell says:

    My husband and I have been faithful customers of Captain D’s for years. But today when we ate at the one in Commerce, GA, after it reopened, we were terribly disappointed. It seems you’ve changed the recipe for southern fried fish. Both the fish and batter were such a disappointment!. You could just about see and taste any fish in the very salty and yucky tasting batter. The portions of food have decreased yet the prices have increased. And we were told that you now only have Senior citizen deals on Wednesdays and Saturdays. A LOT of us seniors have supported you for a long time but if you don’t go back to your original recipe for southern fried fish and senior priced meals then I’m afraid you won’t be seeing us much longer. Just leave what works and tastes best alone!

  25. Do they sell the stuffed crab shells separately?

  26. They used to have a sauce on salmon.
    Hate that they stopped!!!!

  27. I wish you would brING back the Original type of fish and the batter that you had when you very first opened this restaurant chain!

  28. Darlene Smith says:

    Bought the family meal last night spent close to 60 dollar got home and 2 of my sides were not in the bag. Too far for me to go . I dont have a lot of money to just throw away, Ended up not enough food to feed my family was not happy.


    $ # all you can eat night was on sunday.

  30. wished you would put a Captains D’s in Topeka or Lawence Kansas. I cannot travel to Kansas City due to medical conditions.

  31. My order at the drive thru took a little longer than it should so the women working the window gave me a free slice of cheese cake to make up for it, now every time I go there I order the cheese cake with my order, it’s very good!
