Captain's Tavern

Though it's hidden in the shadows off South Dixie Highway, there's hardly ever an empty table at Captain's Tavern. This unassuming local favorite seafood restaurant is decorated in a style that can best be described as seafarin' '70s. It's a magnet for large families and old folks, and the menu is vast. Coconut shrimp come with a sweet, slightly peppery dipping sauce. Try a fish dish. Fillets arrive either lightly breaded and fried, or baked to perfection, all with a dazzling array of toppings from which to choose. Cocktails are potent, martinis are popular, and the mai tai is a certified ass-kicker. For dessert, request the chocolate pizza.
