This iconic North Miami seafood spot debuted in the mid-'90s but closed after Hurricane Irma. Luckily, La Camaronera's David Garcia came to the rescue with a last-minute purchase, allowing Captain Jim's to stay afloat. After a $300,000 overhaul, loyal patrons agree the latest iteration holds true to the original, and many were relieved to see the menu — and overall ambiance — was mostly unchanged. Today a new kitchen crew has re-created the menu's classics just as the regulars remember them. They can still order dozens of stone crab claws (when in season) and a beautiful take on conch salad with meaty hunks of mollusk tossed in a spicy tomato marinade and cubed red and green pepper. Newer menu additions include grilled, blackened, or fried whole fresh yellowtail snapper or hogfish. Insider tip: Though the conch fritters, corvina Français, and key lime pie remain customer favorites, try the original crab salad, or go all out with the Captain's Combo — the catch of the day, often conch and shrimp, served with a choice of side.
