Captain Jim’s Seafood Market Restaurant, the much-missed eatery known for its fresh fish and stone crabs, has finally reopened at the same North Miami location it called home for years. The restaurant closed after Hurricane Irma-related issues, according to former owner Jeffrey Ross. In January 2018, La Camaronera’s David Garcia purchased the restaurant for an undisclosed sum. When restaurant reopened in August, fans took to Facebook to show their approval with “thumbs up” emojis and promises to travel from points around South Florida for a taste of the restaurant’s fare. True to Garcia's promise, the menu is succinct. The star attractions are fresh yellowtail snapper, hogfish, Florida lobster, and stone crabs offered seasonally (market price). Customers can order their fish grilled, blackened, or fried, and each comes with one side. The restaurant also offers oysters on the half-shell (half-dozen for $12.99, dozen for $23.99), conch fritters ($10.99), fish dip ($9.99), and the original crab salad ($5.99). Entrées include shrimp and grits ($18.99), scallop scampi ($25.99), and the captain’s combo ($23.99) — the catch of the day, conch, and shrimp with one side. For dessert, there’s key lime pie, coconut cream pie, and flan ($5.99 each). Wine and beer are also available.
