Capt Ed's - Point Pleasant -

Going to be dining at Capt Ed's this Saturday - Anything I would want to know? Or maybe not know? (ha)

  1. Capt. Ed's is one of my favorite restaurants! One suggestion: get there early...they don't take reservations and the wait on weekends can be long. Must try apps are the seared tuna sashimi and the mussels in garlic and sherry...fabulous. I'd definitely order the crab cakes if they're on the menu that of the few crab cakes I've tried that isn't loaded with breading and fillers and the remoulade sauce that accompanies them is to die for. Also excellent is the steak on a stone or the broiled scallops...but everything is good there. BYO.

    If she's available, ask to be seated in Margaret's station...I don't know if she still does it, but instead of the customer rating her, she does it the other way around...she evaluates the customer with her "customer report card", but you have to ask for it. Very funny and definitely adds to the dining experience. :)

    1. We haven't had the pleasure of Margaret's capable service but we enjoy the broiled scallops and steaks at Capt Ed's. MQ is absolutely right about lines but worth the weight. Enjoy tux!

      1. How was the resto? I have been wanting to go there for some time. Heard it was good also.

        1. Hi, Tuxedo...did you end up going to Ed's? Would love to hear your thoughts.

            After getting a good feeling from the boards I was eagerly looking forward to going - at which point my hopes were crushed when I took sick and was unable to go.
            Guess I will have to make it a destination for when I am feeling better!

                Capt Eds is great and now that Summer is gone, the crowds will thin out. Though even in the winter, Capt Eds will have a wait on the weekends. Another place to try before it closes for the winter is Red's Lobster Pot on the beach. Eat inside, the food is better and less expensive than outside.
