I ordered the two lobster rolls deal. This is only the second time I have had the lobster rolls, with the first time last year at a Captain D's in Huntsville, Al. Those first lobster rolls were absolutely delicious with buttery rolls and lettuce. The lobster rolls at this Captain D's this year were not nearly as good. I tried to put my finger on the differences. For one thing, the rolls lacked that toasted buttery taste I had experienced previously. I eventually realized that my sandwiches had no lettuce which these lobster sandwiches are supposed to have. Unfortunately, I didn't pinpoint why my sandwiches didn't taste quite right until after I had finished them and started to look at video reviews on them. I then took a closer look at their table photo of them, and they had plenty of lettuce in that photo of the lobster rolls. When I brought the issue up with the woman working behind the counter, she checked with the cook staff about the lack of lettuce and their response was the lettuce went bad and they threw it out. This restaurant has an obligation to their customers to prepare the food as it is supposed to be prepared and as advertised, and if they can't do that, they must inform their customers that they can't meet the order as planned. They failed in both areas. This restaurant offered me no compensation for not preparing the food correctly. There was a good bit of meat (hope it wasn't imitation lobster), but this could have been the better sandwich I had hungered for if they ran their restaurant with better preparation and integrity.
Our Red Hat ladies came here for lunch. We were aware that they had recently opened and had plenty of time to wait for our lunch. It was a good thing we did. As the kitchen backed up with all of our orders and others. I had the fried chicken & turnip greens & potato salad (which had dijon mustard in it) and a corn muffin. Everything was tasty. Wait Staff was good but we had to remind her to refill our water & tea glasses. Hopefully this place will catch on quick to an hour lunch time period for folks.
OMG. This small place is the "Bomb". Got to have some of their catfish dinners every time I visit my old home in Bessemer. This is a family oriented place that is ran by a local person. Get in there early on Friday because it is small and you don't want to be left out.
Service was good, food was great, it was very clean. Everyone was really friendly.Food was fast but that didn't cut down on the taste. This was my first time going to a Captain D's and I liked it.
My hubby and I had tasted a couple of weeks ago their food (shrimp po-boy and crab cake sliders-so delish) in their Food Truck so were eagerly wanting to visit their storefront restaurant. We were able to taste their Rocket Shrimp as an hors d' oeuvre,which was so fabulous we would order this as an entree. It could easily feed one person as an entree or four for an appetizer. We ate every bite of it and declared how great it was. We did eat their hushpuppies which were good. But the hit of the evening was the Shrimp and Grits!! Oh my, this is not your usual but a very tasty one filled with shrimp, Andouix sausage, onions, tomatoes (lots) and green peppers! Oh my goodness, so yummiy! My hubby had the two Taco's, one with BBQ and the Alligator. The Alligator was so tender and juicy and the BBQ just hit the spot too! Along with his tacos, was a bowl of black beans & rice! It was seasoned so perfectly too! We decided that we wll be sharing this place very soon with all of our friends. It is so delicious and Seafood Lovers will embrace it too!

Back in 2004, Kash along with some classmates had decided to plan a restaurant for their senior level marketing class at UAB. The project took the full course of the semester and after several grueling months of research they came up with an idea to start
As a native of south Louisiana , I was disappointed. The boiled crawfish was not good. They were large, however, did not taste good. Seasoning was not in boil, it was sprinkled on top. Will never order that again. Fried green tomatoes w crab meat needed more sauce. Crab topping was dry and tasteless. The Cajun Seafood House in Vestavia Hills is much better and with true Cajun authentic taste.

Really good cajun and southern food. Service is super-friendly, but a little slow. They are often out of multiple items, but just keep moving down your list. You'll find something that's good. They have won multiple awards at the local gumbo gala, so make sure to get at least a cup of gumbo - it's awesome. The bisque is really good, too.
