Captain Seas is a definite must try ! I have never had a bad experience and I’ve been going here for years. The owners are so wonderful and they always make you feel welcome! Not to mention the food is delicious. Always a great experience and the prices won’t break the bank.

It does not look like mich from the outside but we had some of the best fried shrimp and fried scallops we ever had. The staff was helpful and very friendly. Will go back!

Excellent service! The woman behind the counter was quick and very nice. Food was good. Only slight issue was the breading to clam ratio on the fried clam strips leaned more toward the breading than clam, but thats pretty common at most seafood places. Food was still very good. Clam chowder was excellent!


Don't get the lobster bisque, I got 2 bowls. 1 was burnt on the lid and cold in the middle the 2nd ice cold.They microwave the bisque. And it is also made with imation crab meat. NO Lobster at all. Gross...

All the food is fresh and made to order. my favorites are clamstrips with the best Cole slaw, chicken Caesar wrap, and the homemade chicken soup is amazing!!

I have driven past this restaurant for years and seen many people on Wallingford community forums praise it, so I decided to give it a try. I was craving a scallop roll but noticed it was bay scallops rather than sea scallops. I prefer the larger sea scallops, but decided to give it a try anyway. I ordered New England Clam Chowder and a scallop roll. The scallops were awful. No color to them whatsoever. So little in fact that I don't even believe they were cooked inside as the consistency was strange. Even the tartar sauce did not taste great. I threw the whole thing in the trash. While the clam chowder was loaded with clams and veggies it lacked flavor and was very thin for New England clam chowder. I would have called in an order ahead of time, but could not find a menu online, despite a Google search. Social media pages were not updated and when I got to the restaurant there wasn't even copies of the menu to take home, in case you wanted to order ahead in the future. Not a good experience. I will not return.

This place is great for seafood. I got the fried wholebelly clams which were very good and fresh. The coleslaw and mozzarella sticks were very good. The atmosphere was really comfortable and casual and they had amazing hospitality and a nice staff, 5 stars!

Captain Seas is a Wallingford dining tradition. I was so excited that my Mom chose here for her 90th birthday. Tables were spotless and I noticed that the staff knew almost every one by name. Mom ordered a hot lobster roll stuffed with lobster meat, home-made fries and homemade coleslaw. She loved it. I had a whole belly clam dinner again with fresh homemade onion rings and the same Cole slaw. It was perfectly cooked in fresh oil which is a true sign of perfection. Besides Seafood they offer burgers, hot dogs and so much more. A little pricey but well worth it.
