I waited at the door for 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged we had arrived. When we were finally seated it was 30 mins before anyone came to get our drink order. During this time I watched 3 other tables walk out. I asked the waitress how long it would take us to get our food. She informed me that a table ordered their food at noon and was not served until 1:50 PM. After being told this I thanked her and we walked out.

Mother’s Day early dinner. Was not crowded but took over 50 minutes to get food after ordering.
Food was okay but not nearly as good as the very high price tag.
Nothing special. Go elsewhere.

Stephen was a great waiter. He has a jovial demeanour and made sure we were taken care of without being intrusive.

The food was very good. We’ve tried lots of seafood places of a similar level, like Ford’s. In our opinion, Mas quality is much better.

Keep up the good work. We’ll be back!

Went on a Sunday evening and they had live karaoke, which would’ve been ok had it not been for the extremely SLOW service. Went for dinner at 6pm and didn’t get our food until close to 8pm because the servers were busy carrying on with the singers and the crowd. They blamed it on the dinner rush but when I can clearly see you by the bar giving hugs to everyone, that definitely put me in a fowl mood. Overall, the food was ok, definitely not worth waiting close to 2 hours. Will most likely get my seafood fix somewhere else, either Joe’s Crabshack or Red Lobster.

Great service. Very friendly. Delicious seafood. A little pricey, but blue crabs are expensive so not unexpected. Would definitely return if in the area.

I was in the city for a business and a friend of mine decided to have dinner. I checked Open Table to determine a good local restaurant. Captain Mas had a great rating so I decided we would eat there. It was a Tuesday and there was not a lot of folks there, but the food was wonderful, the service was great, and the atmosphere was on point. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any who would want a good meal

Captain Mas’ is a hidden gem. The crab cakes are the best I’ve had. The gator bites are meaty and tasty. The oysters are delicious. The food in not over breaded and cooked perfectly. This is a place you will want to return to.

Restaurant was clearly short staffed. We waited at the door for about 5-10 minutes before we got greeted. It took about another 15 minutes to get our drink orders. Then we placed our appetizer. Took about another 15-20 minutes before we got out. The only good part was the food was worth the wait. Service not so much. It was one server plus two managers it looked like for the entire restaurant including the bar. All in all, the server did a decent job with only having one hand. Looked like he broke the other or sprained it. Food was worth the wait but not much else. First time there, and agreeably the last. You can spend $100 at McCormicks and get a better meal with better service.

The food was AMAZING! The ambiance was so-so...but we will definitely go back for the food! The crab mac and cheese was incredible, and the mussels were the largest I have ever had in a restaurant. It is wonderful to find a place that doesn't overcook crab legs and also has SO much crab in their crab cakes! My only suggestion for improvement is to upgrade the wine list / options.

This is a hidden gem. The staff is very friendly, the food is very good. It's only challenge is that it is a little hard to find. It is well worth the effort.

We twelve decided this was the most genuinely enjoyable dining experience we had had in recent times. Tucked away in a shopping center, it is a hidden gem well worth finding. The service from beginning to end was terrific, from wait staff to attentive owner/managers; we were made welcome. Each selection is made from scratch (NO Microwave on site!) and takes a little time. Everything is fresh, including chowder, soup and entrees. Significantly more accommodating and sincerely caring than most restaurants.

We had fruit flies join us at the table. When we mentioned this to the waiter we were able to switch tables. When the flies rejoined us at the new table the maitre d' just kept saying this has never happened before. The food was ok but not spectacular. Maybe a little overpriced.

Nice house salad and seafood in itself was good. Had the boil for 2, which the sauce was an unexpected type of Louisiana style. No spiciness and more like a bouillabaisse. Like return in a pinch. Food was ok but not remarkable.

Reviews looked good online but when we arrived, at 7 pm on a Thursday night, there were only 3 cars outside. We didn't bother going in, not when every other restaurant in the area has lots of customers. Hmmm. BTW , I could only submit this by rating the dining experience - which we didn't have so those are not accurate.

Authentic and delicious seafood!!! The service was great as always. The only thing that I would say is that the televisions should be within view of all customers and not just within a particular area, and the music could be better.

Took my 8 year old daughter during a visitation weekend. We had the seafood boil. It was different than the boils we have had at other places but it was quite good. The place is small and was not crowded. The staff were friendly and spent time visiting. I enjoyed it and would recommend for a relaxed casual dining experience.

Nothing tasted good. Mac-n-cheese tasted rancid and fried oysters were mushy--we were afraid to eat either of them. Server never came back to refresh our drinks, and there was a horrible karaoke thing going on.

Food was very expensive and mediocre at best. $16 for a small cereal bowl of lobster Mac and cheese, a $30 combo platter with 3 small overcooked scallops, 3 ok grilled shrimp and a rubbery piece of fish, and drinks that were often empty and VERY SLOW inattentive service, particularly given that the restaurant was barely 1/3 full. Restaurant was swelteringly hot as well. Doubtful we will return.

This is in an out of the way location, without that it would have a line out the door. Excellent service, fresh food and great tastes. I had the shrimp and grits, my wife the crab crusted mahi. Both were excellent, very large portions, and very fresh. I highly recommend this restaurant which we only found because we stayed at a local hotel.

We had hoped to have a quiet dinner and thought we would try Captain Was. It was quite quiet. We were some of the only diners at 7 p.m. on a Wednesday night. The nut crusted mahi mahi with crab on top was delicious as were the mashed potatoes and spinach that accompanied it. The beer list could have been better but we had no complains about the service. It turned out to be a good meal.
