Captain Jim’s Seafood Restaurant Garners Praises from The Hungry Post

Captain Jim’s Seafood Restaurant in Miami Gets Featured on The Hungry Post

An article from The Hungry Post, a popular foodie publication, featured Captain Jim’s Seafood last June 30th. Dubbing us as an “Anthony Bourdain Approved” restaurant, the author Diana Rodriguez sang praises about some of our best dishes. We here at Captain Jim’s Seafood are proud to add this title to our already impressive list of accolades received from other prestigious publications.

Our seafood restaurant had its humble beginning as a processing center for fish that would be delivered to restaurants around the Miami area. Founder Jim Hanson slowly grew the business from a makeshift dining area in front of a fish case to the popular restaurant it is known as today. Years later, current owner Jeffrey Ross, a renowned businessman and restaurateur, stepped in and gave the place a much needed revamp. He reinvented the menu, keeping the crowd pleasers while adding a new twist. Since then, Captain Jim’s Seafood has been garnering awards left and right, including Trip Advisor’s Award of Excellence in 2015 and 2016, and New Times’ 2016 Best Seafood Market In Miami.

Beyond seafood, however, our restaurant has a lot more to offer. Even The Hungry Post’s contributor pointed out that our in-demand “Brooklyn Style” Outrageous Chicken Parmesan and Captain’s Marinated Baked Wings were a pleasant surprise. Available as both an appetizer and entrée, the chicken parmesan is served with linguine marinara, and topped with cheese. The marinated baked wings are served on Fridays and Saturdays, and best washed down with some of our locally-craft beers like La Rubia, Magic City, Pop’s Porter.

House Specials like the New Orleans Style Shrimp and Grits come highly recommended as well. This dish features freshly caught jumbo shrimp in a buttery cream sauce. Visitors should not pass up the chance to try out the Shellfish Medley, Snapper Francais, Captain’s Triple Play, Beer-Battered Prawns, and Linguine with White Clams – all local favorites. When available, Florida Lobster and Maine Lobster are also great entrees to order, especially when paired with our many sides.

No meal is complete without dessert. For a taste of heavenly homemade delicacies, order a slice of our famous key lime pie or the bread pudding. Our key lime pie has a rich, creamy filling complemented by a thin crust with a tart flavor. Meanwhile, the bread pudding is drizzled in a delicious whiskey sauce. Both go great with all scrumptious dishes on the menu.

Captain Jim’s Seafood has been a well-known spot for fresh seafood and local cuisine in Miami since 1996. Most of what we serve are caught by our own boats or flown in weekly from the Northeast. With a renovated façade and a new menu that features beloved local dishes as well as distinct Northeastern flavors, our restaurant is proud to continue the tradition of serving up good food.
