2 years ago had amazing dinner. Traveled 1300 miles this time and crab legs were great but prime rib was horrible , fatty and not good flavor . They rushed us through the entire dinner and did not have a relaxing experience. Very disappointed.

Reservation at 9:00 pm, we were there at 8:45, in the table at 9, 20 minutes to get the menu, time printed in the check 11:01, order mussels, crab legs (already cook), prime rib(already cook). Two hours waiting, worst experience ever. A lot of servers but no one assign to your table, the worst disaster in service I ever saw.... More

The place is usually crowded. It is a tight fit. It is not on the ocean, but it is on the harbor. The food is good. Most things are sold separately. If you order a steak or sea food, your salad and potato are extra, so it gets pretty pricey. The wait staff are good, but the ones we have... More

My friend and I had dinner here on a Saturday night. Very busy and popular place. The food was good, and the wait staff experienced but if you're looking for a romantic, quiet spot, this is not the place. It was pretty loud, but again, it was a Saturday night.

This was the choice for a breakfast Brunch /Lunch. The terrace overlooked the Ocean. The Apple, Pecan Chicken Salad was so amazing and so was the price. The quality was good and the portion size so much I had to take some home. Realizing I could not eat like a grown man but even my husband barely finished his. The... More

My partner and I love this restaurant. We always visit when we are staying in Huntington Beach. The food is very consistent and the wait staff is very attentive. I would suggest getting there early or having reservations. Wait times can be long on a busy night. They have a lounge area that is frequently busy.

Living in Huntington Beach for 30+ years we felt it time to try Captain Jack's. We'd made reservations the day before. In a short wait for our table we were overpowered by five LOUD people at the bar… after being seated these same people were sat next to us. When our server was speaking to us about the menu items...

I was here on Thursday, March 9, and had the seafood skins and stuffed mushrooms in the dining room and everything was seriously amazing. It was so good that we came back tonight. We sat at the bar so we could here the music. We ordered drinks from a half irritated Brad, the bartender. We ordered the seafood skins again... More

This is not the first time we have had dinner here. I have been impressed each time. The food is phenominal. My husband and I split the prime rib, which was close to two pounds. They apparently do this all the time because they did this, put it on two separate plates and even offered us our own side. But... More

Once again we had a wonderful dinner at Captain Jack's actually located in Sunset Beach, CA which is part of Huntington Beach, CA. The food was so good and the service so very good. You have 3 - 4 waiters/waitresses waiting on you. Make sure you make a reservation before you go or go very early. It does open earlier... More
