A local fast food joint, not much else to say. Prices are a little high for the type of food served and not much of a menu. Service took awhile because the place gets so busy and there aren't many people working behind the counter.

In our opinion, Capn Yobys, have the best fish and chips in town,. Not to mention, the tartar sauce. You could almost eat the tartar sauce with a spoon. It's that good. 😊.. The workers there are always polite. They get your meal to you...More

Went in there one time, about half an hour before closing. The person behind the counter handed us a menu, then when we tried to order told us "the grill is already closed." Left the restaurant, and never went back.

Their halibut fish and chips are so good and I love their tartar sauce. The decor is not too swift and the place is a little dirty, but the food is great. My wife really enjoyed her hamburger as well.

Adequate service, reasonably tasty fish, hot fries (chips). The Cap'n has been here for years, and has recently switched from generic whitefish to halibut (supposedly). I haven't noted a significant difference.
