Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

Seafood sounded good and other reviews weren't bad, so we went. We're not locals...just stopped for a night while traveling. We walked in and saw two employees, both apparently engaged in activities other than greeting and seating, although it was hard to tell what they were doing. After a few minutes in an uncrowded restaurant, a bus boy told us someone would be with us in a moment. A woman appeared. She didn't greet us but picked up menus and said "follow me". We did. She seated us in a booth, pretty much threw menus on the table, and gave one of us silverware wrapped in a napkin. Then nothing. For too long. Except for stares from people at other tables, as if they were wondering why we were there. After about 10 minutes, we left. No one said anything as we left. It was abundantly clear that we'd crashed some kind of private party and were unwelcome. Never again!

Met a friend who I haven't seen in over 20 years, and picked this place because it was halfway between our homes. The food was very good and the price was extremely reasonable. The service was outstanding. Our waitress, Summer, gave us plenty of time and privacy to begin catching up on our lives, but was totally attentive once we were ready to order. She kept our drinks refilled and checked on us periodically to be sure that we had everything we needed. Very pleasant experience!

I have been to Captain Larry's on several occasions. The latest occasion was for a family birthday party of six adults. Five people ordered a variety of seafood dishes which were very good. A sixth person ordered a pork chop special which he loved. Generous portions for very reasonable prices. I highly recommend.

Broiled Seafood Platter was good. Clam Chowder was better, Hush puppies good. Dinner salad was very good. I would stop again.

After some time (years) family decided to give this local eatery in Laurinburg another chance in December 2017. It was HORRIBLE! Service as slow as molasses outside in the bitter cold weather that cold week there that effected most of the south. Waited a good 10 min before we even got anything to drink and another good 10 before the staff came back to take the order for goodness sake. Order took forever as the staff seemed to have no idea what VEGAN or GLUTEN FREE meant much less what it was and when it came food looked HORRIBLE and was GREASY GREASY GREASY! Management is still RUDE RUDE RUDE. Only eat here if nothing else in the area is open!
