There's a place in Litchfield serving some great seafood and other tasty choices, but you'd have to look for it if you weren't in the know.
It's our job to put you in the know. LOL
So, at 13057 Ocean Highway sits a eatery celebrating 20 years, known for fabulous fried fish, seared scallops and grilled shrimp. They also have garbage fries and a pizza burger. Opposite ends of the culinary spectrum, but hey, it works. Again, 20 years.
But, what people are focused on is safety. The pandemic has frightened many people away from dining in. Rightfully so.
Captain John's Seafood Grill is practicing safety guidelines that assures people and comforts them while they eat. We tested it. I asked a waitress about a particular table and she informed me we could not sit there due to social distancing. Passed with flying colors. The staff were all wearing masks, too.
John wasn't in the night we dined in, but he told us new owners Karla and Brian would take great care of us. They sure did. The Scallops Florentine was a great way to start the night.
The spinach blended so good with the perfectly cooked scallops. They were fresh, too.
The Garbage Fries were a definite eye catcher. Title alone sealed the deal. But, when it came to the table and begged to be stirred up, I had to comply.
The steam arose with the aromas. Oh, yes, that chili underneath screamed for attention, it arose from the steam like an actor or actress appeared from behind the curtain. Glitz and glamour - with flavor - in a small app.
The last time I had a pizza burger was when Roz Wyndham was open at Atlantic House Restaurant on Screven Street in the City of Georgetown. That burger was excellent.
This one was right up there. You'll love the fresh, homemade marinara. The gooey mozzarella cheese sends this burger into flavor overdrive.
You can't eat at a seafood grill without having a seafood platter.
We chose the grilled option. Would you just look at it, friends! Yes, it tasted as good as it looked - and it looked awesome.
It's a favorite for us, for sure.
