This was on my bookmarked list so I decided to try it today since I wasn't too far. The place looked closed from the outside and today for lunch I was only one of 5 other diners here (and they are only open for lunch too).The place has a 'hushed' almost unfriendly vibe to it: the old waiter kind of slinks around although when he decides to walk up to you he is friendly in an aloof sort of way.The menu was a copy of a copy, run on a copier using cheap paper stock, and the print was skewed. Very sloppy. The menu items/offerings are GF (grain free) or P (paleo) or neither, just look for the letter code in front of every item. Also check out the black board for today's specials.I ordered the Ahi Tuna Salad and a side of Israeli Couscous: dang did it take forever to get. Did they go fishing for the tuna? Overall if was all good, not great, not worth a special trip, if you are within walking distance come over but otherwise go elsewhere to dine.My low grade is for overall feel, vibe, waiter and time it took for my food to show up.

First time we tried Captain D's, I couldn't believe how much money and time I'd wasted at the more well-known LngJohnSlvrs all those years. Cpt.D's food is far superior and a bit cheaper than LJS. Their basic fried fish is divine; has a wonderfully crisp, non-greasy crust and the pieces are sizable. I adore their hush puppies whereas those from the 'Other Place' would usually just go into my dog's bowl. I was somewhat disappointed by their gumbo, but that's really not a fast food dish, so one can't expect too much. Also, they offer like a dozen different sides including (*never thought I'd say this) Green Beans that are fabulous. My personal favorite is the Coconut Shrimp! OMG, this shrimp is so unusual, so delicious and so addictive that it should be listed as a Controlled substance. Sorry LJohn, but the Captain seriously outranks you and you've been demoted!
Beautiful and Cozy... This is not a place that will rush to make incredible food... You can tell that everything is scratch made... Yes, everything... If you are looking for quality service, incredible food and an intimate time with friends and family, then I highly recommend this place. My wife is still talking about how great my entree was... Southern Style Shrimp En Croute (shrimp in Herb butter wrapped in scratch made pastry). If I was in Death Row, this would be one if the items on my platter. Yes, I'm a Foodie!I saw the previous review and I wanted to say that on the menus it stats... That if you leave the tip section open on the credit card receipt, it will add 20%... Why write a bad review, because you didn't see it posted and/or didn't want to tip someone... Own it... Write in $0, if that's what you want or tell them what they did wrong...
Coffee: Great. To be sure, you can drink it without sugar or cream and the flavor is nice, never bitter, never burnt, and always fresh. Food: Excellent. Locally sourced, always tasty with a great variety and super high quality ingredients. It's pretty high end stuff really but without being pricey. Music: Superior. You can learn a lot of new (or new to you) artists just by listening to the tunes and running over to check the playlist monitor. Atmosphere: Unique. Plenty of variety to perch, set up to work or chat with friends. And they actually have walls filled with art that rises above the community college art student level. It's just high quality all around. And that includes the people you may meet if you are so inclined. It's very communal in that way, especially downstairs.

Former resident of NYC with a penchant for fabulous baked goods was delightfully surprised upon walking into this establishment in Casa Linda. With bated breath I waited for the doors to finally open, Kathy Tran, manager and her direction with her staff was welcoming, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The ambiance, delectable desserts and samples were first rate. Every product I tried was moist and flavorful. So much so, I find this my new hotspot for a discerning palate. Kudos to the amazing works of art created and the fresh ingredients used that calls one back again and again. It is apparent the owner of this establishment knows how to create a winning team. Sincerely,Mrs. Gwen Walker
Excellent fried chicken which is far superior to the big-name places. They also have tons of things which aren't on the online menu like sandwiches, catfish, fried livers & *corn fritters* which are 2die4 good! BIG portions of side orders like spicy rice (yummy!), fries & mashed potatoes. The only downside is they're often busy and it's not uncommon to wait, but their food is well worth any minimal delay. Actually, I was stunned to see they'd received two such low ratings here, so 4 stars from me is probably more realistic. Still, we've eaten at Williams 10-15 times and barring the occasional wait, I cannot recall EVER being disappointed with the food.
