If you're looking for delicious seafood in town - either for dine-in feasting or carryout - Captain Dan's should be on your list. Captain Dan's Crabhouse is both a seafood market and restaurant; both offer a fresh, tasty seafood selection.
The waterfront-themed restaurant offers a relaxing atmosphere with full-service seafood meals and feasts. Captain Dan's restaurant offers great tasting shrimp, crabs, fish, and seafood platters. The Maryland Cream of Crab soup is creamy, buttery, salty, full of flavor, with large chunks of crab meat, and very rich. The shrimp are good-sized and spicy. Snow crabs legs are moisst and delicious, with good-size chunks of crab meat. Crabs are as good as any in town, but tend to be on the pricey side if you're not getting one of their advertised specials. Check the Eldersburg Eagle for their intermittent ads with current prices and specials. Crabs are fresh and tasty, with good-sized crab meat for crabs of respective sizes.
The service is responsive and friendly, but spotty on details, leaving customers to sometimes having to ask for silverware and napkins. Tap beer selections are limited - only Coors Light and Killians are offered - but bottled beers are plentiful, both for dining and offsite sales. Kids are welcome but the youngest ones may have challenges. Many of the children's high chairs were dirty or had broken buckles. The children's meals are good values, including the perennial kid's favorite, chicken tenders and fries. The restaurant is a great place to take the family to feast on crabs, have a seafood feast, or a crabcake sandwich. It's definitely not date material or formal occassion friendly.
The carryout seafood market up front has a fantastic selection of great seafood. You can either walk in and order or call ahead for carryout. Fresh selections include shrimp, fish, crabs, oysters, clams, mussels, and more. Get your carryout as is or have them steam your food for you. A full selection of sauces, spices, and accessories make a home seafood feast complete.
