The Captain's Boil - North York
The food was great but the overall location was very conjested. There wasn't a waiting area, people were just standing by the door waiting to be seated. There was no hostess to greet us or take us to our table- we had to walk into the middle of the restaurant to try to get someone's attention to ask for a table. Just very unorganized.
Understaffed kitchen, slow service, and ran out of key items and sauces.
Expensive for what you get
Best clams in Toronto, really good snow crab, shrimp was a touch overcooked but the seasoning was dead on for everything. Not everybody spills the bags all over the table to start like they do with crab and other seafood feasts down south, but don't be afraid to get your hands messy!
Overall it was a great experience. It wasn't busy when we came, and have asked for a boot. But was refused and given a table for 2. I don't think it was enough space for what we ordered.
the captain source is amazing and unique, but the shrimp is not fresh,
Messy! But pretty tasty. I'm not a huge fan of having to work so much to eat food I paid for but it made it kind of fun!
I will go again!
The food an ingredients are amazingly fresh! Definitely better than Hot'N'Juicy in the U.S. My friend and I did the whole crab special. The potions are big so if you have a small appetite, stuck to crab legs. We also order chicken wings and rice for our sides which were delicious.
The entrance is tiny, not much space for people waiting. Overall the place is amazing. The food is great and the service was great.
The only issue I have is apparently they don't know how open table looks. My Reservation was for 1:15. I arrived at 1:20. Thru told me they had given away my table as o was half hour late. Apparently they had my had me booked for 1:00. I ended up waiting 20 minutes to be seated.
The food was great and I would definitely go again!
