    Great location overlooking the boat launch and river and lots of park areas with picnic benches. Your order at the counter and they call you when ready. The BBQ I had on my first visit was outstanding but on my last visit the burnt ends were not the best, so will skip those next time. Pulled pork was excellent though and their mashed yams are really good.

    I like that you can arrive by road or water. Ordered a platter for the family and everything was very good... even the beet and goat cheese salad was impressive. Only let down was the coleslaw which had no flavor.

    Highlight of visit: Pulled pork was the best!

    The location is awesome and although the building and inside are really nothing special their BBQ is really good, and sitting outside in the Bings facilities is a wonderful experience. We love watching life on the river while enjoying delicious BBQ.

    Highlight of visit: The Captain’s Combo offers variety and their sides are all excellent.

    I enjoyed the BBQ here but didn't think it was as good as all the hype. The waterfront location is awesome but inside is nothing special. Nice eating outside and watching the river and its activity. Parking was kind of haphazard with people not obeying any kind of order. Brisket was the best with the chicken being too dry. Couple sitting close by said the smoked turkey was the best! Maybe we'll try that next time.

    Wasn't as good as I had heard. We usually get Smokin' D's on US 1 and thought we'd try Captains for a change, and although it was quite good we much prefer Smokin' D's, their meat has more flavor and their sides are definitely much better. The location of Captains is very cool and would be very nice eating outside in warmer weather. A bit on the pricey side too.

    Very nice location with easy access by car or boat. Staff was friendly and ordering easy. The meats in the Grand Slam Combo we ordered tasted great and was very tender especially the brisket, the collard greens were also very good but the cornbread was kind of gooey and the mac & cheese tasted like it came from a box. Overall though this is very good BBQ in a fun location and will be back to try more.

    Highlight of visit: The smoked beef brisket and St. Louis Ribs.

    Had some good BBQ here several times but brisket yesterday was dry and not so flavorful. Their baked beans are awesome! Outdoor dining is great and fun to watch the water activities.

    Perfect location and really good BBQ! You don't expect a fancy place when it comes to good BBQ but a great location really makes for the experience. I could sit for hours watching the river and it's activities while eating this delicious food. Been here several times and never left disappointed. Thanks Captains!

    Ordered the sliders and the Bait Bucket and each were excellent. The smoked beans cornbread were both really good but the potato salad was a let down by being mushy and bland. Staff friendly and food was ready quite fast. Location is amazing and their porch is a nice place with a southern feel and it's pleasant to just sit enjoying the meal while watching the river and boats. A great place for good food and a nice relaxing time on a sunny afternoon.

    By far the best BBQ around! Meat is very tender and falls off the bone. Sides are delicious too. Great sitting outside but inside just so so. Good location to walk off meal after.

    This is a local legend and not to be missed if you visiting the area. It not only has the best BBQ around but the best backdrop too! Service is great as well. Stop by from the road or by boat. Can't be beat.

    Nothing spectacular just a run of the mill BBQ joint. Sonny's much better. The only thing this place has going for it is the location.

    Not so great inside but the location is amazing and worth getting your order to go and finding a nearby picnic table. Food is very tasty and definitely the best BBQ around. Good sized portions at reasonable prices.

    Inside is a mish mash of bait shop and BBQ restaurant and is very much a plastic plate and paper tray type of place, but the food is really delicious! Love their ribs and pulled pork and all sides are all very good. Beer could be colder sometimes! The location is awesome and it's a great place to eat and then go for a walk around the park and trails. Best BBQ around here for sure.

    A nothing fancy counter style order pay and wait type place, but the food came out quick and was very tasty. The pork was not greasy and cooked to perfection with just the right amount of smoke. Nice selection of sauces and sides. Location can't be beat. We will be visiting here often. PS: I rated the atmosphere for the location and not the inside which I'd give 3/5 stars.

    Highlight of visit: Pulled Pork Plate

    I've been a local since the 70's and I've tried Captain's Bar-B-Que 3 times now. I am originally from N. Florida and I KNOW Bar-B-Que! It should be soft and falling off the bone! I hope you like standing in line because that's the deal here, and then someone brings your order after you finally find a seat.

    Captain's is honestly the DRIEST Bar-B-Que I have EVER had! Except for at The Anchor, and even there the waiter wouldn't let me pay, but Captains didn't offer a refund, and when I said how unhappy I was the LAST time, the manager just said, "Oh let us know, when you come in next time and we will make sure your meat is good." - WOW!

    Both the Chicken and the Ribs were DRY DRY DRY. I have seen good reviews but those people MUST be from the North and not know what they should expect of great Bar-B-Que. It was originally a tiny Bait House, so there's the history.

    They smoke it all on a timer and the staff just check and turn it on the timer, and NOT by looking at it - huge mistake. The Best things they have are the desserts and iced tea.

    Order your BBQ and find a spot on one of the many picnic tables around the landing and park area. The view and setting make the BBQ taste great and go down even better. Their dinner plates are a feast and I really love the collard green sides. Apparently this is one of the top 10 BBQ's in the country and happy it's here in Palm Coast.

    The bait bucket is a funny name, but a flavor explosion in your mouth! This restaurant is casual, you can sit outside and view Bings landing while you eat, but don't expect fine wine. This place has ruined me for barbecue anywhere else (other than my husbands); no more Sonny or Woody ever!
