The service was friendly, our server did his best despite having 5+ tables. The food was good: The 1lb crab leg entree was tasty, the crab cakes were acceptable (a little too brown after obviously sitting in the window for a bit). The food took a bit long, approximately 45 minutes; apparently the "circuit breaker" or something wasn't working properly. Overall, it was acceptable, friendly staff, and edible food. If you don't go in expecting much, you should be ok.
We've been to Captain Mas before, but I have to say this experience was the worst due to the fact that we didn't even get to eat there. Typically the food is great, but service is slow. If you know that going in and are prepared to wait, it's not too bad. For this particularly occasion, we wanted to go for Father's Day. We made a reservation and before we even entered the restaurant, other patrons were telling us to find another place to eat. After waiting about 15min to speak to someone (host, waiter, or otherwise), we were told that even though we had a reservation and there were open tables, we should find somewhere else to eat. We were advised that the wait for food was over 2 hours at that point. Apparently there had been some events earlier in the day that precipitated this issue. Either way, I could only see one waiter serving the entire restaurant, and I imagine the kitchen was understaffed given the long wait for food. It's disappointing because the food itself is great, I just think this place is poorly managed and understaffed. If you choose to go there, be prepared to wait (even on a "good" day) and have a backup plan.
The host was rude to our party and the other guests who were waiting to be seated at our reserved times. Apparently there was a 20 minute delay to be seated, which was expressed in a very rude nonchalant manner. Then, the manager came and told us all that it would be 2 hours to wait for any food to be prepared. Strange that would happen on a holiday. This restaurant seemed more like "Captain No Mas". I won't be visiting this one again. The parking lot was fairly empty too which means this may not have been a very reputable restaurant to begin with.
This was a horrendous experience! We didn't even stay for the food the service was so bad!!
Food was decent. They seem to be understaffed. Manager not engaged. Arrived 5 minutes early prior to our reservation. Waited to be seated more than 10 minutes because no one greeted us. Staff moved right at us but didn't approach. Finally shown to a table in the corner that had a coat rack beside it. The coat rack was left there and we had to move it every time we needed to get out from the table. Food didn't come out for more than an hour!!! And when it did it wasn't hot. Items were missing ( which then took even longer to come back out). I had to ask several times for my check. We order all you could eat but didn't get to experience it because a fire broke out in the kitchen and smoke came through the vent causing us to cough and my daughter's asthma to flare up. No apology from manager. No nothing. I probably will not visit this establishment again.
I waited at the door for 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged we had arrived. When we were finally seated it was 30 mins before anyone came to get our drink order. During this time I watched 3 other tables walk out. I asked the waitress how long it would take us to get our food. She informed me that a table ordered their food at noon and was not served until 1:50 PM. After being told this I thanked her and we walked out.
Mother’s Day early dinner. Was not crowded but took over 50 minutes to get food after ordering.
Food was okay but not nearly as good as the very high price tag.
Nothing special. Go elsewhere.
Food was great and our server Jason was awesome.
Stephen was a great waiter. He has a jovial demeanour and made sure we were taken care of without being intrusive.
The food was very good. We’ve tried lots of seafood places of a similar level, like Ford’s. In our opinion, Mas quality is much better.
Keep up the good work. We’ll be back!
Went on a Sunday evening and they had live karaoke, which would’ve been ok had it not been for the extremely SLOW service. Went for dinner at 6pm and didn’t get our food until close to 8pm because the servers were busy carrying on with the singers and the crowd. They blamed it on the dinner rush but when I can clearly see you by the bar giving hugs to everyone, that definitely put me in a fowl mood. Overall, the food was ok, definitely not worth waiting close to 2 hours. Will most likely get my seafood fix somewhere else, either Joe’s Crabshack or Red Lobster.
Great service. Very friendly. Delicious seafood. A little pricey, but blue crabs are expensive so not unexpected. Would definitely return if in the area.
I was in the city for a business and a friend of mine decided to have dinner. I checked Open Table to determine a good local restaurant. Captain Mas had a great rating so I decided we would eat there. It was a Tuesday and there was not a lot of folks there, but the food was wonderful, the service was great, and the atmosphere was on point. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any who would want a good meal
Great service! Owner came out to say hello, brought candy for the kids. Even had a nice boat to take pictures in!
Great food and service.
Captain Mas’ is a hidden gem. The crab cakes are the best I’ve had. The gator bites are meaty and tasty. The oysters are delicious. The food in not over breaded and cooked perfectly. This is a place you will want to return to.
The seafood and pasta at Captain Ma's is excellent and at a reasonable price. The service is always top notch. This is a great find.
We love Captain Mas. The only place in the area to get all you can eat snow crab legs and they are amazing! Entrees are great as well!
Horrible service and food, bartender had to host, bartend and wait tables.
Restaurant was clearly short staffed. We waited at the door for about 5-10 minutes before we got greeted. It took about another 15 minutes to get our drink orders. Then we placed our appetizer. Took about another 15-20 minutes before we got out. The only good part was the food was worth the wait. Service not so much. It was one server plus two managers it looked like for the entire restaurant including the bar. All in all, the server did a decent job with only having one hand. Looked like he broke the other or sprained it. Food was worth the wait but not much else. First time there, and agreeably the last. You can spend $100 at McCormicks and get a better meal with better service.
The food was AMAZING! The ambiance was so-so...but we will definitely go back for the food! The crab mac and cheese was incredible, and the mussels were the largest I have ever had in a restaurant. It is wonderful to find a place that doesn't overcook crab legs and also has SO much crab in their crab cakes! My only suggestion for improvement is to upgrade the wine list / options.
This is a hidden gem. The staff is very friendly, the food is very good. It's only challenge is that it is a little hard to find. It is well worth the effort.
If you are looking for a great seafood spot in Loudoun county it's worth the drive.
We twelve decided this was the most genuinely enjoyable dining experience we had had in recent times. Tucked away in a shopping center, it is a hidden gem well worth finding. The service from beginning to end was terrific, from wait staff to attentive owner/managers; we were made welcome. Each selection is made from scratch (NO Microwave on site!) and takes a little time. Everything is fresh, including chowder, soup and entrees. Significantly more accommodating and sincerely caring than most restaurants.
Disappointing...food was poor quality. (ie) fried oysters not fresh
We had fruit flies join us at the table. When we mentioned this to the waiter we were able to switch tables. When the flies rejoined us at the new table the maitre d' just kept saying this has never happened before. The food was ok but not spectacular. Maybe a little overpriced.
Under appreciated local spot. A good value with consistently good food.
This place is GREAT!! The food is excellent, and well worth the money, the people are friendly, and the best part is you do not have to wait for a table; there is always seating available! If you want the authentic seafood experience and you have not tried this place, you are missing out!
Nice house salad and seafood in itself was good. Had the boil for 2, which the sauce was an unexpected type of Louisiana style. No spiciness and more like a bouillabaisse. Like return in a pinch. Food was ok but not remarkable.
Reviews looked good online but when we arrived, at 7 pm on a Thursday night, there were only 3 cars outside. We didn't bother going in, not when every other restaurant in the area has lots of customers. Hmmm. BTW , I could only submit this by rating the dining experience - which we didn't have so those are not accurate.
Excellent seafood for a fair price.
Authentic and delicious seafood!!! The service was great as always. The only thing that I would say is that the televisions should be within view of all customers and not just within a particular area, and the music could be better.
Best seafood in the area! Everything that we tried from the menu was simply amazing. We love seafood and know good seafood when we see it.
Really lower than I expected.
Did not like it
So did the rest of the group
Great food and Great service!!
Finally a good place for seafood in Sterling area at a reasonable price!...great and friendly service
Took my 8 year old daughter during a visitation weekend. We had the seafood boil. It was different than the boils we have had at other places but it was quite good. The place is small and was not crowded. The staff were friendly and spent time visiting. I enjoyed it and would recommend for a relaxed casual dining experience.
Nothing tasted good. Mac-n-cheese tasted rancid and fried oysters were mushy--we were afraid to eat either of them. Server never came back to refresh our drinks, and there was a horrible karaoke thing going on.
Restaurant appeared nice was very excited to go but upon arriving the air conditioner appeared to mot be working. It was about 80 degrees and extremely uncomfortable
Food was very expensive and mediocre at best. $16 for a small cereal bowl of lobster Mac and cheese, a $30 combo platter with 3 small overcooked scallops, 3 ok grilled shrimp and a rubbery piece of fish, and drinks that were often empty and VERY SLOW inattentive service, particularly given that the restaurant was barely 1/3 full. Restaurant was swelteringly hot as well. Doubtful we will return.
Food was below average not worth the price. Service slow and was not crowded. Air conditioner was broken.
