Captain Groovy's Grill & Raw Bar Restaurant Review: You can practically feel the sand between your toes at this laidback Ocean View favorite that’s the embodiment of a cool Key West fish shack. But better to bite into the bronzed fish tacos between your teeth as chef and veteran boater David Watts is at the helm. East Beach oysters, a Rockefeller-riff, and sauces ranging from the saké sauce atop Bora Bora tuna (coated in honey-wasabi and rolled in panko before being seared and plated with pickled cucumber salad) to a rum peppercorn sauce finishing a grilled, bone-in rib-eye, distinguish this former Laundromat that remains a quintessential come-as-you-are destination. We also recommend the fresh clam strips and the one-third-pound, hand-patted burgers, as well as Sunday brunch with its Caribbean flair. Healthy options like pan-seared salmon over brown rice make it a popular hangout for neighborhood jocks as much as Parrotheads. All enjoy kicking back with happy hour drink specials and half-price half shells --- well-sourced ones at that.
