Captain Jim's Seafood Market & Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Don't confuse Jim Hanson, fisherman and restaurateur, with the similarly named Muppet-maker. The only things Captain Hanson stuffs are the holds on his boats, with all manner of sea-flesh that he purveys to the top restaurants in town. Years ago, he put a couple of tables and chairs in his retail outlet and began dishing up smoked fish dip and fried clams for his customers to munch while they selected their grouper, snapper or dolphin. Today the full-service restaurant, adjacent to the market, is a huge draw for those looking for his signature crab salad and crab cakes, and Key West shrimp cocktail at rock-bottom prices. Atmospherically, the always-busy place is beyond casual (think plastic cutlery and rolls of paper towels)---a real local's spot. In addition there are entrées that go from simple (fried grouper sandwich) to sophisticated (grilled salmon over spinach). There's also a kid's menu, a handful of meal-framing salads and desserts, and a modest beer and wine list.
