Captain Jim’s Seafood Restaurant in Miami Gets Featured on The Hungry Post

An article from The Hungry Post, a popular foodie publication, featured Captain Jim’s Seafood last June 30th. Dubbing us as an “Anthony Bourdain Approved” restaurant, the author Diana Rodriguez sang praises about some of our best dishes. We here at Captain Jim’s Seafood are proud to add this title to our already impressive list of accolades received from other prestigious publications.

 Our seafood restaurant had its humble beginning as a processing center for fish that would be delivered to restaurants around the Miami area. Founder Jim Hanson slowly grew the business from a makeshift dining area in front of a fish case to the popular restaurant it is known as today. Years later, current owner Jeffrey Ross, a renowned businessman and restaurateur, stepped in and gave the place a much needed revamp. He reinvented the menu, keeping the crowd pleasers while adding a new twist. Since then, Captain Jim’s Seafood has been garnering awards left and right, including Trip Advisor’s Award of Excellence in 2015 and 2016, and New Times’ 2016 Best Seafood Market In Miami.
