The Captain's Tavern--Miami

It is a step back in time....entering The Captain's Table in Miami.  Charming, quaint and always packed with patrons.   This restaurant has been a Miami staple forever and the food they deliver is the reason.   Nothing pretentious...superb food.   The restaurant is dark and cave like since they have no windows.   But the numerous large aquariums add to the ambiance.   We were seated next to one and it was very enjoyable watching the beautiful fish.  
We began with the usual cocktails and beverages.   Nothing different here but the same old, same old.  The first item on the menu that caught my eye was the Stuffed Mushrooms.   We ordered them and split the very hot skillet they arrived in.   That set the tone since they were WONDERFUL!  The flavor, seasoning, stuffing....all perfect. Our next selection was the house salad...nothing unusual...crisp iceberg and a tomato.    
After looking at the extensive menu...we both decided on the Admiral's Platter.  The platter included broiled and stuffed  half lobster, fish, stuffed shrimp, shrimp scampi, scallops, Oysters Rockefeller for $27.00,   The extensive menu was all inclusive for a seafood house. 
After enjoying the our entree, we just had to try the Banana Cream Pie at $6.00.   The banana flavor was rich and creamy.   It was a great wrap up for a great meal.   This is a place I would return to for further exploration of their menu.
