The dining room of the Captain D’s in Posen seats 22 and features the brand’s signature coastal design. Vibrant colors and décor create a fun and welcoming atmosphere where friends and families can come together and enjoy a wide selection of classic seafood meals expertly chef-crafted and cooked fresh to order. Favorites include Captain D’s famous Batter Dipped Fish – hand-dipped into a signature batter prepared in-house every day, hand-breaded catfish fillets and the giant fish sandwich. Popular sides like golden brown hush puppies or coleslaw are mixed and prepared from scratch every day in the restaurant.

The Posen restaurant is part of a historic seafood tradition that began when Captain D’s Seafood Restaurant first opened its doors in Tennessee in 1969. The brand’s commitment to serving quality seafood at a great value has been the core mission from the beginning.

“Hardik and I are so happy to bring Captain D’s unparalleled guest experience and freshly prepared seafood at affordable prices to Posen and the surrounding area,” says Tina Patel in a statement. “We are dedicated to ensuring our restaurant is a place where Chicagoans can share really great seafood in a warm and family-friendly environment at an unbeatable value. The community has welcomed us with open arms, and we look forward to celebrating with them at our grand opening event.”

Fueled by a continued surge in franchise development, Captain D’s is a rapidly growing concept. The brand is slated to open multiple additional new restaurants on the heels of its Posen debut and further fuel its Midwest expansion over the next several years. This latest opening is the first of several Captain D’s planned for the Chicago area, including a new restaurant in Matteson, Illinois, opening later this year.

Headquartered in Nashville, Tenn., Captain D’s has more than 540 restaurants in 23 states. Founded in 1969, Captain D’s has been offering its customers high-quality seafood at reasonable prices in a welcoming atmosphere for more than 50 years.
