I went one time I was told about it everyone said it was a great place to buy seafood and perhaps sit there and eat or buy your seafood and cook for yourself at home great experience
I've been missing out. I've wanted to visit this place for years and years. Oh the good fish I've missed out on. Don't be like Cathy... go sooner rather than later.
Fresh fish market where you can buy or have it cooked to order. Fast service and lots to choose from. Great sides selections and I saw some awesome looking desserts. As Arnold says, "I'll be back".
The hype is real. This place was delicious. There was a line (because the place is so good), but we got served quickly. The fried shrimp was impressive.
Good fresh fish and tarter sauce. Definitely the best around central Indiana currently. It does taste similar to the fish of Stroh Indiana (Big Turkey Lake Tavern) but not quite as good.
Fresh seafood cooked while u wait. Good shrimp and fish. Sides good also!
Best seafood in Indy. Worked around seafood my whole life and hands down the freshest you will get in a land locked state.
Visiting from Lexington ky got the Whiting fish omg delivered got to try it if you up this way 5 stars yes
I looooove this place. Their caplingers special sandwich is to die for, it melts right in your mouth. Combined with a pretzel bun, lettuce, tomato, onion and their tarter sauce... *drool*
Their food is excellent! The quality and variety of fish is superior.
Love my Caplinger's (basa) special
Fresh seafood. Good desserts. Hush puppies
Great place to eat some basa fish..
Amazing food. Simple decor and a large menu
Loved the Platter! I couldn't decide what I wanted so I went with the platter. Coleslaw and macaroni and cheese were my sides. Yum!
Best seafood restaurant! Everything is delicious!
Delicious lobster roll, clam chowder & fried okra.
Good food. But to crowded
Best fish ever! Great service!
Best seafood in town, these guys are the best in the business!
Delicious!!! You must call ahead or be prepared to wait. Fresh fish counter or just cooked fish dinners. Best greens youve had
I absolutely love the selection of fresh seafood they have here. I normally carry out fresh items and cook it myself at home, but today my family and I decided to dine in as we didn't have time to cook at home. We ordered gator bites, catfish sandwiches, and crab cakes. Everything tasted the exact same due to the batter they cover everything with. It hides the true flavor of the seafood. Salt and pepper and breading was all we tasted and we left there not impressed. I give 5 stars for take out selection, but 1 star for how they cook and prepare. So I thought a 3 would be in the middle. If they'd ease up on seasoning and breading it would be a 5 star all around.
Best lunch I've had in a long time. Friendly and clean.
Great food. Smoked tuna was off the hook good.
I'd love to eat their more often but the parking is limited and usually full, so I have to pass it by. If they'd move across Shadeland to a larger space where LOTS of parking exists, they'd probably have more business, there wouldn't be problems between customers trying to park and I've seen police called in to deal with issues just in THAT small parking lot. PS, the Starbucks, Sport Clips, Donatos Pizza are also there. Good luck with the parking. I dropped Starbucks because a large black coffee at McDonalds on Binford BLVD near 71st is 99cents with the number 2 breakfast meal!
This place has amazing service. The only thing that tops the great service is the fresh and afforable seafood. The seafood is absolutely delicious. Caplinger's offers incredible value and their seafood rivals that of any seafood place in Indianapolis. I highly recommend this place for anyone who wants fresh and afforable great tasting seafood.
This place is the best seafood shop in Indianapolis. EVERYTHING that we have purchased here has been fresh and delicious. The red snapper, grouper, salmon and sea bass have ALL been fantastic. It is our "Go to" market for fresh fish. Highly recommend!
I'm from northern Indiana so in my opinion the fried fish here in the Indianapolis area is disgusting. The grease always is heavy on the fish and the taste is as if the oil hasn't been changed in at least three months but since I discovered Caplinger it is the only place that I get my fried fish from at least twice a month. I do not love any of their sides. But I can tolerate potato chip coin style potatoes. They definitely need to step their side game up but the flavor of the fish is spot-on and it is fried to perfection.
Epic seafood in Indiana! Go, go now, you will not be disappointed! Blue Crab po-boy is my favorite!
Never been there, but I'm confusingly asked repeatedly to rate my experience there. Everyone I know who goes there says it's excellent though I cannot stand seafood.
Great fish and seafood, great sides, great service. Diverse clientele. All are welcome. Pricey, cuz it's fresh and good!!!
If you want great seafood. You must go to Caplinger's
First visit and I was pleasantly surprised! Fast service and the Caplinger special and 2 sides were seasoned to perfection!
Love the special! Everything good here.
Best sea food in the midwest
The seafood was super fresh. We order a fish sandy and po boy. I think it’s ok. Nothing special. But the corn on the cub was amazing. Should definitely order a corn on the cub as a side.
I've eaten here several times, generally there is a consistent overflow of customers and staff is always pleasant. If you are able to call your order in prior to coming whether dining in or carrying it out will save you at least 15-20 minute wait. Heads up if it's busy they stop taking phone orders to catch up so don't be surprised if you get a busy signal.
I went there a week ago to the location on Pendleton Pike. I had the Caplinger Special and the fish had quite a few bones. I took two bites out of a whole meal and spit them out because of bones. I called the main office the next morning as soon as they opened and asked for the manager. A guy with a thick Spanish accent said he was the manager. I told him about the bones and he said "the fish does not have bones." I said "I don't appreciate being called a liar, and yes they do." He said "I no call you a liar but the fish do not have bones." So I asked to speak to his Superior, and he said that he wasn't there. I tried calling back several times, but it was busy. So I emailed and still have not received a reply, after waiting a week. I gave this review two stars because my fiance had Ocean Perch and it was very good. He shared it with me since I refuse to eat fish fillets with bones.
Had the grilled salmon entree w/ corn dusted in Old Bay, candied yams, and a side of lemon + remoulade. They also tossed in 2 hush puppies. Absolutely to die for. Will definitely be back!
I was very pleased with the meal I got . Friendly service and good sea food with many choices to pick from .
Excellent fish market. I felt like we were near the beach.
Cat fish dinner was awesome. This is a place everyone's needs to visit.
Food hot and flavor. Not fresh but tasty. Restaurant is clean and bathroom. The ice need works. It taste like water. But the food is a1.
Hands down the best fish market we have here now. The perch, catfish, hush puppies, yams and green beans was SO DELICIOUS!!!!! The only thing they need to change is the mac&cheese. Can't wait to go back!!! They also have fresh fish that you can purchase and take home to cook. The King Crab Legs are SO BIG that I am going to purchase some of them for Christmas for our annual seafood dinner.
Good food! We ordered our food and paid for it online. When I picked it up, waited a couple minutes for the staff to get the food from the back. Will order again! Wish they would open up a site on near the far Eastside (Cumberland area)!!! Love their seafood!
The food is always ready and hot tbe staff is AWESOME.
Had the fried oysters was pretty good love their sides
Best lobster roll in town. Everything else is fresh and great. Now that my office is.next door, I'll be here all the time.
Great place. Their food is great and has a little spice to it which I love. If you can call ahead you may want to do so because it will make your wait time just a little shorter.
We have had an excellent experience Every time. Food is consistently good. Not a chain. We feel very lucky to have such a quality fresh fish market that also cooks meals for there and carryout.
I ordered a catfish dinner to be delivered by Grubhub, I received the wrong meal took it back up there and that had a attitude with me the whole time. They gave me a side of red beans and rice that had an odor to it, my fish was not done and very mushy with hard buffalo fries. I am not happy at all!!
Amazing food. Reasonable prices. Cool atmosphere. (Very Busy)
Long lines and wait time but it's worth it. Seafood this fresh and good is hard to come by in Indianapolis. The Caplingers special sandwich is my go-to.
Food is perfectly seasoned, cooked to perfection. For the prices, the amount of food is beyond expectation. It's yummy!!
DO NOT ORDER ONLINE. We had the worst customer service today. We tried to order online, and received an error message and tried a second time. Received another error message. The third time we placed the order as cash it went thru, no error message. Unfortunately, the withdrew the money both times we tried and received the error message. It will take 48 hours for the funds to be put bscb into our accounts. Our to go on line order included 2 drinks. I had 3 bags of food and had to work my way up to the front to make the drinks to go. And there is a fountain machine behind the counter
Wonderful frog legs. All the food is wonderful.
Loved the Old Bay Corn on the Cob.
Gator tail, yummy...catfosh very good, mac n cheese well made and seasoned. Pineapple bread pudding amazing, sweet corn very good...shrimp was very good as well. Overall top quality experience
My wife says this is the best seafood she had in Indiana
Busy. Service good. Great choruses of seafood and sandwiches..
Great place! Seafood
I enjoyed the food. I'm from Dayton. I will return!
The absolute best calamari fries in the city! Oysters on the half where divine!
The location is small and crowded but definitely worth all of it! They offer fresh fish, seasonings, and sides to take home. If that's not your thing then order fresh food and dine in! Or order online and pick up!! I had the Smoked Tuna Sandwich combo with the Hush puppies and the flavor in the tuna was the most delicious I've had! It was similar to a hickory bbq flavor
This review is of the Pendleton Pike location, as I could not find it listed yet to review. DO NOT let the appearance of this location fool you. Had the Cap Special Sandwich, Hush Puppies, Fries, and Mac. Everything was phenomenal. The pretzel buns are the PERFECT carrier for this perfectly cooked fish. This earned a top spot in my lunch rotation, all for a fair price.
Definitely a spot I will visit again! Great food. Took quite some time, but it was worth it. Expect a wait, many people come here from work. You'll see people from every race and economic status. I love that!
First time visiting was amazing food. Extremely busy place and fast service
Very busy place. Have eaten there and bought jumbo fresh shrimp. Will definitely be back
Freshest seafood you can get in the Midwest. Everything is flown in fresh daily. Oyster Po' Boy is incredible.
Breading on the Caplingers Catch was extremely salty. I will ask for plain cornmeal or some other breading if I return.
Wait is long but it is worth the wait
Loved it! This is the closest restaurant to down south. The alligator bites are so good, Soft shell crab! I'm in Love, reminds me of at home in Texas and Louisiana. The customer service was impeccable, they were very knowledgeable about every question I asked. I'm very impressed
I'm from Philly & really love seafood. This was the best I've had in a long time. The clam chowder was Excellent!
For a second there I thought I was on the east coast. Great selection, food well prepared. Not cheap, and very busy, but a nice occasional treat.
I enjoyed the catfish fillet sandwich and shrimp on the side it was good but the tarter sauce which I’m glad it doesn’t come on the sandwich is HORRIBLE. It’s so easy to make homemade tarter sauce that would compliment the fish very well. I have a recipe.
Best fresh fish market and deli. Even the pork tenderloin is out of this world!
I’ve been here several times and the food is always amazing!
Nice Fresh Seafood Market & Deli Type Service W/Sandwiches & Dinner Platters...Pretty Tasty, Moderate To High In Price Depend'n On What U Get
For me it was ok. Wife's the seafood fan.
always good.. have you ever had a lobster roll and tried one for the first time it was so good
Random drive by. In town for a soccer tourney. Turned out to be the best seafood I might have had.
Everything is great! Reasonably priced. Go!
Phenomenal every time we go!! The fried fish is juicy and delicious. The sides are to die for, all of them!! I have never had anything bad here!
Surprisingly good seafood. The calamari strips were very flavorful. The salmon was juicy and well seasoned. The fish and shrimp were delicious. The rice and beans were bland and lacked flavor. All else was delicious.
This place is awesome and always poppin. There is always a great variety of fresh fish and sides to take home or eat there. On my last visit, I had a lobster roll, clam chowder, and collard greens. All I can say is wow!!! The roll and chowder were abundant with seafood. The chowder was creamy. The greens were perfectly seasoned without being too salty or greasy. Always excited to go back!!
This is a seafood places that specializes in the freshest catch cooked how you like fried or grilled. It has a very welcoming atmosphere by both decor and the friendly staff. They have homemade sides that take them way above the scope and scale of most food places nearby for about the same price. You can order a combo cooked to order for a wide range of budgets. If you are in the area you owe it to yourself to pay them a visit.
Worth the wait. Friendly staff. Try a sandwich combo with red beans n rice.
Best seafood shop in Indianapolis. There meals remind me of the fresh fish dishes I ate when I lived in Louisiana. Wide variety of fish in which to choose from.
Outstanding food, an service
When this place first opened it used to be the best. The macaroni I received with my meal, yesterday should a been free. Terrible. It looked and tasted like it had been mixed with some cheap cheese sauce and sprinkled with pepper. Yuck!
This place is amazing. It is always super busy but rest assured you can order online and miss most of the wait. The fish is fantastic and always fresh. The staff is very helpful. They will ignore any one using their cell phones while trying to order which is SO refreshing. The staff is knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions. I had only cooked fish a handful times prior to coming here askes for a recommendation and how to cook it. The gentleman recommended the basa and we order this almost every time. Make sure,to ask about their rewards program!
Caplingers is always busy for a reason. They have fresh fish shrimp and clams fir purchase or they'll make your meal cooked to order. The sides are excellent. They also have a small store of various seafood enhancements. You can eat in or carry out. My personal favorite is the fried catfish dinner.
Truely fresh top rate seafood. Some might consider it a little pricey but you will know where that extra money went when you eat here!
I come here often for fresh fish or a fish sandwich for lunch. Vicente is awesome. He will take great care of you every time. This is THE BEST PLACE for fish in Indy.
One of the best kept secrets concerning fresh seaford in Indianapolis! Caplinger's serves fresh fish that is seasoned to perfection. The icing on the cake is the fried okra. Even though the facility is small, the service is friendly and accommodating.
I absolutely LOVE Caplinger's! Their shrimp po' boy sandwich and hushpuppies are out of this world. I have been to this location and the Whitestown location and the quality is wonderful every time. Even the customers are friendly and gives you a small town eatery type of feel. Give it a try if you are in the neighborhood! You won't regret it!
Sweet potatoes and green beans have changed...
Food was greasy, over-seasoned and over-cooked. Bad experience
Best fresh fresh
Fresh and very delicious. Great service
I've never had a bad meal at caplingers! I know I can pick anything off the menu...and caplingers will cook it right! Every one there is friendly and helpful. They can be busy at times...I am okay with that because they don't take short cuts. They value quality over quantity....and that's what keeps me coming back.
OMG, why haven't I tried this place before? The food is awesome. 5 stars isnt good enough. If there was a 10 this place would get a 10. We had fried catfish, shrimp, grilled fish, collard greens, red beans and rice, and waffle fries. From now on I will drive the extra 30 minute round trip to get this fish over the fish, fry, and slaw restaurants. Highly recommend this place.
Incredible for Indiana. You can't find better seafood or fish. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful. You can get seafood by pound and get it steamed to go. You can get fresh or frozen fish, fillets, and fried fish sandwiches, po- bo's oysters, clam chowder, key lime pie. I live downtown, I SO wish they had a place in downtown Indy. But it's worth the drive. Parking is adequate. Not a fancy sit down place but has tables. Think the little seafood shack's along the Bay in San Francisco. Very clean.
Great tasting food. Often times deep fried food has a bad wrap but let me tell you these folks do it right! Be prepared for a little wait if it's busy.
This place is very popular at 12 in the afternoon. I ordered food for my Mom on the phone and got the order quickly when I came to pick it up. The food is amazing and they have a really nice fresh Seafood selection as well. I highly recommend for seafood lovers
Honestly very surprised by how great the seafood here was. As someone who is from New England, my standards are kinda high for stuff like this. They really blew me out of the water here. The food was fresh, tasted amazing, and wasn't too expensive either. The oysters were my favorite and quite large for the price. Seating is kind of hard due to the lack of space, but there is plenty of parking. Definitely a great place to come to if you love seafood. Not so much if you're bringing a large group.
I buy fresh fish often and it's great every time I grill! The seafood salad is an awesome accompaniment for dinner or lunch!!
I'm not going to write a bad review but I will say "Please add pictures to menu items"! LOOKING
If you want fresh fish here in Indy, only place to go.
Delicious food. Great Atmosphere
The food is good yes....but I have no idea why people enjoy rude you will get your food when you get it ATTITUDE they have obviously done some good 5hings but if you expect a normal experience dont go here
Caplingers special sandwich is insanely good. I get it every time. Sometimes had long wait times, but that's only because the food is so good. You must try it at least once!
Had the perch sandwich, it was pretty good
Great food. Interesting decor.
Very good fish sandwich, had the special and slaw. Looking for honey like you have in whitestown.
On our way to Michigan so we stopped and got some fried Tuna dinners for the drive. So good definitely one of our favorite places to eat!
Great calamari steak lightly breaded and fried.
The customer service is phenomenal. The fish was fresh, served hot, and bursting with flavor. I'm a first time guest at Caplingers & will most definitely will be a returning a customer!
Lines are hella long because of how good they are. A couple of their register people could be a bit nicer but it's probably just stress from the constant flow of customers.
Shrimp and Catfish was delicious. Tried Clam Chowder it was simply the best !
Best fresh fish in the city. Always over packed but that's because they're food is so good.
I went there as recommendation from a friend. I love fresh seafood sandwiches and they did not disappoint. The homemade buns with the super casual environment were awesome.
The food was very good. I got fried catfish sandwich. They have so many options and I know nothing about fish. I'll have to go back and try more things. The fries were delicious but weren't crispy which was a little disappointing. Still great though. It gets pretty busy around lunch time but considering the rush the wait wasn't too long. Less than 10 minutes.
Just down the street from me, FRESH FISH! Heck yes!!! Lots of wild caught options! (Other non wild caught staples like catfish and tilapia) Wonderful quality fish Service is supreme Pick any fresh fish and they'll cook it up for you or choose from their restaurant menu! I go for the fresh wild caught fish, the guys friendly smiles, and demeanor! I love this place!!!
Omg! The best. Shrimp po boy with a white horseradish sauce, side of fried okra, unsweet mango iced tea. In love
Always great food! Make sure to be able to wait. There is always a long ljne.
Wish there was an option on the coleslaw but the fish is consistent. I like consistency. I like hot fresh food and this is what you get here.
I had fish and shrimp dinner. It came with tartar and cocktail sauces, sides of okra and coleslaw. The fish was flaky, juicy and delicious. Shrimp was a little dry, but cocktail sauce was very well formulated.
Had fried shrimp. Extremely salty and I like salt.
Wonderful tasting fish! Haven't tasted fish like this since my childhood.
Great fresh fish. Loved the food.
Although we LOVE Caplinger’s, this venue is a disgrace! We went to our usual Caplinger’s but it was ridiculously busy for Good Friday so we decided to try the Lawrence venue. They should have called it “Caplinger’s walk-up fish shack.” This is not even comparable to the Zionsville or Shadeland locations!!! So much for our son’s 1 year old meatless birthday dinner! We were stuck with the Chinese buffet instead, but it beat standing in the 46 degree weather for some take-out.
First of all, we went on a Friday at lunchtime during Lent. Busy but people and orders filled in a timely manner. My shrimp po’ boy was fresh, delicious and filling.
Five Stars!!! Best Lobster Roll and clam chowder I've EVER had!!!
We went there today and had an amazing experience! There is no place like it! I recommend the Caplinger’s Special! Hope you get a chance to speak with the owners GREAT PEOPLE!!! Loved everything about our experience!!! Dr. Joe
The food was good, but they definitely need more space!
Best place in town to get fresh fish!! Top notch help from the guys behind the counter too!
1st time there so recommend. Great food friendly and clean
Best in town. If there's better... please share!
Purchased 2lbs of Basa/Swai; hubby broiled it with a dijon sauce and we devoured it! Usually we eat in at Caplingers but glad I was nearby to pick up fresh fish for our evening dinner.
Usually Caplinger's is fantastic, and the only place you can get quality fish. It's a nice place for a date and on average you'll spend $30.00 for two combos with desserts, but it's worth it. However, last night's meal was just gross. We had fried talapia and perch sandwiches, hush puppies, a side of chipotle slaw, and key lime pie. We made the order to-go. When we got home we realized the containers weren't marked and had no idea which was which until we bit into them. The fish, as usual, was quality but it was overcooked. The batter coating had almost no flavor and the sandwich itself was drowned in mayo. I'm not sure, but I thought their sandwiches came with tartar sauce or at least tartar on the side. Also, this thing desperately needed some citrus, but we didn't get any lemon. It's been a while since my last visit so I dont remember if lemon is standard with their meals, if not, they should definitely consider adding it. The lettuce was old and wilted. The slaw was runny and tasted terrible. The pie had a pale tan color like when you make it at home. I thought this might indicate it was made in house. But when I tried it, the flavor was really off. It was like an overpowering, sharp, artificial key lime flavoring. I only ate that bite and some of the Graham cracker crust. The rest I threw away. The hush puppies were also overcooked, and the same ones they sell in their frozen food section. They tasted great, but they're kind of small and you only get six. I thought this was annoying because it's just a fried ball of seasoned cornbread and they could at least give you a portion similar to a side of fries. The service was good and the staff were very friendly. But, the food was definitely only two stars and sadly the best thing I had was the refried frozen hush puppies. I'll come back because this is really not like them. I've been here a few times before and the food was always amazing. So, I'm hoping they were just having a bad night.
The freshest fish ever. C/S, AWSOME.
The service was good and the food was great
Delicious food. The best place for fresh seafood. Amazing quality and pricing.
I really love this place but the service is always dreadful. I'm a regular and it doesn't matter how I place an order it takes forever to get it. Sometimes they skip right over my number. When I am in line waiting its usually out of the door . Just wish it were more organized.
Fresh seafood in Indianapolis! Fish market, eat in or carry out sandwiches and dinners. Quick friendly service. Spices for sale also.
Great service, great selection and oh so tasty. The best seafood shop in town.
My only complaint is that they need more room, great food, good service
Fresh and hot! Some of the biggest oysters I've seen in the city, reasonably priced at @10+ per 1/2 dz! Even bigger than McCormick and Schmidts pricey multi-coastal oysters!
Always fresh and delicious, however this order was disappointing. I ordered the alligator tail meat and it was the skimpiest portion I've ever had (I order the gator often). It was good as usual just not what I'm used to getting for the amount of money it cost. I hope it's better next time.
Seriously impressed by the selection and quality of the seafood. Very affordable and very professional staff.
Best seafood I have ever tasted
So fresh so delicious I want to eat here everyday
I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. The food is always good and fresh. Our orders are always correct and the portion sizes are great. The customer service is awesome. We've been here many times and only had a small issue once but, they made it right.
Love the smoked tuna fish salad. Great people here, so many options to eat in or take fresh fish home to cook later.
Great fresh food. Wish there was one in Kokomo.
Wonderful lobster rolls & fried oysters. Others there suggested smoked tuna salad to take home, it was great too. Thanks for the coupons. Was worth the special trip Sat. Drive. The workers where very kind & helpful. We will come again soon.
Amazing everytime! Just drove 30min just to get a late lunch and get dinner for tonight. I love their soft shell crab sandwich, calamari steak, lobster roll, hush puppies, and all the sides. Love this place, menu and staff.
