While visiting North Carolina in the 1970's, John Hondros, Steve Kakouras and Spero Stathopoulos were inspired by a seafood restaurant in New London, NC named Pat and Mick's. The three family members followed their new dream of opening a restaurant of their own. Thus, The Captain's Cap Family Fish House was born on November 20, 1981, in Gastonia, NC. The restaurant's menu featured a salad bar, signature fresh seafood dishes and fabulous steak and chicken plates in an all-you-can-eat fashion. This turned out to be just what the folks of Gaston County wanted. The new partners motto became "Just give us a try, and we know we'll see you again." Two other family members, Kosta Zaharopoulos and John Mageras, later joined the trio. With Their combined help, a second restaurant was opened in Belmont, NC (1994) and then a third location in Denver, NC (2001). The Captain's Cap management and staff strive every day to fulfill a common goal that has been achieved in grand style for nearly three decades: To serve great seafood at a reasonable price in a clean and friendly atmosphere. The Captain's Cap invites you to visit and dine with them or order your meal to go. Either way, you know it was prepared with care.
