Try Our Famous Lobster Roll

Try the mouth-watering lobster roll at Captain's House for a taste of the sea in Gary, Indiana. Our most popular menu item, like the rest of our menu, contains no artificial or processed ingredients. We offer dishes made with seasonal foods at the peak of their flavor, all in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere appropriate for the whole family. Numerous gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options are available. We shop at Farmer's Markets in season, and our owner selects all of the fresh fruits and vegetables.

Fresh Seafood

Our seafood comes from different parts of the country and is always fresh. The cod comes from the Northeast and is dipped in a beer batter and served on a hoagie. You'll love our tuna salad and our sweet crab sandwich as well. We are contracted with a local bread maker to develop our traditional lobster roll, which is grilled on both sides, stuffed with lobster salad, diced heirloom tomatoes, and lettuce, as well as drizzled with clarified butter. Other popular seafood dishes are shrimp and grits as well as our lobster macaroni and cheese.

Versatile Menu

Try our pork or chicken salad, which come with seaside chips, or the chicken pot pie wrapped in phyllo dough. We are known for our chicken and waffles breakfast. We serve amazing sandwiches made with meat we cook in-house and then cut down, including turkey, ham, roast beef, and pulled pork.
