Captain Jay’s was founded in 2003 by a man with a vision: a restaurant that provides delicious food fast.   Captain Jay’s is not a fast-food chain and so it can not be compared to the typical fried chicken fast-food restaurants. It is a one stop shop, you can swing by and buy dinner for your family and pick up that gallon of milk or carton of eggs. It’s perfect and convenient for you!

Captain Jay’s is based on the American concepts of the pursuit of happiness, hard work and integrity. Bringing together, the delicious southern Cajun recipes, the crisp west coast’s freshness and quality, the swift east coast’s speed and efficiency, and the pure midwest’s heart and amicability is what distinguishes Captain Jay’s from any other establishment.

Captain Jay’s began to Detroit, Michigan and has quickly gained recognition and popularity for the its Cajun chicken recipe, zesty fries, fresh seafood and shrimp in addition to their home-styled sides like Mac & Cheese, and fried okra. In the last eleven years, Captain Jay’s has expanded to include fourteen locations spread throughout Detroit, Grand Rapids and Indianapolis.
