First Mate (linda reminds me of Cap'n Gus).


I do sort of remember Spanish Galleon. Where was it? Didn't it have a ship facade? I always thought it was fancy.

I remember Zider Zee. Been to Spanish Galleon and Christie's. First Mate and Fred's Fish Fry would qualify although mainly take out! If memory serves "Spanish Galleon" was on San Pedro on west side of the street. North of Oblate and south of 410 or Rector. Yes, the spanish Galleon had the facade of a ship. Unique but didn't survive long!

Speaking of Cap't Gus. I did some work at Kens TV back late 80's or early 90's. Went through a studio that had the old Cap't Gus prop. Simple plywood cut in shape of the boat tucked away behind other props. Kinda sad!

The Bayou on the River (cajun, but had great fish)

Pelicans Wharf is long gone. It turned into, among other things, a swingers club!

I recall First Mate, as a child I used to be afraid to go because I thought Capt Gus would be there! They would give the kids little plastic ship whistles. I used to get the fried oysters and remember losing a baby tooth while eating corn on the cob! I also remember using a hot-air hand dryer for the first time. I didn't know how to turn it off and told an employee it was broken!


I believe the San Pedro Zider Zee location turned into Spanish Galleon after it closed.

Nobody remembers the BOSTON SEA PARTY, on 410 a little east of North Star Mall? I think I only went once but I recall it well. You could buy either a steak or a lobster, then you would get appetizers, sides, hot seafood items and desserts from several buffet tables. I remember the dessert table blew me away! I think it cost $20....

My family enjoyed the food and ambience of Shuckers and we dined there often. Their broiled seafood platter was amazing. Never knew why they closed. Of course, Christies was the hands-down favorite.
