About Us:

Captain Stanley’s Seafood Restaurant was founded in 1986 by LeVerne and Paula Stanley. The Stanley’s mission was to provide the best Calabash Style seafood at an affordable price and with great customer service.

LeVerne grew up in Brunswick County, North Carolina and began fishing and cooking seafood at an early age. In 1965, he began working with his uncles who owned a calabash seafood restaurant in Oak Island, NC. This is where he got his first look into the seafood restaurant business as he worked summers while attending college. After a successful high school teaching and coaching career, the Stanleys decided to open their own seafood restaurant in Raleigh.

Originally the restaurant was located on Tryon Road. As the business grew, Captain Stanley’s moved to a larger building at the current location of 3333 S. Wilmington St. The move was greeted with much success. Over the years Captain Stanley’s has developed a loyal clientele that is the basis of the restaurant’s success.

After a seven year hiatus, the Stanleys reassumed ownership of the business in March 2012 with the same commitment to excellence as when the business was founded. The Stanleys are as passionate as ever about delivering the best quality seafood at the best price. The Stanleys look forward to serving you and your families.
