Vegan Options at Captain D’s (Updated 2024)

Captain D's Vegan Options

The vegan options at Captain D’s are probably about what you’re expecting from a deep-fried fish and chicken chain. They do have a few sides you can choose from though and piece together a plate of food.

A Baked Potato with Broccoli and Corn on the Cob can make a decent meal.

Captain D’s Vegan Options

We suggest reading the disclaimers below before ordering. 


  • Baked Potato. Order with NO butter or sour cream
  • Broccoli
  • Corn on the cob. Order with NO butter. 
  • French Fries*

*French Fries are cooked in the same fryer as the chicken (but not the seafood for what it’s worth)

FYI: Seasoned Rice contains milk

Captain D’s Disclaimers: We picked out a few disclaimers within their allergen page information that we wanted to share here. One is a general cross-contamination statement and the other is an acknowledgment that franchise stores may deviate from company-owned stores. For this reason, I would absolutely recommend checking with your location with any questions/concerns you may have.

Please know that we practice caution and proper procedures when preparing allergen-free items, however, all allergens may be present in all of our kitchens. Be aware that there may still be a chance for cross-contact on shared surfaces, including fryers. Guests are advised to consider this information as it relates to their individual dietary needs. Please inform your server before ordering if you or someone in your party has a food allergy, sensitivity or other dietary concern.

The above information applies to our company-owned Captain D’s restaurants. Some of our franchised Captain D’s restaurants may use different ingredients in the preparation of some of their menu items.

*As with any restaurant that does not offer a 100% vegan kitchen, you choose your level of comfort when eating here. 

Captain D’s Vegan FAQ

Are Captain D’s Fries Vegan?

The Fries themselves are vegan, but they do share a fryer with the fried chicken. It’s up to you to decide if you’re comfortable with that level of cross-contamination.

No. They are slow-cooked with animal products.

Are Captain D’s Breadsticks Vegan?

We’re not sure and here’s why… yes, we have reached out to them and will update this when we receive an answer. According to their 2022 allergens guide, the breadsticks do not contain egg or dairy; however, they do contain 2g of cholesterol. Where is this cholesterol coming from? That’s what we need to find out. And also, if the dough has any animal based dough conditioners.
