Typically, seafood buffet have lots of mediocre food. But everything we tried was delicious. There is a huge variety - items we have not often seen at other buffets. We especially liked the Cajun crab legs and the Norfolk special.

We had an excellent dinner at Captain George’s. The place was very clean and upscale. They had oysters on the half shell and many types of excellently prepared seafoods. All was cooked perfectly. Highly recommend this place.

So many options. Especially for some of our family that includes some picky eaters. It’s a little pricy but if you can eat your weight in seafood, it’s worth it.

No, there is no senior discount. Few places on the Outer Banks have them. A lot of restaurants, including this one, do have Early Bird discounts though. So if you go early for dinner, during specified hours, you will save... More
