This restaurant has the most amazing buffet I have ever seen. There is more of an assortment of food than you could possible eat. From the salad bar to the meat and potatoes to the seafood to the dessert area, the options are endless. The buffet looks like it is on a huge sailboat with masts and sails to the... More

This is a buffet, not a 5 star Gordon Ramsey syndicated, formal dining facility. That said, you are going to pay for what they offer. But, if you weigh your $30/person dinner tab against what you get from all the other places you've eaten at before, it's worth every penny. We spent 2.5 hours in there and ate more than... More

After a lot of research, we decided to go with this restaurant and we were not disappointed. You won't find a better calabash restaurant in Myrtle Beach. The food was amazing, atmosphere was beautiful, and the service was friendly. It was also kid-friendly. It will now be our go-to seafood restaurant when we're in the area.

This may be one of the best seafood buffets in North America. Buffet had so many choices I had to zero in on just a few. Most popular item seems to be crab legs and there are at least three types. Lots of different fish and shellfish as well as pork, sausages, ribs, chicken and beef. Salads and rolls available... More

We had a craving for seafood and this is the place to be. There were many choices to try and constantly re filled. Cornbread was a standout with crab specials, crab legs and shrimp rocked my boat. Service was excellent and very attentive.

If you like crab..And you're going to eat a lot, you may rate this better. Everything else at the buffet is just average at best. Lots of breaded and deep fried items. Very limited vegetable options. I waited for the broccoli to be restocked as there was only a few wilted pieces remaining, when it came out the employee put... More

Maybe I was expecting more quality over quantity based on the price of $35 per person not including non alcholic drinks. Pros: Tons of choices, Great Crab Legs, good service Cons: It's just ok. Nothing spectacular. Most dishes were overcooked especially the Prime Rib.. disappointing. We really can't say anything wonderful about this restaurant. It was just average at best.... More

Great remodel of the entry way since we were there. as usual, the crab legs were fantastic. The staff was very helpful especially to my wife who has limited mobility. One server even got her dessert for her. We definitely recommend Captain George's and we will be back.

Thank Bob B
