We ate here several months ago during Sister Weekend #1. It is so good with a great selection of seafood that we are back during Sister Weekend #2 and it's even better! A greater variety of stuff that I have never tried before but love including frog legs! Definately has become a Sister Weekend tradition.

This is the best seafood buffet I have ever been to. The choices and varieties of food are amazing. Not only do they have unlimited crab legs, but mussels, clams, oysters and crawfish are on the list of things you can try. We come here every time I come to town.

We dined at Captain Jim's for the 1st time after attending the Motown show. The buffet had a nice variety of items. It was also nice you could choose whether or not you wanted crab legs and they would charge according to that preference. The only improvements we would recommend is a better variety of vegetables and desserts. Overall it... More

Was very pleased with how fresh it was. Could have used a little more seasoning on the frog legs and calamari. The food and service were overall very good. Cheryl Grantville, GA

Great place to eat seafood like a calabash at the beach. All you can eat crab legs and the fried shrimp is awesome!! Reasonable price for the all you can eat. We visit often!

Unplanned trip so skipped the dinner shows but wanted a decent meal without the wait. Was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food for the price. Definitely a better choice than the over priced LONG wait at Joe's Crab Shack. We'll be back for sure.

Fair price for decent seafood. Will most definitely come back over Joe's Crab Shack any day of the week.

We stopped in for dinner. The waitress was Renee, she was very friendly. The seafood was great, quite a selection. Restaurant was clean. The twice baked potatoes were really yummy.
