I went to this restaurant back in October 2013 and it was great! I had the scallops and my dad had the shrimp and the deviled crab. My mom had the shrimp. Food overall was good. We were there on an off time and there weren't any people there. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone going to Myrtle Beach!

We have wanted to try a seafood restaurant in Calabash for many years and decided to ride down from Myrtle Beach and find one. We didn't have a clue as to which one to try but wanted to have a view of the water. When we came to Captain John's - it fit our needs exactly. We immediately found the senior menu and picked out what we wanted. My husband got shrimp and deviled crab and I got flounder and deviled crab. Everything was delicious! We paid about the same here for a great seafood meal as we would have back home in Burlington, North Carolina. We now have our Calabash restaurant when we visit Myrtle Beach each year.

My family ate here last summer and we were so happy with it. My nephew has a form of autism so it's very hard to go places with him. Captain johns staff was very understanding and so nice. It made my made nephews day and he's already asking if we can eat "at that place on the water"!!! We never go out while on vacation because of the issues and responses we get from other people around us. Thank you so much"!!!

Have been going to eat at Capt. Tom's for about 25 years. Best food at the beach and consistently good. Great wait service and friendly management.

My wife and I traveled here from WV. We liked the surroundings and the food was great.We had the seniors dinner and was well leased with the price too. The man who took our order was very good, and took good care of us. Some the reviews on here were bad, but would probably complain about their mother. To Capt. John's management keep up the good work! The review by an employee downgrading peoples review, only makes the company look bad. \R. G. Charleston wv

This is a fantastic restaurant. The food and atmosphere were both great. I will go again and again. Anyone that would say otherwise is pathetic and I would not want them to be in the same restaurant with my family. Cannot wait to go again. Keep up the good work.

We were quickly seated, which was a nice surprise, since the restaurant up the road had a 75 minute wait! Of course, this also made us wary of what to expect. We were quicky greeted by a wonderful waiter, Erwin, who was very friendly and knowledgable. We ordered the chowder, it was very good. I had the flounder and my husband had the scallops. We both thought the food was excellent and our service was above average. Will definitely go back, I would certainly recommend. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and water view, although we opted for a booth, which was further from the windows. Thank you Capt. John's for a nice dinner!

Had 9 reviewers in my group today. Hush puppies were perfect and plentiful. I did have one voicing the opinion that the flounder was a little dry, and 2 that said it was only soso. The other 6 including myself gave them 5 stars across the board. Hot, fresh, and plentiful.

There were three of us from Tennessee for supper July 7 about 6pm. As we came into Calabash most of the restaurants had lines out the door. No line at Captain John's and we were seated right away. I had a Fuzzy Navel that didn't seem to have any alcohol. I had the senior fried oysters that were good. We all liked the hush puppies. My husband had fried shrimp and our daughter had a small lobster tail. Two hours later I threw up the Fuzzy Navel three times and lost all my supper. Was a horrible night. Evidently the oysters were bad. Our server was nice and tried to keep up but he had too many tables and too many people to serve.

I've been to cap't johns many,many,many times out of the last 20 years.they have a beautiful view of the calabash river with docks that constantly have shrimp boats coming in to dock with their fresh catch for the day.they also have large fishing boats at their docks that you can either go out for 1/2 day or go to the gulf stream for a whole day.when you get back to the dock after your wonderful day of fishing,you can get your catch cleaned right there on the dock before ever leaving......wonderful! now as for the food everything i've ever had to eat there was absolutely excellent! once in a long while the hushpuppies aren't scalding hot, but if you will say something right then to your server they will straighten that out asap for you.....i read a review from someone that says 6 mins tops in a hot fryer......sir you have no clue as to what you are saying.....everything at cap't johns is cooked to order and that includes the hushpuppies! what most of us need to realize is that is a very large resturant,and our little table isn't the only one in there.....but never the less we are always treated as though we are just as important as all the rest and taken care of in that fashion!remember calabash style means lightly breaded,lightly fried and yes the small shrimp....i don't eat seafood in calabash anywhere but cap't johns and it might be to your advantage to return and try it again,you might be very surprised!.

The batter used in which to fry the fish did not taste greasy. Everything we ate tasted fresh and home made. Our waitress, Jean, was really good. I was impressed with she remembered items we needed and the way she picked up on what we liked and we would need before we even asked.

Our family stops at Captain John's every time we go to the beach. The atmosphere was great, and was also before the remodeling. We ate the seafood platter and the sauteed shrimp. Sandra was the best. She brought our food promptly and kept the tea coming.

The fish fried so crisp it could hardly be pulled apart. The shrimp over breaded and soaked in grease. The deviled crab so small it was funny. The baked potatoes small and tasted like it was baked three days before and let in the oven. The clam soup tasted like water with a couple of over cooked chewy clams in it.
