I've haven't visited this location however, the restaurant in Virginia was on a scale of 1-5 that it was a overall 5. I now live in the Fort Lauderdale/Miami Florida area and have found none to it's equal. I'm so disappointed that we don't have a Captain George Seafood Restaurant here.

The crab legs and shrimp were steamed to perfection for easy peeling. The fried foods were not greasy / all buffet items were at correct temperatures. Service was great . Look forward to eating here again ps the desserts were great,specially the lime pie and flan.

My family and I visited Captain George's Seafood Restaurant for the first time in Myrtle Beach. I've visited Myrtle Beach many times but never had the opportunity to eat here. The food was excellent, fresh and plentiful. Other restaurants served crab legs on their bar but you were only served one cluster of legs. Here, you could pile your plate high with good full clusters. I which there was a Captain George's closer to my home town. We are still talking about the good food and our experience at Captain George. Even though the cost of the food bar was a little pricey, the food was good so I didn't mind paying the asking price.

We vacation every year in Myrtle, and eat at Capt. Georges every year at least once during our stay. And we usually are in a party of 12 or more. We also have eaten at some of the competitors, but none compare. Service is always great. We have had Stacey(male) several times now. He is awesome. Best buffet on the Grand Strand

The food was cold & old - not freash & hot as it should be! If you are a true seafood lover, go to a real seafood restaurant. You can eat all you want there but that won't take long. The value for the money is very bad. This was the only bad meal that I had at Myrtle Beach!

We were down from DC for the week and this was the place to go. Great crab legs and other food was really great for a buffet. The service was unbelievably good. Lindsay was excellent and really took care of us. $31 per person during the week of the 4th was well earned for what we got. And Yuingling was $3 a pint - who knew! We'll definitely be back next vacation!

While there was a wide variety of seafood, the price was astronomical. There was an issue with their credit card reader, which caused many patrons to sit for 30-45 minutes waiting for the staff to figure out what to do. The servers kept saying "it'll be a couple minutes". The manager was not sympathic, and only offered excuses & a half-hearted apology for the"inconvienence". He refused to take any off the bill, or even offer a discount on a future meal. He kept blaming the credit card company, and in no way tried to make it right. This was just the topper to a meal spent listening to a 2 year old who did not know how to behave in public and parents who did nothing to control their child. There should be a section in this massive building to sit families with young children, away from adults who are trying to enjoy their over-priced meal and carry on a conversation without having their guests repeat themselves constantly due to ill-mannered children. Why would you take a 2 year old to a $35 per plate restaurant anyway? Get them a happy meal & leave them with a sitter. Unless your pockets are deep and you don't mind dining with ill-mannered children, I would stongly recommend going somewhere else. By the way, they calculate your tip at 15% and add it to your check.

We were seated next to the entrance to the kitchen even though the place was empty. The food was dry. The shrimp and scallops were previously frozem, fried and then thrown under a heat lamp. Most of the seafood was imitation crab meat. Disappointed. For thirty dollars a person I was not expecting mushy canned vegetables and imitation crab. Hey but it's all u can eat lol.

It was our first time dining at Captain George's and we were blown away! We did not have to wait long to be seated and the hostess was courteous. The atmosphere left us in awe. It is elegant but with a look of being on a ship. Our server was professional and polite. The food was awesome! They have huge crab legs, oysters, shrimp, scallops and so on. The salad bar had everything and the dessert bar was amazing. We give this place a 5 star rating! A friend of my husband's recommended this place. I told him to tell his friend and his friend's wife THANK YOU from me! We give this place a 5 star rating!

As far as buffet's go, this is the best I have had in Myrtle Beach. They have an wide variety of food to eat. If you can't find anything there, you are just too picky! Price is a bit high, but if you don't get your money's worth, it is definitely your fault!

I will never be back to this restaurant. My husband and I come to Myrtle Beach several times a year. We have never paid a food preparation tax at any restaurant. We had $50 gift card and when we received our check, it still cost $30 . State tax and FOOD PREPARATION TAX! You can keep Captain George's. We'll take Bennett's Calabash.

Every time we vacation in Myrtle Beach we always visit your restaurant several times. We found these to be most enjoyable.Not only for the excellent food, but because on one of your managers.. Josh. We would like to compliment top management on your selection and placement of Josh whom on several occasions was very attentive to assuring us that our visit was both pleasant and noteworthy.

My husband and I went to Captain George's 2 wks ago. We made one trip to the bar to find alot of over-cooked food, or food that was all gone.We did select a few things however and tried to eat them,but couldn't.We got up,found our server and we left free of charge. We both expected sooo much more. This place is always busy.But it has to be because of the pretty building.Not the food!!!! We are locals also.

The food at Captain George's was good and our waiter Roman was very attentive and courteous but I think you pay more for the building than the food was worth. Mind you, there was nothing wrong with the food, but 30.00 puleeeezze.

A quick synopsis of our visit, ... we drive by and see a hundred plus cars in the lot, lots of people... it's our first time... it must be good. Wrong ! We wait to be seated, this is a big place as we walk the maze to get to our table. We are seated...no menu, a lovely young girl comes over and with her foreign (hard to understand ) says it will be $31.50 each !! I ask my wife, "did she say $31.50 " ? We decide to give it a try, lots of people remember... If you love fresh seafood, at a good value...go somewhere else ! The flavors of frozen seafood and institutional creations were not worth $31.50. Our final bill $72.83, tea was $2.50 a glass plus tax. I say again, Find a local place with fresh seafood, I won't go back !!

First time experience. We arrived about 5:30 pm on a Tuesday first week in August. There were just two of us so we were seated within five minutes. The restaurant was very busy. Food choices were great. The staff kept the trays full even when it was busy. We were not rushed. Noticed a lot of families. We are locals and this was a treat since we usually are too busy. We would highly recommend this restaurant to visitors and locals. It's a buffet so come hungry.

I have eaten at the Captains Georges in Virginia Beach and Myrtle Beach. We vacation in Ocean Isle Beach, NC which is about 45 minutes from Myrtle. Every time we visit Myrtle Beach to shop at Broadway at the Beach we eat at Captain Georges. They have a good variety of food and it was always good. The only thing I did not like was the she crab soup. Way too salty. The service is very good and the place is very clean. We plan on coming back in August and hope the buffet is still to our liking.

We ate at Capt. George's on May 29. It was our first time eating here, but it certainly will not be our last. The quality of food served here was outstanding. The service was excellent. We have nothing negative to say. It's rare to eat at a buffet where the food is this good. We will eat here every time we visit Myrtle beach from now on. By the way, the price is $31, but on Sundays from noon-4PM the price is $26.

The food was super!~!~!~ Service was good, but I did have to ask for another glass of tea, I gave out her bringing me one. Even though she clearly saw I was in need of it. Atmosphere was fine, decor was super~~very clean!!! Value for the $$$~~it was somewhat costly, $84.71 counting tip, for the 2 of us. But, it was very good, we really enjoyed the food! No time to be seated, but, it was 6: p.m. and June 3rd. 2011. Maybe not so busy yet.? Most places you eat at have some level of sounds going on. Nothing too bad here. Over all, we will be back there next year!!

I am currently sitting at my table in captain Georges and felt driven to write this review. From the service to the food to the cleanliness of the bathrooms, this restaurant gets the big old A+!! My party of four waited about 30 seconds to be seated and hit the buffet just a short minute after that. The food is great and a pitcher of yeungling was only 8 bucks. I will deffinitely return every trip to MB!!

What a beautiful dining experience! Our family has been visiting this restaurant for several years. Not only is the food outstanding, but the the staff is excellent. You are greeted when you arrive by such friendliness and truly a sense of caring. We look forward to seeing all the friends we have made when we visit Captain Georges. The seafood buffet is by far the best in the Myrtle Beach area. The crab legs are so good! The decor is very beautiful and makes your dining experience even better. Josh, you are the greatest! Keep up the good work. It is truly evident that you have such a sense of pride in providing the best food and service possible.

We live in the myrtle beach area and frequent captain georges. It is our favorite seafood buffet with all the crab legs you can eat....it is truly a bargain. Went there today april 30 and experienced very poor service. A waiter approached us first, seated us and took our drink orders and our buffet request. Then a waitress in the same area jump at our table with asking for our drink orders, omg, what is going on here? we want the same waiter the entire time we are there, no sharing tables and asking the same ???? over again. Never experienced this before and was disappointed today. No need for the two waiters at our table. Very confusing and they were confused when we checked out too, a long wait and our credit card in their hands..... We approached the managers area, no more of this....also no scallops on buffet, love them....

My experience has been outstanding every time I've been to Captain George's. The food was great and john, one of the managers, was very accommodating to my requests. even the bathrooms were spotless. I will definitely be dining there the next time I'm in Myrtle Beach. Chef Juan cooked everything that was ordered in my party to perfection. The other managers, josh and joe, came to my table to check on me because there was not any blue crab on the buffet. They gladly brought some out for me. Before I left I recieved Matt Vigari's (the general manager) card who I didn't get the pleasure to meet. Everything was great.

The reviews from people who think that they're going to get a 5 Star meal at a buffet make me laugh (as do the people who think that $28 for all you can eat is exhorbitant [try living in NYC]). For what it is, Captain George's is great. They accomodated my vegetarian girlfriend, which was refreshing. The Crab Imperial was excellent, the crab legs were good, and the rest of the seafood was of varying quality (which is to be expected.) Desserts were weak (as they often are at these places), but on the whole I would gladly go to the Captain's again.

The food was terrible. Family members got sick. There was a hair in the salad dressing. The price to eat at this restaurant was way too expensive for the quality of food. The dessert bar was disgusting looking and there were people running all over the place. Since we were never there before and did not know what to expect, it was the worst meal we ever had. I would never recommend this restaurant and I honestly do not understand why it is still in business. At $28.99 per person, the 4 of us didn't even come close to getting what we paid for. We have went to classier restaurants with better food for a lot less. This was a very disappointing experience, one we will never make again.

I read all the reviews, and Captain Georges seemed to be one of the few restaurants that actually had some good reviews. I showed up with seven family mambers expecting to wait, eat bad food, suffer through poor service, then be overcharged for everything. We showed up at 5:30 pm and they sat us within 10 minutes, primarily because they were trying to seat a group of 22 just before we walked in. The sevice was great. The food was good for a buffet. Remember, it will never be as good as made to order. The prime rib was worth it to me, not to mention the crab legs. The desert was also good. I like rice pudding and flan and coconut cake. I didn't care for their key lime pie. It averaged $ 35.00 per person and that included a couple beers. I did have a $2 off coupon perperson. Overall, it was a good experience.

This was our 2nd visit to Capt George's. First time, a yr ago on vacation we we're delighted. This time, we left empty and disappointed. Quality of food was acceptable at best. The price for two people, came to almost $100 for a buffet. The wait staff did a good job, but did not make up for the over priced, low quality food that was served. Might be time to think about being more concerned about quality and customer service/experience and less about quantity and acting like a military mess hall. We will not go back to Capt George's again.

ive been to captain george's before in williamsburg, va.. the food was better there but i have to say in myrtle beach it was good. i would definitely try and go on sunday or with a coupon, yes it is pricey but the quality is much better than the other chains in the area. we were there during the july fourth weekend and we didnt have a wait. i would definitely go back as well as my friends that live in surfside beach. they have tried several other buffets in the area and said non compare to this one.

Most of the food was very good. Was disappointed in the fried shrimp, had a bad taste. The key lime pie was terrible, very artificial flavor. The fried scallops were wonderful as were the peel and eat shrimp and the crab legs. Would have liked more fried options, especially clams. This Capt. George's just not as good as the one at Virginia Beach.

Overpriced, for 28/person you can get a decent meal at any chain restaurant for way less. The quality of the food was awful, but this what can a person should expect to get for a buffet directed to serving hundreds of people. The waiter was attentive even though there were only two waiters working a large room. The chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cake and chocolate eclair had a banana flavor. How does chocolate cake have a banana flavor? When the waiter ask about the food I said bad and he apologized for us having an unfortunate experience.

Best buffet in Myrtle Beach. We go there everytime we visit, my husband dose not like seafood so he has the prime ribm which is awesome. You pay about 70.00 for a party of two, but you get what you pay for, all the other buffets are out of a box and really not worth eating. The resturant is huge so seating is no problem, this is the only buffet we ever go to

Captain Georges has great atmosphere and delicious fresh food. Three members of my family require a gluten free diet. The Chef, Juan, came out personally to review the ingredients of each item at the buffet! He was patient, understanding and very accommodating. He even made special gluten free food and had it brought to our table. Our eating experience was excellent! Huge buffet with great food and very attentive staff.

For the price of about $33 each the food was terrible. It was even terrible for $15 each. Food was cold or luke warm. Salad had bits of cellery that was brown. Some of the fruit had rind still on it. Over all I was soooo disappointed. For $33 each I was expecting perfect food. It was terrible! WIll never go again.

Really disappointed and overpriced for what was offered on the buffet. Had to wait for the food to be replenished. Prime Rib very thin/dry. Steamed shrimp mealy, tuna dry, crab legs cold and salty. A lot of empty trays and lots of waiting.... Service great. Waitress picked up old plates and served fresh drinks w/out asking. Dessert bar subpar. Some items bitter tasting and hard as if been sitting for a while. Will not try this restaurant again. Had a coupon for 1/2 off second dinner but felt price still too high for quality of food received.

Our experience at Captain Georgeís buffet was not good. Most pans were near empty, with food lukewarm at best, yet still overcooked. For example, we found two pieces of tuna in one, three pieces of salmon in the next, a few scraps of Mahi, cool broccoli, and on and on. My wife nibbled at a few items, couldnít stomach most, and settled for a couple things from the dessert table. I tried to make the best of it by eating as many crab legs as possible--but the diminutive crabs who'd donated made that a difficult task. Altogether, more than enough to rate this restaurant near the bottom of a very long list. What keeps Captain George's from last place was the service. When asked how the food was, I explained as gently as possible the many failings. Our waiter immediately fetched the manager, and the manager was willing to have the kitchen prepare for us any dish that we had found unsatisfactory. I believe it was a sincere promise, but by then my wife had lost her appetite, and I had resolved to try to get my value out of the crab legs. That turned out to be impossible, as the oily margarine dip did in my ambition before I could break enough of those tiny legs to make a meal. For what it's worth, we went to the restaurant on a Monday night, about 7:30 p.m., on March 1, so it was an off day in the off season. There were not twenty customers in the place. I suppose in many ways, this is the most difficult time to keep a buffet appetizing when the pans empty in half-hours or hours rather than minutes, but that is the business Captain George is in. Given that each person pays more than thirty dollars for the privilege, the restaurant needs to deal with the conditions as they are. Ultimately, they only charged us for one meal. Even so, with drinks, tip and tax, the bill was about forty-five dollars. Given the food we tasted, at that cost, even understanding the circumstances, and with sincere apologies and attempts at amends, itís a pretty good bet that we will not be going back. I commend their willingness but am unimpressed by the execution. My suggestion would be, if you walk in on a slow night and the pans are near empty, consider walking back out. Or, perhaps, try for early rather than late.

We visited Myrtle Beach for s long golf weekend and was terribly disappointed in the quality of the food and the rudeness of the manager. Upon paying our bill we discoverd (after we ate) that the receipt says no gift cards accepted except for Captain George's. The manager belittled us and made us feel unimportant. $160 for the 4 of us and we didn't matter. He only wanted money and not customer service.

My family and myself have been visiting this establishment since it was new. I have always recieved great service, and great food. Yea, it is pricey, but you pay for what you get. I have been there in the off season and also in peak times such as in June. The food and service has always been awesome! I am hooked! Do not try any of the chain resturants like Bennett's. Don't waste your money with them. Captain George's is the only way to go!

We arrived for the "early bird special". There were only 4 other tables occupied, and thus, no wait to be seated. Service was prompt and efficient but not terribly friendly. The buffet was extensive but hardly anything on it was hot. Most of the entrees were lukewarm. Prime rib was available as a special order item. I ordered one, and it was very large but quite thin. Some of the desserts were good but most seemed to come from instant mixes. The pudding in the banana pudding tasted like the canned variety. Overall, I felt the meal was horribly overpriced, especially for food that wasn't even hot. I sent a complaint to their corporate office but they didn't bother to respond.

i had taken my husband to capt. georges on 10/20 for his birthday. we have been to capt georges many times, but i am sorry to say that our last few visits have been less than desirable. on this night a whole section of the buffet was out of order. we went up to get an order of crab legs that was luke warm,ans my husband had got scallops and oysters they were cold. we told the waiter he went to the kitchen to bring more out. our waiter was great but the food was horrible. most of the food was greasy and luke warm. they were out of she crab soup,which took 20 mins to get from the kitchen. itv was a tuesday nite, hardly close to busy. when you spend $70.00 for dinner the food should be top of the line. we will never go back to capt. georges again, this is not our 1st bad experience at this location. we have been to va. beach and williamsburg and never a bad meal! this location has got our last dollar!!!!!!

when we went to georges tonite for my husbands birthday as we walked by the buffet one large section was out of order, but they stated everything was still on the buffet. started with the legs which was barely warm. my husband got the scallops, oysters, and steam shrimp which were also cold. we said something to our waiter he said he would bring us our food from the kitchen if we wanted. i had wanted some she-crab soup the container was empty, so the waiter went to get some from the kitchen that took 15 mins. everything on the buffet was greasy.our waiter did the best he could but they should have told us about the problem when we went in, because this is not the first time we have had a bad meal here, and the only reason we tried it again is because of the reviews that were on this site. never again for 65.00 and no drinks they have got my last dollar, never again!!!!

They said everything was fresh, and the crab stuffing was to die for! They spent 2 hours in the resturant just eating, cause they didn't want to leave! You can find a $2 off coupon in any of the books! Will definately go back!

Horrible. I will probably never eat at another seafood buffet in Myrtle Beach again! Now, that's not true. We've been to others and they were fine. I thought this would be good because of its ad but I guess if you have to advertise it a lot (which they did) they've spent their money on ads and not good food! The fried shrimp were those little popcorn things and underfriend and soggy. Nobody ate them and they then brought out another big panful of undercooked greasy shrimp. I couldn't believe it! I think the cook on Friday night was drunk or something. The fried scallops were the best thing I found to eat - they were sea scallops - but they, too, were a little overcooked as they were a little tough around the edges. The crablegs were all you could eat for $28.95 but they were watery and therefore tasteless. The steamed shrimp were served cold and overcooked also as they were impossible to peel! None of the strange looking baked fish looked appetizing so I was afraid to touch any of it! The best things I had was the salad and the chocolate chip cookie. I hated paying $30 for salad and a cookie! I would never return to Captain George's in Myrtle Beach. P.S. I know good seafood because I lived in Maryland for 40 years and this was not good seafood!

My wife and I were very disappointed in the place. Especially the waiter named Steve R. The total bill for the 2 of us was $70.20. All we ordered was the buffet, sweet tea and a sprite. We got there around 8PM and the food was running low at that point. The crab legs were too salty the chicken wings were terrible and other food (looked liked scallops) was not fit to eat. Because of the price being so high, I asked the waiter about a senior citizen discount and he was very sarcastic with his answer. I guess he didnít think that I qualified, but I bet I'm old enough to be his grand paw. I only ate one plate of food, which contained crab legs, one chicken wing (yuck) one piece of fried fish, fried shrimp and steamed shrimp. He said something like, go ahead and knock out the crab legs, put us out of business. We did give him a tip of 2 dollars but I think that was 3 too many. My first and last time eating there, also noticed that they didnít have much business.

We had been to Myrtle Beach the past 2 summers and went to other seafood buffets and looked for a new one this time. We found Capt. George's after reading other reviews. Yes, it is still a seafood buffet, however the atmosphere and ambience is that of a regular restaurant. We were there in the end of August so it was not as busy as it may have been in July but still full. There was a good variety of food, choices for anyone. The dessert bar was just as large. My 3 year old loved it all! I liked the idea of having 2 waiting lines for groups. Also having the crab legs on a separate bar was good planning. We will be back again and recommend it!!!! there are discounts at different times and coupons in all the beach books.

Out of the 50 things on the buffet I could only find a handfull of things that were tasty. Not worth the $$ I would recommend the Bonefish Grill if you are looking for some good seafood in Myrtle Beach.

I am from seafood country and was not as excited about the food here as I thought i'd be.the service was great and the decor beautiful but the cuisine was more that of a fine dining establishment than of a typical myrtle beach seafood house.the food was slightly over-priced to me...we had a party of two adults and two small children and our bill was $140 including tip(no alcoholic beverages,just dinner and sodas).i didn't feel that the food warranted such a high price-i've had better seafood on the grand strand a lot cheaper......

It is a little pricy, but that is seafood for ya. We have family members leaving today for Myrtle Beach, so I called right away to tell them that they had to eat there. We didn't find anything to complain about. We sure will dine there again and we can't wait to take the rest of our family!!!

Fantastic food and excellent service by Mike M. Go there and ask for him. We have never been here before,asked around and was told this place was good. It is better than good. All the food was fresh,we went at 3pm on Wed 8/5 and Mike M was a wonderful waiter. He treated us better than any restaurant we have been to and traveled from the south end of Miami Dade County Florida. We have visited some very expensive restaurants on our trip and this was the best so far! The crab legs were big and they even had steamed clams! Bathrooms were spotless too. These people have their act together! Thanks so much, we will spread the word you have excellent food and excellent service. Give that young man Mike M a management position!!!

Va Beach, Virginia

There are A LOT of seafood buffets in Myrtle Beach. But the preponderence of the restaurant reviews I read seem to allude that the more nautical the place looked, the worse the food was. We played it safe and went with Capt. George's. They have one in our home town of VA beach, and it is always good. The Myrtle Beach one was just as good, with a very good selection of fried, raw and steamed seafood. The acid test -- The Crab Legs -- yielded large, easy to peel and flavorful meat. The land lubber selections were good, particualrly the blackened pork. My wife said the desserts were really good too, but I had no room. Our server Josh was extremely competent and very friendly. I've been to bad seafood buffets -- I guess the only gripe (from my wife) is the price ($150 with tip for 4 - with the coupon) and the fact that we could have stayed home and ate there.

We ate here the week of 7/20/09. We chose this place after carefully reading all the reviews of the seafood buffets on this website and we made the best choice, this place is awesome!! The inside of the place is very upscale for a buffet place, took no time at all to be seated. They have 2 lines, one for small parties and one for parties of 6 ( i think ) which is a great idea. If you dont find something on this buffet you like, then you are nuts! They had everything, even mac n cheese and it was terrific!! I had some baked tuna, mahi mahi, some salmon and all was wonderful! they have many delicious deserts to choose from too! My husband ate about 4 plates of the crablegs, he said they were awesome! You must go here if you are looking for an awesome buffet with truly delicious food!

SUPER! We are NC natives so we frequent MB yearly and like everyone else fall victim to the over priced disgusting buffets! Well not this year, prior to our trip I stayed on this site for hours reading reviews trying to decipher the disgruntled customer from the genuine people. We went with CGSR and WILL be going back yearly. Our family of 4 (2 yr old, 12 yr old, me and hubby) ate for 88.00 on a Sunday night (drinks included)....Ok if you can't find what you are looking for here you are BLIND. The raw oysters were TO DIE FOR, my hubby laughed they were gonna kick him out for eating so many. They have 3 trays of Crablegs hot and they keep them coming non stop. Their fried scallops & oysters were awesome, not too much breading. They have 2 different seafood casseroles one was ok and the other was fantastic it had real crab meat it in and tasted like a crab cake but with a cheesy topping SO good! They also had Ahi Tuna, Blackened Mahi Mahi, boiled shrimp...& Oh the small clams!!!! They were SOOOOO good, they were cooked in a scampi type sauce and just melted in your mouth, the larger clams were just steamed. They also had mussels with a spicy sauce that were great too. Big secret~> There are 2 lines 1 line for parties of 4 or less (wayyyyy shorter) and another line for parties of 6 or more. We waited less than 2 minutes to be seated and our waiter JOSH was awesome, emptying our 'scrap bowls' as fast as we could fill them and refilled our drinks always. My husband apologized for drinking so much so he brought him 2 teas..lol...hey it gets hot down there. I know some people have had great experiences here and other maybe not so great but I am here to state my honest opinions after visiting several others (Sea Trawler, Benjamins, Giant Crab) that we think Captain Georges is by far the best, food wise, and service wise, and Oh the BEST part, a lady goes around making balloon animals for the kids!! We came home on the 14th and my toddlers turtle is still kicking. Georges also has 5 dollars off if you come before 4pm!!! Please try it!!

While on previous vacations in Virginia Beach we visited Captain Georges Resturant and were hooked. We were delitghed to discover a Captain Georges in Myrtle Beach while on vacation there. Captain Georges Resturant is a very important part of our vacation experience. We are planning on dinning at CG's this year as well. The seafood is excellent! The other meats and side dishes are yummy. I try to get a little bit of everything but it is impossible because there is so much on the buffet. It is a feast for the eyes and delight for your mouth. The price is consistent with other seafood buffets in other states as well.The difference with CG's and other seafood buffets is that CG's beats them all because of taste and variety. There is something for everyone's taste. Did I mention the desserts? Where else but in America could you get such a great deal and have confidence in the quality and cleanliness. Aren't we so blessed?

Every time I come to Myrlte Beach I have to eat at Captain George's. The food is excellent, the seafood is especially wonderful, and the friendly staff is the same. The price is a little steep but not outrageous. Because I usually get there early, the time to be seated isn't bad. And on an ending note, I think Captain George's made a wonderful gesture of kindness by putting some of the state employee's meals on the house during the fires.

What a waste of money. We had heard great things about Captain George's. I was on the verge of anger when I left after my dad and I had dinner (I also had a lemonade). Somebody forgot to put crab in the crab cakes, the scallops were actually sticky and gummy, the fried shrimp were way undercooked, the roast beef, er....prime rib as they labeled it was dry and tasteless, and I could go on and on. It is because of Captin George's we have decided to never go to another seafood buffet in Myrtle Beach. WAY overpriced and the food honestly is not that good. Even the desserts left a lot to be desired. IT is sad when I can say that the best items I had on the buffet were the cut watermelon and the frozen custard. AVOID THIS PLACE!

I always come to Captain G's SF Restaurant everytime we vacation in Myrtle Beach. Having tried the other Capt. G's restaurant in VA beach, this one is one of the better seafood restaurant in the area. The price is on par with just about all other seafood rest. you go to, especially the ones with crab legs. As with every seafood buffet rest. you will find something you like and something not to your liking. But over all the food was exceptional and above average, as with the atmosphere and ambience. The service depends on who your server is, but keep in mind that they are there just to bring you the drinks, taking drink orders and removing empty plates, so don't expect first class service. After all, everyone come for the food, not the service. I will

I have eaten at this restaurnt one other time it was excellent then and is still very good! We went early around 4pm I would recommend going between 3 and 4 , they are not busy yet and all the food is fresh, you definitely get your money's worth here. The crab legs and peel and eat shrimp were the best, the salad was very fresh, stuffed mushrooms and maui was good also the rest of the seafood was very good. A few things on bar were luke warm, that or I had to much on my pl ate and it was warm when I got to it stick to the seafood! My son says the pork chops were good , desserts were great but kind of pricey but if you are going to do a seafood buffet while you are at myrtle beach this is the one to try! Well worth the money.
