We are not huge seafood lovers but we wanted to give it a try while visiting. The food was good and plenty of it. But it was expensive! I wasn't expecting it to be $35 a plate! After we ate here we were told to only eat seafood that was local because it is fresh and not frozen. It's ok... More

I would have given this buffet a 5 star, however it is expensive, but they let you know that up front. It was $35 a person, not including drinks. The food is good and there is a ton to choose from: shrimp, scallops, crab, etc. Try the crab legs and Mac and Cheese! We always eat way too much when... More

They also feature salad and dessert bars with many options. The price was $35, but you... More

We did a lot of research on the assortment of all you can eat seafood buffets in Myrtle Beach before deciding on Captain George’s World Famous Seafood Buffet. It had the most positive reviews out of all of the buffets. When we first arrived at Captain George’s our first impression was it looked beautiful and well maintained on the outside.... More

They had a good variety of seafood with the crab legs being cooked perfectly and the clams were pretty tasty as well. The desserts.....wow! The ice cream was so creamy, which impressed me... More

First,buffets are not usually a favorite of mine ,however this one is really good. The restaurant is beautiful, the service is attentive and the buffet is constantly monitored and maintained. The hush puppies, fried shrimp, crab legs, and flan were my personal favorites.

Service was good yet food was inconsistent. Crab legs were perfectly cooked but The shellfish undercooked/closed or mixed together, or more topping than actual shellfish. The traditional food had a nice variety but meats (chicken, ribs, etc) were dry. Desserts were decent - with outstanding peanut butter cheesecake. Atmosphere was classy with linen napkins, clean, with multiple sections to give... More
