I was extremely disappointed in the buffet. Only found one seafood choice that tasted good. The salad choices were good, but $30 for salad is not acceptable.

This was my first time going and I loved it. The food was hot, and they kept the buffet trays full of food. The place was crowded but there was plenty of space for everyone. The waitress were nice, and had a lot of patience. I will b coming back, I loved everything!

The food, atmosphere, and the prices were horrible. If you know anything about seafood you know chewy is not something you want. The waiters and waitress were nice though.

This was our first time eating at Captain Ben's as it was within walking distance from our hotel. A wide selection to choose from but we found the seafood to be extremely salty. The waitress was very friendly and prompt.

We were there on the first night that they were opened since the remodeling. New carpet and paint were added to the facilities. We started our meal with their homemade hush puppies. Then onward to table after table of wonderful food! There was something there for everyone.

Compared to many other all you can eat buffets; this one is horrid! Small list of items, lack of taste, dreary setting inside. GO ELSEWHERE!!

This was my second visit. There is so much food!!! We tried some of everything. The collards and mashed potatoes were delicious. They never ran out of snow crab legs. My sister in law and her husband had pasta from the pasta bar. You choose what you want in your pasta dish and you have numerous choices for sauces and... More

First time to Myrtle Beach. I was extremely impressed and thats hard to do for me because I work in customer service. But the restaurant was clean, the staff was friendly, and the customer service was excellent. I would advise anyone visiting Myrtle Beach to try this restaurant. The food was delicious!
