This regional chain offers fresh seafood from the East Coast and beyond. Specializing in Maryland-style and Outer Banks-inspired seafood, the same areas where its sister stores are located, this buffet is a step above the fried-fish feasts served at some of the Grand Strand’s all-you-can-eat restaurants. Captain George’s food, atmosphere and Broadway at the Beach location make it a popular pick among buffet fans.
Captain George’s puts out a spread of some of the freshest seafood on the Eastern Seaboard. Operating its own fleet of fishing boats, this is one buffet that can actually use the phrase “fresh catch of the day.” Steam stations serve up piles of crab legs, mussels and clams while the raw bar features ice-cold oysters on the half shell as well as peel-and-eat shrimp. Hot dishes include the broiled, grilled or fried fresh catch, including Mahi Mahi, Salmon and Pollock. The Norfolk Special is an offering of crabmeat, shrimp and scallops sautéed in a garlic-butter sauce, and the Seafood Casserole includes all the seafood-lovers’ favorites in a creamy, breaded blend. Captain George’s also offers landfood, such as prime rib and grilled chicken, and lots of side items, such as baby potatoes, corn on the cob, steamed rice and vegetables, are included in the all-you-can-eat feast. Soups, salads, breads and desserts are also on the buffet, including their famous hushpuppies, and a limited a la carte menu is available.
It’s hard for a buffet to pull off any other kind of vibe than free-for-all casual, but Captain George’s is about as upscale as it gets. The classic, nautical-themed decor and an ornate dining area that is spacious and comfortable provide a relaxed setting compared to the rat race found at some buffets.
Our experience was wonderful. We have eaten there several times on vacation and each time the service and food was excellent. The food is always fresh, plentiful and delicious. However, the best part of our last visit was the attention and service that we received from our primary server. His name was Alec P. It seemed to us that he enjoyed his job and did anything he could, to make sure we were well taken care of during our visit. Alec was absolutely one of the best servers we have ever had and we wanted others to be aware of his value. Please convey our thanks again to Alec and we look forward to our next trip to Captain Georges.
Camden Food is fresh. Atmosphere is nice. Friendly servers & Clean.
All right so this is the place everyone talks about being the best in Myrtle Beach. However I have 50 years of experience in the food industry. Was with a big wholesale company for 10 years then I went in the military for 20 years. I have traveled around the globe and seafood is one of my specialties. I was one of the old-timers that used to drive all the way to Calabash to get Seafood in the olden days when the Grand Strand was the redneck Riviera. So I have high expectations when it comes to crab legs and Calabash Style seafood. This place is a marvelous facility. However they do not offer steamed oysters on the bar you have to order that special. And I found a lot of their Seafood was not as hot as it should be on the bar. For the price point there should have been steamed oysters on the bar. Also the crab legs which is what everybody Raves about didn't seem to be hot in temperature. A lot of the fried stuff like oysters had way too much better on them and they were way over cooked. I will let you know that is the fanciest bathroom I've ever been in a a crab buffet. And everybody from the waiters to the servers to the kitchen help look so top notch. But I'm not in seafood buffets for the glitz. I'm in there to eat a wheelbarrow full of crab legs and steamed oysters. That being the case this place is not satisfied my Buffet craving. I will tell you this without being bad about naming another restaurant. But the one towards Garden City that everybody goes to is worth every penny it's named after Mike the other one I found nearby here is in Restaurant Row Big Red Roof of Bennett's number 2. I know it is not kosher naming the crab buffets. I also would even say the giant crab in Restaurant Row deserves a nod. I would put this place in a class with Benjamin's Calabash in Restaurant Row everyone at Myrtle Beach talks about Georges and the original Benjamin's. However if they were real professional crab eaters. This place would be considered a heavily glitzy place. But the Main Attraction is not in the building.
