We've heard good things about Capt. George's. We went around 5 pm on a Friday night and it was already half full. We sampled most of the seafood dishes. We loved the crab legs the best. They had a good selection of salad items, desserts, and non-seafood item as well. We don't eat fried food often, but this was worth... More

A large selection of seafood to choose from. There is stuff for non fish eaters as well. The salad bar was very good. I was stuffed so didn't make it the dessert table, but it did look like a wide variety to choose from. The crab legs, oysters, and shrimp were all very good. The crab leg clusters go quick,... More

Captain George's was the best seafood buffet I have ever been to! The choices are endless and everything I had was very good. Very nice and clean inside and doesn't have that gross smell that most seafood buffet places have. The staff was very polite and more than helpful.

If you enjoy a buffet with a focus on seafood-Capt. George's is an excellent place to enjoy good food. Many people go there to eat the Crab legs and associated other seafood choices. At this Capt. Georges, the crab legs are juicy and cooked to perfection. There are many other items to choose from as well. I mix the crab... More

The buffet had crab claws that people liked and thr oysters were good. Most of the other seafood was poor. It may be a good place for those wanting large quantity of food. One person ordered a shrimp scampi and liked it.

Great selections on the buffet for my husband. Not so much for me with food allergies - very little gluten free options. They should have reduced the price when there was so little for me to eat. However, if you like crab legs, it is a must! My favorite part of the restaurant was the classic oldies music!!!

I think I tasted every seafood item on their buffet. Each was just as good as the other. If you are a crab legs fan, these were the easiest to get the sweet treats out of the shells. The buffet food was in boat structures. Nice touch. In addition, a see through fireplace added a little ambience. I would definitely... More

We were traveling to the OBX with another couple for my husband's birthday. We chose here for his birthday dinner on Sunday and went to an earlier seating to get $5 off the normal dinner pricing. This all you can eat buffet is awesome. Something's are better than others but you can not beat the crab legs. Fresh and delicious.... More
