My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the huge buffet at Captain George's Seafood. Lots of oysters, crab and scallops as well as fried chicken and sirloin steak. At just under 35 dollars per person...good value for your money. Wait staff also on the ball.

First time visit to Williamsburg location. Prefer the Virginia beach spot better. Decor fresher and more appealing. Crab legs were cooked perfectly and fresh. Servers keep shell plates emptied quickly. Nothing to complain about. And enjoyed every bite.

One of the best seafood places I have ever eating at. For the price which is almost $40 a person but it is well worth it. Make sure you get there early because the line will be long after the first our or two of it being open. They have alot of different varieties when it comes to seafood and... More

I'm not a Seafood lover but my husband is. We didn't have a very long wait in line, even though the parking lot was almost full. He ate the crab legs, shrimp, and clams like there was no tomorrow. The fried chicken was tender and juicy, the pot roast had a nice flavor. Of course we didn't leave any room... More

Buffets are always fun especially for hungry people possessing different appetites. This was the spot! The whole restaurant is clean with a very elegant Appearance. However, if you don't want the buffet you can order a la carte. The food is good but discovered the shrimp was NOT deveined (shrimp poop), and the selection was basically fried. This is not... More

I really, really, like this restaurant. I can't say anything against it. The food is great. The service is great. I love the decor. Currently at about $34 per adult, I find that extremely reasonable for what you get on this buffet. Seriously. I think they could charge more and get away with it. Excellent Crab Legs, Oyster Rockefeller, beef... More

First, let me say that I am sharing this review with you between several excruciating restroom runs — no pun intended — after eating at Captain George's buffet 12 hours ago. So if my opinion seems to be a bit strained or tainted, those certainly are the appropriate words to use. This upscale "big boy buffet" clearly has good intentions... More

After our annual bowling tournament in Williamsburg in March, for the past 12 years, we eat out here after the second day - Sunday. Just went there again - 7 of us. Has always been excellent in all areas - price, quality of food, and service. I highly recommend.

Thank Joey L
