This restaurant is very nice - obviously fairly new. The wait staff was very well trained, very friendly and efficient. However it was $34.00 and the buffet experience was not really anything special for our party. My disappointment was the lack of clams on the buffet. I asked the wait staff about them and was told they rotate they would... More

We always stop by and have a great meal. Always the very best. The buffet is the very best in town. Love the crab legs.

Every time we come on vacation we go to Captain George's. The buffet food is very good and they keep it warm. The food on the menu is also good as well. Although they give you a very small bowl for a very large salad, therefore it's hard to eat it. The service could've been better. Our waitress did not... More

We arrived at Captain George at 4:00 as they were opening. We were promptly seated and had our drinks within minutes. We ordered the buffet. The food was fresh. All employees were friendly and service excellent

The best part of this place was the employees. Have never seen such an attentive wait staff at a buffet. The cooks also kept the buffet table well stocked. Food was good quality for such a lap large quantity.

Probably one of the better seafood buffet restaurants on the island but it's is a little expensive at about $35 per person. In my opinion it is only worth it if your going for crab legs. Food is buffet quality. I've also eaten at the Captain George's in Myrtle Beach which seamed better than the one on the Outer Banks.... More

Our usual restaurant choice for seafood was closed for the winter season, so we decided to try Captain Georges. We are so glad we did! We now have a new favorite. They had a much higher quality of buffet menu items. Yes its a little pricey, but it is comparable to the other restaurants in the area. The service was... More

Not impressed. Just a generic buffet with over flavoured and over salted food. Some of the food was in the open buffet too long. Nothing special or anything to remember. That's just my take on dining here. Sorry
