Delicious, great variety and atmosphere. Clean and staff was friendly. Crab legs cooked to perfection! Desserts galore! Manager handling the lines of people waiting to be served ( there were 2-parties of 1, 2, 3, and I believe 4 to the left and 5 and over to the right), was so well organized and efficient as well as friendly. Came... More

Received a recommendation from a friend back home to try this restaurant out and we were sure glad that we did. I was hesitant about entering when the rooms exposed to the parking lot were empty but don't let that scare you away. Those were private party rooms. When we got inside the restaurant itself was pretty full and that... More

We've been in Richmond twice in the last month. Both times we drove on to Williamsburg to eat here. We tried it for the first time around 20 years ago and it's just as good now as it was then. The Norfolk Special and mussels are my favorite.

What a beautiful restaurant. The dishes were very fancy. We had cloth napkins. The food was so good. Everthing was fresh and tasty. The seafood was freshly caught, not lying around in fridge for days. They even had prime rib. The deserts were made fresh in house, super fresh. They had bars and bars of freshly made foods. Our server,... More

Service usually is great. All you can eat Seafood, American food, & lots of desserts. Avoid holidays, the line & parking is unbelievable...all day. Save some $$ by arriving 12 to 4 pm. Nice, clean atmosphere and good for all occasions. Careful of the crab leg clusters, 2 of us were a little sickened at one visit (no one else... More

Every night is seafood night. This is a buffet. You can still order entrees instead of going to the buffet. They have other offerings on the buffet besides seafood.

Captain George's is a destination seafood place. My wife and I have been there several times and will go there any time we are near there. The place is unbelievable, great food and service. It is everything it is advertised to be.

I have never seen seen a well appointed buffet, specializing in seafood. Ate our fill of crab legs and oysters (in several delicious forms, including Rockefeller). There were dozens of items we didn't get to including roast beef. The pecan pie was world class.

You have choice between sit down or buffet style. Personally I prefer buffet. It is $32.99 a person for all you can eat. You can't beat it!. Crablegs are great size and crab imperial is amazing.
