We were on vacation looking for a great seafood buffet to eat at n came across this one. Well we should have looked at the food they offered before just diving in but we were hungry. The food was dry, and there were flies flying all arouNd the food. It was way over priced for the quality of food they... More

When we visited Captain Jack's a few years ago, the food was good and the prices were decent. We went back a few days ago and didn't even stay. The building is really small, the parking lot even smaller, and they wanted $33.00 a person—not including drinks! We're a family of five—that would have cost us well over $200 once... More

I hope this is not too criticial since I'm from New Orleans. It would have been okay of the buffet was 11.99 but 32.99 come on!! And that doesn't even include drinks. For that price I can go to Harrahs or any other casino and enjoy a five star buffet and not get sick afterwards. Yes unfortunately I had a... More

You can get as many crab legs as you can eat and you will definitely leave this place full on a reasonable budget.

We read all the reviews and my husband was uncertain about going here but we decided to give it a try and we are glad we did. The crab legs are what makes this place. They never once ran out of crab legs like a lot of restaurants do. They were always hot and fresh. The other food on the... More

If you are craving all you can eat crab legs this is the place for you. This place had the average seafood buffet style food but with a twist. I loved the fried selection which included shrimp, clams, oysters and scallops. They also have grilled fish and some other grilled selections. For the non seafood lovers they had Fried Chicken...

We were looking for somewhere to eat with out spending $50.00 on one meal and saw the lunch buffet price for $12.95, so we decided to try it. There was a really wide variety of food on the lunch buffet. There was no crab legs on the lunch buffet but you could pay extra and get some crab legs if... More

Only good thing about this place is crab legs. The other food is comparable to golden coral. Actually golden coral may be better. And at 33 dollars a person does the coke really need to be 2.75? Wouldn't go back
